I'm planning on moving to Houston with the family next year and had a question regarding dogs. I have two big dogs and wanted to know how dog-friendly the city is. Can you walk your dogs in places other than designated dog parks? Are there any national parks where you can walk dogs off lead/leash. Finally, have you moved with your dogs and how have they coped with the heat in summer? We currently live in the countryside where most dog walks are off lead/leash.
I also have a 7 yr old Daughter but think she will have fewer issues adjusting than the dogs.
