What you'll do

A morning hike to stunning city views, in a dog friendly park with our rescue dogs!

We will enjoy a nice walk up hiking trails to the top of Runyon Canyon. Fantastic city views, and the perfect view of the Hollywood Sign!

As you climb your way up the hill with your new pals in tow, you’ll be exercising and socializing the dogs, and letting locals know they’re up for adoption. You’ll also become a puppy paparazzi and take their photos in front of panoramic backdrops—you can even pose with them with the famous Hollywood sign behind you. Your pictures will then be used to generate interest in the rescue organization, attract potential adopters, and bring in donations that will help further care for and foster the dogs until they find their forever homes.

COVID Safety: A mask is required. We have hand sanitizer, though you should also bring your own.

Make it a morning "workout", with a healthy hike up Runyon Canyon while helping dogs, then go get a fresh juice and start your day!

Make it a fun date, and go bop around Hollywood (walking distance from the park) afterward!

Late riser? Join us on Sunday when we start at 10am, and then go get a fab late-breakfast at The Griddle on Sunset!

So many ways to make it a fun part of your day :-)
Other things to note
We will be in direct sun, so bring sunscreen and other protective wear. There are no bathrooms in Runyon Canyon. Your friendly dog is welcome to join us! Street parking is very difficult.

This was a fantastic way to spend my birthday. Ryan brought 3 adorable rescue dogs (Pink, Princess, Toby) for the 3 guests to walk. We had never visited Runyon Canyon before and it couldn’t have been a better location. Ryan led us on a well-paced walk and taught us about the park and the dogs. All of the proceeds go to Ryan’s rescue organization and AirBnB didn’t even take a cut. If you love being around dogs, this hike is highly recommended.

This was very meaningful must have experience in LA. Being able to interact directly with the dogs and hearing their stories really felt special and is something I will never forget. Also 100% of the costs go directly to the nonprofit for taking care of the dogs and their needs. You also get to spend time with some cute doggos. Ryan was an awesome guide and made sure everyone was safe and comfortable. Would definitely recommend !
