Dog Walking in Truth or Consequences

Truth or Consequences isn't just a city; it's also a game show and was the inspiration for the town's current name. Although today the town is usually referred to as "T or C," it used to be called Hot Springs thanks to the local hot springs and natural areas surrounding them. Pups aren't allowed in the hot springs, so T or C has made plenty of spaces for pups to roam in the natural areas of the city.

Residents typically head to the Carole Wheeler Dog Park for a day out with their pup. The area is completely fenced-in with a dirt and grass terrain, and offers views of the surrounding mountains and river. Any dog can come thanks to the separate areas for large, small, and socially challenged dogs. Additional amenities for Fido include water fountains, clean-up stations, and free toys.

The Rio Grande River cuts right through the city, and right along the shore is the Ralph Edwards Park, a 20-acre area with grassy fields and large, shady trees. Dogs are welcome in the park while on a leash, with access to clean-up stations, water fountains, a gazebo, and picnic area.

Truth or Consequences even has two dedicated animal hospitals and shows even more love for pups each year with the expansion of new dog-friendly places.
