Los Angeles is one of the most incredible cities in the world and it is also one of the most dog-friendly cities. In general, the entire state of California is dog-friendly and in Los Angeles you can find any kind of shops and places where you and your dog will be very happy.
Most hotels in this city accept dogs as long as you pay a deposit and a cleaning fee. When you walk your dog, always do it on a leash Unless in the place they allow you to release it. Fines for leaving your dog off leash are not cheap and can be a bad anecdote from the trip.
