Hike Runyon Canyon with a rescue dog

Los Angeles, United StatesPart of the Airbnb Animals collection

Animal experience hosted by Ryan

2 hours, 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 hands down, the best experience out there. You get to interact with cute pups, learn a lot about Hollywood and Runyon’s history, as well as meet people from all over. We went on this hike 4 years ago and fell in love with one of the dogs and adopted him. We love to come back and do the hike when we’re in town. Forever grateful to Free Animal Doctor for our wonderful dog!

We had such a fun time walking with the dogs who were all super friendly and loving :) Ryan, the host, was also a great guide to have.

What a great hike! Ryan & Candy are awesome & the rescue pups were so fun! I recommend this hike for anyone in the area that wants to spend about 2 hours hiking with a bunch of rescue dogs.

This was an amazing tour! The dogs and other walkers were so fun and energetic. Walking, views, meeting new friends, supporting an amazing non profit organization, it’s a no brainer this is the place to be. Can’t wait to book my next one! The Venice walk looks exciting as the Runyon one.

Great experience and a good cause helping dogs get socialized for adoption, highly recommend if you are a dog/animal lover! It was a fairly easy hike, going up a steady incline and coming down was a bit rocky but nothing difficult. Dogs were all very sweet, and Ryan will warn you of any specific things to look out for certain dogs (i.e. don't like to be picked up, lunges at unfamiliar dogs). This is def something we would do again whenever we're back in LA!
