San Francisco

San Francisco is one of the most exciting cities in the United States, Visit the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, the Pier, then head to one of the 56 dog friendly parks the city has to offer for some recreational time with your puppy. If you are tired of the crowds, you can take your pup hiking outside the city, or visit Napa Valley to enjoy some wine (responsibly).
