Dogtown Austin

                             PENNY SAYS HI!

A recent article in the Austin Statesman was about how dog friendly Austin is and I have to agree.  

Here is the article:

Before I moved to Austin in 2008, I visited many times.  I was struck at how dog friendly everything really is. It's one of the reasons (among many) I moved here.

Here are some of my favorite dog friendly places in Austin:

My favorite place to go with my dogs Penny & Gigi is Auditorium Shores. It's also a great place for dog watching.  Since Penny & Gigi are Frenchies, I don't allow them in the water, but it is fun to watch the other dogs play and swim in the water.  It's a very friendly place in a great location.

Closer to home is Mueller Lake Park, which is a great place for a dog walk if you live on the east side of town.  There are lots of trails, a small lake, food trailers and lots of friendly dogs there.

Gigi and I took an agility class from The Zoom Room, which was a lot of fun!  Gigi can jump very high and it was a great bonding experience for us when I first met her.  We ended up putting an agility set in the backyard. Sometimes I use it too.

Gigi, Penny and I belong to the Austin French Bulldog Meetup group and some other dog meetups.  There are many dog meetup groups here in Austin.  There are always some doggie Meetups coming up.
