Why do dog owners love Austin?
The capital of Texas, the 11th most populous city in the United States, and the home of keeping things weird, Austin is a unique and vibrant city that attracts people from all over the country. Home to the Texas State Capitol, the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum, the University of Texas at Austin, and the Darrell K Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium, it's got plenty of great landmarks to enjoy. And with tons of great parks, amazing Tex-Mex and Texas barbecue restaurants - plus over 1,000 operating food trucks - and an eclectic live music scene, Austin is a destination city not just to visit but to live in, especially for dog owners and pet parents. This city of 931,830 people regularly shows up on lists of the most dog-friendly cities in America and features great dog boarding options like Rover available throughout the city.
Why choose Rover dog boarding in Austin?
In-home dog boarding in Austin is a great option for most dog owners. With Rover, instead of going to an unknown large facility, your dog stays in the comfort of your dog sitter's home. Your dog gets to spend one-on-one time with a loving sitter who'll treat them like part of their family.
What are some great parks in Austin for dog walks?
Austin is absolutely full of great dog parks. With at least 16 parks to visit with your pup, there are acres and acres of green space and off-leash areas to explore and enjoy. Parks like the 13-acre Red Bud Isle feature a wide expanse of open area where your dog can play with other dogs and swim off leash. The park at Mills Pond, accessible from the north end of Wells Port Drive or off Bratton Lane, offers a chance to take your dog for a lovely stroll and watch the locals do some fishing in the early morning or evening. Also, be sure to check out Auditorium Shores (between the former Palmer Auditorium and the shores of Lady Bird Lake), and not just for the doggy showers after your pup takes a dip. The park is also a place for outdoor concerts, and you can even find a memorial statue of Stevie Ray Vaughan.
What Austin neighborhoods are good for dogs and pet parents?
There's so much to enjoy in Austin, including a quirky collection of neighborhoods, each with their own appeal. Take Central Austin neighborhood Hyde Park, which dates back to 1891 and is considered Austin's first suburb. You're more likely to find cute bakeries - including the Eater.com-approved Quack's 43rd St Bakery, home to massive cookies and incredible cakes - and nice neighbors than noisy bars or loud nightlife there. Same for Barton Hills, which might just be the best place in Austin to raise a dog. Bordering Lady Bird Lake, the neighborhood features Zilker Metropolitan Park and tons of lush green spaces to spend time out in nature with your pup. Barton Creek runs through the whole neighborhood, lending a feeling of always being out in nature. You can check out an authentic corner of Austin in Clarksville. West of downtown Austin, right near the always entertaining 6th Street and bordering the Johnson Creek Greenbelt, it's home to Treaty Oak, a state landmark as well as the first Whole Foods Market, originally opened in 1979 as the Clarksville Natural Grocery.
