The Lucky Dog Park is a great facility to take your pup to for some obedience training and off-leash running. Lucky Dog offers a wide range of training and allows their park to be open to dogs once training is complete. Besides that, they also let their facility be rented out for dog-related events. Their 2-acre park is packed dirt and grass, the perfect mixture for fetch and be sure to bring some water with you when visiting so your pup can stay hydrated.

If you and your pup are looking for a great weekend adventure, then be sure to take a trip to the town of Athens. Athens is 45 minutes out of Tyler, but it is home to East Texas Arboretum and Botanical Society. This 104-acre public park has over two miles of nature trails, formal gardens, a play garden, picnic areas, and a museum. Leashed dogs are welcome to join you as you roam around the botanical society, but make sure you keep an eye on them since animals, like frogs and squirrels, do wander around and are likely to be spotted by your pup.
