BEST DAY EVER
The Joyful Pooch is a San Diego-based company whose mission is to bring more joy into the lives of dogs and the people who love them.
We do this by giving dogs the time of their lives during dog walks and dog park outings, unique dog adventures and events, and for their owners (and dog lovers around the country) we have adorable and comfy t-shirts, sweatshirts and other apparel with designs that are exclusive to The Joyful Pooch.
You love your dogs as if they were your children, and we do too.
We are happy you are here. WELCOME.

Along with the fun and unique dog adventures, The Joyful Pooch provides basic dog services like dog walking, dog park outings and ‘Hangouts’.
Services are available for dog owners in the San Diego urban core neighborhoods, both during daytime hours and on evenings/nights and Saturdays at no additional charge.
We sell a variety of unique dog lover t-shirts, sweatshirts and tanks, with unique-to-us designs that you won’t find anywhere else. All products are high-quality, comfy clothing that you’ll love throwing on.
The Pure Dog Joy™ Program is our philanthropic arm, where we provide free adventures and other fun outings to dogs at San Diego area rescues, in foster homes and at shelters, who have had a difficult and/or painful past, and are in great need of some joy in their lives. Some who have never experienced joy before at all.
We apply 10% of the net sales of every product sold through our shop to our program, to cover the hard costs of donating adventures and other excursions to shelter and rescue dogs. We call this The Pure Dog Joy™ fund. The fund covers things like gas, treats, toys, collars and accessories, shopping trips, and more.
So every time you buy a t-shirt or other product, you are helping a joy-starved dog go on a super fun adventure. Doesn’t that feel awesome?
