Calero’s southern location does make it subject to more extreme temperatures and more rainfall than the central regions of San Jose, however, pedestrians with pets still enjoy plenty or warm weather and sunshine.
The terrain is flat and it is easy for owners and dogs to walk about the block without having to navigate steep inclines. There are paved sidewalks and some grassy berms to separate pedestrian ways from roadways, and provide some natural terrain for doggie paws strolling the streets of Calero.
