With hundreds of hiking trails and wide open parks across the city, Los Angeles is one of the best cities for hanging with your four-legged friend. Restaurants and bars are dog-friendly, too - many offer water bowls and doggie treats for your pup. Ready to add to your furry family? Book a session at a dog or cat cafe and you might meet your new bestie.
Start with breakfast in Venice and a coastal drive to Leo Carrillo State Park in Malibu. After lunch, cat lovers can spend an hour in "purradise" while doggies head to Kenneth Hahn Park. Enjoy a poolside dinner at Hotel June, then pick a winner at the famous turtle races at Brennan's.
You're definitely getting your steps in today, from hiking the wildly popular Runyon Canyon to exploring Griffith Park and playtime at Lake Hollywood. Later on, it's dinner and a movie at Tom Bergin's and a pint or two at Wirtshaus.
Today you'll explore the vast playground of the Valley, including two off-leash parks and beautiful Lake Balboa. Add a pic of your pup to the Blue Dog Beer Tavern's Wall of Fame, then test your archery skills at Woodley Park and relax with a pint at Springbok. End your night in NoHo with dinner at The Fat Dog and drinks on the patio at Idle Hour, home to the giant bulldog.
