Dog-friendly beaches include La Jolla Shores between 6pm and 9am, and Fido can socialize 24 hours a day off-leash at Capehart Dog Park on the corner of Soledad Mountain Road and Felspar Street (just north of Garnet in Pacific Beach).
Kate Sessions Park, where leashed dogs are welcome, is a beautiful green oasis on Soledad Road with a south facing view of downtown and Mission Bay.
San Diego’s best known Dog Beach is in Ocean Beach. Here, dogs of all sizes are free to race up and down the sand and play in the water 24/7. If you go to OB, you might also want to stop in at the Dog Beach Dog Wash and give man’s best friend a shampoo. Ocean Beach is 20 about minutes from La Jolla.
And whatever you do, don’t miss Muttropolis “a Utopia for pets and their parents,” at 7755 Girard Avenue in La Jolla (858-459-9663). This cute store sells all kinds of practical supplies for our four-legged friends – including bowls, collars, beds, food, and leashes. They also carry a somewhat eccentric line of dog jewelry and clothing – the watermelon sorbet pink dog dress being one example.
If Pooch isn’t a good swimmer, buy a doggie life jacket at Muttropolis, and if he doesn’t like to walk, they offer several models of dog strollers.
Hey. It’s La Jolla. What can I say?
