Summer is almost over! We hope that all of our furry patients and their humans got the chance to enjoy the beautiful summer we’ve had here in Anaheim and the whole Orange County. We know that as pet owners, it can sometimes be challenging to balance all of the tempting summer fun with caring for your pet. For example, many pet owners have to stay home on the 4th of July to take care of their pets and help comfort them through the anxiety that fireworks and other holiday sounds may cause.
While sacrifices have to be made sometimes, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the world around you with your dog! Anaheim and Orange County are filled with lots of pet-friendly events and activities! Of course, you can always take your dog to the nearest dog park or dog-friendly beach, or even take them on one of the amazing local hiking trails, but there are some extra special events coming up to help you end your summer on a high note! If you live in or near Anaheim, check out these amazing opportunities to take your dog out in the OC!
Did you know that most of the concerts in the park series in Orange County are dog friendly? You can bring your whole family, including your pup, to your local concert in the park to enjoy a leisurely evening of live music and picnic style lounging! There are still a few concerts left before the summer comes to a close. To check and see if your local concert in the park is dog-friendly or to check the lineup schedule, check out your city’s website!
Have you ever seen a dog surf? Well, here’s your chance! This year, there are two local opportunities to see some surfing dogs! You can head to Imperial Beach on August 10th or to Huntington Beach on September 28th for a Surf Dog event. Pet owners who have trained their dogs to surf on doggy surfboards will be performing alongside them. If you’re interested in entering your pup in the event, check out their website for more information!
If you’re looking to treat yourself and your dog to a fancy outing, check out Yappy Hour at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna! Your dog can enjoy some delicious water with flavors like bacon, chicken, beef or vegan, while you enjoy a glass of Mutt Lynch Unleashed Chardonnay, Merlot Over and Play Dead, Chateau d’Og Cabernet Sauvignon or a cocktail! Proceeds support The Veterans Initiative of Canine Companions for Independence. This event occurs monthly, so check their website to find out when the next one is!
We hope that you and your family have a chance to enjoy some of these amazing summer events in Orange County, pets included! Anaheim is perfectly situated between some of the most exciting and cool dog-friendly places and events in Orange County. Enjoy!
