Hi, I am Helen. I am home mother with my husband and 2 boys. I have dog Chewy, dachshund mix and cat Tom, Domestic Short at home. They are so sweet, I love them so much. One is calm, likes to be hugged and combed. Another one is active, full of energy, likes run and fetch. I love their different character. I like to take chewy to walk in the beautiful natural environment. Keep eye on him, ensure he is not sniffing/eating bad things. Observe his poop color and shape when I clean up, that helps me understand his health condition. Talking and sometime singing quietly to him when we see something interesting. He likes that and always look at me softly and want a pet and huge. If you like your lovely one have a same safe and joyful walking, please let me know, and I definitely love to take care them, because they deserve to.

Hi, I'm Britany. I have lived in the Dallas area all my life, except while in college. I have walked dogs my whole life, first beginning with my own, and then moving on to friends and family.

I have been a dog walker for 10+ years and I love the relationship that I can have with a pet aside from the owner/pet relationship. I am like the grandparent that gets to spoil and love them then I get to see them every day or when parents go out of town and we get to have a fun time and play hard. I love talking to them and at some point I expect them to start talking back.

Dog Walking in Richardson

There is an abundance of pet-friendly attractions in Richardson, Texas. Whether you’re looking to spend the whole day enjoying the sunshine and working up a sweat, or if you and Fido would just like to take an easy stroll in the park, there are options for everybody!

After five years of planning, Richardson’s own dog park, the Bush Central Barkway, was opened in 2005. This beautiful and clean park offers the traditional small and large dog areas, along with a third area for slower-moving older dogs or dogs who are recovering from surgery. With benches and bathrooms, this park is a hit with pooches and their two-legged owners.

What about trying one of Richardson’s trails for a walk or hike? A local favorite is the Spring Creek Nature Area Trail. At almost three miles, this loop trail provides a paved route and access to the river. There’s also Prairie Creek Park, which has gorgeous paths and covered bridges. Notable for its’ fall foliage, this trail is perfect for short and peaceful walks.

Richardson has about forty total miles of trails and walkways, so there’s always something new to explore. Spring Creek Trail, Renner Trail, Owens Trail, and Duck Creek Trail are other viable options in the area – just take your pick!

Bush Central Barkway is a very punny name for this off leash dog park. Located near the parkways almost as far north as Plano, Creekwood Apartments has to make use of every block it’s got. Dedicating space to canines wasn’t done lightly, and they’ve pulled out all the stops to make this park a success. There are three areas: one for large dogs, one for small dogs, and one for slow, elderly, or disabled dogs who need to be with other low activity pups. There are shade trees, soft turf, and a paved walkway. There’s even a doggie drinking fountain!

Terrace Park is nestled in a residential neighborhood, and has the busy park amenities to show for it. Aside from the playground and sports areas, the park has picnic tables and some grass for walking, playing, and lounging in the sun. If your dog needs a bit more exercise, you can use the walking path to walk loops until he’s all tuckered out. If you work up an appetite, head to Sultan Cafe. This lovely cafe serves mediterranean and Middle Eastern food with authentic flavors. It also has many outdoor seating options so you and your dog are comfortable and cared for.

University students influence the entire area around them, and that’s why Point North Park is geared less towards children and more towards adults. There’s no playground, though there are sports fields and courts. There’s a picnic area and lots of green space for your dog to roam! The park isn’t huge, but it is large enough for you to tire out an energetic dog with a few laps around the park. This is great for those days when you just can’t fit a full park run into your schedule. At Point North Park, you get what you need, and it’s pretty great.

Heights Park in Richardson is a great place to go with your dog. Dogs have to be on leash in the park, but with 33 acres to explore, that’s no problem. You can start by letting your dog people-watch at the sports fields and community pool (sadly, the doggie paddle is forbidden.) Next head deeper into the park and just put in the distance. By the time you’ve made it through the walking paths, your pup should be panting for a break. Picnic or just rest under the shade trees before heading off. Heights Park is the height of doggie enjoyment.
