Fountain Valley is a commuter town in Orange County, California. The San Diego Freeway runs through its center, connecting the area to Long Beach and Newport Beach. Huntington Beach can be found just south of the neighborhood as you reach the coast while Westminster is due west and Garden Grove just northwards. Southeast of Fountain Valley is Costa Mesa. You will find the Santa Ana River flowing on its eastern border, a river which ends its journey on Huntington State Beach.
Fountain Valley is a neighborhood that is teeming with animal facilities. Kay’s Pet Grooming can be found on Slater Avenue. Its central location is ideal for reaching from anywhere within the district. The Animal Medical Center offers veterinary services from Harbor Boulevard which is perfect if your dog is feeling under the weather. Infinity Pet Products on Newhope Street is a pet store that can provide you with all the toys, food, and grooming products you’ll need.
The topography in Fountain Valley is relatively flat and dips down as you get closer to the ocean. You should have no problems with steep hills in the area and this makes it the ideal walking location for anyone, no matter what their fitness levels are. It’s also great for all types of dogs whether they have short or long legs. One thing to bear in mind, however, is that Orange County can become very hot in the summer months. If the temperature is particularly high, please keep in mind that dogs cannot sweat to cool themselves down in the same way that we do, so keep walks early in the morning or later at night to ensure your dog is not uncomfortably hot.
Fountain Valley is a pretty built-up, artificial landscape. Your best bet for finding natural terrain is to head towards Huntington Beach where you can experience wild waves and soft sand under your feet.
Why not take your pup for a walk around a pond and let them have a little swim to cool off? You’ll love the waterside views and the fresh air that comes with escaping neighborhood life. There are lots of activities for the family and locals report that it’s a great day out for everyone involved, dogs included.
