Laid-back Lytle, TX, is located just 23 miles away from San Antonio -- a perfect place to enjoy a small town atmosphere that lets you press “paws” on the big city grind while staying close to all the amenities your pet needs to keep their tail wagging. With a population of just 2,800, Lytle may be little, but its community is proud and civic-minded, and there’s certainly room for a veterinary clinic. You’ll find one right on Main Street, which also offers an online pharmacy. Twenty-four hour care is available just a short drive away in Devine.
While there’s no dedicated dog park in Lytle, you’ll find a community park here which is both scenic and relatively canine-friendly -- your pup will need to be leashed, though, and be sure to bring your own water. The tiny city has its charms, but San Antonio, of course, boasts far more in the way of dog-friendly restaurants, hiking trails and events. You may need to drive a just a few miles up I-35 to give your dog the best experience. Not to worry -- with a long enough leash, Lytle can be a great base camp for you and your pooch to romp fur-ther afield!
While Alamo Heights is a little further out from Lytle than either Southtown or Downtown, this furrific neighbourhood is still worth a visit. Your pooch can roam free around The Bark Park, an acre of tree-shaded open space off La Jara and Alamo Heights boulevards. There’s also a water trough, so your dog can sate their thirst after working up a sweat! The area also features a couple of pawesome speciality dog stores. Mike’s Dog Store on 999 E Basse Road offers premium dog food, healthy treats, collars and beds, and Fifi and Fido’s Dog Boutiques offers a more upscale shopping experience.
