“Excited to meet your pups!”
Hi! My name is Sarah. I grew up with several large dogs (German Shepherds) and was always comfortable with them. I currently have a working breed dog who is very protective and a smaller mutt who frequently pulls because he loves to sniff. I am able to keep both dogs on the trail/sidewalk, know when to keep a short leash and know when to keep my distance. I have a fanny pack with pockets for bags, a spot for a water bottle, and two D-rings to clip leashes to.

Bluffton is a city in the Harrison and Lancaster Townships of Wells County, Indiana. While not a small location by any means, it’s still rural enough to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life in other, larger cities. All the while, it manages to be in close enough proximity to other havens, like Fort Wayne, for you to have a good time with your canine companion. Whether you live here on a permanent basis or are just looking for a bit of rest and relaxation on your vacation, it’s easy to see why this location is so popular with dog lovers and their dogs alike.
If you’re willing to make the trip to Fort Wayne, it’s definitely worth the time. Less than twenty miles away from Bluffton itself, Fort Wayne is home to a number of dog-friendly activities such as dog parks, hiking trails, and dog-friendly stores. Its dog beach is the most notable feature and is located in Fox Island County Park. While not technically designated for dogs, there are several locations where your pup can dive into the water and get their paws wet. Bring along your doggy’s water wings (and a towel!), and get ready for a day of fun.
To start the day off right, there’s nothing better than a nice cup of joe and maybe some sweet treats to take the edge off as well. Firefly Coffee House, in New Kirkwood, is the local go-to spot for dog lovers and their achingly decaffeinated owners. Your pup will be quite welcome on the outdoor deck and patio, and better yet, the multi-talented baker of the coffee shop bakes fresh dog treats in addition to the delicious confections for humans! Grab your dog a nice and warm treat, maybe a cookie for yourself, and enjoy the breezy and sunny morning.
To keep the ball rolling, literally and metaphorically, make the trek toward the southwestern region of Fort Wayne, in Sand Point. That’s where you’ll find Pawster Park, a scenic dog park with two fenced-in play areas for your pups. There are doggy water fountains available, as well as a covered pavilion where you’re welcome to bring a nice picnic or any number of snacks to share with your pup pal and the other park patrons. Be sure to bring enough for the whole obedience class, of course! We all know who the teacher’s pet is, but no need to rub it in.
If you’re looking to burn off a little energy while exploring the great outdoors with your pup beyond the fence of a dog park, make your way east but keep towards the southern region of Fort Wayne in Maumee Terrace. Home to Rivergreenway, this location boasts picturesque scenery and serene trails to walk along with your furry friend. There’s plenty of shade for you to enjoy on this multi-use trail, but be sure to bring plenty of water to keep your pup pal hydrated. Also be sure to clean up any messy mishaps; you’ll want to keep this place pristine for future use.
If you’re looking to buy your furry friend some wholesome treats and fun toys to toss around, make your way towards the northeastern region of Fort Wayne in Frances Slocum. While you’re there, be sure to stop in at a store where dogs aren’t just welcome; they’re embraced! Green DogGoods carries a selection of holistic supplies for your pup to enjoy, as well as offering training classes and grooming services. If you stop here, plan to stay a while. Not only will you have a hard time tearing your eyes off of all the goodies, your dog will be reluctant to leave too!
Make the Poplar area, in the center of Fort Wayne, your last stop and enjoy a selection of brews from Mad Anthony Brewing Company. Offering deep dish pizza as well as usual bar fare like burgers and delicious salads for you veggie lovers, you can’t go wrong in this delightful restaurant. Moreover, your canine companion will be welcomed on the outdoor patio. While it’s not the most scenic location in the world, it’s a nice place to settle in and enjoy a pint with your best pup pal. What better way to wind down after such a long and fulfilling day?
