Westside Los Angeles is the region located west of the downtown business core. This region is a popular tourist destination with beaches, scenery, shopping, and entertainment. Famous for its beautiful sunny weather, affluent and exclusive shopping opportunities, and spectacular beaches, this region is pleasant to walk around even in the winter with little rain, warm temperatures, and beautiful scenery.  Main roads in the area feature trendy restaurants, exclusive shopping, and plenty of services for both tourists and locals. Many residents can access services on foot in their neighborhoods, although some larger, more exclusive neighborhoods are further from commercial areas and residents need to drive to get to them. Residents and tourists also enjoy the sandy beaches along the coast, however, not all beaches are dog-friendly, so check for local regulations in your area. There are many other sites to see such as activity-filled thoroughfares where dogs are welcome on a leash and where residents can enjoy neighborhood strolls.

Greenways and green spaces are plentiful in Westside, Los Angeles, but of particular interest to pet owners are the trailheads in the Santa Monica Mountains which provide miles of natural trails to explore with an energetic pup.  Be aware of steep climbs and rough terrain, but the views of the ocean and the city are well worth the effort. 


The Strand is a bike and skate path that extends south from Santa Monica to Redondo and Torrance Beach. Teach your dog to run with your bike or while you skate to really enjoy this greenway along the ocean! There is also a plethora of dog parks located throughout the West Side, most of which have fenced off-leash areas to enjoy. Bluff Creek Dog Park, Boneyard Dog Park, Veterans Barrington Park, Westminster Off-Leash Park, Westwood Dog Park, and Beverly Hills Dog Park all provide off leash play areas for West Side woofers to romp and play.
