The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Dallas

Bent Tree

Bent Tree in Far North Dallas is one of the area's most lucrative neighborhoods, centered around a sprawling golf course and characterized by stately homes lining immaculate streets.聽

After taking a stroll through this quaint neighborhood, your pup will be begging for some playtime at Wagging Tail Dog Park, one of the city's biggest off-leash areas at just shy of 7 acres. All the necessities are available here聽 and then some! In addition to the standard water bowls and waste stations, this park provides picnic areas and a wildlife-watching platform. "Pawse" to admire stunning vistas of a waterfall cascading into White Rock Creek from the overlook.聽

Venture a little further north to find NorthBark Dog Park. This 22-acre expanse comes complete with its very own dog beach so your buddy can beat the Texas heat and make a splash with some new canine companions.

Deep Ellum

Located a bone's throw from Downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum is bound to be a hit with hounds and humans seeking a thriving nightlife scene. When the sun goes down, live music and neon lights bring this trendy district to life.


Spot will be tugging on the leash en route to BarkPark Central, one of the most "pawpular" spots with pet parents and dog walkers in Dallas. This small park comes equipped with everything you'll need for a fun day out: drinking water, waste baggies, and even a rinse-off area in case your buddy gets muddy. The colorful canine art and views of the cityscape make the perfect selfie opportunity.聽

After you've played until you can play no more, leash up and walk down Elm Street and Commerce Street to find a patio table at one of the area's many dog-friendly eateries.

Downtown

No trip to the "Big D" is complete without exploring the heart of the city. Marveling up at the sleek skyscrapers looming over lush urban oases as you amble along the streets makes for an entertaining walk all by itself.

Klyde Warren Park is a hub of activity, hosting all manner of events from live concerts to fitness classes. The highlight is, of course, the on-site dog park, My Best Friend's Park! (And also the food trucks.)

The colorful murals, children's play area, and dog park at Main Street Garden make it a "furrific" outing for the whole family.聽

Hound-dog history buffs will have a blast at Dallas Heritage Village, a 20-acre living history museum. Though doggos aren't allowed inside the preserved Victorian buildings, they're welcome to wander the grounds with you on-leash.聽

This just scratches the surface of dog-friendly adventures on offer in Downtown. If you're planning to visit the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza to learn about JFK's legacy and assassination, book a dog walker in Dallas as only service dogs are allowed inside.

Bluffview

With well-lit streets and maintained sidewalks, this community is also an excellent spot for Fido to kick up a leg on late-night or morning walks.聽

Nearby Bachman Lake is the perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely picnic with your furry friend. For a little activity, take a "pawesome" run or leisurely stroll along the聽Bachman Lake Trail. Enjoy a spot of people- and dog-watching while taking in the wildlife and scenic vistas alongside your canine compadre.

For pups looking to stretch their legs a little further, the southern end of the trail leads to the White Rock Lake Dog Park.聽Featuring separate areas for large and small dogs, waste baggies, drinking water, a dog wash area, and benches for the pet parents, White Rock Lake Dog Park is a firm favorite with dog walkers in Dallas. When your Terrier is all tuckered out, leash up and wander around the city's largest lake.

The most popular dog names of 2023 in Texas

Guest Author:聽Amber Spencer-Knowles聽鈥 Stacker Media

You've done everything on your checklist. Got pet insurance and found a great, affordable veterinarian. Didn't forget to puppy-proof the house and scanned high and low for the best quality dog food. Just one thing's missing: What will you name your new furry family member?

In the past century, man's best friend has had various popular names. Spike, Fido, and Buddy are classic names. But what if you're looking for something more unique? Or, you want to give them a classic name, like Charlie? Whatever you choose to call your puppy pal, you want to make sure it's just right.

What's in a name, you might ask? Sometimes, what you see is what you get. Other times, it's quite the complete opposite. According to the PetHelpful, the ideal dog name should be kept to one to two syllables. Why? You'll get your puppy's attention faster. Another helpful tip: give your furry friend a name you won't get tired of repeating.
