Pups and Pooches Happier in West Hollywood

Yelp says your California pooch would be most happy in West Hollywood.

In honor National dog Day over the weekend, Yelp gathered a list of the most dog-friendly cities across the U.S. and WeHo ranked number 3. It was also the only city in California on the list.

“There’s no better feeling than being able to bring your dog while you run errands or grab lunch with your human pals,” Yelp stated on its website. “In fact, our top ten cities certainly agree and welcome dog patrons just as much as they encourage human ones.”

Cities were scored based on the percentage of page views in the “Active” categories that are for dog parks, percentage of page views in the “Pets” categories that are for dog walkers and the percentage of businesses in the restaurants, bars, coffee, hotels and beaches categories for which we had data on whether they indicated they allowed dogs. Only 2 cities per state were included for geographic diversity.

The Top 10 cities are:

1. Arlington, Vir.

2. Tampa, Fla.

3. West Hollywood

4. Dallas, Tex.

5. Portland, Ore.

6. Minneapolis, Minn.

7. Colorado Springs, Col.

8. Seattle, Wash.

9. Jersey City, N.J.

10. Phoenix, Ariz.
