Top Ten Doggone Good Spots
By Eileen Garvin
The Pet Works, Astoria
A sandy dog is a happy dog. Owners will be happy to find this self-service dog wash and pet store in downtown Astoria. Shampoo, brushes, towels and dryers provided. You bring the dirty pup.
Warrenton Dog Park, Warrenton
This yappy playground is the first fully fenced dog park on the Oregon Coast. Located at the trailhead to the Warrenton Waterfront Trail, the park covers two-thirds of an acre with
separate areas for large and small dogs.
Dog-friendly town, Cannon Beach
Cottages, hotels and vacation rentals offer plenty of options for travelers with tails. Miles of beach, like the Tolovana Beach State Recreation Site, and Ecola Creek Beach are perfect for digging, stick chasing and wave dodging.
Dog-friendly town, Lincoln City
Many oceanfront hotels and motels welcome canine travelers with their humans. Check out Roads End and D River state recreation sites — pooch paradises with lots of room for stretching those four legs.
Rogue Ales Public House, Newport
It’s a Rover Nation at Rogue Nation. Rogue Ales Public House has a year-round dog-friendly patio and an
exclusive canine menu. Don’t miss the annual Brewer’s Memorial Ale Fest, a celebration of the late,
beloved Labrador of brewer John Maier, held each May.
Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial
State Park Campground
The second largest camping spot in the state, Jessie Honeyman has much to offer canine campers, including two miles of dunes for sand sprints and two lakes for dog paddling.
Dog-friendly town, Bandon
Dog Style Boutique, dog-friendly vacation rentals and access to great beaches like Bullards Beach, Face Rock and Dew Point make Bandon a great spot for Spot.
Dog Style Boutique, Bandon
Visitors love this store for its natural, raw Bone Appetit dog food, made
in Bandon from human-grade, USDA-inspected meats and organic fruits and vegetables. Pick up a rain jacket for your pooch and a stylish leash
Woof’s Dog Bakery, Gold Beach
Stop here for healthy, freshly baked doggie treats, including Maddie’s Mini Morsels (a molasses cookie with yogurt center) Terrier Tartletts (peanut butter
