Dog Areas in Venice, CA

1 Park
18 Eateries
3 Groomers

Venice began as a beach resort town in 1905, and it has since blossomed into a cultural hub with a world-renowned beach (which includes the famous Muscle Beach!) complete with some of the best surfing waves out there, an ultra-fun boardwalk, and a system of man-made canals. Your pooch can join you for a walk on the boardwalk and on certain parts of Venice Beach, but there is plenty for you to do with your dog in other parts of Venice as well.

Venice is home to over 18 restaurants that allow you to eat on their patios with your dog, and let's face it, with the amazing weather in California, who would want to eat inside anyway? Among these restaurants is the French Market Cafe, an adorable little restaurant along historic Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Here, your dog can join you on their patio while you dive into their extensive breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu.

When you’ve spent your day at the beach or trying out local restaurants and you’re ready to try something new with your dog, check out Bruno’s Cat and Dog Boutique, a pet supply shop with high-quality pet food and sniff-tastic toys and treats. Whether you spend your time on a patio, a beach, on the boardwalk, or shopping with your pup, Venice will astound you with all it has to offer you and Fido!

    #1 Oakwood

    Oakwood is one of the most historic neighborhoods in all of Venice. It’s located inland from some of the more touristy areas, and it is flush with trendy cafes and restaurants. Oakwood is also home to a large dog park known as Westminster Dog Park. This busy park has a section for large dogs (complete with a hill your pooch can run up and down to tire themselves out!) and a smaller dog section. There are some seating areas, and the area is made up of wood chips, grass, and dirt. Some guests note there isn’t a lot of shade at this park, so you may not want to visit this park in the middle of a hot day.

    #2 Windward Circle

    Located just a few blocks from Venice Beach, Windward Circle is a residential neighborhood that was once considered to be "the center" of Venice when it was first established and was home to the first famous Venice rollercoaster. Today, Windward Circle is considered the "East Village" of Venice, as many residents of the neighborhood work in the arts and entertainment industry. Its proximity to the beach is handy, especially if you like to walk your dog there! You will also want to visit Baby Blues BBQ which is a favorite dog-friendly (at the patio tables) restaurant in Windward Circle when you're in the mood for some southern-inspired deliciousness!
