The town of Kingwood is a great spot for a dog-friendly vacation, or a permanent residence. There are eight local veterinarians and animal hospitals to make sure every pup is in great health! Dogs here never have it ruff. Start your time in Kingswood with a trip to Pampered Paws Boutique, a high end store for all things dog, from treats to bling-heavy collars!
Doggie dining is a staple in Kingwood. Try Jason’s Deli for a quick bite. There’s no table service, so bring a friend to hold your pup while you go in to order. If you have the company, this place can’t be beat--authentic Tex-Mex and a variety of foods for carnivores and vegetarians alike! If you want something different, Carrabba’s Italian Grill is a local favorite. Enjoy small plates up to pizzas and more at their outdoor tables, and bring your pup to join you for lunch!
If you’re looking for a place to stay in Kingwood with no pet fee, look no further than the La Quinta Inn & Suites Kingwood. This hotel lets big dogs (and even multiple dogs!) stay with you in your room. Get a good night’s rest and wake up ready to sniff out more great things in Kingwood!
You can’t pass through Kingwood’s Town Center without passing by Kingwood Town Center Park. This park is a great place to go walk your dog without getting away from the heart of Kingwood. With tree-lined paths, and its small, walkable size, the park is perfect for a walk in the city. Leashed dogs are welcome in the park, but maintain your courtesy. If there’s an event like a farmer’s market, steer clear of marked areas where food is being served. The rest of the time, you and your pup can picnic on the grass, or just walk laps until you are ready to call it a day!
East End Park located in this Kingwood neighborhood is an amazing resource for dog owners. The park itself is huge and beautiful, and popular with everyone who likes to exercise outdoors. You’ll have to share the trail with joggers and cyclists, as well as other leashed dogs, but it’s definitely worth it. There are amazing views of the sunsets, and the paths lead you down by the water. Treat this park like a mini wilderness experience (with clear walking trails) rather than a city park, and bring your own water, bowl, snacks, and mosquito repellant just to be on the safe side.
Rustling Elms Park in Northpark Place, aside from having a whimsical name, is the perfect package for a full family day at the park. In a less populated part of Kingwood, this park is usually not overcrowded. There is a small playground and sports area for children, as well as a gazebo, and plenty of covered benches for sitting, reclining, and relaxing in your area. Bring the whole family out for a picnic! Dogs will love rolling in the grass and walking the looped paths in Rustling Elms Park, and humans will love it too. There are drinking fountains available, but bring a dog bowl!
Kingwood Greenbelts is the place to go if your dog needs a long walk during the day, or she just won’t sleep at night. This large park has been left mostly natural, making it a great place for you and your dog to go to get away from it all. Walk the charming paths and forget about the bustle of Kingwood for an hour or so. This park is fairly flat, so the only real challenge will be how far you want to go! Bring your own water and a bowl to share it, as this natural space doesn’t have drinking fountains for you to sip from along the way!
