We all know that Austin is great place for people to live, but it’s ALSO a great place for man’s best friend. Dogs are a huge part of the Austin community, and there are so many places for dogs to roam freely without any problem. You can easily take your dog with you anywhere in the 512, but here are just a couple places I can highlight for you that are not only great and fun for your dog but for you as well!
Dog House Dog Park is centered on 2.5 acres just off FM 1431 on CR 175. They have a 1/2 acre of fenced area perfect for letting your dog of that leash. There are multiple places for dog owners to hang out and watch their dogs be dogs. In the off-leash dog park there is plenty of fresh water to go around. The Doghouse has a separate area that is fenced in for adoptions, training, and private yappy hours.
The off-leash dog park area is the only area that is membership only. Fees are $5.00 for a day entry per dog. Yearly membership is $50.00 a year. If you have more than one dog, the cost of the yearly membership is an additional $5.00 per dog.
This shopping center is very pet friendly. Take your dog with you on that weekend shopping spree. Take your furry best friend with you on your run to Juicy Couture or Lululemon. No need to leave your pet in the car when you have very pet-friendly areas outside and inside the stores as well.
Make sure to ask the store manager if it’s completely okay to take them inside, but it should be fine for the most part; if not, the Domain is equipped with little water bowls and dog biscuits!
This buzzing and busy street is very pet-friendly. Take your dog with your to the delicious Bangers and have a great time enjoying a classic brew and tasty sausage while spending quality time with your pet. Feel free to walk up and down Rainey Street with your furry companion.
Take your dog to Zilker Park for a day of fun. Play fetch and fun games with your pet as well as let them play with other dogs in the park. There’s nothing like spending a beautiful day at the park with your dog taking in the sun and breathing in the crisp, clean air. Zilker is in the middle of downtown Austin with beautiful views of the city. You definitely won’t be disappointed when you check out this spot with your pet.
Get wet and wild with your pup at Barton Creek! Enjoy sipping on a delicious cold beverage and taking in the sun while your furry friend plays with other dogs in the cool shallow waters of this Austin creek. Texas gets hot, so there’s no better place for you and your pet to cool down.
