Boise is one of the smaller cities on this list, but obviously it has a big place in its heart and lots of parks for dogs. The 6-acre Amity Dog Park has separate fenced areas for large and small dogs, a giant swimming pond, walking trails, and more. The most recent addition is the Together Treasure Valley Dog Island off-leash area inside Ann Morrison Park. In July, the city hosted a dedication ceremony and “unleashing of the dogs.”
