Here are a few links that might help you plan your trip and a few fun things to do before/after the tournament. There are some great places/trails to take your dog or if you want an extended vacation or trip….the foothills and mountains offer some choices! So, please…
COME SIT STAY RACE and then STAY longer!!
The Mutts love Millerton State Park
There is a dog park within Woodward Park, however the entire park offers some nice on leash walking/jogging and squirrel gazing. Unfortunately, you can’t go swimming in the lakes within the park, however there is a nice running/walking path down to the San Joaquin River where people have taken their dogs for a quick refreshing dip.
A little more of a drive, but a really fun place to get to in the Sierra National Forest, is Shaver Lake, approx. one hour from Fresno. From there, The Dinkey Lakes Wilderness area offers even further adventures for you and your four legged friends!
Of course, there is ALWAYS the beauty of Yosemite if that is your destination! National Parks don’t allow dogs on trails, but Wawona, the South entrance to the park which is just about an hour and a half drive from Fresno, does offer a campground and a 3.5 mile trail that you can take with your Pup called the Meadow Lake Loop.
