Phoenix is the capital and most populous city of Arizona. It has the hottest climate of any major city in America, so it is a good place for northerners to escape with their dogs during the wintertime! This city has many community-mind and organized dog parks, that almost all have separate entrances for dogs, depending on their sizes. Dog parks in Phoenix are generally open from about 6:30 AM-10:00 PM daily. Even though parks are generally fenced-in, watch out for cacti and dangerous wildlife!
