Dog-friendly Southern California

Southern California

Dog-friendly Southern California is known world-wide for its warm, welcoming hospitality, near perfect weather, breathtaking beauty and fun-filled recreation for you and your best dog buddy. Be sure to visit dog-friendly Huntington Beach and its famous Dog Beach and the Greater Palm Springs Region, one of the most dog-friendly destinations on the planet.
We’ve DogTrekk’d through the rugged beauty of the Desert Region, where cool tile floors invite afternoon snoozes; basked in the glitz and glam of Los Angeles County, and chilled out in the laid-back lifestyle of Orange County’s dog-loving beach communities. We’ve also ventured into ever dog-friendly, ever sunny San Diego to bring you the best of SoCal dog travel. You and your pooch can rest assured that in Southern California, almost every day is a dog day of summer.
