Dogs get water at Carmel Valley park

Water has finally arrived for the parched pups at the Torrey Hills Dog Park. Solomon and Regina Btesh, owners of Dirty Dogs pet grooming service, have been working for a year with the city to bring water to a park that needed to keep playful dogs well hydrated.

“It’s just been a big push to do it,” Regina Btesh said. “It’s something we wanted to take care of for the community.”

The dog park, located behind the Torrey Hills Shopping Center on Carmel Mountain Road, is a popular spot for people to bring their dogs but it just wasn’t very convenient when dogs got thirsty and needed refreshment.

“It was a big complaint,” Btesh said, noting people would have to bring in their own or water or go to the nearby Starbucks.

Now the water will be located right at the bottom of the ramp up to the park, near a bench. Owners can fill up their own dishes or just let their dog drink straight from the fountain.

The water source will be celebrated with a new sign that reads: “Drinks on Dirty Dogs for those with paws,” at Saturday, Sept. 12, at 4:30 p.m. People are also welcome to stay and enjoy Dirty Dogs’ appetizers and wine event, 5 to 8 p.m. There will be treats for people and dogs as well as pet vendors.

“The next things we need are some benches and umbrellas,” Btesh said. “We’ll keep working on creating a big, friendly park.”
