Dog Walking in Lake Arthur

Built for its proximity to the Pecos River, Lake Arthur doesn't have an actual lake to speak of. It is mostly a farming town, with homes spread apart and plenty of room to run and play with your pup. This cozy locale is home to fewer than 500 people and pooches, so if you're looking to settle in somewhere quiet and friendly, Lake Arthur is the pawfect place!

As you might have guessed, this teensy town doesn't have any doggie amenities like dog parks or restaurants. But no need for you and Fido to fret just yet! The town is about forty minutes from the city of Roswell, where you will find a dog park and some dog-friendly restaurants where you can enjoy some quality time with your pooch. Peppers Bar and Grille in Roswell has a beautiful outdoor seating area where you can order and eat without going inside, and they are happy to serve up some dog-approved beef for your pooch upon request! 

Need some vet care while in Lake Arthur? The nearest animal hospitals are about fifteen minutes away from Lake Arthur, in nearby Artesia. The staff at these hospitals will help keep your dog looking and feeling his very best.

While Lake Arthur is a pretty back-to-basics area, you will find the Lake Arthur Town Park is a nice, well-kept spot to take your best bud for a long walk. You will need to keep your dog on-leash in this park, as there are no fences here. Many of the local pet owners prefer to break the leash rules of this park, though. If you choose to let your dog off-leash, make sure he responds well to voice commands, as the park is located right next to a main road. You will need to pack plenty of doggy waste bags and drinking water.

This huge state park, located about 45 minutes from Lake Arthur, is the pawfect place for the whole family. The town of Seven Rivers itself was interestingly a ghost town for many years before Eddy County decided to begin revitalizing it. Brantley Lake seemed the perfect place to start, and it has since become a popular destination for families looking for fun and friendly places to spend their free time in the spring and summer. Your dog is welcome to come with your family as long as he wears his leash and you clean up after him as you make your way through the park.

Just before you get to Carlsbad Caverns, you'll find Whites City, an expansive natural area with plenty of hiking trails located about one hour and 15 minutes from Lake Arthur. The trip is well worth it if you are a nature buff who loves taking your dog hiking with you. Plenty of water is an absolute must for both you and your pooch if you are visiting this gorgeous park. You also need to bring a harness so that your dog can keep up with you along the trails found in the area. Waste bags are always a good idea to help keep the trails clean.

This park is a pupperific place to beat that New Mexico heat in the middle of summer. As long as you keep your dog on-leash and you clean up after him, you are free to have loads of fun there!
