Discover Ladera’s Dog-Friendly Communities

Ladera DFW communities are not just designed for the 55+ crowd – your dog will love living here, too! We know pets are important family members and deserve to have amenities and homes designed with them in mind. Read on to learn more about our dog-friendly communities!

Dog-Friendly Amenities

From dog parks to miles of trails, Ladera 55+ communities offer plenty of amenities that your pup will enjoy.

Set up a puppy playdate and meet new friends at the Ladera at Tavolo Park dog park! Take a walk along our trails and take in open greenspace to keep your best friend happy and healthy. Everyone in the family will love spending more time outdoors in a Ladera community.

Pet-Approved Design

Many 55+ homebuyers want to downsize to a smaller home for added convenience and less maintenance. Ladera 55+ homes allow you to downsize without sacrificing the luxury and privacy of a single-family home, and this includes space for your pets.

Ladera offers a wide variety of right-sized floorplans to help meet your needs. Single-level homes are wonderful options for aging dogs who have difficulties getting up and down stairs. Flex spaces provide unique design opportunities for your pet’s bed and toys.

Dogs love having backyard space to explore, but some 55+ homebuyers may be wary of lawn maintenance. Another added perk of living in a Ladera community: your front yard and backyard mowing is taken care of for you by the HOA so your pet can still enjoy the benefits of a yard while you get to enjoy the perks of lock-and-leave living.


Ladera’s gated DFW communities offer an added sense of security for pet owners since they are tucked away from busy roads with lots of traffic. Additionally, our neighborhoods are designed smaller so you can get to know your neighbors. Our homeowners keep an eye out for each other, which is helpful if a pet escapes from a home.
