Choosing to be a dog owner when you live in an apartment means you have a lot of things to consider! Your list of “must-haves” for an apartment may be much different than someone who doesn’t own a pupper. Depending on the size of your pooch, you might need to look at apartment communities with a very lenient pet policy. And who likes walking down three flights of stairs just to take your dog outside at 11 p.m.? Nobody! So a first floor unit might be what you’re looking for.
But as dog owners have become more vocal, apartments in Dallas are doing a great job of paying attention. There are things like on-site dog parks, dog wash stations, even units that have private yards to eliminate any extra work on your part. That’s pretty cool! With these conveniences, it’s become much easier to have a dog while living in an apartment. Truthfully, dogs now can live in the big city and have an exceptional life. Whether you own a small corgi or a large labrador retriever, there’s an apartment in Dallas that has everything you need. These are some of the best pet friendly apartments in Dallas.
If you are a fan of big dogs that love to run, like Labrador Retrievers, Boxers, Huskies, Cattle dogs…you might be concerned about their lack of space in a traditional apartment. If your dog can eat off your kitchen counter without getting on two legs, yeah, an apartment life might seem kind of inconvenient! This community breaks all your previous conceptions about having bigger dogs in an apartment. Kontour at Kessler Park sits on TEN acres of land. They have a huge wooded dog park with space to really run for your pooch! You’ll feel like the best dog parent ever, giving them the freedom they love. Even better? Many of these units come with fenced-in yards. It’s the perfect haven for pet lovers in Dallas.
Some dogs like to run, some dogs like to swim. If the annual “pooch swim” at your local pool isn’t enough for your pet, Ilume Park might be the perfect apartment for you. They actually have a bone shaped pool just for dogs. Did we also mention that it is complete with a fire hydrant sprayer? If your dog doesn’t worship the ground you walk on already, they will once you move in here. These apartment units also have private yards available, as well as not just one, but two enclosed dog parks. You can have all the pet bonding you want without ever having to leave home (which means, your car will have a lot less slobber and dog hair won’t be your regular work accessory)! After your pup gets out of the pool? Give them a quick wash at the on site pet salon. It’s doggie paradise.
We love the Crest at Oak Park community. It’s perfectly situated in between Love Field and the Dallas North Tollway (what a great location, especially if you are a frequent flyer!). The property is simply stunning with lots of wide open spaces. If traveling to stroll around Bachmann Lake seems like a bit too much work, you’re in luck. Crest at Oak Park prides themselves on being pet friendly and they’ve made it a joy to be a pet owner! There is a huge private park on site, and many of the apartments have private yards. Your pet can have all the outdoor time they desire!
This apartment community has a super lenient pet policy (here’s looking at you, NO weight limit!) We love that they’re located on Singleton Boulevard in Dallas, which means you have direct access to the miles of trails in the Trinity floodway just under the shadow of the Dallas skyline. Even if your dog has endless endurance, you won’t run out of places to go. This location is perfect if you love to drink and dine with your pet, because you’re close to the Trinity Groves area with pet-friendly patios for those cool nights and weekends. Gotta have a yard? They’re available too! And there’s a dog wash for convenience, in case you get a little muddy with all your adventures on the trails.
