Hi, I'm Katrina! I have always grown up with a dog in my home, whether it be a whippet, Boston terrier, Chihuahua, or Labrador retriever. As you can see, I am very comfortable with all breeds and sizes of dogs. I have also spent many hours dog sitting for neighbors. I am very passionate about animals and absolutely adore dogs and treat every one as my own. Can't wait to meet your best friend!
A small town in the townships of Clearspring and Eden, Topeka is located in LaGrange County, Indiana. Not a hustling and bustling town by any means, this location could be your dream vacation spot. Maybe it’s even the hidden gem that you and Fido call home! Either way, it’s easy to see why one would want to spend time in this tiny locale -- after all, it’s a welcome reprieve from some of the busier locations in the state. Although it's small, Topeka is close to some of Indiana's busy metropolitan areas, so it's certainly not in the middle of nowhere!
As much fun as you and your pup can have just going for a nice walk here, your adventurous canine will want to explore some areas of intrigue! For that, just make your way the short distance to Goshen, Indiana. Here, you’ll find two dog-friendly trails and the Robert L. Nelson Dog Park, a fenced-in area where you can let your pup off their leash and let them go dog wild. There’s a separate area for small dogs and even a pond, so just bring plenty of drinking water and some doggy waste bags to keep this beautiful park clean for everyone to enjoy.
A definite must-see on your doggy to-do list is in Central Goshen, north of Goshen College and just off a series of creeks and rivers. That’s where you’ll find the Mill Race Trail, a magnificent multi-use trail that welcomes leashed, well-behaved dogs and, of course, well-behaved owners as well. Since the locale is never terribly busy, you and your canine companion can enjoy a nice walk in the rural landscapes without worrying about being overrun by a bunch of other hounds and their humans. Just be sure to pick up after yourself, and bring some fresh, clean drinking water.
Make your way eastwards in Goshen, and you’ll find another path that can’t be missed! The Pumpkinvine Nature Trail is one of the many trails supported by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that seeks to beautify former railways all across the country. There’s plenty of shade available along this trail, and both you and Fido will get to enjoy the magnificent forest views. The scenery simply can’t be beat, so maybe you can even pack a picnic for you and your pal. Be sure to bring plenty of treats, both the doggy and human varieties. You and your pooch will pawsitively love this trail!
If you and your furry friend are looking for a bit more off-leash fun, your trip should definitely involve stopping in the eastern region of Mishawaka, where you’ll find the Margaret Prickett Dog Park. Featuring two large and fenced-in play areas for both small and large dogs, this park is noted as being very well-kept and clean. Let your pup pal prance through the bunches of bushes and trees, toss a Frisbee around, or simply sit back and relax while your pooch plays. Your dog will have plenty of friends to socialize with, and you may make some friends, too!
If the previous dog parks just aren’t your cup of tea, or if you’re looking to broaden your hound’s horizons a bit, a trip to northeast Nappanee is certainly worthwhile. Just a short drive from Topeka, you'll find Nappanee Dog Park, a local park built and run from community donations. It boasts two large play areas, both of which are fenced in to keep small and large dogs separate and safe. You’ll find plenty of cozy and shady benches to settle on, too. Meanwhile, your canine companion will be doggone ecstatic to meet other doggies to play with! Don't forget to bring water and waste bags.
Last but surely not least, make your way back to Goshen and trek northwards a bit. If you’re looking for the perfect way to unwind after a day of fun, you and your pup pal will be perfectly pleased to check out the Goshen Brewing Company. With twelve craft beers exclusive to this location alone, and a Southern-inspired menu, you can’t go wrong. Choose from your choice of tables out on the open patio, where your dog will be welcomed with open arms. Take the opportunity to toast yourself, your friend, and the fantastic day you’ve shared. Then, it’s bottoms up!
