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!

Dog Walking in South Gate

South Gate is the seventeenth largest city in Los Angeles County. From its beginning as part of the Lugo Land Grant back in 1810, South Gate has become a bustling city. There are four vets, including two animal hospitals, within the borders of South Gate, and more than a dozen more within a fifteen minute drive. Dogs and the people who love them can find many great attractions right in South Gate.

If you fancy a challenge, tackle the Rio Hondo Cycleway. The midpoint of this track runs through South Gate, but the entire thing stretches 17.6 miles. Choose what portion you want to tackle and walk as far as you need to to tire your pup out! If you want a gentler walk, try Circle Park in South Gate. This park features a large open field perfect for on-leash walks.

If you’re looking to spend the night in South Gate, head to American Best Value Inn - South Gate/Downey. This modest hotel chain allows one dog per room for a small pet fee. You can also book a night at Rodeway Inn in South Gate for another pet fee per dog. 

South Gate is a great destination whether you’re having a getaway or a sit-and-staycation!

Hollydale in South Gate is home to an amazing off leash dog park, the Hollydale Dog Park located inside of the Hollydale Regional Park. Shy dogs who prefer on-leash exercise will love the larger regional park, but for everyone else, the off leash fun of Hollydale Dog Park can’t be beat! The area has everything that dogs need, from separate areas based on size to dog-friendly water fountains to keep them cool and hydrated. Humans love the shaded areas and benches! The best feature is how pupular this park is. Your dog will find woofderful friends, and the park’s long open hours (from dawn to dusk) means it works with every schedule.

This park is the pride of South Gate, often packed with events and full of facilities that locals put to great use. The whole family will enjoy the pool and the playground, but your dog is going to be interested in one thing: the many walking trails in the area!

The Stanford Avenue Park in the Firestone Park neighborhood of South Gate is an amazing place to bring your dog! This heavily residential area is a great backdrop for a low-stress walking experience.

If you want to just get your pup’s walk in without a lot of distractions, this is the place to do it.

Lynwood Park is a 2 minute drive from South Gate into the neighboring town of Lynwood. Located in the North East Lynwood neighborhood, this park serves as a gathering place for plenty of Lynwood residents. Your dog might not care much about the pool, but the sports fields are a fantastic place to explore when not in use! Even if there’s a game that day, the park has several paths to choose from. Walking a few loops of the park is enough to get in some exercise and enjoy the great day. Dogs should remain on leash inside Lynwood Park. You should also bring a bowl and baggies with you.
