Be careful when walking your dog on hot, dry summer days in Dallas as extreme heat can cause heat related illnesses if you or your pup overdo it. Stay in shady areas, take water, and walk when it is cooler in the early morning or evening. Winters are relatively warm in Dallas and cold temperatures are not a factor, however, occasional freezing rain can be problematic as it creates treacherous footing on paved surfaces. Wear good footwear or wait until icy surfaces thaw with daytime heating. Spring storms are frequent and severe weather should be avoided. Fall is generally ideal for walking in Dallas with less severe weather conditions.
