Hello! My name is Lauren P. During the days I am Special Education teacher for Kindergarten-3rd grade students. I have been an animal lover since birth and have always cared for some type of animal, whether it's mine or I'm animal sitting. I have owned everything from cats to gerbils to dogs. I know that animals are family members, not just pets, and because of this I treat all animals with the same respect I would treat any human with.

Dog Walking in Cedar Rapids

The city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa is known for its love of dogs, and there are estimated to be over 23,000 living there. That means there are plenty of dog-friendly things to do in town, like hiking, parks, restaurants, and hotels.

If you like hiking, the Cedar Rapids Trails offer a variety of hikes for all skill levels with a total of more than 26 miles of trails! The Cherokee Trail is about one mile, and it has fitness stations and plenty of shade. The Cherry Hill Trail is a bit less than a mile and is attached to Cherry Hill Park, which has playgrounds, pavilions, picnic areas, and more. Ellis Trail is almost 3 miles and provides the best views of waterways and nature, going along Robbins Lake and the river where you can see Ellis Boat Harbor. Fido will love any of the trails and so will you.

Hungry? The Dairy Queen on Johnson Avenue NW has outside seating where you and your pooch can have a hamburger, chicken strips, and hot dogs (Fido may not like you eating dogs) and then be sure to end the foodie experience with an ice cream sundae or cone. Remember, no chocolate for Fido though because it's really not good for dogs. Ready to relax? The Country Inn & Suites, Baymont Inn & Suites, Best Western, and Super 8 allow your pooch to snooze inside with you. Enjoy your stay in Cedar Rapids.

Cedar Rapids is the city right on the river. This particular area is home to the Cedar River Trail. There was once a time when this whole area was off limits to dogs and dogs, because it was a very active rail line. As technology increased, the need for the rail system died down. This is where the Rails-to-Trails conservation efforts came into play. They saved this historic area just for you to walk your dog on. Your fur-iend can sniff nature just as it always has been. There are paved and dirt trails for you to walk along.
