Information about the Sausalito Dog Park:
The City of Sausalito has very strict leash laws that apply to all locations inside of this community. Once outside of the community, strict county pet rules stop all pet owners from allowing their companions the luxury to run and play. In 1999, Sausalito dog owner Diane Chute began encouraging others to share in her dreams of having a community-accessible, clean and safe, free-run playground for all local dogs and their guardians.
Remington Dog Park was named after Diane Chute’s friendly Labrador “Remington” in 1999. Today, this park is still called Remington Dog Park by long-time San Francisco Bay area residents, and more commonly known in print as the donation-funded Sausalito Dog Park. Visitors to Sausalito can access this safe, caged and huge free-run park at the northern end of Bridgeway at: 100 Ebbtide Avenue, Sausalito.
The Sausalito Dog Park is used by local canine enthusiasts and by the lucky crated dogs that ride the ferryboats over from San Francisco to run and play in this pet-friendly park. Visitors to the park are provided with choices in comfortable benches, multiple water spigots and bowls, a community dog-toy collection and handy waste-material disposal equipment. The extra-large romping field is padded with sawdust for clean daily fun.
Many types of people take advantage of the Sausalito Dog Park; seniors meet to chat, homework is done at the benches and business executives can easily slide their canine workout routines into the dawn-to-dusk park schedule. What visitors to Sausalito need to know is that dog guardians must stay on-site with their pets at all times. Immediately outside of the caged dog park field, tickets can be issued to people violating leash laws.

Immunization Papers: In all areas of California, it is wise for visitors to carry a certified copy of their dog immunization records for heartworm, rabies and distemper. Some travel experts recommend securing a certified copy of pet immunization records to the travel crate, keeping a second certified copy in your wallet, and attaching a third non-certified copy of these important records to the dog collar on a digital memory card.
Sturdy 6-Foot Leash: In most areas of Marin County, and for all areas in the City of Sausalito, dogs must be “controlled” on a six-foot leash whenever they leave their own yard.
