Located in southeast Washington, D.C., Fairfax is a residential neighborhood with some commercial services and a local church within walking distance. The Fairfax Village shopping center is located on the north side and has local convenience shops, services, and restaurants. 

Dog walkers who enjoy taking their dogs out for daily walks all year around will need to have appropriate outdoor gear to weather the elements. Cold winters with light snowfall are the norm and a warm coat and good footwear to traverse icy walkways is necessary during frigid weather. Spring and fall can see some significant rainfall and rain gear and umbrellas will keep you dry when strolling with your pup. Summers are humid and you will want to avoid the heat and stay hydrated to keep you and your pet comfortable. Thunderstorms are frequent in warmer months and can be severe, so when storms are imminent, take shelter and postpone outings until they have passed.

Fairfax Village is bordered by Pennsylvania Avenue on the northeast side, Alabama Avenue on the on the northwest, Suitland Road on the south, and Southern Avenue on the east. Fairfax Village is a middle-class residential neighborhood with garden apartments on attractive properties with paved paths near townhouses, condominium complexes, and some single-family residences. Dwellings are mostly brick construction and situated on well-landscaped properties. 

There are shade trees lining residential streets and separate sidewalks with grass berms that make safe pedestrian ways in the neighborhood. The terrain is relatively level with only some gentle inclines and no significant elevation changes to climb when walking with your canine companion in the region. Residential roads are laid out in a non-traditional pattern and skirt around residential developments. Main thoroughfares on the borders are more heavily trafficked than interior roads, so use caution crossing roadways and keep your dog securely leashed.

Fort Davis Park is located on the northern border of Fairfax Village. This park is situated on a former civil war earthwork and the Fort Davis Park trail runs through it, extending to the north and south. To the north, the trail will take you and your furry friend to Fort Dupont Park. 

Fort Dupont Park, also called Fort Circle Park, is located several blocks to the northwest and provides a large wooded area with trails and recreational facilities. The Fort Circle Park Trail runs for several miles, connecting several civil war defense sites that are now beautiful greenways. This trail runs along old roadways and features a variety of trees including oaks, maples, pine, and beech trees. There is some local wildlife in the park that can be distracting to your dog, so keep your pet leashed. In addition, clean up after your pet to be respectful to other park and trail users.
