Los Alamitos is a moderate sized town located in the southern part of California. In this area alone, there are nine veterinarians that service all types of pets. Los Alamitos is located only 6 miles from the coast where plenty of fun can happen in beachy areas! Rosie's Dog Beach is the only off-leash dog beach, and is only a little over 6.5 miles away.
If you get hungry, check out Hof's Hut, an American establishment in Los Alamitos that has ten places to sit outdoors with your canine companion. If you are in the mood for something sweeter, check out Polly's Bakery Cafe, which serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and sweets at its outdoor seating area.
About 30 miles to the northeast, past Los Angeles, is Runyon Canyon Park. This park is 160 acres in total and has a 90-acre space where dogs can play off-leash. In the same area, but closer to Los Angeles, is an outlet of sorts called The Grove. Here, you’ll find shopping, dining, and enjoyment in a pet-friendly (and child-friendly) atmosphere. There’s also a farmers market and a park next door! Fido needs to remain on a leash at all times here.
This residential community is easily accessible from Interstate 405, Interstate 605, and offers plenty of shopping and a dog-friendly park!

The local PetSmart inside the Shops at Rossmoor not only provides your pup with food, treats and toys, but they also host fun, seasonal dog-friendly events like Easter Fun for Every Bunny.
