My name is Alex and I've been living in Santa Monica for a little over nine years now. I love that West LA is so good for getting outside for runs, walks, bike rides, and hikes, and being active has become one of my favorite past times. I grew up with dogs but haven't had my own in years, so I'm excited that this app gives me the opportunity to spend time with dogs again while getting my own exercise as well. I hope that I can match up with some athletic dogs that can run with me, as I know certain breeds need a lot more than just a walk around the neighborhood to really burn off their energy. I look forward to meeting you and your dog soon.

“Your dog’s BEST FRIEND”

Hi, I'm Quinton! I have had various breeds of dogs while growing up (German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, and Bullmastiff just to name a few). I've fostered, groomed and walked many different breeds of dogs as well! I'm an overall fun and active person, so your dog will definitely have a great time with me! I love jogging too, so if you prefer that your canine friend is more active, I can definitely accommodate.

“All clothing 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!

Dog Walking in Hawthorne

Hawthorne, California isn’t necessarily the most dog-friendly place in California, save for some hotels that allow dogs and three veterinary clinics. Fortunately, many of the towns and cities surrounding Hawthorne are super pet-friendly and they only take minutes to drive to!

Manhattan Beach is just about a 10-minute drive from Hawthorne and is one of the paw-friendliest places you’ll find in the area. Manhattan Beach sits along the west coast and has several dog-friendly beaches and spots along the beach, like the Manhattan Beach Pier. This gorgeous spot not only is the perfect place to watch the sunset, but it also has nearby shops, events, and beaches – many of which allow leashed dogs to join their owners for some fun in the sun.

Hermosa Beach, CA is just a hop, skip, and a bark away from Manhattan Beach and offers dogs and their owners The Strand. This long strand of sandy beach is a favorite for dog owners; many love to walk or jog with their pooches along the water’s edge or join them for a fun game of volleyball. Dog lovers who live in beach homes along The Strand sometimes even set out some doggie treats for visitors! If you're looking to get away from Hawthorne for the day, the nearby towns have so many barktastic adventures to offer you and your dog!
