Oklahoma City offers a variety of dog-friendly activities and dining options, ensuring that both you and your furry friend can make the most of your time in this Big League city. The Oklahoma City ordinance requires all dogs to be on a leash when in public, be up to date on rabies vaccination, and for owners to pick up pet waste on private and public property, including other people’s yards, parks and on sidewalks or trails. Always remember to check with each venue regarding their pet specific policies before heading out.
