Dog Walking in Dana Point

Dana Point is a modest-sized city found in Orange County, California. While it is well-known for its beautiful harbor, there are also lots of dog friendly restaurants and cafes in the area, as well as pup-tastic parks to explore. 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!

There are also places you can stay for the night in Dana Point that welcome dogs. This includes Dana Point Harbor Inn where you can bring two dogs that weigh up to 20Ibs, as well as at Doheny State Beach Campground.
