Dog Walking in Council Bluffs

Council Bluffs is a city in Iowa that's located along the Missouri River and across from Nebraska's largest city, Omaha. Council Bluffs is a historic place that's home to several museums and other historical and cultural attractions. It's also a very dog-friendly place with lots of accommodations and restaurants where your canine buddy is welcome! You'll find five veterinary clinics right in town, with emergency care available just a short drive away.

If you're visiting Council Bluffs and need a place to stay with your pooch, you'll find some pet-friendly lodging options here. We recommend Country Inn Deluxe, AmericInn Council Bluffs, Motel 6 Council Bluffs, and Harrahs Council Bluffs, but there are plenty of accommodations to choose from.

Hungry? Grab a bite at Barley's, a "striking speakeasy" that welcomes your pup to dine with you. Or, make yourselves comfortable at Uncle Buck's Grill, a delightful restaurant with a nautical theme. Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome at the outdoor seating area.

While you're here, you should make the trip to Omaha to visit the Lauritzen Gardens, which offer 100 acres of breathtaking botanical gardens that change with the seasons. The best part is that your dog is allowed to join you here, as long as she remains on a leash.

Council Bluffs has paw-lenty of amenities for dogs and their owners!

Around 8 miles away from Council Bluffs, across the Missouri River, you can visit the Hanscom Park Dog Park in Ford Birthsite, Omaha. This park has three areas that are open to the public: one for small doggies, one for large doggies: and one for dogs of all sizes. Water is provided by a water fountain, but it's only available seasonally, so you should bring some water if you're visiting during the winter. The park sits on a hill enriched with plenty of trees that provide shade, so it's a very good spot for exercising with your dog. There is a double-gated entrance and the fence is high enough to keep all dogs safe and secure.

Another place that your pup will appreciate in Omaha is the Hefflinger Dog Park, around 20 miles from Council Bluffs. The park allows doggies to enjoy the fenced area leash-free, and the park provides a designated area just for small dogs as well. Since the park features natural terrain of grass and dirt, it can get muddy after a rain, so bring some towels! The park usually provides poop baggies, but you should bring some with you just in case. The double-gated entry ensures that you can safely enter and exit the park. There are plenty of places where you can sit, as well as trees that provide shade.

Jewell Dog Park is a pretty small park located around 15 miles away from Council Bluffs. The park is fenced and has separate areas for small and large doggos. The only thing that you need to remember is to bring plenty of water since this park doesn't have a water source. Also, the park doesn't have trees, so there isn't any shade. Avoid visiting in the afternoon when the temperatures are at their peak. If your pooch isn't feeling up to playing in the enclosed area, you can always head into the main park to explore the wooded trails. Your dog will need to be leashed outside of the dog park.

Twenty miles away from Council Bluffs, you'll find another furrific place to play: Walnut Creek Park Off Leash Area. This park is perfect for those hot summer days since the place includes a pond where your pup can swim off-leash! The park is fenced on three sides, with the fourth being the body of water. However, you should only bring your dogs here if you're sure they're not going to try to escape. Make sure your pooch has good recall skills! There are lots of trees that provide shade, and there is plenty of seating available for tired pup parents. Poop baggies are provided as well.

Chalco Hills Recreation Area is a great place for those of you who want more nature-based walkies with their pups. This area is located in Chalco, and it's a sight for sore eyes! There is a designated area that's fenced on one side where doggies are allowed off-leash. Other than that, leashed dogs are welcome everywhere. You will surely spot some wildlife while you're here, and you also have the opportunity to boat, kayak, picnic, and fish. There are plenty of biking and walking trails throughout the park. You should bring fresh water and poop baggies with you, and let the adventures begin!
