Dog Parks + Dog-Friendly Beaches 

Folks who live in North County San Diego have tons of opportunities for outdoor activities within just a short driving distance, including some of the best beaches and parks in the county. However, most beaches and many parks are not dog-friendly, which means we often have to leave our best pal at home when we head out for a day at the beach or a picnic with friends. Check out the guide below for a full list of dog-friendly beaches and parks.

Dog Boarding 

Going on vacation is supposed to be relaxing, but the days leading up to the getaway can cause some anxiety. Making sure the passports are handy, packing the right clothes, getting someone to watch the house… and don’t forget the pets! Worrying about what to do with the furry family members can take all the fun out of a holiday getaway.
