Dog Day LA
About 2 1/2 years ago a beautiful black and white Husky became part of my everyday. Had to. His crystal blue eyes and lovable heart drew me in instantly. As it turns out, having a furry son in Los Angeles is quite lovely. Even at the Beverly Center you will see furry companions shopping along side their owners. I mean, come on, pups gotta love a little visit to Bloomingdales too.
I especially love to hike and dine with my sweetie boy next to me and Blue is a very graceful one, demonstrating his joy in downward dog and back leg extensions on the daily. Out on the town, he makes sure he gives as many hugs as he can, filling the city with just a little more love. Hiking and clean eating help him maintain his healthy physique. You can find him prancing on Fryman Canyon off of Lauren Canyon, Runyon Canyon in Hollywood and his absolute fave, the fabulous trail off Mandeville Canyon Fire Road in the Santa Monica Mountains.
Each of these trails allows your pup buddy to be leash free (most of the time) and get the proper exercise they need. Hiking with your animal absolutely benefits you and them. You can count on both of you sleeping better and improving your cardiovascular health, all while soaking up some necessary sunshine and the ever needed vitamin D. Oh wait, and let’s not forget, Leo Carrillo Beach in Malibu, with a separate area for dogs to sunbath, run free in the ocean or chill under a shady area on the sand. It is beyond awesome!
And after your glorious west side romp, an absolute must to rejuvenate the system is a rockin' smoothie from Juice Crafters in Brentwood, or the Palisades. One of my go-to’s is their Divine Start or Pacific Love. Full of yummy nourishment to balance out the body and soul. And I love that Blue sits out with me on the bench while the deliciousness gets whipped up. And yo, there are 187 restaurants that are dog friendly, just another awesome reason why I love LA! Just to name a few of our favorites, SAGE in Culver City, LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN on Roberston, ALCOVE in Los Feliz and EREWHON by The Grove. What a blessing to be able to grab a bite and not to have to worry or be without your furry child. Feeling so grateful for the animal friendly support Los Angeles.
