Carlsbad, California, is truly a sight to behold. This large ocean side resort has a population of over an 110,000 - not including the tourists - and is located at the Pacific shoreline. Carlsbad is an animal loving community with special rules to preserve the local wildlife and several amenities and attractions for pet owners.

Dog lovers are in for a "treat" (see what we did there with the play on words?) in Carlsbad, California, as there are not one but two off-leash dog parks in town. The off-leash dog park in the Alga Norte Community Park is the largest park of the two and not only offers an enclosed environment for dogs to play in but also has an obstacle course which is a great way for dogs to get rid of any leftover energy. Instead of grass, the dog park has surfaces made of turf and decomposed granite.

The other dog park in town is the Ann D. L'Heureux Memorial Dog Park, which was the first off-leash dog park in Carlsbad. This smaller park offers water fountains and benches to sit on but is smaller than the other park. Unfortunately for some dog lovers, there is no designated separate area for small dogs.

There is a large amount of hotels in the city as Carlsbad is a favorite destination among tourists. A good number of these resorts and motels are pet-friendly as well. There are the more luxurious options such as the Sheraton resort as well as more budget-friendly choices such as the La Quinta Inn.

And if you missed something on your shopping list, you can go pick it up together with Fido at the Carlsbad Premium Outlets. Dogs can join shoppers here as long as they are on a leash.

    Although this is a ten-mile drive from Carlsbad, it is well worth it! Encinitas is not only home to delicious food and culture but it also has one of the best dog parks in the area, the Hawk View Park. This park has plenty of playgrounds and open spaces for children and dogs. Because the land is a little sloped, it is a great place to get some exercise in! Many dog owners tend to go to the park with friends to BBQ and relax while their dogs socialize and play with each other. You will not regret your decision to visit Hawk View Park!
