)-- Cesar Millan and his Great Dog Adventure hit San Diego this past weekend. The two-day event on June 25th and 26th featured a 50-dog pack walk in Old Town San Diego led by the Dog Whisperer himself, a picnic lunch catered by green company Eco Caters (ecocaters.com), a Cesar Millan Live benefit performance, an exotic animal presentation and opportunities to explore the San Diego Zoo, a book signing, and a giant scavenger hunt with Scooby-Doo. Event sponsors included Best Western, Scooby-Doo, and Veterinary Pet Insurance.
On Saturday, families and their dogs filled Heritage Park in Old Town for a delicious picnic lunch and family fun. Organic catering company Eco Caters provided freshly made wraps, chips and brownies for all the volunteers and event attendees. Eco Caters is a San Diego based company that uses all organic food purchased from local farmers. Eco Caters also subscribes to a “no-waste” mentality, which makes a difference at an event this size. They compost all of their food scraps and never waste any food.
The picnic was filled with dog loving people and their adorable pooches, all set on the sprawling Heritage Park lawn. Heritage Park, managed by Pacific Hospitality Group, is home to stately Victorian homes that were moved there during the '40s in order to protect them for generations to come. The area includes Senlis Cottage 1896, Sherman-Gilbert House 1887, Italiante Christian House 1889, Queen Anne McConaughy House 1887, Stick Eastlake Burton House 1887, Classic Revival Temple Beth Israel 1889, Classic revival and the oldest Jewish temple in the city.

The Best Western Hacienda Hotel – Old Town offers a charming atmosphere, convenient location and panoramic views of the ocean, bay and city lights all from its hillside retreat.
