    Reviewing the US can be a bit challenging because it is a huge country with many variations by state. The requirements to enter are incredibly easy if you are coming from somewhere like the EU, but really difficult if you are coming from Africa. When I brought my dog from Kenya to California and then later from Ecuador to California, it wasn’t actually that difficult on the US side of things. We needed a rabies vaccine and a health certificate and that was pretty much it. Now, if you are coming from a country with rabies, the requirements are really tough and require a lot of advanced planning, documents and tests. Yikes!
    It was also fairly easy to fly with our dog from one state to the other. We had a health certificate that no one looked at, and he flew in the cabin.
    California has great weather all year round making it a great state for traveling with dogs. Pets aren’t usually allowed inside of restaurants or anywhere with food especially, but because of our good weather, you can eat outside in the daytime pretty much all year round and your dog can join you. There are a few stores dogs can go in such as hardware stores and pet stores (see photo). Leashed dogs are allowed in a lot of recreational places like parks, beaches, trails etc. They can even go to designated areas in national parks. Off-leashed options tend to be pretty few and far between. It’s not too hard to find a place to stay that allows pets. It will just cost you extra. Sometimes that means a pet fee from a hotel. Other times like with airbnbs, it may not include a fee, but they just tend to be pricier when dogs are allowed.
    Americans tend to love their pets and treat them like parts of the family. However, there is also a lot of sensitivities towards people with allergies, so that limits where they are able to go.
    Overall, the US is a good country for living and traveling with pets.
