I am a dog lover. When I moved to Las Vegas in 1997 I thought I had died and gone to doggy heaven. I could not believe all the fantastic off-leash parks in my wonderful new home town. Simply put, Las Vegas Dog Parks are the bomb. A dream come true for Sin City dog lovers.
Most of these dog-friendly grassy paradises are divided into sections for different sizes of dogs. Bruiser, the giant Mastiff does not get a chance to trample Princess, the diminutive Miniature Poodle. The dogs can run free, chase balls and Frisbees, and playfully wrestle with each other. Dogs, and owners alike, love the opportunity to congregate, socialize and have fun.
