The pandemic changed a lot about the way we live. And, during our periods of prolonged isolation, many people turned to pets to cope with loneliness. It’s no secret. Pets are proven to help with mood and can even have positive physical effects on the body, such as lowering blood pressure, or helping owners become more active.

Pets are family. And when you choose a new place to live in Dallas, it’s essential to find the right fit for everyone—fur, feathers, and scales included.

The best way to scope out the perfect pet-friendly apartment is to contact a local apartment locating agent who knows where to find them. (Psst, that’s us!) Instead of checking every apartment building website for pet policies—or worse, calling them all because they don’t list it—use our concierge service to discover the right place. 

From reasonable pet deposits, to gaining quick access to dog-friendly green spaces, check out some of our favorite buildings for you and your pets.

Best Apartments that Allow Pets & Have Bark Parks

Gallery at Turtle Creek

Rent Amount: $1400-2300

Address: 3427 Cedar Springs Rd, Dallas, TX

Neighborhood: Turtle Creek

Why We Love It: 

If you’re a dog owner looking to get out and exercise with your pup, there’s no better place than the Gallery at Turtle Creek. It’s nestled within the lush greenery of the Turtle Creek neighborhood and sits only a few blocks from both the Katy Trail and Turtle Creek Park.

The apartments themselves offer pet-friendly features as well. There’s a built-in dog run and grooming station, a dog-friendly courtyard with plenty of seating, and sound barrier walls to keep noisier animals from disturbing the neighbors. It’s a pet lover’s paradise!

The Mitchell Lofts

Rent Amount: $1800-3500

Address: 3800 Commerce St, Dallas, TX

Neighborhood: Deep Ellum

Why We Love It:

Once home to a prominent cotton gin manufacturing company, this truly historic building has been renovated into some seriously amazing apartments. It’s part of Deep Ellum, which means plenty of pet-friendly restaurants and quiet neighborhood streets for your daily walks with Fido.

The apartment complex prides itself on being pet friendly, displaying their pet policies clearly on the website for everyone to find easily. There’s a fenced-in dog park, a BBQ area with picnic tables, and a pool with grassy areas nearby. Many of the apartments feature concrete floors that no pet’s nails will scratch or wear down. This place certainly knows pets!

Camden Farmer’s Market Apartments

Address: 2210 Canton St, Dallas, TX

Neighborhood: Downtown

Why We Love It:

This Downtown apartment building bellies up to Deep Ellum, which gives you the best of everything in the area, especially for pet parents. The Deep Ellum Dog Park is right across the street, and The Upper Paw grooming salon & boutique is close by.

When it comes to pets, there are a few restricted dog breeds, but no weight limit, and each apartment can have up to three animals. Every apartment features a full-size washer and dryer so you can keep your apartment, clothes, and pet accessories clean and smelling fresh.

MAA Medical District

Why We Love It:

We did it. We actually found one—an apartment building with no weight or breed restrictions! This one sits in the Medical District, and they have everything you could want in an apartment to call home.

There are plenty of floor plans to choose from, including loft and townhome configurations. Some even come with attached garages. The community is also gated and secure for you and your pets. Smart home technology lets you lock your front door from anywhere, so your pets will never get out accidentally.

LARQ Henderson

Rent Amount: $1300-2400

Address: 1945 Bennett Ave, Dallas, TX

Neighborhood: Knox-Henderson

Why We Love It:

First of all, dog parents should shoot for a first-floor apartment. What could be better than skipping the walk and letting your fur babies out into your private pet yard first thing in the morning while you put on the coffee? These apartments also feature a bark park and pet spa for both small and large dogs.

Hang out with your pets in your apartment, which features an open layout where you can keep an eye on them, and stained concrete flooring they won’t tear up. If you want to be out and about, head outside to the poolside grill area or covered, open-air lounge to chill with other residents and their pets.
