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!


  1. What a great theme for your blog. My husband and I were working for a week in Tehachapi earlier this year and wanted to do some sightseeing down south. We ruled out Joshua Tree–it wasn’t worth the distance if we couldn’t let the dogs have a romp when we arrived. We did end up driving to Red Rock but had to keep the dogs confined there too. We were happy to return to BLM land,and canine liberation. :)…
