Knowing what kind of traveling experiences and adventures that you want can help you fine tune your itinerary and get the best kind of vacation experience possible. We can help you with finding the best options to traveling with your favorite pooch while in San Diego.
Tips to Start
When visiting San Diego, there are a few tips you should keep in mind in order to get the best experience with your vacation when visiting with your dog.
- Make sure that your pooch has a collar with all of the necessary information.
- Keep vaccinations up to date prior to your visit.
- Make sure to clean up after your pet. This helps keep San Diego a welcoming place to visit for both people and furry companions!
- Keep a leash on your pet until you reach one of the many designated “leash-less” locations.
- Never leave a pet alone in a vehicle. The temperature inside a vehicle can rise very quickly and can cause harm to your pet.
