Yes. My boyfriend and I have a four year old chocolate lab, Oso, and I frequently dog sit for a nine year old dalmatian mix, Ricky.
Favorite with them is definitely Indian Valley in Novato. Dogs are allowed off leash, there is a seasonal pond for swimming dogs and several different trails of all kinds...flat to stairs. The views from some of the trails are amazing! Another favorite is Dillon Beach. As far as without, who goes anywhere without them :-)
Oso and Ricky just enjoy being outside. Oso has more energy, but haven't gone on an outing yet that they didn't like.
Oso couldn't be more friendly. Ricky is deaf and is therefore a little less outgoing, but is as sweet as can be.
My name is Amanda. I will be joining the group with my boyfriend Daniel. I grew up in WA and he is from Novato. We currently live in Petaluma. Both of us are dog and outdoor lovers so were excited to see this group.
