Dog Areas in Paw Paw

Paw Paw is a village that was named after the pawpaw trees that historically grew down the Paw Paw River. Nowadays, they are very less likely to survive in that climate because they require a lot of shade and shelter from open, sunny fields. The primary agricultural good that this rural location produces is grapes, which are mostly used in the wine industry. If you are a wine lover, you should definitely take the time to visit Paw Paw's Warner Vineyards. The best thing is that you can take your leashed dog along with you while you try different types of wines!

Surprisingly for its small size, the village has two veterinary clinics and services that will take good care of your pooch in case of an accident, emergency, or injury.

If you're planning on spending a couple of nights in the village in the company of your pooch, you can check the Econo Lodge Paw Paw. If you want more places to choose from, there are more than 25 dog-welcoming accommodations less than 20 miles away in Kalamazoo. 

If you feel like relaxing and enjoying a cold one with your pooch by your side, visit the 120 Taphouse & Bistro, where you can enjoy a wide variety of local dishes and drinks.

    In case you would enjoy more a natural environment with trails and scenic views all around you, we recommend that you leash your pooch and head straight to Al Sabo Nature Preserve, around 16 miles away from Paw Paw. The preserve is open all year long, and it's completely free! It has long trails that you and your pooch can explore. At the entrance, you will see a map of all the trails, and there is a gravel parking lot as well. If you decide to go there, make sure that your pooch has up-to-date tick and flea treatment -- locals note that bloodsucking bugs are a problem here!

    A nice trail that you can tackle with your pooch is the Kal-Haven Trail in Sesquicentennial State Park, located in Bloomingdale, around 16 miles away from Paw Paw. Your dog is allowed on the trail as long as you use a leash. This trail is fairly long, around 34 miles, and it follows an old rail bed. Along the trail, you can find parking and convenience stores in case you need something. The trail is not paved, but it shouldn't be a problem since the trail is moderate and filled with lush trees that provide shade. Bikers and horses use this trail as well, so make sure your pooch is a team player before heading there!

    Prairie View Dog Park is located in Vicksburg and offers seven acres of fenced space where pooches can hang around and get their daily exercise. The park is mostly covered in grass and has a wooded section that provides some nice relief from the heat. There is even a walking trail through the wooded section that doggos can explore with their human pawrents. If you have a pup under 25 lbs., there is a separate area where they can peacefully play with other, smaller fur-babies. If you go to this park, you will have to either pay for a daily pass or purchase an annual pass.
