When Fido or Fluffy joins you on vacation, you want to make sure they have as much fun as you do. Scottsdale can help with pet-friendly accommodations at dozens of our finest hotels, resorts and vacation rentals; playtime at area dog parks; and special treats at local restaurants. Here are just a few of the ways you can pamper your pet in Scottsdale.
1. FireSky Resort & Spa
Four-legged guests at FireSky Resort & Spa (above) will feel at home as soon as they see their name on the resort’s welcome board. And in your room, a cozy pet bed and special food and water bowls await. Couldn’t bring your buddy along on this trip? FireSky’s Guppy Love program offers complimentary goldfish to keep you company during your stay.

8. A Walk in the Park
Scottsdale’s year-round sunny weather is perfect for a walk in the park – the dog park, that is! Treat your canine companion to a romp at one of the city’s off-leash dog parks (above). Most are open from sunrise to sunset daily, with several offering extended hours until 10 p.m.
