I will be relocating to Sonoma County in 2 weeks. I have narrowed down my choices to Petaluma and Healdsburg. I love both towns so it is a complete toss up....except for my dog. She is a very active dog that needs to be able to run in open space and have access to swimming (lake, ocean, river). This being said, Petaluma seemed to be closer to more hiking and open space than Healdsburg for off leash dogs. (ie Mount Burdell, Dillon Beach) Does anyone have any advice about where is the best place if you love to get your dog out....and not on a leash???

I am doing the same, in 3 months... We are looking for places in Sebastopol though... let me know if you know places like this as far as apartments go, we haven't yet most say small dogs under 25 pounds... but the search has only been 2 days so far.

There is a great dog friendly beach down around in Daly City, it is worth the drive.

I'm a dog owner, but we live in the city... so I can't really say, since I don't know that area very well. If you want to know where to take the pooch around here, though, I'd be happy to offer some help. Good luck!

There is an off leash dog park in Petaluma called Rocky Dog Park off of Lakeville and Casa Grande.
There are many parks in Petaluma that have off leash dog hours, you can find the details at the city of Petaluma website under the Parks and Rec. info.
I know nothing of off leash parks in Healdsburg, but you may want to try their city website as well.

OMG let me tell you =-) I lived in Cotati for a few years, right next to Petaluma. I am a big advocate of "off lease" hiking!! I had a working dog that loved to run. There is a leash law in ALL of sonoma county which frankly, sucks! I got caught a few times. It's a 50 dollar ticket if they choose to do so.
We always traveled to Marin County. Just about 20 min down the 101 is Mt Burdell (which is the other half of Olompali state park) then further down Atherton ave is.. INdian Tree... something I want to say which is hills and hill of beautiful furry green open space. It's very quiet and serene w/ hours of hiking. (there's a single track leash law there, but no one is there on weekdays) Mt Burdell is great for a good work out. Check out Bahiker.com Marin county has "voice command in open space" rule.. and tons of really good hiking. SOnoma County if full of Private land, and State parks that aren't so dog friendly
