If you’ve just moved to Las Vegas, Nevada or passing through with your best friend don’t forget to check out some of the casinos and places to eat. But, more importantly, don’t forget to let your dog burn off some energy. Spending a few hours in a crate or in the hotel room can mean that your pup might be bored or nap while you’re out. Take her for a walk, jog, and give her some TLC. If she’s itching to romp, there are several dog parks in Las Vegas where she can run around and make some new friends. Always bring a bag to clean up after her and make sure she has all her ID tags on her collar.

In other parts of the park, your dog must be on leash. They ask that you don’t allow your dog to dig holes and to clean up after you dog. It’s not a huge dog run but it’s a well-maintained run and there are plenty of friendly dogs that call this run their second home.
All American Dog Park is at 121 East Sunset Road in Las Vegas and is located inside of a 45 acre community park that you can hike around with your pup before or after a game of fetch and frisbee in the dog run. The dog run is fenced in so your pup can run off leash. They ask that your dog be sociable, up to date on vaccines, and under control of the owner at all times. This helps to avoid tension between dogs, jumping up or bugging other owners, and helps keep everything peaceful. When your dog is not in the dog run, please keep her on leash. There are a few grills, picnic tables, and huge grass fields where you can spend an afternoon hanging out and relaxing. Don’t forget to bring a snack and some water for your pup so she isn’t starving and thirsty after making new friends in the dog park.
