Pet-friendliness has a backdrop of prairie grass, golden plains, and rolling foothills in the pawesome city of Collinsville, Oklahoma! The city is split between the outskirts of Collinsville, which are farmlands, and more rural areas with around 3 square miles devoted to residential living spaces within the developed city limits. This makes Collinsville a true "tail of two cities"! The city was settled in the late 1800s by pioneers who followed the Santa Fe Railroad. Natural gas was found in the area, and soon, the city felt a boom in population that has continued to grow over the years, both with two- and four-footed residents!
Dog owners love living in the prairie lands of Collinsville! Within less than a 5-minute drive, you'll find 3 veterinarians, 4 pet groomers, and a pet shop. On top of these amenities, Fido has plenty of options for fun day outings to keep his tail wagging! There are two trail systems to choose from in Collinsville. You can walk by the Caney River by the Collinsville Lake Trails, or check out the tall grasslands by walking through the Osage Prairie Trail. There are also two city parks to play in right in the heart of the city! Fido can even hang out with you for a meal, as there are myriad choices in pet-friendly restaurants that allow the doggos to join you for dinner in the outside seating areas! Collinsville’s a city fit for "appaws"!
