Yuma, Arizona is a large desert city that is surrounded by a lot of rugged terrains. Perfect for pet owners who love the heat and uniqueness of a desert location! There are plenty of things to be seen and smelled with your pet.
For an everyday paw-stretcher, you can visit the Yuma Bark Park. With fenced-in, off-lead areas, a few bits of agility equipment, water fountain, and benches, this is a great park to let Fido blow off some steam. For busier pets or a weekend adventure, take your pet to the Yuma Crossing Bike Path. This 1.5-mile trail is a great jaunt to get some great exercise.
When it is time to turn in for the evening, check into the Howard Johnson Yuma. This clean, classy hotel will welcome you and your pet with open paws. They welcome up to two pets to stay with you.
At mealtime, there are a few choices that you can select. Some of the highest rated are River City Grill and Das Bratwurst Haus. River City Grill offers a wide range of food; everything from seafood to Asian cuisine, to Italian dishes. This restaurant is sure to suit the pickiest of eaters, and Fido is welcome to scraps on the outdoor seating.
True to the name, Das Bratwurst Haus serves traditional German and Eastern European dishes. They also welcome well-behaved pets to join you outside. I'm sure they would appreciate a slip of bratwurst as well!
Yuma is a rugged beauty of a city, but there is certainly something to be enjoyed by all types of pet owners here.
The neighborhood of West Wetlands is a combination of preserved nature areas and real estate development. The upscale and unique developments in this part of Yuma lend to the growth of the leisure class of dogs. The West Wetlands Park is the wellspring of the natural spirit of this upscale neighborhood. It covers 110 acres of trees, grass, and lake. Dogs may enjoy the trails on leash. A quick romp in the pond will help your furry friend cool down on the average Arizona summer day. The Park has five ramadas, a butterfly garden, a boat ramp, an equestrian trail, and other amenities. Just don’t let Fido chase any butterflies!
