Bring a Puppy on a Private Tour of Hollywood
One reason to bring your dog along on a visit to Los Angeles is a custom private tour where your pet is not only welcome but we see that there is as much fun for the animal as for its people. Our hiking tours are especially good fun for our four-legged guests. Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills is a moderate hike with lots of sights along the way that harken back not only to old Hollywood and the likes of Charlie Chaplin but even to a notorious outlaw who made this canyon and park his home until, well, the law won. Now we are more likely to pass by young Hollywood stars out for a nature walk with their pets up and down the steep hillside. There are also the outdoor yoga classes. The views of the Los Angeles basin are spectacular as well as a a nice look at the Hollywood Sign to the east high atop Mt. Lee. If we head up early then the morning clouds will cool us down. We have water and snacks for everyone (yes, pet snacks, too!) and our guests will have a number of good photos of them and their doggie with Hollywood in the background.
A Private Tour in Hollywood with Your Dog
With as many cool stops as we make to walk around all the best parts of Los Angeles having a dog along as a guest is no problem at all. In fact, we can make it a point to not only visit the Hollywood Sign but spend some time in the big park just below the hallowed sign. But wait, there’s more. We know where all the best celebrity dog parks and walking paths are in Beverly Hills, Brentwood and Bel Air. Want to visit the shore with your best bud? Let’s go and meet some surf samoyeds and beach beagles. We will bring doggie treats with us to complement the human snacks we always have aboard our luxury SUVs but can take you to some excellent doggie bakeries we know about in the area for an extra special treat. Does your puppy love movie star dogs? We know where their stars are on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as locations used in filming their movies and television shows. Let’s just dedicate the tour to all things dog in Hollywood and thank goodness for Rin Tin Tin, Benjie and Air Bud (OK, Lassie and Asta, too). Hooch, anyone?
Our Private Tour Guests See This Corner of
Beverly Hills All the Time
This vintage photograph of movie star Cary Grant walking his Siamese cat in Beverly Hills is currently swirling through the internet and landed in our inbox. We pass by this corner regularly as we explore the area of Beverly Hills south of Wilshire Boulevard, “Lower Beverly Hills” to some of the locals, where the less fortunate of the well-to-do live. The movie CLUELESS reminds us that Sunset Boulevard is a dividing line in the social strata much as Wilshire Boulevard is. Three distinct price ranges for homes in this lovely city. The homes here beneath the Golden Triangle are lovely, if modest, and the neighborhoods peaceful, and we love showing the area off to our private Los Angeles tour guests because there are so many celebrity homes around here and stories to be shared.
How to Cool the Puppies Off After a Hot Private Tour
In an increasingly pet friendly world of hotels and restaurants, especially here in Los Angeles, we are doing more and more private K9 tours of the southland. That means visiting the best celebrity dog parks – ever. We also show their masters around Hollywood and Beverly Hills to human-friendly sights and destinations. Our guests (hirsute or otherwise) always have a great time and this is truly a valuable way to enjoy a visit to Los Angeles with your pet along for the ride. But what else is there to do with your four-footed family member? Our dog-loving guides all recommend Paradise Ranch Pet Resort, a spa and water park (hotel and restaurant) just for dogs. Big or small, outgoing or shy, loud or quiet, it doesn’t matter to them because fun and frolic is the name of the game. It is a hop-skip-and-a-bark away from all the studios and glamor of Hollywood. Sharing our philosophy of cage-free boarding for dogs, Kristyn Goddard and Brian Kneier, the owners, treat all the animals with great love and respect. Take the kids to Raging Waters or Magic Mountain and take the dog to Paradise Ranch Pet Resort.
