Any bone-afide dog lover knows just how tricky it can be to find fun, canine-friendly hangout spots. And if the saying rings true and dogs really are human’s best friend, finding some cute locations that have something for both you and your pooch is important! Luckily, we were able to dig up a couple of local, affordable and downright a-bark-able activities for you and your dog.
Serious about both your dog and your coffee? Then LAMILL Coffee is the place for you. LAMILL prides itself in being an “award-winning, premium specialty coffee roaster” known for their trendy interior and avocado toast. Located just eight minutes from a dog park, your pup will be more than at home surrounded by doggy water bowls and delicious homemade dog biscuits available for purchase.
Wait, what?! You read that right, Amoeba Music in Hollywood is officially dog-friendly! Not only is Amoeba the world’s largest record store, but they welcome well-behaved, leashed or carried canines. Even Amoeba staff’s personal pets can be found wandering the racks, and workers are known for giving treats to visiting pups. So next time you feel like browsing for a vinyl or trading in your old collection, bring your dog along!
Recently, museums have become the trendy must-do activity of the moment. Unfortunately, most museums don’t allow our furry friends indoors– but don’t count museums out just yet. The La Brea Tar Pits welcome leashed-pups at many of their outdoor spaces. Watch out for the scary saber-toothed cat statues, but a stroll around the tar pits (and maybe even a history lesson?) is a go!
Located up in Runyon Canyon Park, Bow-Wow Workout allows dogs and their humans the chance to paw-ticipate on a variety of moderately vigorous hiking and strength-training activities. Not only will you and your dog be able to get an off-the-leash outdoor workout, but you will both get the chance to socialize and maybe even make a few friends! The class takes advantage of both natural and human-made workout gear throughout the park. Workouts are $15 Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6 p.m.
It was all paws on deck for the restoration of the Claremont Pooch Park located in Claremont, CA in March 2018. This local gem features a new water fountain, grass, lighting and irrigation system to create a fun summer activity for both pup and owner. Claremont Pooch Park is the perfect place for dogs and owners alike to bond, socialize and enjoy the great outdoors.
