Hi! I love all dogs and from my own personal experiences I know quite a bit about them! My household always kept a dog as a part of our family, and I took care of them daily--whether feeding or walking them! I I also volunteered at a local animal shelter in my hometown, and therefore I've dealt with all different breeds and mixes. I will always check to make sure their water bowl is filled and fresh when I leave. I keep the dog’s best interest in mind and I always check the profiles for info.

Dog Walking in Monon

The quaint little town of Monon, Indiana was once the place to be, pawticularly if you were a passenger on the railroad. Back in the 19th century, Monon was a key stop along the railroad -- most trains en route to larger cities like Lafayette and Louisville had to pass through Monon and change direction at the junction here. During the Civil War, the Monon Railroad was so central to the Union Army that Confederate troops destroyed many of the tracks here.

Today, though, "The Monon" route is no more, and the population of the town declined along with the popularity of the railroad. This sleepy spot is named after two rivers which flow near it, and the word "monon" is derived from a Native American word meaning "swift running." It's no surprise, then, that Fido will pawsitively love this place -- after all, running swiftly is one of his favorite things!

The first place you should take your pooch in town is City Park. This is a nice-sized park nestled in the heart of town, and it's home to a playground, pavilions, and a running trail. Just remember to bring a leash with you.

If you're looking for a place to stay, the Dream Acres Campground is pawfect! You can bring your dog and tent camp, park your RV, or even rent a cabin. There are many walking trails all through the park, and you can also enjoy fishing and picnicking with Fido here.

Shamrock Dog Park is located in Layfayette. It's ruffly thirty miles from Monon, but there is plenty for your dog to do! There are two large dog areas and a small dog area. Water is provided in the summer, but you will need to bring your own in the winter. The park also provides doggie waste bags. You'll have to register to play first, though. You can get your day pass at the feed store in town, but you will need your dog's vaccination records. Please remember that you should keep your dog on a leash until you are safely within the fence.

Along the way, you will find authentic and historic canal houses that are pawfect for a photo op! One of the trailheads can be found inside Canal Park.

You can camp at the tent sites along the trail, or set up your RV at designated points.
