Dog Areas in Highland, IL

The story of Highland begins as a Swiss settlement that got its name from the Swiss-German immigrants who settled there. The city was first christened Helvetia, and later, with a vote, the town changed its name to an Anglicized version -- Highland. A fun fact connected to this city is that the inventor of condensed milk, John Baptist Meÿenberg, emigrated from Switzerland to Highland because of the large Swiss population that lived there.

Highland is fairly close to Saint Louis. Travel just thirty-three miles across the Mississipi River to enjoy the urban setting and abundance of dog-friendly places in Saint Louis with your pup.

You won't need to travel out of town to find dog-friendly amenities, though. In case you need veterinary help, you will be able to get it in Highland since the city has its own veterinary hospital that provides many services. 

If you are just stopping by in Highland and you need a place to lodge with your pup, visit the Baymont Inn & Suites Highland. For more choices, you can visit Troy, which is 13 miles away from Highland, or O'Fallon, which is 23 miles away. 

Although Highland doesn't have many dog-friendly restaurants that you can visit with your pooch, O'Fallon will surely have something that you like! In Highland, all your pup's basic needs are covered, but you can sniff out more dog-friendly fun in nearby towns and cities!

    Twenty-three miles away from Highland, there's another option for off-leash doggie fun! O'Fallon Dog Park is located at Rock Springs Park in East O'Fallon. This off-leash fenced area is around 1.5 acres, and it's a great place for puppers who like playing with dogs of all shapes and sizes. (In other words, there's no separate small dog area.) Water is provided in buckets, so if you prefer, you can bring your own water and bowl. Although there is no natural shade, there is a pavilion that provides a bit of respite from the heat. The agility course will keep your doggo entertained!
