I have been around dogs since I was born. My first dog was a mutt named Rex. After he passed my family adopted a chow/husky mix and we named him Rocky. About 3 years ago I made the move from Pennsylvania to LA and I got a job with a daycare/boarding/grooming place in West Hollywood. I am still currently working there. I love getting to spend time with and learn about the many kinds of dogs we take care of! As well as taking care of the dogs in daycare I also bathe them. This has been another great learning experience and bonding experience for me and the dogs. Thank you for considering me to help take care of your furry friend and I look forward to meeting them!
Inglewood is a wonderful city for both pups and people who enjoy playing outside in the grass. You will find plenty of puptastic parks throughout Inglewood where dogs are welcome on-leash, as long as you are careful to clean up after them before you leave!
Sentinel Field is a lovely spot for you to visit if you need a place to play fetch with your pup with a tennis ball or two. You can also use the space for a family picnic if you want to bring Sparky along for the meal. Darby Park is another pawesome place for you to visit with your dog, with tons of walking paths that are great for dogs of all sizes and ages. You will want to keep a close eye on your pup to make sure he doesn’t get too excited while making all of his new friends on a busy Saturday walk.
There may not be any animal hospitals inside the city limits of Inglewood, but there are five of them less than thirty minutes away in any direction. This should put your mind at ease, knowing that help is nearby if your pup needs a hand while you are traveling through or moving in!
The Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park, located just 11 miles from Inglewood, is a must-see if you’re in the area with your pooch. You’ll find plenty of hiking trails here, which are used by hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders and feature paved and rocky terrain. If your pup doesn't play well with other species (namely horses), you might want to give this one a miss. The rocky trails have a medium incline. The park offers “mutt mitts” along the trails so you can clean up after your pal. There isn’t a lot of shade, so be sure to bring plenty of water along. Your dog must stay on their leash at all times here.
