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!

Located just down the street is Urban Plates. This new-age, cafeteria-style eatery loves their furry visitors and has pet-friendly patio seating. Urban Plates is a farm-to-table establishment that has something for everyone, including gluten-free and vegetarian options! The Chimichurri Steak is a customer favorite, but guests can sample many of their offerings before making their selection.

About 27 miles south of Playa Vista is Rosie’s Dog Beach, the only off-leash dog beach in LA County. The beach is open daily from 6 am to 8 pm and provides a great setting for dogs to socialize. There are doggy waste stations and poop scoops in the vicinity, but guests are asked to bring their own bags if possible. There is a one pup per person rule here, so if you have several dogs, bring a couple friends along!  Your pup will have a blast dog paddling and lounging on this 3-acre stretch of dog-friendly shoreline!

The Sepulveda Basin Dog Park in the San Fernando Valley is, without a doubt, one of the best bark parks in the LA area. This airy off-leash park provides plenty of room for your pal to meet and greet other local pooches. There are separate areas for large and small breeds, as well as a special enclosure for the timid guests. The new agility course is truly the favorite spot here and is complete with obstacles for your mutt to show off his moves!  A water station is available for the furry guests, but human patrons will need to bring their own. The park is open from sunrise to sunset everyday (except Friday morning), so there are plenty of paw-portunities to play!
