With Spring right around the corner, togetherness and fun in the sun are certainly on the agenda for many. For many animal lovers, that typically includes our precious, furry, four-legged friends. In sun-shiny California, many places welcome both humans and furballs alike. Quite a few restaurants allow dining with pets, even if it is usually kept on the patio, although with the infamously beautiful Cali weather, that sounds almost like heaven! Here are a few of our top choices for dog-friendly restaurants in the Westchester and Culver City areas in California.

Not that you did, but if you ask us, hanging out, stuffing your snout with man’s best friend isn’t too far off from Paradise. Luckily in the beautiful state of California, many places welcome both two-legged and four-legged guests. Of course, you’ll want to practice good pet etiquette (dog semi well-trained, muzzled if he has a habit of nipping, etc.) Have a ruff-tastic time!
