How to Experience Lake Tahoe With a Dog

There are so many ways to spend a day in South Lake Tahoe with your dog. Finding pet-friendly accommodations in Lake Tahoe is easy and our listing of various pet-friendly locations takes the hard work out of the equation. Once you’re here, there are a few things we’d recommend to ensure you and your pup have the best experience possible. 

  1. Please don’t leave your dog alone in your room. Your pup wants to experience Lake Tahoe as much as you do, and with plenty of hiking trails, pet-friendly beaches, and ample outdoor space, you’ll both have a much better time when you experience this unforgettable location together. 
  2. Bring plenty of water, food, and doggy waste bags. Nobody likes to find waste where it shouldn’t be. If you happen to forget something crucial, many hotels will have some spare resources you can pick up. Speaking of picking up, please always remember to pick up after your pet and help us keep Lake Tahoe beautiful for everyone. 
  3. Please keep the noise to a minimum. While there are plenty of hotels with pet-friendly accommodations, not everyone at the hotel has a dog. Please ensure your fur friend is well behaved both around people and other dogs, as well as keeping the excited barking to a minimum as much as possible.
