The Barkyard is an interactive dog community for Southern California. I want to encourage and help you, and your dogs, get outdoors to enjoy all of the great activities Southern California has to offer. I started this page to help spread information about local dog activities, camping destinations, hikes, and other events throughout, and occasionally beyond, Southern California. I’m a firm believer that all adventures are better when accompanied by a dog, and I know there are many others out there that feel the same way! I hope this site can provide you with some great information, and insight, to help you plan your next outing with your furry friend. Enjoy!
