I have been married to Travis for 19 years. I have a teenage daughter who loves to play volleyball. I have two dogs, Sadie, a Weimaraner, who is 10 years old, and Bud, a German Shorthaired Pointer, who is 6 years. My dogs and I go on at least 2 walks a day. The neighbors know me as the dog lady. In the summer I enjoy camping, boating, hiking, and biking. In the winter I enjoy snowmobiling and snowshoeing. The dogs are usually along for the ride when possible.

“I want to meet another 4 legged friend!”

I don't remember a time in my life when I haven't had a dog! My experience ranges from having dogs on a farm to my current urban life with my 13 year old boxer lab mix. I love to explore Minneapolis with an enthusiastic 4 legged friend!

Dog Walking in Bloomington

Home to the Mall of America, Bloomington is not only a great place for shopping, it is also a wonderful pup-friendly destination. With over fifty parks and trails, pups and their parents can always find an adventure on a beautiful day. 

Brookside Park features 22.5 acres of space to play with your pooch. The park is known for its hockey rink and ice skating in the winter, but provides a perfect space to walk Fido during the summer with off-street parking and open fields.

Families can also take advantage of the 14,000 acres of woodland area and trails in the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge stretches along the Minnesota River from Bloomington to Henderson, and allows pups to sniff all types of plants, trees, and wildlife. Walking along the trails with you pooch offers a peaceful oasis to get away from the noise and crowds of town.

Exercise is just one way to make sure Fido stays healthy, but you may also need the services of one of the four veterinarian clinics in Bloomington. You will not need to look far for your routine or emergency care to take care of your furry family member.

There are several excellent eateries where your pooch is welcome in Bloomington, including Bruegger’s Bagels. You can stop by in the morning for a healthy breakfast or lunch, and relax at one of the outdoor tables. Another option is Gyropolis where you can enjoy Greek cuisine with your pup on the outdoor patio. If you are looking for a treat for Fido, stop by Just Dogs! In the Mall, and pick up some yummy snacks from the friendly local owners. 

Pups and their family will enjoy all of the pooch-friendly activities available in Bloomington.

A great option for walking Fido in the Central Park neighborhood is the Nine Mile Creek Trail that actually spans almost 15 miles from Lake Minnetoga to the Minnesota River. The north part of the trail begins in Moir Park, meanders down through Central Park, and ends at the Minnesota River. The trail is flat and easy to hike, making it great for the entire family. You can find places to rest in Moir Park with benches and restrooms, and continue hiking while your pooch has a snifftastic time in the grassy areas. This is a pupular destination for canines, so you will probably see your neighbors out with their furry family members.

Fido will love spending time at Tretbaugh Park off W 90thStreet. There is an off-leash area for your pooch to run around during the summer months, but the broomball rinks are used for hockey during the winter. Although the fenced area is small, your pup can play and chase a ball to use up some energy. If you want to take your pooch hiking, head north and visit Girard Lake Park. You can walk the path around the lake and let your pup sniff nature, and watch the ducks and frogs along the banks.

One of the best features of Bloomington is the Hyland Lake Park Reserve in West Bloomington. With 2,565-acres of space to walk and play with your pooch, it is a great destination for a weekend with the family.  Strolling around the lake offers your pooch a chance to stretch his legs, and you can watch the disc golfers play on the nearby course. The kids will love the playground, and you and Fido can relax on a bench after walking the trails. On the way home, stop by Parma 8200 where you can order dinner and have a cocktail on the outdoor patio.

Fido and his friends will love meeting up at the Bloomington Dog Park on Nesbitt Ave. The 25-acre park features grassy hills where your pooch can romp and roam, plenty of trees to sniff and smell, and a pond for pups who love to splash and swim. The open areas are perfect for a game of fetch and you will enjoy chatting with other pup owners while relaxing on one of the shaded benches. Doggie waste bags are provided, making it quick and easy to clean up after your pup. You can even fill Fido’s water bowl at the water fountain and wash his feet before heading home.

Just off Emerson Ave in Central Bloomington, Bryan Park offers 22-acres of space to walk Fido and spend time with the family. The baseball fields are great to play a game of frisbee with your pooch, or you can walk around the park and admire the gardens and trees. The naturalized pond is fun if your pup likes to sniff wildlife, and you can relax on one of the benches and watch the fishermen. Kids can enjoy time at the playground while you and Fido have a snifftastic adventure in the grassy field. If you need a snack while you’re out, stop by Caribou Coffee and order a latte and some cookies, and relax with your pup at the outdoor tables.
