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 Solana Beach

Solana Beach is a moderately populated city located in San Diego County. This pawpular resort city proudly boasts that it's "Southern California's best-kept secret", and, considering the amount of dog-friendly amenities here, we're inclined to agree! You'll find three vets in town to take care of your furry friend while you're here.

Vacationing in Solana Beach with your best buddy and need a place to stay? Check out Beach Club Condominium or Blue Water Retreat, both of which are pet-friendly and ready to pamper you and your pal! Solana AirBnB rentals are another option if you're looking for something budget-friendly.

Looking for a place to lunch with your lucky hound? You'll have lots of options here! Solana Beach's dog-friendly eateries include Beach Grass Café, Claire's on Cedros, Hideaway Café, Pizza Port, Wild Note Café, Lockwood Table Café and many more.

While you’re here, you can go on a hike with your pup. The San Elijo Lagoon is around 3 miles long, and is a great place to enjoy a quick walk after chowing down with your hound. Dogs have to be on-leash on this hike. Make sure to bring water, snacks and waste bags for cleaning up.

Solana Beach is the perfect place to enjoy a classic California getaway!

While visiting Solana Beach with your pup, check out the Fiesta Island Off-Leash Dog Park. This park is located around 20 miles away from Solana Beach, and is situated in Mission Bay. Most of the island allows dogs to play and run off-leash; however, there are certain areas where a leash is a must. There is a lot of space where your pup can tire himself out and splash in the shallow beach water. This huge park is fenced in, and has more than enough room for timid or shy pups to play on their own. Don't forget to bring your own water and poop bags!

The Original Dog Beach is another place that you can take your pup to in the vicinity of Solana Beach. The beach is located in Ocean Beach, around 20 miles away from Solana Beach. The beach is one of the most pawpular in the area and it allows dogs to have fun off-leash at all times of the day! Just two blocks away from the beach is a dog wash station where you can rinse the sand and seaweed out of your pup's fur before heading home. Disposable waste bags are provided and there are plenty of trash stations, so there's no excuse for not cleaning up after your pup. Don’t forget to bring your own water!

Around 16 miles north of Solana Beach is another pawesome place to check out: Buccaneer Beach Park. This on-leash park located across from the beach can be found in Oceanside. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on the beach. Other than that, this dog-friendly community park provides waste baggies and trash cans to make cleanup more convenient. Benches are also available to rest after you tucker yourselves out with a nice walk. Dogs are not allowed on any of the beaches in Oceanside, so be aware of that before you go. Make sure you bring water with you.

Just 2 miles away from Solana Beach is a very beautiful beach that allows dogs off-leash 9 months of the year, during the off-season. The beach is very clean and provides easy access to parking. You'll need to bring your own waste baggies; cleaning up after your pooch is a must here! Bring your own water, too, since there isn’t any here. There are no bathrooms either, just some port-a-potties. The water is pretty gentle, and the beach is very clean and safe for your pup, making it the perfect place for playing some fetch in the water!

If you want to visit a park rather than a beach, one of the best ones in the vicinity is Nate's Point Off-Leash Dog Park. This park is around 22 miles away from Solana Beach, and is located in San Diego’s Balboa Park neighborhood. This off-leash park is completely fenced in and open 24/7, so you can get in your exercise anytime! The park has more than enough space to romp and play. There are some trees here that provide shade, as well as benches for the human visitors. Water and waste bags are usually provided in the park, but it's always a good idea to bring your own just in case.
