You can take your best pal with you on these getaways around the West
Play & stay: Coronado Dog Beach (200 Ocean Blvd.) is a treat for your pet. What's more, your dog can ride the waves every June at the Loew's Surf Dog Competition at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort (from $189; dogs $25 onetime fee; loewshotels.com), 20 minutes south of San Diego. When booking you stay at any time of year, look for pet-friendly packages that cover the pet fee and provide doggy room service as well.
Shop: Wag’n Tails’ self-wash area benefits from the store owner’s freely admitted fastidiousness: The place is spotless and cleaned between each dog, ideal for a post-surf bath. 945 Orange Ave.; 619/435-3513.
