A Pet-Friendly Paso Robles

Spending your time in wine country can be incredible, especially when you can share that experience with your pawed friends. But remember, not everyone loves dogs, and we want to ensure that Paso Robles is a place where everyone can feel welcome and safe. So, as a general rule, please keep your pets leashed at all times unless you’re within one of the many off-leash dog parks. Please also make sure to clean up after your pets and respect those wineries and vineyards that are not listed as pet friendly. It’s not that they don’t like pooches, they just may have resident dogs (or cats) that prefer two-legged visitors over four-legged visitors. Paso Robles Wine Country is a beautiful place, and we thank you for keeping it that way for all our guests.
