Northridge is a neighborhood of the grand city of Los Angeles. Known mainly for being home to California State University Northridge, the neighborhood was originally named Zelzah. The community then thought it would be a good idea to rename the neighborhood “North Los Angeles” in 1929 to help bring more hype to the booming area. The name was finally changed for a third time after people became confused and Northridge became its permanent name.

This lovely community offers delicious restaurants that you and your pup can enjoy together, like Shredded Tacos. Northridge is home to six veterinary clinics that you can take your pup to for a healthy checkup. Since Northridge is in Los Angeles, you don’t have to worry about finding a pet-friendly hotel to stay at. Hotels like Extended Stay American Los Angeles Northridge welcomes your dog to spend an evening with them.

Northridge is filled with six beautiful parks that your dog can explore. Be sure to take Fido to Zelzah Park which has so much open green space he will want to run around forever. If hiking is more of your style, then there is a great hiking trail ten minutes out of Northridge.

Review by Veronica C.

"Arin was super great to my dogs. Sometimes they don't like leaving me but they left with no problem which always makes me feel good and comfortable. It means they trust the walker and I can trust the walker. Arin knew my neighborhood and was first to say he would stay in the quiet areas which is nice since I live on a busy street. Thanks so much Arin from Buddy, Riah and I. "
