All The Reasons Why Dogs (And Their Humans) Love Santa Monica

  |     |   Uncategorized

Santa Monica residents love their pets. On any given day you’ll see people walking the pier, enjoying brunch, or going for a run on the beach with their pets. With so many dog parks, pet-friendly apartments, and events catered to dogs (and the humans that love them) it’s no surprise that pet lovers love Santa Monica. 

If you’re planning a visit (or a move) to Santa Monica with your furry friends, here are a few things you can look forward to while you’re here: 

Pet-friendly Restaurants 

There’s no shortage of great places to eat in Santa Monica. From sushi and steak to pitas and pizza, you can find whatever you’re in the mood for in Santa Monica. Want to bring your well-behaved pup out for a meal? Head over to some of these pet-friendly restaurants for great patio service. 

Stout Burgers and Beer 

Huge burgers, cold beers, and a laid-back atmosphere make this place a favorite for locals. What makes it better is that there are five dog-friendly tables out on the patio that make it easy to bring Fido along for a good meal.  

Ashland Hill 

Ashland has an impressive menu for humans, but it's their dog menu that sets them apart. Your pup can order beef over rice, chicken and rice, or pup-friendly ice cream while you enjoy a good local beer and pub-style food.  

The Misfit Bar and Restaurant 

Another popular restaurant with dog-friendly patio seating, The Misfit Bar and Restaurant has dog-friendly ice cream on the menu and water dishes set up outside.  

Blue Daisy 

If your dog is the brunch-loving type, you’ll love the Blue Daisy. Expect a line on the weekends, and get there early to grab one of the pet-friendly tables outside.  

True Food Kitchen 

Known for its vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free dishes, True Food Kitchen is a pet-friendly spot for lunch or dinner and has outdoor seating for leashed dogs.  

Pet-Related Services 

Santa Monica residents know the importance of self-care, for themselves and their dogs. This is why services like pet spas, pet daycares, and luxury grooming centers are popular throughout the city. It’s easy to find professional dog walkers and trainers in the city, and there are even social groups geared toward specific dog breeds and their owners. Some of the most popular pet-specific services in Santa Monica include: 

For doggie self-care and pampering:  

For specialty food and accessories 

For boarding and daycare services 

Dog Parks in Santa Monica  

While dogs are welcome in countless establishments across the city, dog parks offer your furry friends a place where they feel like they belong. Santa Monica’s dog parks are perfect for letting your dog run off leash and meeting other dog lovers. Treat your dog to an afternoon at one of Santa Monica’s best dog parks: 

Herb Katz Dog Park at Joslyn Park 

This off-leash park has separate areas for big dogs and small dogs. This dog park is shady, has public restrooms, and is fenced in.  

Memorial Dog Park 

This dog run is located inside a bigger public park, so dogs have to be on a leash until they get to the park. This shady dog park is small but a local favorite.  

And in true Santa Monica fashion, there’s an exclusive, members-only dog park called Dog Ppl. Members pay $80 a month for access to a private dog park that offers exclusive services and amenities to make your pet feel like a VIP. If you’re into that kind of thing.
