Houston's Best Dog Parks!According to recent studies, over a third of all U.S. households have one or more dogs. We spend most of our time working or running our homes, and our fur babies need a little fun too. Taking your dog for a walk around your neighborhood is great but if you want to see your pooch really light up, take him to the park to make some friends! Dog parks can act as a gathering spot for pet parents. We bring our pets to the park to get exercise and socialize with other pets. Dog parks also promote safety because the pet owners are not walking on busy streets. Public dog parks allow dogs to get ample off-leash exercise and social activity with other dogs. Here are five highly ranked and loved dog parks in Houston!
