Where to rent in DFW if you have a dog

January 23, 2020 by Ted Bauer

Back in September 2019, we wrote about some of the best dog parks for apartment dogs. We’re going to return to that theme and try to bring some maps into it now too!


Dog parks near Dallas

Dog parks near Fort Worth

Dog parks near Frisco

Dog parks near Plano

Dog parks near Arlington

Dog parks near Irving

OK, that’s a bunch of cool maps. Now what?

Well, first you need to figure out what the best ones are. That is a mix of going to the parks and experiencing them for yourself -- yay getting out and doing stuff with the pup! -- and looking at reviews, like this one or this one.

The next thing you need to do is figure out your desired area relative to work and price point, then look at the maps above and see which dog parks are near to that area. 

You can also check out our Properties listings and do a sort by “dog walk park,” implying that the property itself has a dog run area. When you first click the link, it will default to a certain neighborhood; in the link above, for example, it’s North Fort Worth. But let’s say you want something in Central Plano. All you need to do is go to the right sidebar, change the neighborhood, and presto! Here are Central Plano apartments with dog runs. You more into downtown Dallas? Apartments there have dog runs as well!

Get a legal pad and look at the maps above. Zoom in on some of the dog parks and cross-reference those reviews. Most of these dog parks have a large breed section and a small dogs section, so you should be covered regardless of your boy’s (or girl’s) size.

If you find a dog park you really like and want proximity to it, here’s a life hack: on the embedded map above, type “luxury apartments” into the search bar, see what pops up, and then cross-reference with our Properties. If there’s something that’s a 2-minute drive from a dog park you’re really loving, give us a call and we’ll talk to you about their prices and current offers.

It’s all about woofing -- er, working -- together, ya know? #Puns
