Atchison is a moderately sized city in Kansas that lies alongside the Missouri River. Sitting right on the border between the two states, this Kansas city is the pawfect stomping grounds for pups that like to lead a low-key life. In town, you’ll find a handful of services where you can take Sparky to get some hearty food and even veterinary services! For everything else, you can make a drive out to Kansas City, Missouri (or Kansas City, Kansas – they’re right next to each other!).

Pet parents can find a ton of essentials here, including Atchison’s first doggy park! Downtown Atchison pedestrian mall is full of beautiful architecture rich with history. Plus, you can visit the open-air Farmer’s Market held on Main Street. Afterward, wag over to one of the many community parks in Atchison, like Jackson Park, and check out their walking trails! Atchison has plenty of nature to explore – but be sure to keep your precious pup on a safe leash. 

With breathtaking views of the Missouri River and traditional, tree-lined streets, this beautiful brick city is flush with history and cozy community comforts. The area has a nice mix of young adults and families, thanks to the Benedictine College on the west part of town.

    #2 Xavier

    Follow the Missouri River south about 25 miles and you’ll find the city of Leavenworth, Kansas. Xavier, a small religious neighborhood in the southern end of the city, is home to community rich with principles and values -- pawfect for a family looking to settle down with fur-kids (or human kids!). Sparky and friends will especially love the Waggin’ Tails Dog Park within walking distance. Here, they’ll have six acres of off-leash park to enjoy, separated into three sections. After you work up an appetite, grab a bite on the pet-friendly patio of the Metropolitan Steakhouse. Be prepared for some doggie drool!

    #4 Pomeroy

    Just below the bend of the Missouri River is the small neighborhood of Pomeroy, KS. This village has been around since the late 1800s, and its close proximity to the Wyandotte County Lake makes it an excellent destination. For the outdoorsy person and their pup, Pomeroy is heaven! Within walking distance from the center of the little village is a myriad of nature paths and trails that you can explore. On the other side of the lake is the Leash Free Dog Run. This open space has no fences or real markers, but it is a great spot for hot summer days, since Sparky is welcome in the water.

    #5 North Lawrence

    Welcome to North Lawrence, Kansas! About an hour out from Atchison, this neighborhood is aptly named for its location in the northern end of Lawrence. Plus, it happily welcomes dog-owners and their four-legged friends! In this neighborhood, you’ll find beautiful views of the Kansas River sandwiched between two parks on either side: Burcham Park and Riverfront Park. The latter actually falls in North Lawrence, and even has an off-leash dog park where Sparky can socialize and get some much-needed exercise. Lyons Park is a public park also located in Lawrence, but pets will need to remain leashed at all times when visiting.
