Fort Funston

I can't believe no one told me about this wonderful park sooner! I found out about it from another doggie blog and just couldn't wait to take Maya there after reading all the great reviews on Yelp. The whole place is like a super big dog park with trails, trees, hills, and even a beach.

It was our first time letting Maya off leash in a non-enclosed area. We were a bit hesitant at first, but to our surprise, Maya did extremely well. While walking down the trails, she would run a few steps ahead of us and stop to wait till we catch up. While chasing other dogs on the beach, she would run back every now and then to check on us. Though her recall wasn't perfect, it was pretty reliable. She even gave up chasing a group of birds and came back to us. We were so proud of her!

Our entire family fell in love with this park in a heartbeat. It'll be hard to go back to the old boring, fenced-in dog parks from now on. Just kind of wish it's closer to where we live, but the extra miles are totally worth it.

  1. Isn't it amazing?! I can't believe anyone would want to take that place away from the off-leash doggies... There's TONS of room to share!

    Maya looks awesome romping around on the beach.
