It may come as no surprise that there are always dog-friendly events happening in Los Angeles. Therefore, no matter what neighborhood you live in, or what your interests are, there is something for you and your pup to do.

So, here is our guide to best dog-friendly events in Los Angeles and beyond for February 2023.
