And then, just contact a service dog walker while going to a business meeting and let your pet enjoy a tour on Praça Buenos Aires (Buenos Aires Park), located on the Avenida Angélica (Angelica Avenue). The park was designed especially for dogs - has fenced area where they can run free and socialize. Dogs can even walk in the Pátio Higienópolis (Higienopolis Shopping Center) while tourists do their shopping - there, the dogs can walk freely.
Another option for the animals and tourists is to walk at the Elevado Costa e Silva (High Costa e Silva) on Sundays, known as “Minhocão“.
