“Walking your best friend is an honor!”

Growing up with 4 family dogs and having to take care of them, I can assure you that I will provide quality service for you and your dog. I'm responsible, friendly and organized and always make an effort to make sure both the owner and dog are happy and satisfied at the end of every walk.

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.

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.
