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 La Jolla

La Jolla is a gorgeous area between the Pacific Ocean and San Diego. If you’re looking for a high quality vacation, or a lifestyle that revolves around the finer things in life, La Jolla is the place to be. That’s incredibly clear when it comes to vet care in the area. There are eight veterinarians and animal hospitals just within La Jolla’s limits. Residents want what’s best for their four-legged friends, and the city reflects that. Start your day with a trip to Richard Walker’s Pancake House, where breakfast treats are served on a heated patio perfect for dogs!

After breakfast, head out to Torrey Pines State Reserve for hiking opportunities that can last a day or an hour. There are six trails of varying lengths and difficulties, so you can find what’s right for you.

When you’re ready to rest up for another day, La Jolla has a variety of pet-friendly hotels to choose from. You can choose from chains like Holiday Inn Express and Residence Inn by Mariot, or smaller, more unique hotel experiences like Lodge at Torrey Pines and Estancia La Jolla. No matter what’s right for you, you’ll find it for you and your pup in La Jolla.
