San Diego's awesome weather and extensive beaches make it perfect for enjoying a day with your furry friend. One of the best-rated dog parks is the Grape Street Dog Park in Golden Hill. Featuring a ridiculously large off-leash area, somewhat grassy area with patches of dirt, and two easy to access water fountains, Grape Street Dog Park is a local favorite. Keep in mind, the park is not fully fenced off from the street, there is a low fence that many full-size dogs could easily breach.

If your dog isn't scared of wildlife such as snakes and owls, check out Mission Trails Regional Park. Mission Trails hosts jogging, riding, hiking, mountain biking, and with any park, general walking, which means there is something for everyone. If it happens to be your first time at the park be sure to meet with the team at the visitor center for best advice on directions and best routes for you and your pup.

A trip to San Diego simply would not be complete without a visit to Balboa Park. This absolutely stunning park is scenic with anything and everything from street performers, museums, and a Japanese Friendship Garden. Balboa Park hosts it's own attached dog park, which means you can enjoy the festivals, music performances, and other events while your dog looks forward to visiting the park.

"Kameron showed up and checked in right on time with her eta. She reported no problems with my young, wild chihuahua boys. She walked them a nice long distance during their time so I'm happy knowing they will be taking a nice nap in their kennel. She also let me know that she changed out their kennel potty pad which I hugely appreciate! The boys and I thank you Kameron!"
