May is National Pet Month, so real estate website Estately decided to list the 17 best U.S. cities for dogs. Factors considered: weather, Walk Score, yard size, dog activities, Meetup groups, and the availability of dog sitters on Rover.com. The number one spot went to Portland, which, whatever. San Francisco made the list at #5 because it has the third most dog parks of any city, and Walk Score has ranked it second nationally for walkability. Other reasons included dog-friendly restaurants with patio dining and over 50 different dog Meetup groups.
