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 Venice

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!

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.

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!

Alsace is a quiet, residential neighborhood in Playa Vista made up of several new homes and many high-rise apartments. It is also where Oberrieder Dog Park is located, and it has become a favorite spot for dogs and their owners to hang out and enjoy the California weather. The park, like many dog parks, has separate sections for big and small dogs, and it has wood chips instead of grass, which makes cleaning up after your dog a lot easier. The spacious park is the pawfect place to burn off some energy with your dog, and it has a water fountain and some seating for when you both need to take a break, too.

Just southeast of the legendary Santa Monica Pier lies the neighborhood of Ocean Park. It’s only a 15-minute drive from Venice, and Ocean Park is an artsy and trendy neighborhood with plenty of coffee shops, boutiques, and art galleries to explore. When you are looking to explore Ocean Park with your pup, try out Herb Katz Dog Park, which is located within Joslyn Park in Santa Monica. With over 1.25 acres for Rover to sniff his way around, it’s a fair size for a dog park, and it also has agility equipment for adventurous dogs. There’s a separate, fenced area for little dogs and even a playground and basketball court nearby.

West Los Angeles is an eclectic neighborhood known for its plentiful Japanese restaurants within what’s known as “Little, Little Tokyo.” If you are in the area and looking to take your pooch to socialize and exercise, check out Veterans Barrington Park in West Los Angeles. This dog park is broad and flat, which makes it ideal for dogs who like to run! Conveniently, the park has high fences, and each area is double-gated, so your dog is safely contained within the park. Some of this park's other great features are a water fountain, pooper-scoopers and doggie bags, benches, and even free parking!
