Hike Runyon Canyon with a rescue dog

Animal experience hosted by Ryan

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.

This experience is great for groups and great for teams! We love to host private and corporate groups, and socializing with the dogs is great for team-building!

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.

Such a great experience. Definitely recommend as it was so much fun being with such great dogs. Plus the cost of the hike goes toward caring for the dogs

We had a lot of fun on this hike with the rescue dogs! The hike was great, it was a good trail, and there were plenty of dogs there.

I had to leave my golden doodle at home for my vacation and when i found this experience I couldn’t pass it up. If u love dogs and hiking this is the perfect combo. It was a little foggy for our hike but the views were still amazing and the fog cleared up a bit as we hiked up the hill. The dogs were wonderful and beautiful. Some i wanted to take home with me. Ryan and his fellow hosts are cool, awesome people. Ryan was really good with his facts about the area and Runyon canyon and had really good recommendations on food. Right after i went to a restaurant he recommended and had the best tacos I’ve ever had. The best part of this experience is that $ u pay goes straight to Ryan and his non profit organization. The hardest part was saying bye to the dogs. I enjoyed this experience so much I might end up booking their Venice beach walk as well knowing that my $ goes straight into helping these wonderful dogs get adopted into their forever loving home. Will definitely be booking this experience again when I’m back in LA.

Ryan and his pack of dogs are just the best. Parking there isn’t impossible, but doable (we went on a Thursday morning). The dogs are sweet & well-behaved (keep an eye on Kimby, he can be feisty). Don’t let the morning fog drag you down: you need to climb the peak to appreciate the views.
