Sunland Park is a city in southern Doña Ana County, New Mexico, situated right on the borders of Texas and the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It is a great place to stop by with your pup, featuring interesting desert landscape and lots of walks to seek out, you and your pooch will have a lovely time here. There is one veterinary hospital in Sunland Park and additional animal hospitals and vet clinics in nearby Santa Teresa and El Paso, so help is never far away should your pet become unwell.

Exploring Mount Cristo Rey has to be your first excursion in Sunland Park. The 4.4-mile round trip is well worth it when you see the incredible views from the top of Sierra de Cristo Rey, so bring your camera! Standing at the top is a 29 ft. tall limestone statue of Christ, a spectacular monument and shrine for worshippers from all over the area. Make sure you bring plenty of water up here, as there isn’t any available. Pets are welcome on the trail, but keep your buddy leashed at all times.  

For another walk with your pet, seek out the trail along the Rio Grande through Sunland Park. Again, keep your pet leashed here while you enjoy your exercise and explore the town.

These are just a few things to do while visiting Sunland Park. Grab the lead and get out and about – you are sure to enjoy your stay!

    The Keystone Heritage Park in nearby El Paso is a must-see for visiting pooches in this area. Set over 52 spectacular acres of botanic garden, wetlands and desert, this park has so much to offer. Take a walk with your pup along the three mile trail around the lake, and then up to the dam ridge where you can take in lovely views of Mt Franklin. The gardens themselves are equally impressive, with incredible selections of native dry-climate species. Keystone Heritage Park is also a Texas State Archaeological Landmark, being the site of an ancient village and home to human-made structures as old as 4,500 years. You will need to keep your pup leashed as you explore this park together.
