San Diego Makes Top Ten on Dog-Friendliest Cities

San Diego was recently named the 4th dog-friendliest city in America according to the Huffington Post. Most people wouldn’t think of downtown when they are considering where to move when owning a dog but they are wrong! Downtown San Diego is filled with so many great activities that you can enjoy with your pet. Did you know that most restaurants downtown welcome dogs with open arms and even offer fresh water bowls brought to your table?
