Pet owners will find a local veterinarian, ABC Veterinary Hospital Pacific Beach, located in the region and several pet stores including Amore Pet Shop, Noah’s Natural Pet Market, and two large chain pet supply stores that are easily accessible. If you are walking with your dog and get a little hungry, numerous local restaurants allow dogs on their outdoor seating areas including Koffee Kat, Backyard Kitchen and Tap, Taco Surf, Fat Fish, Cabo Cantina, and Board and Brew.
Homes in the area are single-family detached dwellings situated on well landscaped and maintained private properties with large trees in abundance. Sidewalks and grass berms are prevalent in the region and you and your pup won't have to share the road with local traffic.
Commercial thoroughfares and streets near beaches and waterfront parks have heavier pedestrian and vehicular traffic, so make sure your dog is securely leashed.
Pacific Beach is home to the 79-acre Kate Sessions Park which is a dog-friendly park where your canine companion is welcome on a leash. The park features views of the bay and ocean from its elevated terrain. The southern section features open grassy areas and the northern section has rougher high terrain and natural habitat.
Check out the Capehart Dog Park on the east side of the community.! Although not near the waterfront, this one-acre park has separate fenced off-leash areas for large and small dogs. The Ocean Front Walk is a 3.2-mile promenade along the Pacific coast on the west side of the community. There are shops and eateries along the trail and many are dog-friendly!
Crown Point Park and De Anza Park are two more waterfront parks with grassy areas, paved paths, and beaches. Dogs are not permitted on sandy beaches, so check local postings for accessibility off-season or during evening hours.
