What To Do In Los Angeles For National Dog Mom’s Day

Photo by Curtis B.

Sure, all the hype this weekend is for moms, but did you know there’s another celebration that’s specifically for FUR-baby lovers across the country? It’s true, our friends at Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App, founded National Dog Mom’s Day. It’s very similar to Mother’s Day except much cuter, and you’re not required to attend an expensive brunch or purchase any sort of floral arrangement.

We were pretty excited to celebrate this adorable occasion, so we asked our users across the Los Angeles community for advice on where to go and what to do. The results were definitely Yelpy, but not in any sort of a stepped-on-tail way… See below for some of our favorite suggestions, and click here to save and follow some other pup-related bookmark collections on your Yelp app.

Best Place For Your Pup To Show-Off Leash For You 

LA Live Dog Park

Why You’ll Both Love It: “Overall this dog park is pretty nice. Always clean and never too busy. We usually go in the mornings and rarely see any other dogs. The big dog side was a rather largish average sized area. Perfect for my little Mamba! ” – Valerie R.

Best Place For Your Pup To Be Jealous Of Your Breakfast

Home Restaurant – Los Feliz

Why You’ll Both Love It: “My boyfriend and I came here with our dog after hiking the Hollywood sign. The patio is dog friendly and has an awesome ambiance, but the brunch we had was even better! And one of the best Micheladas I’ve had, served in a giant goblet. Would highly recommend checking this little gem out.” – Lauren B.

Best Place To Make Your Mutt Feel Like A Model

Charlie Nunn Photography

Why You’ll Both Love It: “Absolutely every review on here is true. Charlie and Raymond are, in a word, amazing. I was very nervous at first – my pup is skittish around strangers and she gets overwhelmed easily, so I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to have her sit still for photos. Charlie made the whole photo shoot such a fun, relaxing, and personable experience. ” – Isabella C.

Best Place For You To Enjoy An Adult Beverage While Your Pup Hangs With You

Common Space Brewing

Why You’ll Both Love It: “This place is awesome! Bigger than your typical industrial park brewery in South Bay. Huge patio! Lots of different styles of beers (not all IPAs thank god). Dog friendly and games, so what is not to love! Wish I came here sooner. A little off the beaten path in Hawthorne, but worth the drive.” – Lauren A.

Best Place To Treat Your Pup To More Than Biscuits 

Three Dog Bakery Encino

Why You’ll Both Love It: “This dog bakery is wonderful! My puppy, my sister’s dog, and my boyfriend’s dog are all obsessed with the treats (especially the pupcakes) from here. After licking the plate clean, they look around for more! I think my puppy also loves that these treats look like they are for humans.” – Anastasia L.

Best Place For You And Fido To Both Be Foodies

The Morrison

Why You’ll Both Love It: “Why did it take me so long to finally check this place out? This place has it all: a super happy hour, a dog friendly patio, and even a freaked doggy menu! Yes, you read that right! They have their very own doggy menu for your fur child.” – Catalina T.

Best Place To Clean Off A Bad Stench


Why You’ll Both Love It: “Everyone that works here is friendly and sweet. I feel good about leaving my dog here. They always take about an hour for my pug to get washed and groomed. They offer tea tree and hypoallergenic shampoos for pups with sensitive skin.” – Alyssa B.

Best Place To Put Your Pup In A Photo Op

Lake Hollywood Park

Why You’ll Both Love It: “So, I found this place searching for the best view of the Hollywood sign on YouTube. Watching the video, my husband and I made a decision to go to this park, hike a little, and take photos.” – Jocelyn C.
