Far North is located, as its name implies, on the far north tip of Dallas, Texas. There are many businesses located throughout the region on main thoroughfares as well as post-secondary institutions, schools, and libraries. The Galleria is a large shopping complex located on the southeast corner of the region but is not walkable for most residents. The residential area is very suburban in nature and services are spread out. 


Dog walkers who stroll the area will experience extreme hot, dry conditions in the summer. Heat-related illnesses can occur if people or dogs are exposed to excessive temperatures for prolonged periods of time. Avoid walking in the middle of the day when temperatures hit their peak to avoid overstressing yourself or your pet. Dallas has occasional freezing rain episodes in the winter which cause pedestrian sidewalks to become slippery and dangerous. Wait until icy surfaces thaw before venturing out with your pet.
