Hi, my name is Stas. I love dogs so much. In my family there were always dogs with whom I spent a lot of time.

Dog Walking in Rancho Santa Fe

Rancho Santa Fe is a town that’s geared towards building a great community. The area is well served by the surrounding communities, including San Diego. Though there’s only one animal hospital inside Rancho Santa Fe’s boundaries, there are half a dozen more within a twenty minute drive. Keeping dogs happy and healthy allows them to enjoy all the wonderful things that Rancho Santa Fe has to offer. 

The Del Dios Gorge Trail via Bing Crosby is an amazing out and back trail in Rancho Santa Fe. The trail is 4.9 miles long and suitable for all skill levels, and leashed dogs are welcome to join in the adventure. If your dog needs a lot of miles to get tired out, the Lusardi Creek Loop Trail is a 9.5 moderate path that will work up a sweat.

Go for some dinner out at Rancho Santa Fe’s popular doggy dining destination, O67 Bistro, where you can get breakfast items and a variety of high quality plates at outdoor tables.


Curl up for the night at Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa, where small dogs are allowed to join you in blissful comfort for a fee. Wherever you bed down, get a good night’s sleep, because tomorrow is always another beautiful day in Rancho Santa Fe.

West Rancho Santa Fe

West Rancho Santa Fe is home to the Rancho Santa Fe Field. This simple park is a great place to walk your dog. It’s a large, open grassy area with small amenities like a public restroom. It’s used by many sports leagues to host games, but any time the fields aren’t in use, your dog can romp on leash to his heart’s content. It’s a nice alternative to walking your dog down city streets, and the views from the field are great, especially towards sunset. There are drinking fountains, but you’re going to have to bring a bowl for your pup.

At the very edge of the Southwest Rancho Santa Fe neighborhood, lies the trailhead to La Orilla Trail. This trail snakes west, crossing out of Rancho Santa Fe after a mile or so. The hike is rated as easy, and is popular with joggers, walkers, and bird watchers. It winds through beautiful expanses near San Elijo Lagoon. Hikers can choose to keep exploring, or come back out the way they came after a mile and a half. Leashed dogs will love the natural aspect of the trail. Bring your own water and a bowl, as it’s far from fountains out there.

San Dieguito County Park in this neighborhood rides the border between Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, and Solana Beach. The address is technically given to Del Mar, despite the surrounding Solana Beach neighborhood, putting this amazing park outside of Rancho Santa Fe by one minute by car. This county park is a great place to bring a high energy dog for the walk of his life. The park is 125-acres with a variety of terrain. While some areas are set aside for playgrounds and picnics, most of the space is open. Dogs will love following the hiking trails to get around this large park. There are also meadows and fields to explore.

Sensible Cardiff in the nearby town of Cardiff is only a ten minute drive from Rancho Santa Fe. San Elijo Lagoon is an amazing wildlife area and place to take your dog. It’s one of the last, and the largest, remaining coastal wetland in the San Diego area. As tempting as it could be to let your dog explore, the area is a preserve for plants and animal species, so all dogs must remain on leash in the park. Your dog will have so much to do that she won’t even mind! There are seven miles of walking paths through the park, and many different areas to see and smell!
