What makes a restaurant pet-friendly?
There is a difference between a restaurant that markets their place as ‘pet-friendly’ and one that says ‘pets allowed’.
A pet-friendly restaurant is one which offers an experience geared towards the enjoyment of both humans and pets. Which often means, they are welcoming to your dog, will have an outdoor area, and some will even go as far as to offer a menu dedicated to pets.
What to bring for your dog when visiting these restaurants?
When you’re heading out into the city of Los Angeles with your dog, there are a few things you will need to bring with you:
- Take a sturdy and stylish collar or harness with you to keep your dog reeled in when needed. Here's a link to our Harness + Leash Sets
- A leash will help you keep your dog close by.
- It might be worth bringing a chew toy to keep your dog entertained too.

- It’s always wise to have identification on their collar or harness.
- You’ll also need some dog waste bags because you can never be too careful.
If you’re well equipped with these essentials, you’ll keep your pup comfortably happy while you’re exploring the beautiful city of Los Angeles.
