For the most part North Texas is pretty dog and pet friendly. You typically have to keep them fenced or on leash though. There's a few restaurants on Greenville that seem friendly if you bring them to the porch. Most restaurants will not be friendly if you want to bring them inside. The pet stores seem to be pretty open to allowing pets inside, especially dogs. I normally tell my clients from outside the area...."don't mess with our dogs or our kids and you'll fit in". Surprisingly enough you buy a home in a neighborhood with sidewalks and even during the heat of the summer you'll see people out with their dogs. Pet spas and doggy day care are popping up all over in this area and the demand is there. Hope this helps, but if you need more specifics let me know. I live and work in the area.

Well, the best place that I would consider is near the dog park. Plano has an awesome dog park that allows people to let their dogs raom free off of a leash. It is located off of Custer and Spring Creek. Good Luck!

Hi,

Sylvia is correct-the Jack Carter Park is a great park. it's leash free-so you need to keep your eye on your pet because you never know how dogs will react to each other. Frisco has a "Doggie Play Group" where the owners and their pets get together and do activities together. Several cities have meet-ups as well-where people can find a group with similar interests and they meet-up.

I would ask what other criteria is important to you in a home and go from there. Are schools important, distance to work, etc...This is actually a great time to think about buying in this market. Lots of inventory on hand.

If I can help you any further please let me know. My office is in Plano.
Best of luck to you,
Marcia

Hi Millers:

I used to live in Plano, Texas, just north of Dallas. Plano is a great town, close enough to go to Dallas and has a lot of large companies (EDS is who I used to work for) and homes from entry level to luxury homes. Where I used to live in East Plano (my first home), there is a creek and a trail behind the house and we walked our dogs along the trail (later biked with the kids) all the way to several different parks. Great Place!

Here is a City of Plan link to the local dog park

If you can't find a great agent on Trulia, give me a call (see my profile). After one bad agent, I finally found one that I am forever grateful for - this is before my RE career.
