Las Vegas is somewhat limited in the places you can go swimming with your dog in public, but I’ve pulled together the best ones and a few other tips for keeping your pup cool when it’s hot outside.

Lake Mead Recreational Area

There are designated areas where dogs are allowed to be off-leash. These are the places in which your dogs can swim.

Open to humans year-round, but at the end of summer each year, it’s the dogs’ turn! You can bring your dog to the water park so they can enjoy the pools.

Black Mountain Aquatic Complex: Doggie Paddle and Play Day

Held every year at the Black Mountain Recreation Center Aquatic Complex in nearby Henderson for your dog to enjoy at the end of summer.

You can take your dog out into the lake with you, giving her the opportunity to take a quick dip in open water.
