Dog Walking in Vernon

Once a pit stop for countless cowboys on cattle drives across Texas on the Great Western Trail in the 1880s, Vernon was a beacon of civilization in a vast prairie. Today, Vernon’s downtown area is lined with quaint historic buildings housing modern-day businesses. With the nearest big city of Wichita Falls almost 50 miles away, Vernon is understandably a tight-knit community with small-town values. The town also has four veterinary clinics to make sure your dog stays happy and healthy.

You and your furry friend can get some exercise and experience some of Vernon’s rich history by taking a walk in Downtown Vernon! Stop by the majestic Wilbarger County Court House and see the monuments commemorating the area’s history, including the Great Western Trail. Though the trail may look different now as it serves as Vernon’s Main Street, you and Fido can still retrace the steps of cowboys from the days of yore!

Need a place to stay the night with your dog? The Hampton Inn Vernon has clean and cozy pet-friendly rooms where you and Fido can get some shut-eye.

Whether you’re just passing through, or it’s your home on the range, you and your pup will have a pawsome time in Vernon!
