Tucson is Ranked One of the Top U.S. Dog Friendly Cities

Dog Parks

We Love Tucson Dog Friendly Neighborhoods

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of owning a dog, you’d know that dogs have a powerful, if not magical, effect on humans. They decrease stress and blood pressure levels and can help people overcome feelings of loneliness and depression and so much more. Having a fido friend can drastically improve a person’s quality of life and I know this first hand.

The Huffington Post published an article about the analysis of data collected from a financial consulting company SmartAsset to rank the most wag-worthy cities across the map. The study considered both dog and human-friendly factors. A city’s dog accessibility as in the number of dog parks, dog-friendly shopping areas and dog-friendly restaurants was one and the other was based on the city’s quality of life, which took walk-ability, weather and housing costs into consideration (happy pets need happy owners).

  1. San Francisco
  2. Las Vegas
  3. Denver
  4. San Diego
  5. Albuquerque
  6. Sacramento
  7. Chicago
  8. Minneapolis
  9. Tucson
  10. New York City

I’d have to agree that Tucson has a lot of dog-friendly parks, beautiful Tucson dog-friendly walk and bike paths, lots of open properties with acreage for a dog to roam if that’s your style but also many of the homes backyards. There are dog-friendly bars and restaurants and even hiking trails. Tucson loves doggies.

In line with the other ranking, I can attest to that fact that the quality of life in Tucson is also high for humans. Tucson is one of the most affordable places to live, one of the most kid-friendly cities for children, and also a foodies paradise.

If you have any questions about Tucson, relocating, housing please don’t hesitate to call me. I’d be more than happy to speak with you to see if Tucson is right for you and find you your dream home.
