Word of Mouth knows that some of our kids come with four legs and waggy tails. Mendocino County is here for you with some locations that will make your pup's heart soar.

Circa ’62 in Little River has indoor dog-friendly seating, as well as a sun-dappled patio. The “Stop, Drop & Drool“ menu includes a scramble of ground beef and dog cookie crumbles. The doggie lounge is decorated in polaroid snaps of canine visitors. The names are as varied as the furry faces. Clearly this place is dog-approved!

Beachcomber Motel in Fort Bragg rolls out the red carpet for your pet. Special rooms and treats keep everyone comfy, and the Coastal Trail runs for 10 miles along the waves just outside the door. A huge dog park awaits near the Noyo Headlands end of the trail, complete with views of the sea so you can watch whales while you play.

Sheepdung Ranch in the hills above Boonville has miles of hiking trails to tire out your pup. The location provides access to local tasting rooms, many of which, like Lula Cellars and Navarro Vineyards, welcome four-legged guests.

The Willits Dog Park on E. Commercial Street near Roots of Motive Power and the county museum has views of Mount Sanhedrin and tons of space. Swing by The Book Juggler in town to say hi to Zeus, the Jack Russell terrier, while you browse the aisles. A tie-up leash bar and dedicated water dish in the shade keep canine visitors happy. JD Redhouse is right next door, if you want to grab an ice cream cone after your walk.
