The Dog Lover’s Companion to California has the inside scoop on the best parks, dog runs, beaches, forest preserves, ski areas, pet-friendly businesses, and much more. Local author Maria Goodavage and her trusty companion Jake have dug up many surprising resources available to dogs in the Golden State, such as baseball games, summer camps, ski areas, and pet parades. For the less outdoorsy dog, there are doggy spas, art openings, and even drive-ins! Packed with illustrations by celebrated cartoonist Phil Frank, as well as helpful maps, up-to-date leash laws, and a useful “paw” ranking system for all locations in the book, The Dog Lover’s Companion to California is a pet’s best friend.
