Your pet will have plenty to be excited for. LA is a dog-loving city and it shows in the number of pet stores and grooming salons. You'll find boutique stores like Puppyroo Fashion, Go-Doggy-Go Pet Supplies, and Pussy & Pooch Pethouse and Pawbar, and you'll find retail chains that provide easy access to supplies and food for your pup. Don't worry, the Little Tokyo Pet Clinic and Grand Park Animal Hospital are located in the northeastern part of Downtown LA if you have an emergency.
Downtown LA is definitely an ideal place to roam for the city-loving dog. After a stroll through the parks or streets, you can stop and rest at a dog-friendly restaurant or partake in some retail therapy and window shopping. A walk here can be fun for pups who love meeting people and love being in the middle of it all, but maybe not so much if you're looking for an all-around peaceful excursion.You're in the center of a very large city, so don't expect a lot of sprawling forestland everywhere. While Downtown LA has many parks and scenic areas to explore, you should still expect to encounter many crowded, concrete sidewalks. The roads are very busy as well, so always keep your pet on a tight leash and watch out for fast-moving vehicles. Don't let Fido run into the street before you when crossing the road.
There's also green space outside the Los Angeles Public Library perfect for a rest or some people watching. Spring Street Park is another small greenway that offers a place to sit and enjoy a sunny day. As a dog-loving city, you know there has to be a place for them to enjoy! The Arts District Dog Park is where you can let your pet run free and meet some new friends.
