Los Feliz

The Santa Monica Mountains provide a breathtaking backdrop to the bustling commercial district and elegant homes of this hillside neighborhood. If you and your hound are hungry, you'll find an array of dog-friendly restaurants along Hillhurst Avenue. No matter what you have a hankering for, whether it's Brazilian specialties or classic Italian, you'll find something to please your palate here.聽


The star attraction of Los Feliz is Griffith Park, famous for its observatory, hiking trails, and, of course, the Hollywood Sign. While you're busy snapping selfies with LA's most iconic landmark, Fido will surely be itching to let loose in the Griffith Park Dog Park! This 1.6-acre parcel is split into separate sections for large and small doggos and comes complete with doggy water fountains. It's also a "pawpular" place with professional dog walkers in Los Angeles.

Beverly Hills

You and Lassie will be in the lap of luxury in Beverly Hills! Spend some time strolling the pristine streets and admiring the sprawling celebrity estates for which Beverly Hills is famous. Hit Rodeo Drive for some retail therapy, and be sure to ask the shopkeepers if your leashed pup can join you while you browse. When you've had all the glitz and glamor you can take, make a beeline for South Santa Monica Boulevard for some gourmet doggy dining at an upscale eatery, or go for a simple slice of "pupperoni" pizza.聽

Let your pal stop and sniff the roses at Beverly Gardens Park, and don't forget to snap a photo in front of the Beverly Hills sign. Will Rogers Memorial Park, Beverly Hills Dog Park, and the dog-friendly farmers' market are other essential stops on your adventures through Beverly Hills. If you're looking to romp at Beverly Hills Dog Park, you'll need to apply for a temporary permit, which is exclusively available to hotel guests and those staying with Beverly Hills residents.

Downtown Los Angeles

Not only is Downtown Los Angeles the cultural capital of the world, but it's also pretty doggone Fido-friendly!聽Dozens of restaurants, cafes, and breweries in "DTLA" welcome leashed canine customers at the outdoor seating areas. Grab a coffee, your favorite brew, or chow down on a sit-down meal, then work off those extra calories at one of two dog parks in downtown. Grand Park Dog Park, right next to City Hall, is a "grrreat" place to meet up with fellow pet parents.聽

Art District Dog Park, complete with colorful doggy murals and a separate area for small puppers, is another funky spot to sniff out some new canine compadres.聽Looking "fur" a little luxury?聽Downtown even boasts its very own store dedicated entirely to doggy skincare.

North Hollywood

If the bright lights and big mansions are a bit too much for you and your buddy, head to NoHo, a cozy district jam-packed with pubs, vintage shops, and art galleries galore. Your first order of business in NoHo is visiting the Whitnall Off-Leash Dog Park, a 3-acre playground with a separate area for small or shy pups.聽

Drinking water is provided, but it's on you to supply the waste baggies! Then, leash up and follow your nose to the neighborhood's gastropubs to grab a burger or a hot dog.聽If you want to explore the galleries and theaters of NoHo's Arts District, you'll need to leave Fido at home. Why not book a dog sitter in Los Angeles so you can experience all the big-ticket attractions of North Hollywood?

West Hollywood

Boasting the most exotic nightlife in LA and a handful of celebrity-owned restaurants, WeHo is the hottest spot in the City of Angels. That goes for both people and pups! Your first stop with Sparky should be Runyon Canyon Park, home to a 90-acre tract of hiking trails and open space that permits leash-free pups. For a classic dog park, mosey on over to William S. Hart Park. This small park is stocked with drinking water and waste baggies.聽

After all that romping, you'll probably be hungry, so head to Sunset Boulevard for some grub. You'll find everything from fresh seafood to healthy vegan options here. Grab some froyo or a smoothie from one of the neighborhood's cafes and juice bars for dessert.聽All your fur-baby's needs are taken care of here, thanks to the neighborhood's wide selection of groomers, pet boutiques, and veterinary clinics.

The most popular dog names of 2023 in California

Guest Author:聽Amber Spencer-Knowles聽鈥 Stacker Media

You've done everything on your checklist. Got pet insurance and found a great, affordable veterinarian. Didn't forget to puppy-proof the house and scanned high and low for the best quality dog food. Just one thing's missing: What will you name your new furry family member?

In the past century, man's best friend has had various popular names. Spike, Fido, and Buddy are classic names. But what if you're looking for something more unique? Or, you want to give them a classic name, like Charlie? Whatever you choose to call your puppy pal, you want to make sure it's just right.

What's in a name, you might ask? Sometimes, what you see is what you get. Other times, it's quite the complete opposite. According to the PetHelpful, the ideal dog name should be kept to one to two syllables. Why? You'll get your puppy's attention faster. Another helpful tip: give your furry friend a name you won't get tired of repeating.
