Congress Avenue is a beautiful neighborhood located in the heart of Austin. Although the climate is usually pretty neutral year-round, hotter summer months can cause overheating. To help prevent this for both you and your pet, make sure to keep both well hydrated at all times. Although there is not much in the way of pet services, there are several options for the people walking their pets. With three coffee shops, there is always a great option available for your morning walks. There are also more fun and unique shops that could make your dog walking experience a very unique one. One example of this is Wild About Music. This is a music-themed gift shop carrying any number of gifts and gadgets,  all related to music. Another unique option is Hatbox. This is one of the only haberdasheries left and features tons of beautifully handcrafted hats for you to purchase and enjoy.

This area of Texas is extremely flat, meaning that these neighborhoods in the heart of downtown Austin will almost always be entirely flat. Although this does not seem very exciting, it creates a unique opportunity to walk far distances without tiring you or your furry friend out. This is a great plus when it comes to walking to your favorite park or part of the big city, because a further walk than usual won't have to stand in you way any more. This area is also very artificial due to it's location in a big city. This makes it easy to enjoy a number of local shops and attractions while on your walk.  In austin, just about anything you could need is walking distance away, so don't be afraid to choose a walk with your dog over a ride in the car during your errand running.  However, there are also several parks for a little taste of nature.

There are several unique and fun parks in this area. However, if you enjoy seeing water during your walks, only one truly stands out amongst the rest. The Town Lake Metropolitan Park is located on Waller Beach and features beautiful views of both the city and the gorgeous waterfront. It is an all-around amazing park for all of your dog walking needs. 


Another great option is Pease Park. Featuring a disc-golf course and beautiful view of Shoal Creek,  this is a very popular spot with the local University of Texas in Austin students which makes this a great location for younger dog walkers to mingle and possibly meet some new friends. 


The Duncan Neighborhood Park and Austin Recreation center are also two great locations for a more relaxed stroll. Featuring beautiful trails, both locations offer a quiet and peaceful experience where you can enjoy a beautiful day with your furry friend.
