Who Let the Dogs Out?
As dog owners, we look forward to long summer days with our favorite furry friends. Afternoons at the park, trips to the beach and hikes in the canyons. With so many options to choose from, we’ve narrowed it down to our hot spots.

Located in Long Beach, Rosie’s Dog Beach is the place to go for off-leash, beach fun. Your dog will have the chance to play, socialize and swim. Dogs of all sizes and breeds are welcome! The official dog zone is between Roycroft and Granada Avenues along Ocean Boulevard and is open from 6am to 8pm daily. Don’t forget your frisbee! For more information, click here.

We all love a good brunch and The Morrison in Los Feliz allows your dog to get in the action too with a dedicated menu. Your companion will be able to choose from three dishes: Where’s the Beef made with chopped hamburger beef and rice; Cock-a-Doodle-Doo with chicken and rice and the Franenweenie bowl with chopped hot dogs and rice – all served with a side of Milkbone treats. There is tasty food and drink on offer for the humans too including signature burgers and craft ales. For more details, click here.

One of LA’s hidden natural treasures is also dog friendly. Escondido Falls in the Santa Monica Mountains, just off PCH in Malibu, is a 3.7 mile trail that winds its way through the oak tree-lined Escondido Canyon culminating in the stunning 200 foot waterfalls. The trail can get busy so we recommend going earlier in the day and make sure to take plenty of water. More information is available here.
