Dog Park Locations in New Mexico

With summer comes the desire to play outside with your pooch. New Mexico has a large variety of dog parks where you can let your dog run off-leash in a safe environment. When you and your dog visit the dog park, follow the rules of the park, watch your dog so there are no altercations with other dogs, bring water with you if the park doesn't provide water and enjoy yourselves. Remember summer in New Mexico is hot so be sure your dog doesn't get over-heated at the park or stressed by playing with the other dogs. Use common sense about when it is time to take a time out in the shade or go home. Try some of the parks on this list and have fun spending time with your best friend.
