Our Dallas dog moms know how to have a good time… and that is including their fur babies! If you live in Dallas or are planning a trip to Dallas, we have the top 5 places that you and your fur baby need to visit ASAP!
Located in Uptown Dallas, this dog park is one that the humans do not want to miss out on! If you have ever dreamed of taking your fur baby out for drinks, this is the place to make those dreams come true. Mutt’s Canine Cantina is a dog-friendly restaurant and off-leash dog park all in one! I use the word restaurant loosely though. They have several things to choose from for humans and dogs, but it is not a full-blown menu like you would find at some of these other places. Enjoy a margarita or local draft beer while your fur baby makes some new furiends! This is a very laid-back environment to crack a cold one and chill on the patio while your pooch plays. Follow them on social media to see what events they have coming up! You’ll find some great shops that set up shop to sell doggy and dog mom goodies!
As the name states, this stop is in the heart of Deep Ellum. Deep Ellum is a neighborhood that has been regentrified and is considered a very “hip” place to hang out. This is the place you want to go if you are the ultimate beer lover. The founder of Deep Ellum Brewery Co. had enough of big-name companies watering down their beers. They were tired of bad beer and opened up shop to make fellow beer lovers happy again. But guess what? If you are not a beer lover, don’t worry! This is still a fun place to hang out and watch local bands and artists play music! Bring your dogs for a good time and be sure to take Fido’s photo next to the B and G and tag the Big D to connect with other dog parents! Deep Ellum Brewery Co also has food trucks show up to offer food to those who are hungry. Maybe sneak a little for your fur babe too!
Katy Trail Ice House a fan favorite! This gem is smack dab in the heart of Dallas. South of Oak Lawn, East of Design District, and North of downtown, you will find that lots of people come together at Katy Trail Ice House to have a good time with their family, friends, and fur kids. Katy Trail Ice House has a full restaurant menu with burgers, barbeque, salads, appetizers, breakfast tacos, chicken plates, and the list goes on and on! Katy Trail Ice House also has a plethora of drinks to choose from. They offer Texas draft beers, imported beers, cocktails, margaritas, spirits… Whatever you want, they will probably have what it takes to make it! Their outdoor area is rather large and you will always see other dogs and dog parents having a good time! This is an Instagram-worthy stop! So, make sure to have Katy Trail Ice House on your must-have places to stop when you visit!
There is so much offered right in the middle of the city of Dallas, all thanks to Klyde Warren Park! This amazing park is located off Woodall Rodgers Freeway for easy and quick access! They have playgrounds for children, dining options, indoor and outdoor games that all occur outside, a nice dog park, food trucks, croquet, putting greens, and even live music on Thursdays! If it gets too hot, grab a seat under the many trees! You’ll find some really great dog parent friends at this park and there are definitely Instagram moments to be made right in the middle of the city.
5. Cane Rosso
Where are our pizza lovers?! If you want true Italian pizza, this is the place for you! Cane Rosso offers three locations in Dallas; Deep Ellum, White Rock, and Downtown. Cane Rosso has received numerous awards from The Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Observer, and Eater Dallas. What is even more impressive is that they are listed among Eater National’s 38 Essential Pizzerias in America and The Daily Meal’s 101 Best Pizza Places in America! Are you a brunch lover also? You will die and go to heaven when you taste their brunch menu items! Do not forget to try their brunch cocktails… YUMMY! What is better than pizza and brunch? Eating pizza and going to brunch with your beloved fur baby, duh! Their outdoor patios are beautiful and your pup will be served an ice-cold bowl of water upon arrival.
