Summer Guide: For Pets

Four-legged fun


Doggie Street Festival

Southern California’s largest pet adoption-focused festival hits Liberty Station’s NTC Park with products, music, food, vet tips, and plenty of pooches to take home. And say hi to Louie, the famous (in some circles) seven-year-old surfing English bulldog, who’ll be handing out paw prints from noon to 1 p.m.
July 12, free, doggiestreetfestival.org

Dog Days of Summer at Petco

Before watching the Padres play the Cardinals with your pup, walk the parade with your costumed dog and enjoy the “tail”gate party. Apply in advance at your local Petco store or online.
July 29, free, petco.com/petcopark


Dog Days of Summer

Celebrate Fido at this annual Cardiff fest, which brings together more than 200 vendors, food, a cool zone, and even a Blessing of the Dogs with the Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Center.
August 9, free, cardiffdogdaysofsummer.com

Yappy Hour

The pet-friendly Hotel Indigo opens its rooftop to off-leash play during its monthly “yappy hour” event, which includes drink specials, raffles, and giveaways. Each month highlights
a different theme, and you know what that means—pet costumes!
Dates TBD, free, hotelinsd.com


Zoom Room

When the temperatures climb, your furry friends can still get their exercise at this Encinitas indoor agility facility, which has enough tunnels, A-frames, and jumps to keep that tail wagging all the way home. Sessions are private; book in advance.
$20/hour, each extra dog $5, zoomroomonline.com
