Dexter is a small town in Chavez County, less than half an hour from Roswell, New Mexico. This town definitely keeps things simple, but there is still plenty to do and see around the area if you know where to look! Bottomless Lakes State Park is 23 minutes to the north of Dexter. The trip to this gorgeous state park, complete with a swimming area, miles of hiking trails, and views of underwater caverns, is well worth it. Dogs are permitted to join you on the trails or on the beach.
There are no animal hospitals in Dexter, but there are several just twenty minutes away in nearby Roswell. While in the town of Roswell, you will find the Woof Bowl Dog Park is a pupperific off-leash area with watered lawns, fenced-in areas for both large and smaller dogs to run and play, shade trees, and even a water fountain just for pups! There are plenty of waste disposal stations with waste bags included in case you forget yours. Make sure you observe basic courtesy rules when enjoying the dog park, including keeping a leash handy and separating your dog if you notice he is getting too rowdy with others.
You and your handsome hound will fall head over paws for Dexter and its surrounding areas!
