Love them or hate them, it’s no secret that Santa Monica is a dog friendly city. Walk along Montana Avenue and you will notice a wide variety of breeds and meet plenty of animal enthusiasts. If you’ve got a canine companion and are looking for places to take man’s best friend, I have a few recommendations for you!
If you don’t have a dog, and you want one, most weekends in front of Citibank @ 15th & Montana Avenue you can adopt a pet without having to leave the convenience of Montana Avenue. My friend and client Betsy is there more often than she would like to admit and would love to help you help her find new homes for these unfortunate furry friends. If Betsy is not there, there are plenty of local shelters to choose from, just check out the Forgotten Dog Foundation. They foster pets before giving them a permanent home to ensure that the animals are healthy, happy and trusting again!
Treat your pup to a day at the spa at Montana Avenue’s To Wag For, the owner is fantastic and highly recommended throughout the neighborhood. Great for daycare or grooming services including a special boutique for all your dog’s needs.
After a day of pampering there’s no better time to book a private photo shoot. Bark Pet Photography offers reasonable, high quality pictures that are sure to capture your dog’s personality. Images are perfect for framing or sharing on social media. Be sure and email me your favorite pic and I’ll feature your pooch in the next edition of the Dogs of Montana Avenue calendar!
