Hike Runyon Canyon with a rescue dog

Los Angeles, United StatesPart of the Airbnb Animals collection

Animal experience hosted by Ryan

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English and Chinese (Traditional)

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.

This is a must do if you are in the Hollywood area, the dogs are so sweet, the path and views are great, you get a mild workout, and Ryan was extremely friendly. Great view of the Hollywood sign as well.

Ryan led an amazing tour of the canyon and was super knowledgeable of the history of the area, the dogs, and all the photo ops. I would love to go again and HIGHLY recommend!
