“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!

Dog Walking in Sherman Oaks

Located just northwest of the downtown area, Sherman Oaks is a neighborhood in Los Angeles that is popular among families who are looking for suburban comforts. With six veterinarians in the immediate area and several others spread thoughout the neighboring communities, keeping your canine companions healthy is easy. It’s also easy to keep your four-legged friends entertained thanks to several pet-friendly destinations, including parks, restaurants and hotels.

When you are in the mood for a hike, check out Deervale-Stone Canyon Park. This 80-acre park is one of the area’s best-kept secrets that features a 1.6-mile trail. The park’s entrance is located at the top, which makes for an interesting “backward” hike, and dogs are always welcome to accompany their owners.

Grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants with dog-friendly outdoor seating, including Maria’s Italian Kitchen and Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. Need a place to stay? Check out Best Western Plus Carriage Inn. This affordable hotel allows both large and small dogs for a nominal fee, and guests are welcome to bring more than one furry travel companion.

Whether you are a LA-area resident or you are just passing through Sherman Oaks with your favorite travel buddy, you’re sure to find plenty to do in this popular neighborhood.

Southwest of Sherman Oaks lies the community of Tarzana. Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park is located in this area, and it is the perfect place to go when you want to spend some time in the wilderness away from the chaos of city living. This dog-friendly park offers plentiful hiking opportunities on both paved trails and rocky ridges. Enjoy stunning views of the ocean and downtown LA while your canine companion gets some much-needed exercise. Well-behaved dogs are welcome to explore off-leash, and there are “mutt mitts” along many of the trails for easy cleanup. There is no running water, so remember to bring drinks.
