Visitors and locals alike will be glad to know that Los Angeles is such a pet-friendly city. There are dozens of hotels throughout the city that welcome dogs, cats and other pets for a nominal fee. Even better, many of them offer amenities like pet-sitting services, treats and beds. For the ultimate in luxury four-legged accommodations, check your pet into the Kennel Club LAX, which offers lodging, grooming, spa services and more. Dogs on-leash are welcome at outdoor shopping malls, the Griffith Observatory, and throughout the Travel Town Museum. In general, dogs are permitted on-leash in most state parks, but your canine companion will love running free at dog parks like Laurel Canyon, and along Runyon Canyon’s hiking trails, where celebrities bring their prized pooches. After all that exercise, both you and your pet can dine alfresco at one of LA’s many pet-friendly restaurants. Take your pet on vacation with LA Tourism’s guide to pet-friendly Los Angeles.
