UDF goes on-air: U-T San Diego Video about Dog Obesity

Last month, Unleashed Dog Fitness received a call from Raquel Martin with U-T San Diego. Martin inquired about the obesity trend for dogs in the US, what dog-owners can do about it, and also wanted to know if UDF would be interested in doing a short video segment about it

Of course we did! It is in our interest do raise as much awareness as possible about this current issue which more and more dog owner face.

It’s a Dog’s World: San Diego’s Little Italy

San Diego Happy Dogs is exploring San Diego and its many dog-friendly places. In this edition, they checked out our lovely neighborhood in Little Italy!

If you’re like me and prefer to take your best furry friend with you wherever you go, follow along as my dog Astra and I explore San Diego’s neighborhoods.

On a recent Saturday, we set out for Little Italy, near Downtown and not far from the airport. A blend of residential and commercial, Little Italy is best known for its many restaurants and shops. Strolling the neighborhood is a wonderful way to spend a day, with great food, shopping, dog-friendly parks, and a view of the waterfront. It’s a bit hilly, so you get a work out, too!

We began our tour at Tazza D’Oro on India Street. I grabbed a cup of coffee for me and a free dog treat for Astra. We sat outside where many dog lovers, with and without dogs, stopped and chatted with us. Other dogs socialized at Sogno DeVino next door.
