My name is Tony I have a blue nose pit bull that’s 4 years old. I’ve had a few dogs growing up some where my moms some where my grandmas but I’ve been around dogs since I was a baby. I know all the things you need to know about what dogs can and can’t eat and signs that dogs give to express how they are feeling and what calms them when they are scared or have anxiety. So I have a strong care for dogs and like being around them.

“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!

Hi, my name is Jackson and I came to Los Angeles about 3 years ago to pursue acting. I grew up with dogs and they have always been an important part of my life. As I do not have a dog of my own, I have stayed involved with dogs by walking and sitting them, as well as volunteering at shelters when I can. I figure that my love for dogs along with exercising and getting outside in the beautiful LA weather is a great match for me and your dog! Often times I will have an audition or two that take up an hour of my day, but for the remainder, I want to spend it outside, and I feel it is a great use of my time to spend it with some lovable pups. I also don't have a dog of my own but have an apartment that can house them if that is needed.

Dog Walking in Santa Monica

The weather is always sunny, and the water always warm in Santa Monica, California. This renowned beach resort has been in favor with the crowd for over a century and has been expanding steadily in population and households over the last few decades. Santa Monica is a very eco-conscious city and has put several decrees in places to preserve the high living standards of the town.

Waste reduction is high on the list of environmental goals to achieve and it is a common fact animals can produce a lot of waste. That is why Santa Monica does not have one, two or even three but four off-leash dog parks.

The Herb Katz Dog Park, Pacific Street Park, Airport Dog Park and Memorial Dog Park are all fairly similar in what they have regarding amenities and conveniences to offer the loving community: a great opportunity for dogs of all sizes to explore the world, socialize, and meet and make new friends. Small dogs and large dogs are separated for safety reasons, and the parks are fenced off. No leash required as long as dogs are inside the dog park.

The Santa Monica beach brings many tourists to the city. Visitors with pets do not have to worry about a lack of suitable lodging. There is a large number of hotels in town, and a good portion of them allow pets at a special rate.
