I missed this back in May, but the real estate site compiled a list of the best places to live for dog owners.

We scoured the country, factoring in weather, Walk Score, yard size, dog activities, Meetup groups, and the availability of dog sitters on After a lot of debate we settled on these 17 urban dog paradises.

You may be surprised by some of the choices, while others might be obvious. Here’s what they say about the #1 choice:

The Rose City falls over itself to spoil its dogs. With 33 dog parks, Portland has the most per capita of any large city in the United States. It also boasts 19 pet massage therapists, its own social network for dog lovers, and it’s one of‘s Top 20 Cities. The average household spends $32.38 per month on pets, which may include items off the Doggie Menu at Tin Shed Garden Café, the Kibbles-N-Bits breakfast at Lucky Labrador Brew Pub, or theTruffle Dog Training Seminar down the road in Eugene, Oregon.

What do you think of the list? Can you make a case for your own city?
