Santa Fe animal ordinances prohibit pets on the Plaza during public events such as the 4th of July Pancake Breakfast, Indian and Spanish Markets, the Labor Day Arts and Crafts Market, and Fiestas de Santa Fe. Dogs are not allowed in Cathedral Park, on school grounds, playing fields, or children’s playgrounds. Owners are required to carry plastic bags and must pick up and dispose of their animal’s waste when walking a dog off their own property.

Santa Fe Area Dog Parks

Frank Ortiz Dog Park – 160 Camino de Las Crudités

The area’s most popular Off Leash Dog Parks. This spectacular dog park has 138 acres of arroyos and hills, miles of trails and amazing views of Santa Fe. It’s one of the largest parks of its kind in the nation. Keep in mind, the park is not fenced, and dogs can roam comfortably on the trails. There is a large area near the free parking where dogs and people meet. It’s not for all dogs and many dogs that are not social or are fearful may not be comfortable.

Santa Fe Animal Shelter – 100 Caja Del Rio

Big fenced in off leash dog park, with three private runs and an enclosed little dog park.

Dining with Dogs

New Mexico began allowing dogs onto restaurant and bar patios after it was allowed by state statute in 2011. However, not all restaurants have found it comfortable to have pets mingle among patrons and it is up to a restaurant or bar to accept those dogs that are not service animals. There are two environmental health rules for dogs in restaurants and another for dogs on patios. Restaurants are allowed to accept only true service animals indoors, which includes emotional support animals.

  • All pets must be kept on a leash and under reasonable control.
  • Pets are not allowed on any furnishings, including tables and chairs.
