Pet Friendly Neighborhoods and Apartments in Dallas!

It’s no secret we here at Smart City have a strong affinity for all things furry and adorable (just look at our Instagram if you don’t believe us: @SmartCityApts). We understand that unbreakable bond between man and dog and know just how important it is to find the perfect home for both you and Fido!

With all this puppy lovin’, it’s no wonder apartment developers throughout Dallas are making dog parks, splash pools and even paved walking trails essential amenities for tenants and their pets. Yep! You heard right. Apartment complexes everywhere are finally hopping on the pet-accommodating train and offering services that include in-house grooming stations and even personalized dog sitting! Talk about some serious pet perks. Because let’s be honest, isn’t it about time your fur-baby enjoyed the plush life?

Smart City is proud to bring you our own super sweet list of some of the city’s most pet-friendly and accommodating neighborhoods; taking into consideration proximity to local dog parks, outdoor trails, pet-friendly bars and restaurants, and of course, the most badass dog-loving apartments!

Oak Lawn – Located less than a mile from Uptown, Oak Lawn offers some of the best pet perks in the Dallas area, especially for the price. Delicious restaurants such as Café Brazil and Cyclone Anaya’s boast large outdoor patios for you and your adorable fur-baby to both enjoy. There are also several brand new apartment complexes nestled within this budding neighborhood that offer top-rated dog parks and dog splash pools. You know, for when Fido needs some serious R&R after that long dog walk through the tree-paved neighborhood!

Uptown – This coveted neighborhood is the essence of Dallas. And as this area only continues to flourish in size and popularity, many restaurants and bars are hopping on board the pet-friendly train. If it’s a gorgeous outdoor patio you seek with your pup, head over to Mutts Cantina, Dallas’ first public dog park AND bar combined! Or after a long walk on the Katy Trail, stop in to the Katy Trail Ice House for a cold beer and award winning BBQ. And don’t forget about the sweet Uptown apartments and townhomes throughout the neighborhood that offer some of Dallas’ best pet amenities like personal pet walking and grooming.

Downtown – Many pet-loving Dallasites tend to overlook the gorgeous and historic Downtown neighborhood simply because they don’t know of all the awesome pet-friendly bars, restaurants and parks Downtown Dallas has to offer! Klyde Warren Park, a 5.2-acre public park, has its own spacious dog park for everyone to enjoy. Several apartment complexes within Downtown even have their own rooftop dog park for residents and furry friends to enjoy! Head on over to the pet-friendly food truck park with your pup to also indulge in some of Dallas’ most sought-after cuisine on wheels.

Lakewood – Last but certainly not least in the ranking is the gorgeous and buzzing neighborhood of Lakewood. Located in East Dallas, Lakewood’s luscious green parks and trails make this neighborhood one of the most sought after for pet owners everywhere. Take a scenic jog with your pooch on the Santa Fe Trail or venture over to the super popular White Rock Lake for some of the best outdoor fun Dallas has to offer. Within this growing community are brand new apartment complexes boasting spacious dog parks and runs for their residents and their pups of all sizes. There’s nothing like a little outdoor living to really bring you and your pooch closer together.
