California is calling and you answered! You are packing up and making the move to a brand new home with Fido by your side, but how can you make sure your furry companion stays happy and stress-free with all these changes happening? This infographic will provide helpful tips for making the move with your pooch, getting you one step closer to dog-friendly fun in California. Once you settle in, kick things off with a bang by rewarding your dog with a tasty treat from Muttropolis and a romp on the Rose Canyon Bicycle Path. If your pooch happens to be a young pup, small, or timid, the separated areas at Capehart Dog Park in San Diego will surely meet his needs. After all that outdoor fun, take a breather and enjoy some good food at Mendocino Farms (they are known for bringing out water for furry visitors). Or, enjoy the best unique aspect the California coast offers for dogs and their owners – dog beaches!
