“DOGS ARE THE BEST PEOPLE”

Hello, my name is Nancy and I am happily married with a family of 3 fur babies, 2 fish, 1 cockatiel, and 1 bearded dragon. Daily I wake up to happy tails wagging, ready and eager to go on long walks, to the dog parks, hiking, the beach, or to puppy play dates. I will be studying to become a veterinary technician. Growing up I have always been surrounded by animals; from family pets to those I have rescued and nurtured back to health until I found them a loving new home. Fun for me is learning through new experiences from outdoor activities, drawing, driving vehicles, riding bikes, working out, healthy recipes, and enjoying it alongside loving family and pets. My dream is to help as many animals in the world as I can and ensure they have amazing, long, happy lives. Always with a smile, I am ecstatic to meet your fur baby.

There are nine veterinary clinics and animal hospitals in Dana Point, in case of emergency.

Bring your pup to Doheny State Beach for an adventure. While dogs are not allowed on the beach itself, there is a five acre sniff-tastic lawn that they will love. From here, you can enjoy beautiful views of the golden sand and beautiful coastline, as well as watch surfers and other water activities. All pups can be top dog here, as long as they remain on leash. 

When you get hungry, you can take your pick from a bunch of dog friendly eateries. If you love seafood, be sure not to miss Wind and Sea. It also has an outside patio where you can bring your pup and sit around the fire pit. For some good American barbecue food, head to the Rib Joint Roadhouse. This place is relaxed and welcomes dog on the large outdoor patio. For tasty Thai food, you can try Thai Dara. There are three outdoor tables where you can sit and eat with your pup – bone-a-petit!
