No Need To Leave Your Pets At Home!
Everybody loves pets! There’s a reason dogs are hailed as our best friends, and in addition to all their other wonderful qualities, they can make great travel partners. When it's time to get out of the house and travel, don't leave your pet at home. Bring them to Mesquite! Mesquite offers a slew of hotels, restaurants, parks, and services that are perfect for your four-legged companion.

Dog-Friendly Activities and Events
Mesquite offers a handful of seasonal events and activities that welcome dogs in attendance, so plan your visit when these are happening, so that you can have a ton of fun with your four-legged bestie. For those that love history as much as their pups, Doggy Derby Day is held in April at Opal Lawrence Historical Park. Doggie Splash Day is put on in August by Mesquite Parks and Rec at Vanston Pool to cap off the summer, and for those that love the spooky season, PumpkinFest has several activities that you and your dog can participate in.
More Events to Wag Your Tail At
Mesquite is also a hot spot for several dog shows throughout the year. Usually held at the Mesquite Convention Center and Exhibit Hall, these dog shows bring in hundreds of dogs and thousands of dog enthusiasts to the Official Rodeo Capital of Texas. Our unique geographical location and pet-friendly atmosphere are attractive propositions for dog lovers looking to meet in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. In 2021, we hosted the Siberian Husky National Specialty, Rhodesian Ridgeback National Specialty, and ESSFTA National Specialty. We are proud of being the preferred conference venue for pet lovers!
