The dogs have long been full members of the families. Many owners don’t treat them like animals but like their best friends. And rightly so, because the dog’s devotion and gratitude are limitless.
Lucky for us, Sacramento is great for dog owners. Large parks, infrastructure for dogs, houses with yards, all this makes life with a dog a pleasure. But that’s not all, of course. You can easily take your furry (or not-so) friend to a restaurant or bar.
This has a beneficial effect on the socialization of the dog, and it will be much safer for you to take the dog with you and not leave it alone at home. You can even make a date for the dogs at your local bar. Of course, on the condition that the dog is trained and is not dangerous to others.
For happy dog owners, we’ve compiled a list of the best dog-friendly spots in Sacramento. Fortunately, there are more and more of them.
Let’s start our list with bars that you can easily visit with your four-legged friend. They will always be happy to offer a bowl of the purest water for your dog.

We are sure that you are madly in love with your furry friend, and you forgive them even bad behavior, but not everyone around is obliged to do this.
Therefore, before visiting public places with your dog, it is best to properly prepare. Here are some tips that we suggest a responsible dog owner can use.
And of course, your dog should be trained in the basic rules of behavior in public places — listen to you and your commands, not be aggressive or loud.
If you are just starting to take your dog with you, then it is better to start from quiet places, without loud music, and visit them at a time when there are fewer people there. And after that, you can take the fluffy to concerts with live music.
