Raise the woof! August 26 is National Dog Day, also known as one of my favorite days of the year. Here’s a roundup of dog-friendly places in Frisco for you to bring your four-legged furry companion to celebrate.

Hotels 

Several of Frisco’s hotels have expanded their staycation rates to Texas residents. You and your dog can take advantage of these rates at the following pet-friendly hotels:

The new Canopy by Hilton offers Canopy-inspired canine arrival amenities. The hotel is located next to The Star and just minutes from endless shopping, dining, sports and entertainment at Stonebriar Centre, Dr Pepper Ballpark, Toyota Stadium and Frisco Square. A $50 pet fee applies.

Front desk staff at the Residence Inn greet you and your pet with as many dog biscuits as your four-legged travel companion can handle! During downtime, settle into your studio, one- or two-bedroom suite and enjoy your full kitchen, complimentary Wi-Fi and plush bedding. A $150 pet fee applies.

Other pet-friendly hotels include the Omni Frisco Hotel, Embassy Suites, Sheraton Stonebriar HotelHotel Indigo and the Westin Stonebriar Resort (reopening October 2020). Varying pet fees apply.

Restaurant Patios

There’s nothing I love more than sitting on the patio with my favorite drink and my two dogs, Kiki and Lily. Here are some Frisco restaurant patios you can bring your dog to.

At The Common Table, your dog can sip on cold water available on the patio while you have an ice cold craft beer and appetizers during happy hour.

At the Frisco Rail Yard, you and your pooch can enjoy live music, games and food trucks in the heart of Frisco's Rail District.

Other restaurants that are happy to welcome your pet on the patio include Tender SmokehouseCity WorksKelly’s Craft TavernMash’dMi Cocina, NerdvanaSummer Moon CoffeeTruFire Kitchen & Bar and Wahlburgers.

In March 2019, Texas Senate Bill 476 was passed, permitting food service establishments to use their own discretion on whether to allow or deny canine companions. We recommend calling restaurants ahead of time to ensure your dog is allowed to join you on the patio.

Frisco Dog Park

Is your dog a social butterfly? Frisco’s Ruff Range Dog Park features two off-leash areas (one for small dogs less than 35 pounds and one for large dogs 35 pounds and up) with pavilions, water stations, seating and dog washing stations. Don't forget to snap a picture of your pooch at the #iHeartFrisco heart or public art piece "Surf Dog" and tag @visitfriscotx and @playfrisco on Instagram! FYI, Ruff Range is closed Thursdays for regular maintenance.

Walking Trails

If socially-distanced walking trails are more your speed, bring your dog to any of Frisco’s walking trails. Kiki and Lily’s favorites include Frisco Commons Park, which offers shaded trails and fields to explore, Beaver’s Bend Trail which also has large fields off the path, and Caddo Trail. Make sure you bring plenty of water for yourself and your furry friends. If you forget waste bags, most trails have bags and trash cans available. Please remember to maintain a distance of at least 6' from others at Frisco's walking trails.
