Unleash the Hounds 

Show some love to your four-legged friends by taking a paws during your busy day to spend some time with the pups at one of San Antonio's many dog parks. Two popular spots include Phil Hardberger Park West (8400 NW Military Hwy.) and East (13203 Blanco Road), where the mutts can roam off-leash in separate areas for large and small dogs. Perks include obstacle courses and play shelters. McAllister Park Dog Park (13102 Jones-Maltsberger Road), near the Starcrest entrance, is another popular spot where Fido can romp, with exercise equipment, a picnic area, benches and a walking trail. Over at Tom Slick Dog Park (7400 Texas 151), there's an acre of dog-park heaven, with separate areas for large and small dogs. There are benches, picnic tables, a fountain for people and pets, and a special doggie shower for the mud-prone pooches. Dog park connoisseurs shouldn't forget to visit San Antonio's first dog park, Pearsall Park Dog Park (4700 Old Pearsall Road), which has play features all pups will love. All of the above places are off-the-leash destinations for your four-legged loved one; just remember, clean up after your dog and if it gets too excited, do everyone a favor and put it back on its leash.

See the rest of the list.
