Have you ever been out having fun with family or friends, when all of a sudden you’re hit with the guilt that while you’re out having a good time, your dog is home alone waiting for you? Every dog parent has been there, even wished that they could bring their furry best friend along. Since Las Vegas has been named as a top pet-friendly city, now more than ever that is becoming possible. So instead of leaving my Holly girl behind, here are some of my favorite dog-friendly spots to visit in the valley.
Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar
Enjoy having a bite with friends or share a few drinks with Fido in tow at Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar on their dog-friendly porch. Your dog will even receive a complimentary bowl of water, and you can choose something off the menu just for them. Just be sure to keep them on a leash and no begging, barking or biting. Also, if you’re at the Town Square location, your dog is welcome to join you on a leash throughout the area, including the lawn near the gazebo.
Red Rock Canyon
Red Rock Canyon is one of my favorite spots in Southern Nevada, one of the wonderful reasons why is that my dog, Holly and I are at our best when we’re getting out and getting active. Fresh air, outdoors and getting to see Holly truly light up at her happiest when we hit the trails only makes it that much sweeter. Even if your dog isn’t one for longer hikes, a scenic drive with the windows down is sure to get their tail wagging.
The District at Green Valley Ranch
Take a stroll through The District in Henderson with your furry best friend. Stop at the many dog-friendly porches or kick back by the splash pad and enjoy something delicious from Me Gusta Tacos. Your options are endless, but completely reliant on the weather.
An amazing combination of two of my favorite things, dogs and beer. This summer, Las Vegas gets its first dog-friendly indoor bar and so much more. I’m so excited for this long overdue gem to hit the valley and to be able to head to the bar and be social, all without leaving my girl behind. Not to mention she can make a few more puppy playmates of her own in the play park or doggy daycare. Bring on the summer!
I’m always looking for new places to explore with Holly, do you know of any other places we should visit?
