My name is Paul McKenna, I'm a retired aerospace worker and have owned dogs throughout my lifetime. I've owned breeds as small as Chihuahua and as large as Rottweiler and have loved interacting with all of them. I love walking with dogs because it allows me to clear my mind of the complexities of life and enjoy a simple, living pleasure. Walking is also an excellent form of exercise for both the dog and myself.

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 Lakeside

There’s a lot to like about Lakeside, CA. Clustered around the lovely Lindo Lake, the perfectly located city combines a small town feel with easy access to big city amenities. The scenery is beautiful -- there are many easily walkable trails in the area, and three local reservoirs for fishing, hiking and boating. You and your furry friend can take a walk around the fabulous Lindo Lake Park, a small but beautiful green space that welcomes dogs on leash. Or, stop in at Mila’s Lakeside Cafe, a furrific local spot that caters to canine companions at its outdoor tables. There are two veterinary clinics in town to take care of your buddy, with 24-hour care available just a short drive away in El Cajon.

There are no designated dog parks in town, but don’t fret -- while you may need to take a little drive to get the best exercise and entertainment options for your pup, the town is well served by roads and highways. Lakeside is only twenty minutes from San Diego, and thirty minutes from the beach. With a long enough leash, Lakeside can be a great base for you and your pooch to explore a little fur-ther afield!

Grossmont in El Cajon is just an eleven-minute drive from Lakeside, and a real mutts-visit for dog owners. It’s home to the Canine Corners Dog Park, a pawesome dog run located just off Milden Street. The park is well-shaded by several large, mature trees, so your pup get a good workout without you worrying about them overheating in the California sun! There are two large, separate areas for large and small dogs, and water and bags are provided. While you’re in the area, why not pop in to Howlistic on Severin Drive? Technically located in nearby La Mesa, this San Diego area staple provides delicious, all natural treats sure to keep your pup bright eyed and bushy tailed!

Only five miles from Lakeside, Woodglen Vista is home to the Woodglen Vista Dog Park. Make no bones about it -- your pup will love a game of catch in this huge, green field! Doggy-doo bags and water are available onsite, but there’s no separate area for small dogs, so be mindful of your pup’s temperament. There are also restrooms and plenty of seats available for humans. The Santee Lakes Park on Santee Lakes Boulevard is a mutts-visit for dog owners! This scenic spot allows dogs on leash in designated areas, and even has a specially designed Pet Walk trail for you and your buddy to wander!

Mast Park in Mission View, Santee is well worth the the eleven-minute drive for the size of its dog park alone. The off-leash area is huge, so there’s plenty of space for your pup to play and socialize! The park has its drawbacks, however; water is available at the park entrance only, and there’s no separate run for small dogs. The gem of Mission View is the Walker Preserve, a beautiful state park with a furrific 1.5-mile dog-friendly trail running right through it! (Your pup needs to stay on-leash on the trail, though.) The trail is suitable for all fitness levels, and water and doggy-doo bags are provided.

Cowles Mountain Trail in East San Carlos, San Diego is very popular with dogs and owners looking for a more intense hike. The sharp incline is well worth it for the beautiful views at the top, and the bottom portion of the three-mile trail is suitable for all fitness levels. Your pooch is welcome to walk as long as they stay on leash. Just bring your own waste bags and water! Be careful, though -- the trail doesn’t get a lot of shade in the afternoon, so it’s best to visit in the morning or early evening to avoid the heat.

The neighborhood of Hillsdale in El Cajon is a haven for pet owners. The Wells Park Dog Run on East Madison Avenue is a pup’s paradise, featuring a whopping 1.4 acres of off-leash open space. The park provides everything you and your dog could ask for: bags, water and separate areas for big and small dogs. Once you and your furry friend have worked up an appetite, consider stopping in to Epic Wings and Things. This local favorite serves succulent chicken smothered in the sauce of your choice, and canine companions are welcome to chow down at several pet-friendly, outdoor tables.
