Albuquerque Ranks as #2 Most Dog-Friendly City in America

SmartAsset gives Albuquerque top marks in annual study.

In its third annual study, SmartAsset uncovered the most dog-friendly cities in America and Albuquerque ranks in the number two spot!

Albuquerque has some of the most dog-friendly infrastructure in our study. With 2.3 dog parks per 100,000 residents, 171 dog-friendly restaurants and three dog friendly shopping centers, Albuquerque ranks no lower than 25th for our dog-related metrics.

The city also ranks in the top 20 for its low precipitation, so it’s unlikely any sudden rainstorms will ruin your dog-walking plans.
