Whittier is a city that’s on the up and coming. The town’s growth has been slow and gradual, but the last census showed a definite increase in population. With population comes pupulation, and the services that they need to sustain them. Consider that there are seven vets and animal hospitals within Whittier, and then try to say that dogs here don’t have it good. If you’re looking for the full Whittier experience, start with a bite to eat at Ruby’s Diner, where dogs are welcome and classic diner favorites never stop flying.

If a hike is in order, try the Murphy Ranch Park. Your on-leash dog is welcome to join you on the 1.6 mile loop with views of Whittier. If you need more of a challenge to tire your dog out, try the Whittier Turnbull Canyon Hiking Trail. This four-mile loop is a lot steeper, so make sure you bring plenty of water, but the views of the canyon can’t be beat.

At the end of a long day, you want to come home and relax. In Whittier, that means Motel 6 Whittier or, if you don’t mind a small pet fee, the Radisson Hotel Whittier and Vagabond Inn Whittier both offer dog-friendly rooms.

The Friendly Hills neighborhood of Whittier takes doggy dining seriously. There are two local favorites in the neighborhood for you to try. First, head over to Original Roadhouse Grill.

The Fullerton neighborhood of Sunny Hills is home to Fullerton Pooch Park. Yes, the park is exactly as cute as that name would suggest! It’s also only 25 minutes from Whittier. The park is divided into two areas. The first is for large dogs, and contains some enrichment equipment like a large climbing tire. The second area is for small dogs, and while it doesn’t have as many toys, it does have great benches and places for you to rest while your little one tears it up. The park is popular with locals, so expect to make at least one new friend!

Penn Park in East Whittier is a great place to take your dog for a nice, relaxing walk in nature. Though the park itself isn’t incredibly large, it gives the impression that you’re a thousand miles from your troubles. The parks paths wind through grassy areas and even have a waterfall along the way! There’s also picnic tables, bathrooms, and a play area for kids. Dogs will have to stay on leash inside the park, but there’s so much going on that any dogs who like to people-watch won’t mind. Bring your own water bowl, as these fountains are too tall for dogs!

Orange Avenue Junction is a brightly named neighborhood in West Covina. Just 25 minutes from Whittier, this neighborhood is home to the Central Bark Dog Park. Critics haven’t been ruff with this park; it’s popular with locals and those just passing through. This park has some trees, and benches for tired dogs and owners to relax after a romp session. The area is split into large and small dog fenced areas. Before you head into the Central Bark Dog Park, make sure you have some water and a bowl. The one drawback to this spacious park is that they don’t have water fountains on site.
