Well, there is nothing I like better than providing exercise, sniffing opportunities, companionship and fun for your pup.

Dog Walking in Valley Center

Valley Center is a community in the northern part of San Diego County. Although small in size, this rural town has no shortage of character. The majority of the community is farming and agricultural land with crops like oranges, lemons, avocados, and lavender. Local “Mom and Pop” shops keep the residents stocked with everyday necessities. Fur-tunately, there are three veterinary clinics in town, so pups don’t have to travel far if they are feeling under the weather.

If Valley Center is just a stop on your itinerary, make a reservation at the Woods Valley Kampground and RV Park. Whether you are traveling in an RV or camping in a tent, you’ll find a pawsome spot at this pet friendly campground. The sites are surrounded by Cottonwood, Oak, and Sycamore trees, so you’ll have plenty of shade during the day. Just keep in mind, your pooch must be leashed when outside of your tent or vehicle.

Robert Adams Community Park is a furrific place to take your four legged friend. With features like a horseshoe pit, sport courts, and picnic facilities, it’s easy to see why this is a local hub. Your pup will love soaking in the California sunshine as he wanders through the grassy area and checks out the trees. No bones about it, your dog will love Valley Center!

The Hollandia Park Dog Park is where the cool canines hang out. Located inside Hollandia Park in San Marcos, this off leash dog area is about 30 minutes outside of Valley Center. With plenty of room for darting and dashing around, this park will keep your pup busy. Bring a ball for a game of fetch, or just let her sniff around on her own. A separate section for little pups is available, as are water spigots and clean up bags. Since the ground is all dirt, your pup may be a little on the dusty side when she’s finished playing. But at least she will be happy and all worn out!
