Kenya was terrific. She took great care of our dog and sent us regular pictures to let us know how he was doing. We would definitely recommend her.

The Arana Gulch has 2 main trails where you and your pup can run, which cuts through a 68-acre greenbelt. You and your furry friend will love this scenic gem!
  • Pleasure Point Beach

    Pleasure Point Beach| Pleasure Point, Opal Cliffs, CA 95062| Visit Website

There is decent parking and easy access to the beach by stairs. Once there, you are surrounded by beautiful views of the ocean, surfers and sand! Many beach goers describe this destination as tranquil and relaxing, but there is also plenty of room for adventure with you and your pup!
