|Many national parks and monuments are not dog friendly with dogs only allowed in drive-in campgrounds, in parking lots and along paved roads but not on trails or in back country areas or in buildings.
Most of Oregon is very dog friendly but depending on the time of year you travel outside activities may not be pleasant and even driving places can be a challenge due to flooding, landslides and downed trees.
There are brew pubs that are pet friendly, pretty much any restaurant with outdoor seating that doesn't require walking into the restaurant to reach allows dogs, some shops allow dogs that can be carried.
All beaches are public and pet friendly. Dogs under voice control are allowed off leash on non-state park beaches. But ocean temperatures are too cold for swimming without wet suits.
Most state parks are pet friendly, the exceptions being ones where the trails are too dangerous for dogs and people to pass safely or the historic sites.
Oregon is pretty diverse: inactive and extinct volcanoes, almost year round skiing, beaches, whale watching, high desert, waterfalls, wineries, microbreweries, etc.
Mt. St. Helens in Washington is a nice day trip from Portland but is not dog friendly.
