Lewisville is a bustling and thriving urban center just northwest of Dallas. Resident pets are in good hands here, as the city boasts 11 veterinarians and animal hospitals, so pets in need can always find the help they deserve. Start your Lewisville adventure with a trip to Twin Peaks Restaurant, where an outdoor, dog-friendly table and speciality Billionaire’s Bacon Burger are the perfect match.
If you’re looking for a long walk to calm down an excitable dog, try the Bittern Marsh Trail in Lewisville Lake Park. This path offers great views and a flat, easy walk on a looped path about two miles long. You could also try the Elm Fork of the Trinity River Trail. This long trail has great views, but doesn’t loop, so you may want to arrange pickup at the other end.
Dogs looking for a warm hotel room at the end of a long day are spoiled for choice in Lewisville! The Motel 6 Lewisville has no pet fees, but if you’re willing to pay a little more for your best friend, you can have your pick of the litter in Lewisville hotels! Country Inn & Suites Lewisville, Comfort Suites Lewisville, Residence Inn by Marriott Dallas Lewisville, and more offer pet-friendly rooms and great perks!
If you’re visiting the residential neighborhood of Castle Hills, make room for supper at PIE 314. This cute reference to mathematical Pi serves up pizza pies in a variety of gourmet options.

Best of all, they have an extensive outdoor dining area that welcomes dogs. While you sip your beer or wine, your dog can enjoy a bowl of water by your side. If you slip him a bite or two under the table, we won’t tell.
Tierney’s Cafe and Tavern is a must when you visit Central Lewisville. This restaurant is just steps away from East Main Street and all there is to see and do in the bustling heart of Lewisville. Tierney’s Cafe and Tavern welcomes dogs to their patio every day, allowing your best friend to rest by your side while you sample classic burgers and entrees as diverse as Thai Ribs and Monte Carlo Strip Steak. If you’re lucky enough to be passing through on the last Sunday of every month, treat your dog to some social time as well, as Tierney’s hosts a Yappy Hour!
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop probably isn’t named for the fact that they welcome dogs to outdoor tables, but it certainly adds to the atmosphere! This restaurant is the place to go if you want classic Mexican food. Tamales, burritos, and of course tacos fill the menu. If you’re craving some good old Texas BBQ instead, head just down the road to Big Jack’s BBQ. From sandwiches to classic meals and sides, Big Jack’s BBQ has it all. Your dog can join you at an outdoor table while you try a variety of smoked, sauced, and BBQ’d meats and sides in Texas-sized portions!
The Lewisville Railway Dog Park is a dream come true for energetic pups. There are separate areas for dogs 30lbs and under, and those 31lbs and above, so everyone gets playmates they’re comfortable with. The parks are large and have benches and limited shade, as well as drinking fountains. The park is also illuminated at night and open late, so take your dog after sunset on days when the temperature gets dangerous. If you’ve worked up an appetite, take your dog to Ojeda’s Mexican. There are outdoor, dog friendly tables a whole mess of Tex-Mex classics at this business that’s been around since 1969!
Lake Park in North Lewisville is a great place to go to get away from it all. The park is large and set away from roads, allowing you to forget the hustle and bustle and enjoy nature. The park is largely undeveloped, making it the perfect place to walk your leashed dog! There are beach areas, where a sandy/pebble beach combine to give you access to Lewisville Lake. You’re going to want to bring your own water while you’re exploring, as walking the paths may take you far away from the drinking fountains in the area. A dog bowl for your pup will also be useful!
