You know those days where you finally have the time to do something fun, but you can't seem to think of ANYTHING to do for the life of you? I've been there plenty of times!

I'm sure you can also relate to only wanting to go somewhere if you could bring your dog along. I mean, we leave them for work all week so we might as well hang out on our free time, right!? 

I'm right there with you and this year we’re in luck. 2018 is "Year of the Dog" and Los Angeles is packed with fun dog activities to keep you and your best friend busy. 

Get your calendar out and sniff through this list of tail-wagging things to do with your dog this February.

The things you can do with your dog these days are incredible. One classic example of this is DOGA. Yoga + Your Dog = Doga! It’s not like you can ever stretch at home without your furry friend thinking it’s an invite to crawl on you. You might as well bring them along and do it in a group setting. This unique event let’s you do downward dog with your dog and we love it!

Wouldn’t you love to have a customized painted photo of your best friend? What if I told you that you could create it yourself over cocktails at a local restaurant or bar. Grab your friends and spend two hours drinking, laughing and getting your paint on. There’s no experience necessary and all of the supplies are provided. Make sure to reserve a spot before tickets run out!
