Restaurants, hotels, and even wineries in the Temecula Valley are recognizing the prevalence of guests who enjoy having a canine companion by their side. Thus the ever-increasing popularity of DOG FRIENDLY establishments in the Temecula - Murrieta area.
We have over 30 dog friendly restaurants and approximately 24 dog friendly wineries in the area.
Given the choice, many local diners and visitors from out of town will choose a restaurant or hotel where they can bring their well-mannered pooch over one which does not allow dogs. Temecula is known for its beautiful sunny days, and it can be quite hazardous to leave your dog (or your grandmother) in the car when you stop for a bite to eat. Yet another reason to seek out a place that welcomes your dog with open arms.
"…Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country has become the popular, new, pet-friendly place to stay and play," says Kimberly Adams, Temecula Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau, President and CEO. Read the article…
|Winter is upon us. Temecula is so beautiful at this time of year, with golden leaves on the trees and grapevines. It's gotten cooler, but not too cold for an occasional outing around town with our furry friends. Parks, walking trails and dog friendly wineries await!

WINES FOR CANINES, the annual event which benefits our local shelter, Animal Friends of the Valleys, will take place again this coming March. Last year's event was held at Wiens Family Cellars, where a wonderful buffet luncheon was served. Abacus provided live music, followed by an uplifting video, a live auction of donated items and a FIDO FASHION SHOW of adoptable dogs
. Back in September, a lovely evening of music was held to benefit VILLA CHARDONNAY, one of our local horse rescue organizations.
Both these events are supported by the Animal Advocates Committee of the Temecula Valley Woman's Club. It's so nice to see our locals come out in force when the animals need our help.
CAUSE FOR PAWS "Woofs and Purrs in the Vines" takes place every October at Oak Mountain Winery here in Temecula. This event raises funds for pets with diabetes.
IN THE NEWS:
|CAROL'S RESTAURANT at Baily Winery here in Temecula is a favorite of our black lab, Mardi. They bring him a treat and a fresh bowl of water with a smile - he never even has to ask!
We enjoy the wine country ambience and cuisine of Carol's outdoor dining area, and it's a pleasure to bring our four footed friend along for the outing.
Mmmm, fresh water with ice cubes for Mardi!
|Fashion Island, Newport Beach, California, is also a great example of a dog friendly setting, and serves as a good model for others around the state.
At Fashion Island, Mardi has visited Restoration Hardware to review towel bars, he's taken a peek at laptops in The Apple Store, (of course, all stores practice a "you break it, you buy it" policy) and he has enjoyed lounging by our side at many an outdoor restaurant. As Fashion Island is a very popular place for dog owners, a trainer in the area even takes students there for "final exams," amidst the many distractions.
Even Los Angeles County has lifted their ordinance about dogs being allowed on restaurant patios. "We're an outdoor city -- people like to go places with their pets -- and the trend has been going more that way," said Jan Selder, Director of Valley Operations for L.A. Animal Services. "This new ordinance will hopefully encourage more and more diners to bring along their newly adopted shelter pets" (hint-hint, wink-wink).Read the article…
