Dog Boarding in Oceanside

If ever there was a city more aptly named than Oceanside, we haven't yet heard of it. This town, which juts up against the Pacific Ocean, is the typical, sunny, California image you'd conjure up in your head. But while you're picturing sandy beaches, and salty waves, make sure you leave room for a bunch of pups, because Oceanside is progressively becoming more and more dog-friendly. Though it's not in line with some of Cali's other big-name, pooch-tastic cities yet (we're looking at you, San Francisco), it's grown quite a bit in the past few years. Now, restaurants and bars are moving towards allowing doggos, and shelters in the area are hosting pup events that are fun for you and your pooch to attend!

One of the largest shelters serving Oceanside is the San Diego Humane Society. Located a few miles away, this shelter has been serving San Diego County since 1880, making it the oldest non-profit organization in the county! It has campuses in Escondido, Oceanside, and San Diego. The shelter offers hundreds of programs, takes in abandoned and homeless animals, provides foster programs, and aims to find forever homes for the pooches in its care. 

Another big organization in the Oceanside area is the Last Chance at Life Organization. This all-breed dog organization is focused on helping animals in San Diego County, with a majority of their pets being cared for in foster homes. However, pets that are awaiting medical recovery or have special needs are housed at a small shelter in Oceanside. All pets in the care of Last Chance at Life get the best medical care possible from the doctors at Mission Animal and Bird Hospital!

If you're in a city that's actually named Oceanside, chances are, you're going to want to hang out by the ocean. Knowing you, you won't want to do that without your pup, either. Luckily, there's a special spot for you and your pooch to enjoy the salty air and beach-side atmosphere. The Strand, as the locals call it, is a boardwalk path that runs a mile parallel to the ocean where you and your (leashed) pup can leisurely walk and bond. While there aren't any beaches directly in Oceanside that allow your pup to roam freely, you and your doggo can visit neighboring beaches like Ocean Beach, Cardiff State Beach, and Del Mar's Dog Beach if Fido needs to put his paws in the sand.

Then, take a leisurely stroll around the village, munch on complimentary human cookies and of course, doggo treats, and even purchase a few tickets for prize drawings.

If you're into having fun while giving back, then you'll love the annual Walk for the Animals! Both you and your canine companion are invited to participate in this event. Just up the road from Oceanside, you can join the San Diego Humane Society for their annual Walk for the Animals. This 2-mile walk (with your pooch in tow, of course) will feature fundraising opportunities for the shelter, but also will include fun activities like a pancake breakfast (your dogs will thank you), doggie-specific events, a vendor village, and a meet-n-greet warm-up hour. Make sure you keep your pups leashed at all times, and get ready to enjoy a philanthropic-fun walk with your four-legged buddy.

The Oceanside Dog Park is one of the hottest spots in town for pooches and their pawrents. With wrap-around fences and an off-leash policy, you and your pup can glide across the AstroTurf together and enjoy a mutual frolic. This park is maintained by the North County Humane Society, so they're sticklers about keeping it clean. Also, only pooches with vaccinations, who have been spayed or neutered, and are licescened are allowed to use this free park. With tons of space, plenty of goodnatured neighbors, shade, grass, and water, this park is the perfect place for you and your best friend to spend some time together.
