Luckily, there is a number of bars in the DFW area that allow man’s best friends to accompany their owners for a few drinks. These establishments include neighborhood bars and outdoor patios that allow people to have some drinks, while their dogs are more than welcome to join them. Here is a look at some of the best dog bars available in the DFW area.
