Los Angeles is proof that dogs are not just pets but an extension of our families. Between the plethora of rescue organizations, to enrichment programs, boutiques, and barky brunches, it’s safe to say that dogs are more important to us than ever before. And because dogs are such a part of our lives, businesses have learned to accommodate them. And why shouldn’t they? In fact, dogs might be the perfect partner for a place like LA: dogs are always happy, they love adventures, they don’t gossip, and you can snuggle together when the day is over. Dogs can make a big, unusual city feel like home.
It may come as no surprise that there are always plenty of dog-friendly events going on in LA. No matter what neighborhood you live in, or what your interests are, there is something for you and pups to do. In the spirit of promoting dogs and humans living their best lives, we put together this guide to the best dog-friendly events in Los Angeles.
