Oregon has become a go-to destination for outdoor enthusiasts looking to experience recreational activities with their pets. However, it can be difficult to find dog-friendly lodging if you’re planning a few extra days exploring the inspiring landscapes of the Northwest. Many hotels have unfriendly pet policies, and some even charge exorbitant fees just to have your dog come along. But don’t resign yourself to calling up the pet sitter yet.
