There are so many fun things to do in San Diego in the summer, but sometimes it can be hard to find activities you can share with your pets. Here are just a few of the many places that let you participate in classic San Diego summer activities with your pet.

Enjoy a day in the park: walking dog at dog park

There are several dog parks in San Diego. The city of San Diego has even curated a list so you can find the closest, or best park suited for you and your dog. Even if it is just taking a stroll or playing with your dog, nothing beats a sunny relaxing day in the park. 

Bask in the sun at the beach: 

Beaches are a classic San Diego summer activity, why wouldn’t you want to share that with your pet. Dog Beach and Fiesta Island are two of the most popular off-leash dog beaches in San Diego. However, there are several more including Coronado Dog Run Beach and some Del Mar beaches.

Afternoon Wine Tasting: 

Many restaurants and wineries allow dogs outside when on the patio, but a couple of them even let you take your dog inside. Be sure to do your research before you go, but here are a couple of our favorite dog friendly wineries. The San Pasqual winery in Seaport village, the Eagles Nest winery in San Diego County, and Negociant winery in North Park.

Well Deserved Shopping: 

We all know shopping for your pet is more fun than shopping for ourselves. Muttropolis in La Jolla or Solana Beach sells anything from walk to wear to travel. You can also treat your pet to a spa day at Howlistic while you shop for their amenities. Even though shopping for your pet can be fun, sometimes it’s fun shopping for yourself. The Westfield at UTC and most Seaport Village stores are pet friendly, so you can get that much deserved new summer outfit.

Go to a Padres Game: 

One of America’s favorite pastimes can be enjoyed with your pet at our own Petco park. That’s right, the Padres stadium has semi-private, dog-friendly viewing areas. The Barkyard can accommodate up to four people and two dogs.

A Day of Watersports: dog surfing in san diego

San Diego offers many places where you can rent paddle boards, boats, and surfboards that can accommodate you and your pet. Aqua Adventures, the Sup Connection, and Seaforth Boat Rentals are very pet-friendly, some of them even offer lessons so you and your pet can be seafaring in no time. There are also water events that take place, including, the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, which offers a few lessons leading up to the event.

With so many fun things to do with your pet, there should be no reason you both can’t enjoy yourselves while spending time together. Bring Fido is a great resource to find events, restaurants, and activities for you and your pet.
