Dog Walking in Oceanside

Oceanside is a beautiful city along the coast of southwestern California. It is the third-biggest city in the county of San Diego. The town was incorporated in 1888 and is known for its amazing climate of 60 to 70-degree weather year-round. In fact, the average high is 67.91˚, and the average low is 53.73˚ so you will not need a coat. Dog lovers love Oceanside too, and there are over 39,000 dogs in town. So bring Fido when you come to Oceanside. There are tons of great dog-friendly places to go.

The Oceanside Dog Park on San Luis Rey Road is a great fenced-in place for furbabies to play. There are two sections; one for active and one for less active dogs. There are doggy water fountains, poop bags, chairs for the humans, and artificial turf instead of grass, so there is no dirt and mud. The people and the pooches are friendly and fun.

A dog park within a park is such a great idea! South Buena Vista Park on Mountain Pass is amazing! You can take your kids to play on the playground or walk the trails with Fido on a leash and then at certain times (7-10 AM and 4 PM-Dusk) you can let Fido off the chain and let him run! There is even a pond where Fido can chase the ducks!
