2. Blow off Steam at One of Lodi’s Dog Parks
There are five dog parks located within the city that dogs and owners are free to enjoy! The most popular doggie destinations would be Vinewood Park and Beckman Park. These are both fenced in parks for your pet to run and play off-leash!
Dog’s can also visit Peterson Park, Lawrence Park and parts of Lodi Lake.
3. Explore Mother Nature Together
Speaking of Lodi Lake Park, there’s nothing quite like taking a kayak on the water with your pooch and paddling around.
For longer trips, you could even kayak up the Mokelumne River and see how your dog reacts to the sights, sounds and smells of nature!
4. Visit Lodi’s Wineries and Breweries
Whether you prefer your adult beverage in a stein or a stem, there are plenty of dog-friendly wineries and breweries in Lodi to visit.
Now, remember, grapes are toxic to dogs, so if you do visit vineyards, make sure you don’t allow your dog to nibble on them! Instead, bring some dog treats!
Vineyards like m2 Wines, Heritage Oak Winery, Dancing Coyote and Oak Farm Vineyards (who even have an Instagram dedicated to the four-legged visitors) are perfect for a visit together, though many of Lodi’s wineries are pet-friendly.
