I was contacted by the folks at Nick’s Cove, asking if Chloe and I would like to visit and let Dog Jaunt readers know what we thought of the experience. I instantly said yes, but I felt a bit of a fraud, since Nick’s Cove has long been on my list of places to check out. Then again, it might have taken me awhile to get there: We have generous friends who live nearby, and chances are we would have continued to … Read more

The first two links I have for you this week highlight a couple of intrepid travelers-with-dogs: ohmidog‘s John Woestendiek is soldiering across the U.S. on a minimal budget with his dog Ace (I only came across the saga a few posts in, but it begins here), and filmmaker and journalist Allison Otto travels throughout the U.S. with her dog Cosette (Otto’s blog is Small Dog on the Go, and she was profiled this week on Take Paws).

Farther north on the California Coast, Bay Area Hiker has posted a … Read more
There are several companies providing ferry services across and around the Bay. I’m happy to report that all of them allow small dogs in carriers on board.
The Blue & Gold Fleet, based at Pier 39 in San Francisco, runs shoals of ferries around the Bay. Their routes include sightseeing tours to Angel Island and around the Bay, and regularly-scheduled trips to Tiburon, Sausalito, Alameda/Oakland and Vallejo (here’s a map of their routes). Their (pet) dog … Read more
There are lots of providers of public transit in the San Francisco Bay Area. Stick with me, and we’ll work through the most prominent ones.
First and foremost is Muni, or the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA). Muni runs bus, trolley bus, light rail, cable car and streetcar lines, largely within San Francisco city and county limits. Muni’s pet policy is as follows:
Non-service animals may not ride weekdays 5-9 am and 3-7 pm.
