July will be hot and the mosquitoes will be in their prime, especially in the mountains.

Where will the puppy be when you are golfing and hiking? You absolutely *cannot* leave an animal in a car in the summer heat for *any* amount of time!

Oregon has a "Good Samaritan" law which allows any person to enter a vehicle, by force or otherwise, to rescue an animal or child which may be in imminent danger.

Please click on the link below to be sure you understand the law:

Bend is very very dog friendly!

lots of outdoor places to eat and also doggie water bowls

are out and about downtown.

I am sure your dog has collar and id just make sure current and active phone number

just in case he should wander out of the back yard.

Your dog will also love our area lots of walking trails and good smells!!

Enjoy your visit great time of year.

Bend is wonderful in July. And while it is often hot during the day by PNW standards, not sure that it is hot by Texas standards. I'd expect highs in the 80s and 90s. Also, it's high dessert, no humidity and it cools down at night

Thanks for the replies, I had heard that Bend was very dog friendly. And temps in the 80s are wonderful, we've had heat index in the 100s for the last month

You are likely staying off Colorado Ave towards the downtown area of Bend..

You will likely be in walking distance of the festival, there are many in town

during the summer.

Most things in Bend are pet friendly there is a huge 4th of July Pet Parade in downtown

Bend and by that I do mean HUGE. It's a really big deal, great fun and everyone dresses up their

pets, all kinds and joins the parade.

You will be in good area to just walk to it as parking is always limited.

downtownbend.org/events/…

To me most everything is pet friendly here but you may want to check ahead to make

sure it will be be dog friendly and also something you want to take your pup too.

Where you are staying is really the original area of Bend its very "hip" lots of restored houses

and good access to different areas of Bend.

You will love Bend in July. My family lives in Texas and they leave for summer months too!

We spent six months in your state this winter it was wonderful!

Many street fairs in Bend are no longer allow dogs - especially farmers markets, brewfests, etc. Which festival are you planning to attend?

Delaware is a great location - walking distance to area breweries & cideries in the "Box Factory" and surrounding area (Crux, Apex/Atlas, Spoken Moto, Boneyard, Immersion) and an easy stroll to downtown.
