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 El Cajon

Wells Park Dog Run is a 1.4-acre off-leash dog park that is completely fenced in. Wells Park has gravel and grass areas, as well as benches to relax on and drinking fountains to replenish at. This dog park is the perfect place to make new friends – both two-legged and four-legged.

Hillside Park is a dog park that often gets mistaken for a regular walking/leisure park, so don’t let the lack of a children’s playground steer you away as it has done to other people. Hillside Park is a fairly small park that has a few walking trails, but other than those, it’s a standard dog park that’s good for dogs and their owners looking for a change of scenery from their backyards.

Woodglen Vista Dog Park has more than just some grass and trails. Picnic areas, tennis courts, a basketball court, a baseball field, and a children’s playground surround the Woodglen Vista Dog Park, so a day at the park can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. Doggie-waste bags are provided, and the entire park is fenced in. Woodglen Vista does not have separate areas for small and large dogs, so if your small dog is afraid of large dogs, or your large dog thinks small dogs are snacks, this dog park is not for you.
