After your romp, head to Skooters Roadhouse for some delicious barbecue. You’ll love the ambiance of their outdoor seating area, especially because leashed dogs are welcome there, too.

In the event that your pet needs medical attention or just a yearly check-up, Shorewood has four veterinarian clinics to care for your furry friend.
