Coastside DOG is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the rural dog-friendly lifestyle and economy that have become a cherished way of life on the San Mateo County coast. We do this by promoting responsible dog walking, advocating for dog-friendly trails and beaches, and celebrating our numerous dog-friendly businesses.
Stretching from Pacifica to Half Moon Bay, the San Mateo County coastside has long been a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and dog lovers. We believe that protecting our area’s natural environment, rural character, and dog economy go hand-in-hand. We believe that responsible dog ownership is at the heart of ensuring that we have spaces to hike and to recreate with our furry companions. We are committed to community, common sense approaches, and solutions.
