This is another Dog Friendly email- so of course, if you’re not smitten with the four legged beasts just disregard. It’s Summer… time for alot of fun events and activities. For dog lovers, it is especially nice to be able to bring your best friend. Of course, well-socialized dogs and observing the rules are a must!
Here’s a few events and places that welcomes polite dogs:

Dog Friendly businesses: Western Farm Center is a special place to bring your dog and it’s fun to socialize with other dogs and their owners. The friendly folk at the register will even offer your beloved pet a treat. The Santa Rosa Visitor’s Center knows that many people travel with their pets- they offer treats and a cool bowl of water. D’Argenzio Winery is a wonderful place to socialize & drink wine- an extra bonus is that well-mannered dogs are welcomed.

Dog Park Ettiquette Tip: When a new dog enters the park- call your dogs to you so that the new dog and owner can enter the park. This makes for a smoother, calmer transition for the new dog that’s joining in.
DeTurk Dog Park needs your plastic bags– bread bags, newspaper bags, grocery bags. Leave them hanging on the fence… and we’ll take it from there… thanks!
