I just moved to San Diego from Connecticut, and was looking for for a good way to meet new dogs and explore the area. I’ve had 8 dogs throughout my life, from Rottweiler to Golden Retriever to Shih Tzu, and I used to volunteer at an animal shelter in Connecticut. I’ve been walking dogs for as long as I have been walking myself, and they are by far my favorite creatures!

Dog Walking in Del Mar

Del Mar is a place with European charm, miles of pristine beaches, and coastal beauty luring millions of tourists yearly to enjoy the luxury of the climate and commercial area’s generosity. Canine friends are frequent visitors in the city, so no matter what your intentions are -- whether they're to explore the sandy beaches, feast at local eateries or spend all your money in souvenir shops and stores -- Del Mar has everything you need. Your buddy is welcome to accompany you almost everywhere, and is protected by 2 veterinary hospitals in Del Mar Heights.

Beaches do not need to be advertised, but the beautiful North Dog Beach is worth mentioning only because it is open nine months of the year and offers more than two miles of soft sandy terrain for furry friends and their masters. Explore, dig, play, dig again, and nobody will stop you! The beach also provides an access point to Seagrove Park and Powerhouse Park for additional off-leash fun and excitement.

Like any tourist-friendly town, Del Mar has a wide variety of eateries featuring local, traditional and exotic cuisine stretching along the coastline and welcoming pooches in outdoor seating areas. Check out Sbicca Del Mar out, a creative bistro with a dog-friendly upper deck and super friendly staff. 

What would a resort town be without Fido-friendly lodging? Most rooms and apartments you'll find in Del Mar are pet-friendly and don't place additional restrictions on pets!

One of San Diego's biggest northern neighborhoods, Mira Mesa warmly welcomes you and your pup on your way to San Diego. Make sure to stop by Maddox Neighborhood Dog Park. The dog park is fully fenced and is a great spot to bring Fido for a short run to stretch his legs before heading into town. You can pawse at two drive-in restaurants, or in small local eateries on the central square if your bellies start growling -- but the real heaven for foodies is in the eastern part of the neighborhood, set close to busy Interstate 15 Express and San Diego Miramar College. Enjoy fries at Mimi’s Café at the outdoor tables, or a juicy burger in Island Restaurant located in the busy Mira Mesa Market Center where leashed pooches are welcome to come in!
