Averaging temperatures much warmer than the city by the bay, Albuquerque, New Mexico is nestled firmly in the desert heat. Hate the rain because you can’t walk your dog in it? No problem! It only rains 28 days of the year in this heat-filled oasis.

Known as Duke City, Albuquerque falls just behind San Francisco in the number of dog parks per 100,000 residents. Dog-friendly restaurants aren’t as typical, but the cost of living makes this desert locale a top location to raise a pup and have some money left over to buy yourself nice things!
