West Sahara is a planned neighborhood that is located 30 minutes southwest of the downtown district of Las Vegas, Nevada. The neighborhood has a commercial area along the northern border and in the northeast section of the neighborhood where residents can access restaurants, shops, and services on foot. 


There are several local eateries that allow dogs to join their owners in their outdoor seating areas. Dog-friendly restaurants in the area include Cafe Rio Mexican Grill, Violettas Vegan, and Lazeez Indian Mediterranean Grill. Pet owners will also find a unique pet store, Dog Supplies Outlet, to the northeast. 


West Sahara residents and their pups enjoy sunny, dry weather for walking in the area. Rain is sparse, some occurring during winter months and some during thunderstorms at the height of the summer. Summers are very hot and heat-related illnesses can be an issue if pets and people do not stay hydrated. Winters are mild with temperatures above freezing in the day, however, temperatures cool off rapidly at night.

The West Sahara neighborhood is bordered by West Sahara Avenue on the north,  Fort Apache Road on the west, Durango Drive on the east, and Desert Inn Road on the south. This is a planned residential community with a large artificial lake. Many of the housing areas in the neighborhood are gated and contain townhouses, condos, and single-family dwellings. 


The community is well landscaped and homes are beautifully maintained with a mix of desert and traditional plantings. The lake stretches through the community and has “fingers” extending into the residential areas which maximize the number of waterfront properties. Some areas have sidewalks and some do not, which can necessitate sharing the road with local traffic. 


The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to hike up in the district. The north side commercial sections have lots of traffic, so dog walkers need to be careful in these areas and ensure their dogs are under control.

The Desert Breeze Park is located on the south side of the West Sahara neighborhood. This is a 240-acre recreational greenway that is still under development. Current facilities include a skate park, soccer fields, a playground, baseball fields, picnic sites, and basketball courts, and the park hosts events at various times of the year. The greenway also features a dog park! The dog park is fenced and has separate areas for large and small dogs. There is seating for dog owners to use while supervising their pets, a water supply for cleaning up after a romp, and doggie waste bags available.

The Red Rock National Park is located a 20 minute drive to the west. This park features the Red Rock Canyon with 3,000 foot walls, red rock formations, and sandstone features. Hikers will need to be prepared for rough terrain and steep treks. Keep your dog leashed in this wilderness area as wildlife in the park can pose a hazard to pets.
