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.

Ocean Beach Dog BeachSan Diego County. Ocean Beach, in the community of the same name, is quintessential Southern California—surfers, bikinis, lifeguards and all. In the “dog-run”, four-legged visitors tear around sand and surf, adding to the carefree vibe. (Leash rules apply elsewhere on the beach, so keep an eye on the signs.) more »

Rosie’s Dog Beach, Long Beach, Los Angeles County. It’s not fenced and not a dedicated “dog beach,” but this strand of sand in the “dog zone” along Ocean Boulevard is open to off-leash dog play from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. Believe it or not, this is the only legally off-leash beach in the entire county! more »

Huntington Beach Dog Beach, Orange County. This salty-dog paradise encompasses a 1.5-mile section of a 3.5-mile-long beach that seems plucked straight out of a surfer movie (no wonder Huntington Beach is nicknamed Surf City USA). You’ll find yourself humming a Beach Boys tune as you and your pup immerse yourselves in surf culture. more »

This three story, 150-room addition to Marriott’s Autograph Collection opens in March just steps from El Paseo, the “Rodeo Drive” of the desert. It’s the first luxury hotel for the upscale shopping district and the first new hotel for the community in 30 years.
