Take Your Dog On A Date
Everyone knows that dogs love nothing more than going with their people somewhere. Anywhere, really. They live to be with their humans, running errands, on an adventure or just driving around.
They’re easy to please.
And Flagstaff, being the dog-loving mountain town that it is, is a place that recognizes that connection, as does Pine Canyon. Our community is a place where owners are often seen with a leash in hand, strolling our neighborhoods or walking along the golf course before or after hours of play.
Dogs are just part of the family here. And lucky for us, there are so many ways to get out and experience Flagstaff without leaving them behind.
Hike with them
Fisher Point Trail is said to be a trail that is overrun with scents dogs would appreciate. It has a field for playing and, with varying distances, it allows you to choose a long or short hike. As an added bonus, Fisher Point Trail has several starting points, including one off of J.W. Powell Blvd.
Fat Man’s Loop and Red Mountain Trail are also recommended routes for hikers with dogs.
Grab a beer with them
After that hike, Flagstaff has a number of places suitable for you to grab a pint with your four-legged pal while enjoying patio sipping. Try Mother Road Brewery, Hops on Birch or Historic Barrel + Bottle House. All three offer a diverse selection of beers and make room for your dog on their patios.
Play with them
Thorpe Dog Park, set among the pines, is a spot that is noted for its friendly dogs and humans, which is never a bad thing. The quaint park even includes obstacles for the dogs to try. And, it’s open year-round.
Dine with them
Flagstaff features a host of dog-friendly patios, but the best offer good food, too. The Toasted Owl is a friendly stop, as is Macy’s European Coffeehouse and Bakery. Tourist Home All Day Café is loved for its delicious breakfast items, friendly counter service, and the space it makes on the Annex patio for your favorite four-legged friend.
