This is not a topic I would typically discuss, but being a 'Dog Dad' I feel it is very important for the welfare of both your pet as well as yourself. I live in one of the best cities for dogs – New York City. It is rated high on walkability. Other cities great for walkability are San Francisco and Chicago.
The best cities for welcoming dogs in restaurants are Tucson, Phoenix, and San Diego.
The one city best for housing that allows dogs is Sacramento. Albuquerque is also great for affordable housing.
The city that scored high in all areas – dog parks, walkability, dog friendly restaurants, housing and great all around weather – was Denver, Colorado.
