North Shearer Hills is a neighborhood in north San Antonio, Texas. The community is a 13-minute commute from the downtown business district. Locals of the area can walk to commercial corridors that are located on the south, west, and east of the community, so there are plenty of local businesses including restaurants, convenience shops, stores, and services that can be easily accessed on foot. There are two dog-friendly restaurants in the area where your dog can join you in outdoor seating areas. 

Dog walkers in San Antonio enjoy warm weather for most of the year. While winters are cool, they are still relatively mild, and temperatures in the daytime are above freezing. Summers are very hot and you and your pup may want to avoid the midday heat by scheduling outings for earlier or later in the day. Warmer months coincide with storm season. Thunderstorms with heavy rain, hail, and high winds pose a danger to exposed pedestrians and pets and should be avoided.

North Shearer Hills is bordered by Oblate Drive on the north, Blanco Road on the west, San Pedro Avenue on the east, and Olmos Creek on the south. There is a high school with sports fields on the west side of the district. 

Some apartment complexes are located in the community and commercial corridors are on the borders while most of the neighborhood is made up of single-family homes. The region is well landscaped with lots of large trees and spacious lawns in front of and behind homes. Many residential roads do not have separate paved sidewalks for pedestrians and pets, however, the large front lawns provide space to walk alongside the road without always having to share it with traffic. When you need to use the street, walk on the right side and keep your dog securely leashed. 

There are some gentle inclines in the region, but no steep hills that would be problematic for you and your dog on neighborhood treks.

Shearer Hills and the Ridgeview Walking Trail in Olmos Basin Park are located on the southeast side of North Shearer Hills and are looping paved and lighted trails around a small greenway with shrubs and open lawns. This is an excellent nearby spot for a stroll with your leashed pet.

It is a five minute drive east to the Olmos Basin Park which connects to the Brackenridge Park, providing 343 acres of recreational and natural greenway. The Olmos Basin Park has a short gravel trail and a shorter pugmill trail which is about half a mile in length that are ideal locations for walking with your canine companion. Lots of trees, a creek, and recreational amenities in the area make this an attractive park.

The Brackenridge Park section has a museum, zoo, gardens, and an outdoor theatre where access to dogs is restricted, however, there are also trails through wooded and open areas in this park where you and your pup are welcome.
