Dog Friendly Place ?

Hi - I want to take my senior lab on a vacation to big bear thinking it would be a great place for her to swim!

Can you please recommend a place to stay that would have easy access to swimming and the town?

I read about The Big Bear Frontier as a place to go. Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions would be great.

That looks like a good place, as far as I can tell. We have our own cabin, so I can't really comment on rooms, but the location is good. There are a lot of Dog friendly beaches and restaurants in the area. Hope you enjoy your stay.

If you go the vacation rental route, be sure to include PETS in your amenity choices, as VRBO, HomeAway, even Airbnb has the ability to sort for that.

Most places won't let you leave your dog unattended, so research kennels for day use, too.
