Hoping to bring your dog along to your next winery trip? Su Vino is a great local pet-friendly option. You can enjoy your wine while your pup sips on bowls of dog water under a shaded patio. Located in downtown Scottsdale, it’s great for the urban pup that wants to come along with you.
One of the biggest and most-visited dog parks in Scottsdale is Chaparral Park. With over four acres for your pup to run around in, it offers various water fountains, play features and seating for you. Feel free to bring a chair too! Chaparral Park also offers two sections for dogs to play in — one for more passive dogs that might be easily scared.
Perfect for both the pups and your children, Gateway Trailhead is a great opportunity for hiking and education. Children can get a passport along the way and collect stamps, while dogs can trot alongside via leash. With plenty of parking and an easy hike, it’s a great option for the whole family.
