Rowlett, a close-knit suburb located just 20 minutes northeast of Dallas, was named one of the ‘Best Places to Live’ by Money Magazine, and was ranked one of the safest places to live in Texas. Known for its lakeside living, affordable housing and outdoor recreation along its 30 miles of shoreline, Rowlett offers 8 veterinarian clinics for peace of mind and plenty of activities to keep humans and dogs happily entertained.

Visit Herfurth Park for a stroll with your pup along its paved paths. The park also offers inline skating, tennis courts, and picnic areas where restrooms and water are available.  For some off-leash fun, visit Herfurth’s new dog park, opening in March 2018. This 1 ½ acre dog park is complete with two separate areas for large and small pups.

Hungry?  Visit some of Rowlett’s dog-friendly restaurants. Build your own pizza at Palio’s Pizza Café, or enjoy a taco at Alejandro’s Grill & Cantina where your pup is always welcome on their outside patios.  And as evidence of the city’s love of dogs, their soon-to-be-adopted pets get to visit the city offices for some one-on-one socializing, and city council meetings feature a fur-ever friend to adopt – now that’s doggy dedication!
