Albuquerque is home to many parks, trails, and beaches. The city is located in the Rio Grande Valley, most known for the Sandia Mountains to the east, featuring the Sandia Crest toppling the elevation chart at 10,678 feet and the Petroglyph National Monument to the west. The weather is normally warm and dry, making Albuquerque ideal for day trips with your furry friend.

The combination of unique geographical features here has given rise to a variety of recreational areas. One of these is the Paseo del Bosque Trail, a 16-mile path that passes through several areas of interest. Here, you and your pup might encounter runners, bicyclists, equestrians, and different species of wildlife while enjoying the fresh air.

Along this trail lies Tingley Beach, where families can fish, boat, picnic, hike, and relax. The beach is dog-friendly though pets must be leashed while here. For off-leash exercise, visit North Domingo Baca Dog Park, which offers a beautiful view of the mountains.

Plenty of restaurants and hotels throughout Albuquerque welcome dogs, so you and your pup can easily find a place to relax at the end of the day. Grab a bite to eat on a restaurant patio, and watch the moon rise over the mountains. Whether you are passing through or call the city home, you are sure to find a pet-friendly establishment here to meet you and your dog's needs.
