Top Spots for Dogs in La Jolla
Been to the same Southern California dog park many times and want to go somewhere new? There are many great places for La Jolla dog owners. From dog-friendly hikes to dog-friendly La Jolla restaurants, we want to share the top spots to go with pet dogs in La Jolla.
Torrey Pines State Reserve
La Jolla’s Torrey Pines State Reserve has great hiking trails for dogs and humans alike! There are 6 different trails dogs love, so you can choose from a variety of hikes. To learn more about Torrey Pines, check out our in-depth La Jolla Torrey Pines State Reserve Page.
After an afternoon of hiking or just day-to-day life, do you find your pup dirty and in need of dog grooming? Take your dog to be cleaned at one of La Jolla’s dog grooming salons.
With a 5 star review on Yelp, we recommend La Jolla’s Uptown Woofs. Why? It has a great reputation for good reason. From doggie baths and haircuts to dog nail grinding and trimming, Uptown Woofs is family-owned business that puts true thought and care into every dog that comes in. (They’re even known to cut trickier Labradoodle coats to perfection!)
To make newcomers feel extra welcoming, the Uptown Woofs staff often provides a welcome present of a toy and dog treats. Now that’s service!
La Jolla Shores Beach
After 6 pm year-round and after 4 pm in winter, La Jolla Shores Beach is dog-friendly. At these times, take your pup for bonding and play time! If he or she likes to play fetch, feel free to bring a frisbee or ball toy.
