6 Sensational Dog-Friendly Destinations In Arizona

Often when we think of the great state of Arizona, we might picture the amazing Grand Canyon, which runs through this arid, yet beautiful landscape.

Destinations to Travel With Your Pet Dogs Also well known for the desert climate that exists here, some pet owners might not know that dogs are welcome inside this National Park with a couple of notable exceptions:
  1. They must remain on leash at all times
  2. They're only permitted on the trails above the rim
There's a kennel available near the south rim to temporarily house your dog while you go on your adventures through the breathtaking sights of the Grand Canyon and the surrounding areas. Speaking of surrounding locations, unless your animal suffers from Canine Vestibular Apparatus (the fancy medical term for doggie motion sickness), there's plenty of great destinations and excellent vacation opportunities to discover in Arizona for you and your pet. Here's six sensational sites that you can enjoy with your four-legged best friend in this sunny state:

1. Slide Rock Park, Sedona

This area is part of the Arizona State park system and offers some amazing views and venues similar to that of its grand, national cousin. Similar to the canyon's restrictions, dogs must be leashed and aren't welcome near the slippery rocks (where the park gets its name), but they're still able to traverse all the other areas inside this breathtaking rec area.

2. Echo Mountain, Phoenix

While our first popular location has leash restrictions in place, but at Echo Mountain, part of the City of Phoenix recreational park system, dogs are able to run free inside this arena. There's fenced areas available that separate the bigger dogs from the smaller ones, plenty of shade trees and benches here for humans and their canine companions to enjoy the Phoenix summer sunshine.

3. PetSmart Dog Park at Washington Park, Flagstaff

Obviously sponsored by this animal-friendly chain of pet stores, their dog park is not only handicap accessible, it is also home to separate areas for big and small dogs to enjoy their own space inside fenced arenas that cover over two-and-a-half acres of grassy-covered landscape.

4. Thorpe Park Bark Park, Flagstaff

A reviewer at gave this spot a "five woof" rating for this off-leash venue for our four-legged friends to frolic. Similar to the PetSmart facility, this venue offers separate, fenced locations for larger and smaller mutt to mingle.

5. Rillito River Park Trail, Tucson

This is a great place to take your dog for a daily walk on a well-maintained trail that's lined with trees and has a number of watering spots to stop for a cool drink. Bring your leash and a dish for your dog to drink from while meandering down this path.

6. Camelback Mountain, Phoenix

If hiking is your game, Camelback Mountain is the destination for you and your dog to take a more challenging stroll. In the center of Phoenix, you and your leashed pet are welcome to enjoy the great outdoors here in this beautiful atmosphere. If you live in Arizona or are thinking of visiting this sun-drenched state, be sure to bring along your best friend and visit some of these popular and stunning destinations. Your dog will thank you and both of you can get some exercise while enjoying a warm day outside.

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
