I brought my dogs 8 years ago. They are indoors dogs and that's it. Actually right now it's too hot for them even in the shade. During summer it's going outside to do their business and back inside again (Golden Retrievers). They run around in the backyard in the evenings and get their exercise that way.

I don't know of any lighted parks or trails for dogs. DFW is one of the least pedestrian-friendly cities I've lived in.

Dog park tends to be really popular very early in the morning, say 7ish. There are a lot of great dog owners, but a lot of not so great dog owners as well. If you go to North Bark do watch out for the entrances to the different areas, people seem to not be mindful there. I've seen several dogs get loose because people are being neither patient nor mindful.

There are some good doggie day cares in the area. The one we take our dogs to is around $15-20 per dog, depending on the package.

I have a 150 lb Newfoundland that looks like Sasquatch. She has trained me to take her out every day, which I do. In the summer, usually early in the morning or after 830 at night. Occaisionaly I take her out in the day in the summer time, just not for that long.

We have a collie and he does suffer in the heat. He is mostly an indoor fellow and goes out with me early in the morning or around 9pm at night for his final walk of the day.

Sounds like it will be a boring new life for her. ExAstris, what do you mean by least pedestrian friendly? Does this mean there aren't many sidewalks, or is there just too many busy streets with no sidewalks or what? I do like to walk a lot both with and without my dog. This is distressing news. Well I hope that the trails will be enough for me. There must be a ton of knuckleheads in Dallas that leave their dogs outside and in hot cars why posters keep mentioning it. I'm thinking its like COMMON SENSE not to do that.
