Enjoy Minneapolis’ beauty while taking your dog along Luce Line State Trail – 1 out of 1,600 rail-trails supported by the Rails-to-Trails Conservatory, an organization dedicated to transforming former rail lines across the country to hiking trails.

"Rachel was my first experience with Wag! Walkers, and I was very happy with the experience! I was able to watch on my pet cam when she picked up and dropped off my pup Sami (nervous first timer!), and then she sent me cute little videos from the walk itself. Sami is a recent rescue, and Rachel even worked on leash skills with her, and commented on it in the report card. I can tell Sami enjoyed herself! Definitely would use Rachel again. "
