The majority of warehouse and soft lofts in Deep Ellum, Downtown Dallas and Design District areas are very pet friendly. Though most have breed restrictions, there are dozens of communities that will accept large dogs in Dallas' urban neighborhoods. Catering to your four-legged friends has brought about the development of on-site dog parks that allow residents to socialize while their dogs exercise and play. Some loft apartments are offering additional services such as dog walking and pet sitting. With easy access to the Katy Trail and several city and private dog parks in the area, loft living has never been more appealing.
