“Dog hair don’t care!”

Hi! My name is Jennifer. I grew up with dogs mostly smaller dogs like Poodles and Shih Tzu’s. As an adult I’ve owned 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks who both lived to be 12 1/2 years old. My current dog is a mixed breed dog who I rescued 3 years ago. Walking, exercising, and socializing my pets has always been a huge priority for me. I look forward to taking your dog out so he or she can get the proper exercise they need.

Dog Walking in San Juan Capistrano

San Juan Capistrano was created around the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano which helped give the town the aesthetic that it has today. While San Juan Capistrano is known for having the most variety of homes in Orange County, including homes built before the 1900s and some adobes from the 18th century, the town's real claim to fame is the annual migration of the swallows, which have been swarming the mission and town for centuries. With a plethora of dog friendly restaurants and parks, it is no wonder you and Fido want to visit this cute historical town. Home to twelve veterinarians, San Juan Capistrano will be the perfect place for you and your furry pal.

Grab Fido and head out to Reata Park for a fun day out that will also help your furry friend get some exercise in. Reata Park features a native garden and an arboretum with oak and sycamore trees. The park has a beautiful paved walking trail around it, and also offers bathrooms and a picnic area.

If Fido is more in the mood of relaxing and enjoying a nice meal with you, then check out the numerous different dog friendly restaurants that San Juan Capistrano has to offer. Cafe Mozart dishes out some tasty European inspired food, and even offers a variety of German and Austrian beer. They have a beautiful courtyard that welcomes Fido to join you for a meal.

Hiking is a great way for you and Fido to stay in shape and spend some time bonding. Three miles out of San Juan Capistrano is the San Juan Creek Trail in Dana Point. This dogtastic trail is six miles long with an asphalt and concrete trail surface. The trail runs along a levee and the Western bank of the San Juan Creek. Eventually, the trail meets the Robert McCollum Memorial Bicycle Trail, so it may be a bit busier. The trail will also pass a lot of horse stables and a path for equestrian users, so if Fido isn't a fan of horses, then you may want to avoid this trail. Don't forget your water while hiking.
