pEnjoy a private tour of the Wine Country with your K9 Friends! You Sip, while your Dog sits.. By your side at one of the 50+ Dog-Friendly Wineries, in the Beautiful Napa or Sonoma Valleys.
In case there is a special winery that you wish to visit, however are not fond of four-legged friends, then GOOD DOG! Wine Tours can set up a "Take-n-Play" visit. We take you to your favorite winery, and play with your pal outside.
After 35 years working around the world as a professional animal trainer and more recently being involved in the wine tasting Business I have combined both passions and started DOG FRIENDLY WINE TOURS. I am happy to share my knowledge of the wonderful wine tasting regions of Napa, Sonoma and surrounding areas while I take care of you and your four legged friends!
This is not where Max should be, if his owners are out enjoying the day!
The cost of a Dog Friendly Wine Tour is $65 per hour with a 4 hour minimum. If there are additional adults add $10 per hour for each additional adult. Please call for more information.
Our own dog (Monkey) loves to come along on Up-Valley outings!
You WALK with your dog, You RUN with your dog, You TRAVEL with your dog, Why not Wine Taste with them as well?

Dan is a pleasure to deal with, we took the wine tour last
Saturday 5/2/15 and it was the best 6 hours of our 8 day trip across the US.
Dan is punctual and very knowledgeable of the area; if you are looking for that
small family owned vineyard with AMAZING wine, he is the one to talk to. Five
stars to Dan. Needless to say, our Scottish Terrier (Gilmour) was in the best
hands with Dan throughout our wine extravaganza.

We called Dan last minute to schedule a tour (he does
minimum 4hr tours) and he was thankfully available. He picked us and our two
large dogs up in a spacious van and we were on our way. He asked my preference
in wine (i.e. Red, White, Sweet, Dry) and I told him my favorite was Cabs, he
made sure we stopped at good spots known for their Cabs. We stopped at 6
different wineries all of which were VERY dog friendly and had AMAZING wine. He
was very knowledgeable about the winery industry, so along the way he answered
any questions we had on the area. At the first stop he saw that my dogs were a
little rusty in "heeling" ;) so he offered a few suggestions and
within 10m they were like knew dogs. It was fantastic to then enjoy the rest of
our vacation with heeling dogs! :) He even brought tennis balls and water for
our dogs and offered to stay with the dogs to let us taste on our own or come
in with the dogs or let us go in with the dogs alone, he was very
accommodating. We felt very special to have a private tour with a guide that
knew personally a lot of people along the way ;) My last plug for Dan is the
price, comparing his prices with all other private tours in Napa he was
actually cheaper! AND you could bring your dogs, what more could you ask for! I
was very happy with our day and it was definitely the highlight of the trip :)
