Fun Things to Do With Your Dog in Oklahoma City

Looking for things to do with your new canine companion in the Oklahoma City area? Head to OKC PawPark with your pup to meet new friends and enjoy plenty of room for off-leash playtime. This dog park features separate areas for larger dogs and small or senior dogs. There are also water stations, benches, trees, and a pond for swimming. Other area dog parks include Pets & People Park in Yukon, Wiggly Field in Del City, and the Edmond Dog Park in Edmond.

Right along the eastern shore of Lake Overholser is the pet-friendly Route 66 Boathouse. Offering several outdoor activities including kayaking and walking trails south of the historic Route 66 bridge, the Boathouse is a perfect place to spend an afternoon with your leashed pup. You can also bring your dog to Tres Sueños Vineyards and Winery in nearby Luther for a stroll through the vineyards, a hike through the woods, and tastings at the outdoor picnic tables.

When you and your pooch get hungry, dine on the patio overlooking Lake Hefner at Louie’s-On the Lake. Enjoy an after-dinner stroll along the lake and gaze at the sunset. After dinner, browse puppy treats and healthy foods at Barking Dog Bakery.

The Top 5 Reasons to Adopt, Rather than Buy a Dog or Puppy for Sale in Oklahoma City

  1. Finding the Best Match - Luckily, when you decide you want to add a furry member to your family, you have many dogs to choose from. Dogs and puppies of different breeds come with genetic tendencies that vary between breeds. More importantly, they also have distinct personalities, as each is an individual! It is common for rescuers and animal shelter staff and volunteers to already know the personality and tendencies of many of their dogs and puppies. This means they can better match up your requirements and lifestyle with the ideal dog or puppy. When searching for a new dog or puppy in Oklahoma City, consider your lifestyle first. Answer yourself these questions:
    1. Do you have time to housetrain a puppy and teach them the rules of the house?
    2. Can you provide adequate exercise for an active dog, or one who needs mental stimulation and lots of interaction?
    3. Will your new four-legged friend have other pets as buddies around the house?
    4. Is it critical that you find a dog who is comfortable with children?
  2. Purebred or Fabulous Mixed-Breed: Shelters Have Them All! - Looking for a specific type of dog or puppy? It is estimated that 30% of all shelter animals are purebred. There are also large numbers of “breed-rescue” organizations specifically devoted to rescuing and adopting out a particular breed. On the other hand, you can find your own one-of-a-kind, amazing mixed-breed dog in a shelter. We love those fabulous mutts! Due to a larger gene pool to draw from, often mixed-breed dogs have fewer behavioral problems or health issues, and can even live longer than purebred dogs. In short, whatever you’re looking for you can find at your local shelter or rescue group in Oklahoma City, and right here on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
  3. Adult Adoption = Less Stress - Adopting an adult dog has many advantages. Adult dogs in shelters have often already been in homes, and may already be housebroken and obedience-trained. Also, since adult dogs’ personalities are already established, it is easy to tell if they are good with children, or familiar and comfortable with other pets. One thing is certain; adult dogs require less attention and less work than puppies do. Best of all, any rescued dog will be forever grateful you saved their life.
  4. Be a Hero - Adoption helps save lives! One dog or puppy adopted in Oklahoma City paves the way for another one to be saved. When you choose to adopt, you’re an instant hero.
  5. Adoption is MORE AFFORDABLE - Typically, adoption fees are much less than you’d pay for a dog or puppy for sale at a pet store, or even a breeder, in Oklahoma City. Adopting is especially a great deal because usually rescued dogs and puppies have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and have been spayed or neutered. It all adds up, but when you choose pet adoption you are paying less for a dog or puppy who is just as perfect as one you’d find for sale!
