You may know Dallas as the home of Cowboys football, but did you know it also hosts lots of dog-friendly bars where you can relax, visit friends and sip beer, cocktails and wine with your furry bestie? 

From English-style taverns to bars with dog parks, Dallas is the place to step out with your furry pal for a bite to eat and some drinks. Dallas’s bar scene is a howling good time!  Here’s a list of dog-friendly places for you and Bosco to enjoy!

Not only do they provide a pawsome patio where leashed doggos can hunker down with a burger or other treat, but there’s also a large play yard where they can frolic off-leash, too! Small pups have their own area, and pup parents can sit inside the dog park sipping a brew while the pooches play. Mutts Canine Cantina also provides attendants that keep an eye on things, ensure there’s plenty of water, and clean up so you can relax. The dog park is members-only, but their reasonable fees for a whole day of fun can’t be beat! 

Food at Mutts is casual fare that can be shared with Fido, but it also offers Doggie Dog: bite-size pieces of 100 percent all-beef franks for the pooch to snack on. For dessert, Fido will enjoy a pupsicle made with peanut butter frozen in chicken broth on an edible stick. For humans, the food includes chicken, breakfast items, burgers and grilled cheese with hot pickles inside.
