“Everything I own is covered in dog hair.”

I've always been the one who everyone calls for anything dog related. I've volunteered at shelters, have worked for a pet behaviorist's radio show, grew up with dogs, and currently have two awesome low-rider pit mix rescue pups of my own. I know how much our dogs can affect every aspect of our lives, and I'd like to help alleviate your stress by making sure your buddies are well cared for while you're out. Let me know if your pups would like to go walking with me soon. I can't wait to meet them!

If you live in Echo Park, you are extremely fortunate. Although you do not have access to any dog parks, you have many parks and a gigantic lake in your own backyard! If you feel like you and your furry friend need to get out of the house and into nature, head to Echo Park Lake or Vista Hermosa Natural Park. These locations are not dog parks, so you will have to keep your four-legged companion on a leash and take your own doggie poop bags. However, if you’re looking to have a fun, relaxing day at a beautiful location, these two options will not disappoint!

In addition to eight dog parks, you can take your dog to one of the many dog beaches and shopping areas, such as The Grove, that welcome dogs.

At only eleven miles from Echo Park is the city of Pasadena. It is home to only one dog park, Alice’s Dog Park. This park is basically a large stretch of land where your dog can run and play. The amenities are scarce, so you should definitely take your own water, toys and doggie poop bags. However, this is not the only place in Pasadena that welcomes dogs. You can also make your way to the Eaton Canyon Park and Nature Center, as well as the Strawberry Peak Trail, as long as you keep your four-legged friend leashed at all times.

Located only five miles away from your home in Echo Park is the city of Glendale. It is home to one dog park named the Griffith Park Dog Park. This park is extremely sparse with little grass and amenities. However, it is a great place to take a dog that really needs to stretch their legs and run around. Just make sure that you take your own doggie poop bags, toys and water. Furthermore, once you get bored at the dog park, you can always make your way to Verdugo Park. This is not an off-leash park, but dogs are welcome on the many hiking trails as long as they are leashed at all times.
