(KGTV) — In San Diego, dog owners will be hard-pressed to find a spot that isn't dog-friendly.

It's no wonder why San Diego was recently ranked one of the most pet-friendly cities in the country, with one of the most pet-friendly restaurants per capita, according to the study.

While many allow dogs on patios or even inside, some places go above with their own menu for dogs and water bowl aplenty.
