We love taking advantage of the many hiking trails and incredible views that LA has to offer & we're always pleased when we can find a way to tire out our energetic dogs as often as possible. So we were beyond thrilled to see this fantastic LA Times interactive guide to dog-friendly hikes in Southern California.
In addition to including detailed maps & info on nearly 20 trails, the interactive guide also includes common doggie dangers to keep in mind as you explore. From foxtails & ticks to snakes & poison oak, the guide gives you great tips on what to be aware of and what to do should your fido get into trouble.
Our favorite part of this handy interactive guide, however, is the perfectly illustrated Hiking Tips section section:
We know quite a few fidos that have that exact same bowl and those very same booties! These pre-hike & during the hike tips along with the trail maps are an excellent resource for anyone looking to break out of their usual fido walking routine. Downtown residents in particular could certainly use a break from our concrete haven & take respite among the trails and trees. See you and your fido out there?
