Hello friends, Winston here! The summer weather seems to be here to stay, so I’m making some plans to visit a few of my favorite dog-friendly spots here around DFW. I sure do love to get out of the house every once in a while and enjoy the great outdoors. Here are a few of the dog parks and places I’m planning to visit this summer!
Mutts Cantina is a new Dallas restaurant-dog park hybrid that brings together good food, craft beer and plenty of space for your furry friends. With low fees, a supervised dog park and treats for the animals as well as the humans (think gourmet hot dogs for man and mutt alike), Mutts Cantina sure is a great way to enjoy the city with your best pal.
Fort Woof On the other side of the Metroplex, Fort Worth’s Fort Woof dog park is fun and fancy-free. No really—admission is totally free! Located just east of downtown, Fort Woof has tons of room for bouncy, furry friends to play all day. You can bring water for yourself and your fluffy friend, but all other food and drinks must stay at home. Let’s go!
Katy Trail Ice House This beer garden in the heart of Uptown is hopping—and running and playing and barking! Dogs are welcome on the patio, and they have all kinds of yummy goodies and super cold drinks for you human types. Katy Trail Ice House is a busy place, so I just know I’m going to make some new friends here this summer. One bowl of water on the rocks, please!
The LOT is one of my favorite parts of East Dallas. The LOT is just a few paw-steps away from White Rock Lake, and they have a huge patio for people and their dogs to conduct their weekend business of eating, drinking, laughing and relaxing. The food and drinks are local, the pups are friendly and they stay open really late on the weekends. Looks like I have a new place to rest my paws this Saturday night!
Trinity Groves As a Dallas dog, I sure do love a dog-friendly establishment. So when a whole group of places decides to let the dogs in, that’s just peanut butter on my nose! The super-cool new stretch of restaurants known as Trinity Groves is located just west of downtown Dallas and touts a whole bunch of pup-friendly patios. I love looking at the twinkling lights and catching a little dog nap while my people dine on dishes I can’t pronounce.
The Foundry If only my backyard were just like the patio at The Foundry. Between the tables and the lights and the smells and the music, it’s a cool dog’s paradise. I meet new friends here all the time; I just hope one of them saves me a biscuit one of these days. If your furry friend is a little shy, The Foundry might be a little overwhelming, but only during peak hours.
Paws & Kisses,
