Hi, my name is Stas. I love dogs so much. In my family there were always dogs with whom I spent a lot of time. I also had a successful experience with the Rover service, but because of the move to San Diego, I decided to try a new WAG service. I think I will quickly find the approach to your pet, and I will also do my best to make your dog happy.

Dog Boarding in Encinitas

Situated between Los Angeles and San Diego, Encinitas, California, is a tiny beach city on the Pacific Coast. Known mostly for being a prime surf spot, Encinitas is on its way to another claim to fame - a dog-friendly, Cali city! While it's certainly not as pup-driven as some other California cities (San Diego and San Francisco, we're looking at you), it's climbing the ranks to becoming a dog-friendly atmosphere. Much of this can be credited to the shelters and their activity in this area. 

One of biggest shelters that services Encinitas is the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. This organization is a non-profit, charitable organization that's dedicated to creating safe spaces for animals in need, fostering and caring for them, and then seeking out forever homes for pups. Though their main goal is to provide adoption options for the Southern California area, they also host and sponsor many educational programs, provide vet care for pups in need, and work hard to continue spreading the word about proper pet care. 

Another, smaller organization in Encinitas is the K9 Connection, a non-profit rescue that's been open since 2005 with the goal to find homes for pups in need. Either of these fine establishments should be on your list the next time you are looking to bring a new furry friend home!

Doggo Trails

It wouldn't be California without plenty of outside activities that you and your pup can explore together, and Encinitas is nothing if not a space for exploration! Some of the most popular trails in the area include the San Elijo Lagoon Trail and the Village Park Trail. The Lagoon Trail is a 3-mile hike that will take you and Fido about two hours to complete together. It's a fun hike, but watch out, it can get muddy! The other fun trail, Village Park, is a low-key nature hike where your pooch can run around off-leash!

What good is a city without a few off-leash dog parks where your pooch can run free? Luckily, Encinitas has a variety of pawpular parks that your pup can explore. One of the most well-known parks is the Viewpoint Off-Leash Dog Area, a play area with designated hours where Fido can run free! This dog haven is a well-shaded, city park. Another park your pooch might enjoy is the Maggie Houlihan Memorial Dog Park, a separated, fenced-in doggie play area that has plenty of space for free-running, lots of shade, and enough watering stations for everyone.
