    Great location

    great place to shop, eat and train dogs, but opening at 11:00 am is already half the day and in San Antonio too hot to bring dogs.

    Awesome Place To Shop With Your Dog!!

    This place is fantastic!! Dogs welcome everywhere!! Fountains and ‘ponds’, palm trees. It’s on open center/outdoor mall. All the restaurants have outdoor seating. Kona restaurant prepared a fresh perfectly rare beef patty on a plate for Cabot when I met a friend here for lunch. Great place to just hang out and enjoy the atmosphere. Thoroughly impressed!!!

    My pup’s favorite place in San Antonio

    San Antonio is becoming a great place for your pup! La Cantera is one of the best and keeps getting better.

    More and more stores are allowing your pooch in their premises. Some of the stores now offer fresh water. Altar D’ State even has it outside!

    Do check online to make sure the store you want to visit is on the list.

    This is also hands down the most beautiful mall in San Antonio! Great places to eat as well. Lots of out seating.

    Great place to shop!

    We took our dachshund and were met with many stores that we could go in and shop with our dog in tow. Check the website to find the list of all the shops, some of the ones that dont allow dogs are suprising, but more allow dog than dont.
    They supply potty bags to pick up after your pal if you dont bring your own, however theres no water for them anywhere so you'll have to bring your own or buy a drink if they get thirsty.
