Customize Your Camelot Home with Pet-Friendly Features


When developing our timeless Camelot home designs and selecting the areas in which we build our communities, we always focus on the whole family — even the four-legged. This gives you the opportunity to create a Camelot luxury home that meets your exact specifications and find a community that makes all of your family members happy. Explore the pet-friendly home features we offer to keep your furry family member content and discover different activities you can do with your pup around our communities and throughout the Phoenix area.


Pet-Friendly Design Features Available in Camelot Luxury Homes

For our family-run business, thinking about all members of the family comes naturally. In our Phoenix, North Scottsdale, and Fountain Hills luxury homes, we offer optional pet-friendly features.

With an average of 299 days of sunshine in Phoenix, our designers understand the value of outdoor living. Many Camelot luxury homes feature courtyards and outdoor spaces that feel like an extension of indoor living spaces. Human and four-legged residents enjoy the opportunity to easily slip outside and enjoy the desert vistas available at many of our homes. For those with felines, our courtyards offer a safe space for your cat to soak up some sunshine.

Unfortunately, come summertime, those sunny days can wreak havoc on your dog’s paws. Avoid burning paws with the option of paver driveways and front walkways. Pavers are known to retain less heat than asphalt driveways and, as a bonus, it has the potential to elevate the exterior of your home.

Other pet-friendly features include an option to upgrade to stain-resistant carpet and add in a dog shower for less mess, and more time with your pet.


Dog-Friendly Opportunities in the Phoenix Area

If you are looking to spend some quality time with your furry friend outside of your Camelot home, check out these 7 dog-friendly activities near your community and around the Valley.

Go on a Hike

When temperatures allow, hike dog-friendly trails like Lookout Mountain, Hidden Valley, and Lost Dog Wash.

Tour a Working Farm

Take your dog to the Farm at South Mountain. Stroll the idyllic grounds and dine at one of the dog-friendly restaurants: Morning Glory Café or The Farm Kitchen. Make sure you check the schedule for events and their seasonal hours.

Cool Off

If you don’t have a pool in your backyard, visit Gilbert’s Cosmo Dog Park. This dog park features a “lake” made from reclaimed water for dogs to have fun and cool off.

Go to a Baseball Game

Take your pup to the ball game. Once a year the Arizona Diamondbacks host a Bark in the Park game at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix where pups are welcome.
