Planning a big trip to Mesa, Arizona, but don't want to leave your old pooch behind? No worries, the people in Mesa love dogs and dogs love the people of Mesa. There are a tonne of dog-friendly restaurants, hotels, attractions, dog parks, bars and services for you and your furry friend to enjoy.
Quail Run Dog Park
Quail Run Dog Park is the highest-rated and most popular dog park in Mesa. This dog park is so popular because it has separate areas fenced-off depending on your dog’s energy level and personality. So if your dog is timid, there is an area for timid dogs, but if your dog has quite an active personality and likes to socialize, there is a section for them too.
The park also comes with benches for tired owners and water fountains for both people and pups. Quail Run opens at 10am and admission is free. It is closed on Thursdays for maintenance.
Club Doggie Dog Agility Gym
The Club Doggie Dog Agility Gym is a great place to train your pup in agility sports. For either a one-time fee or a month-to-month membership, you can take your fur ball to check out the 5,000 square feet of equipment and tracks, all in a climate controlled environment.
There are quite a few restaurants in Mesa that are pet friendly, however the top rated is Lucky Lou's. It is considered the best in town not just because of its pet friendly policy, but also because it is home to the best burgers and ribs around.
The staff will bring your dog a fresh bowl of water and a treat, but whether you hand your pooch a little something under the table – that is up to you. It is a great place for man and man's best friend to kick back and enjoy a drink.
