I just saw this in a magazine at the vets...hot damn why can't I recall all of those cities now?

Most of them were in California so I'm going to go with SF on this one.

Austin was the only city in Texas.

I'm a dog lover- I have a Doberman

When I was in San Francisco, I loved seeing all the dogs people were walking. It came to my surprise how pet friendly the city was.

It's a tie between Biloxi, Mississippi, Moore, Oklahoma and Detroit.

Oooh, I forgot about Detroit and its legendary reputation as a dog-walker's paradise.

Good call.

I know the question is people walking the dogs, but SF is definitely the most dog-friendly American city we've ever lived in (or visited); dogs on the bus, dogs in the stores, dogs waiting in line at Macy's to see Santa. Not to mention major political flaps about dog rights versus human rights; taking on the dog lobby in SF is a very politically dangerous proposition. I've read that there are more dogs than kids in SF, and I believe it. And since so many people have either no or have small yards, the dogs get a lot of walks.

I wish they allowed dogs on CTA. I was thinking only service dogs could go in SF?
