Last year’s Dog-friendly Surf City USA issue covered a lot of ground and sand in the story Every Walk in Surf City is Special, highlighting famous Huntington Dog Beach, Central Park and the Brightwater Trail that offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. Chow for Your Chow provides an insider's look at dining options your pup will savor in the city and Pawesome Places to Spoil Your Pup includes a list of the best places to well, spoil your pup.
And don’t forget: At the end of the day, DogTrekkers can choose from four premier oceanfront resorts that are part of the HB Collection. All are within walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants.
The Shorebreak Hotel understands the pet-friendly concept as well as any lodging property.

They’ll help you spoil your pup with howlingly cool amenities, from front-desk treats and plush pet beds to water bowls, cleanup bags and even a dog-friendly restaurant and menu. And get this: there’s a complimentary nightly wine reception from 5-6 p.m. for guests and their pets. They even keep “Directors of Pet Relations” on staff!
