Dog fountains in pet friendly Carmel-by-the-Sea

Real Estate Broker/Owner CA#01772851 HI#RB21268

This week is an unusually warm time here in Carmel-by-the-Sea. It's already in the mid-70s and people are walking around in shorts and other summer clothes. It will be a great day to sit or have lunch outside in the beautiful courtyards we are known for.

Not forgotten are the dogs in this pet friendly little town at beautiful Carmel Beach. Merchants at any time of the year put out dog dishes and offer treats to visiting canines.

Some retail stores go all out to make these containers special. This morning on my way to the post office, I found this special one right next to an inviting bench.

The most famous one is the "Fountain of Woof" at the Carmel Shopping Plaza across from Devendorf Park. Although early, the first patrons were already sitting outside the coffee shop on the lower level.

My dogs would appreciate some of those in the Dallas/Frisco area. While we have great dog parks, pet friendly fountains sound very cool.

Hella, The Fountain of Woof is cute and undoubtedly  a big attraction in the heat you're seeing.

I thought dogs pretty much run the town there. I saw them everywhere, including running a muck on the beach -- you live in a super friendly doggie love town; it's so cool!!

Jeff: From a marketing standpoint, it's smart because dog owners will stop in front of your door and maybe walk in--with the dog, of course.

Rebecca: It certainly is a big attraction especially on a hot day. Yesterday it went up into the low 80s. Very unusual.

Elizabeth: Dogs have a great time meeting each other on the beach--off leash. We seldom have problems between dogs. And the City provides FREE MuTT MItts for owners to pick up after Fido.

Gene: That's how the merchants feel here in town. Being "pet friendly" helps their business besides being the thing to do for our canine friends.
