Put on your walking shoes, leash up your friendly Fido and head to Fredericksburg where 150 shops stand ready for your visit. Many shops are Fido-friendly and should your four- legged companion need a respite while you soldier on to boutiques and restaurants, simply saunter over to Dogologie where doggie products line the walls and where for an hourly rate, you can crate your furry companion at The Dog Pause.
Where else can you shop till you drop and when Fido is not allowed in a certain establishment have him cared for right in town? Located inside Dogologie, The Dog Pause offers an affordable place to safely leave your dog while you enjoy all that Hill Country has to offer. This is especially important should you wish to visit the National Museum of the Pacific War. The six-acre museum boasts interactive exhibits serving as reminders of the war with heart wrenching stories. Reservations at The Dog Pause are suggested for the weekends.
Flora and Fauna
You and Fido will love the eye candy over at Wild Seed Farms where you won’t forget to stop and smell the flowers. Beautiful rows upon rows of flowers grown on acres of open fields prompts you to visit the garden shop to purchase a little bit of Texas to take home and grow your own. Dine al fresco with Fido at Brewbonnet Biergarten and experience domestic beer and Texas wines with specialty food products and sandwiches.
