We know many of you love your pets as much as we do, which is why we’ve made Big Bear Frontier one of the area’s only pet friendly resorts. When you visit Big Bear Frontier you’ll be greeted by our two resident dogs, Precious and Dexter, who are usually hanging out in the lobby. Precious is the friendly German shepherd who has come to work every day for the past three years and Dexter is the Miniature Pincher that loves everyone and wants everyone to love him. Dexter is usually waiting for the Front Desk Agents to get out of “his” chair behind the check in desk so he can play.
Dog-friendly Activities in Big Bear Lake
Dogs love it here so we encourage you to bring your furry friends with you on your vacation. There is space to run and play and they love to jump into the water on our lakefront. Bring your Frisbee and jump right in there with them! There are plenty of grassy areas throughout Big Bear Frontier for your pet to exercise and roam while you explore the property.
Big Bear Lake has 22 miles of shoreline to explore with your pet. Take a leisurely walk around The Village or on the bike path and stop at one of the many restaurants with outdoor patios that allow you to keep your dog at your feet while you eat. BLT’s and Saucy Mama’s Pizzeria are two that come to mind.
Many guests bring their pets to Big Bear Lake for their birthday or the anniversary date of their adoption and some local pet “parents” make a trip up the mountain every two or three months to give their animals some relief from the Southern California heat. One special guest brings her four dogs to see us several times a year and her dogs love to play in the water and enjoy the lakefront. We always look forward to her visit. We have many valued guests who return year after year because their dogs are at home with us.
If you’re considering a Big Bear Vacation you don’t have to leave your pet home alone or take them to a boarding kennel. Our simple pet friendly policies are outlined here. Bring your furry friends with you so they can enjoy their “time off” as much as you do!
