A Date With Your Dog


It’s not unusual to see a Talking Rock resident holding a leash. Just as much as we appreciate the open space and western spirit at Talking Rock, so too do we adore our dogs.

They’re just part of the picture here.

We let them lead on the way to Jake’s Corner, a dog park within Talking Rock designed with play and connection in mind. Play for the pups, connection for the people. We invite them to our events and we include them on strolls around our beautiful community, allowing our four-legged buddies to experience the benefits that come with high-desert living, too.

And, lucky for us, Prescott is just as dog-friendly as Talking Rock is. So, we are able to bring our dogs along for the ride when we venture out.

Hike with them

Although Prescott is teeming with amazing hiking trails, a couple stand out for hiking with dogs. Watson Woods, nestled in a preserve, comes recommended for dogs, as does Constellation Trail — both noted for their ease of accessibility, shade, and scenery. And, if you’re looking for water, head to Watson Lake.

Grab a beer with them

Prescott is home to Whiskey Row, so it goes without saying that there’s a variety of bars to choose from when you’re looking for a cold beer. And, a fair number of establishments in the Prescott area open their patios to dogs, including Prescott Public House, Granite Mountain Brewing, and Lonesome Valley Brewing.

Eat with them

While most dog-friendly establishments will offer a bowl for water and space on their patio, The Barley Hound takes its canine hospitality to another level. The gastropub has its own dog menu, offering up two options, served on a frisbee on its relaxing patio. And, if they’re too busy, there is a bounty of alternative options in Prescott for dog-friendly patios.
