SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — There's a reason dog-lovers thrive in San Diego.

Beaches, dog-friendly restaurants and bars, animal care services. There's plenty to love in SD. And according to a new ranking, others feel the same — at least on a purely analytical basis.

Technobark recently ranked San Diego as the seventh best U.S. city for dog owners. Thanks to an abundance of dog parks, dog beaches, and health services, San Diego was hailed as one of the best cities to own a dog.

Surprised? You shouldn't be. San Diego ranked as one of the best cities for all pet owners last year, thanks to its abundance of pet businesses, dog-friendly restaurants, and animal shelters, according to WalletHub.

The city took a hit in walkability and veterinary costs on that ranking, but made up for it with number of dog parks and pet caretakers.

Of course, if you can't find somewhere to walk, you can also take some time to hang out with your dog at a bar or restaurant. Check out some great spots to take your pooch out.
