“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!

“I look forward to walking your dog!”

Hi! My name is Kate. With the COVID-19 shutdowns this is my only way of income and I appreciate any and all walks. I joined Wag to be able to spend more time with pups and because it’s a great side job. I’m very responsible and patient with animals but also love to spoil them. I have walked dogs before and am excited to be able to schedule on my own with owners, I can’t wait to meet and walk your dog!

Dog Walking in Cottage Grove

This beautiful city sits on the north end of the Mississippi River. Cottage Grove is known for its rail lines and river shipping, which began around 1947. Cottage Grove is also home to the Strawberry Festival, which takes place every year. Fun festivities include live music, carnivals, food, and so much more. People come from near and far to enjoy the Strawberry Festival, making it one of the city's most popular attractions.

You and Fido won't want to miss the WAG Farms Dog Park while you're here. This off-leash, fenced-in dog park is very large, sitting on 14 acres of lush, green grass with several trees for shade. Your pup will get tired just sniffing all the different scents and exploring the fascinating wooded areas! This park is run by volunteers and is very well-maintained. The trails are grassy and some are dirt covered. The land is level, making this walk an easy one, and the scenic view will enhance your visit.

Only staying here a short time? Don't worry! Although there are no dog-friendly hotels here, there are pet-friendly AirBnB rentals where you and Fido can rest your weary heads. Just be sure to check the host's pet policy when booking.

If your pooch loves the water, then this neighborhood has just the place for you. The White Bear Dog Beach is about 24 miles north of Cottage Grove, and is a fun place for your pooch to play. This beach is limited to one side, and your pup is not allowed to go onto the public side. You will need to bring water and something for shade with you, as it can get very hot here. Keep checking the sand; it's soft, but it can get hot and burn your pal’s paws. When your pup is getting into the water, you will want to keep an eye out for rocks to avoid any injuries. If your pooch isn’t confident going all the way into the water, then he can just wade in the shallows to cool off. You and your pup will have a blast at this fun beach!

If you and your pooch are looking to spend some quality time together, this neighborhood has just the park for you! The Battle Creek Regional Dog Park is located in this neighborhood, about 17 miles from Cottage Grove. The park is free to visit, and provides waste bags for an easier clean-up along with water bowls for your pooch. You will still need to bring your own water with you, though. The trees provide enough shade, and there are benches for the owners to sit and watch their pup play. Since this park is off-leash and completely fenced-in, your pup is allowed to run around as much as he likes! If you want to get in some exercise, there are dirt and grass-covered trails for you and your pooch to walk together, provided your pal stays on leash.

Want to spend a little time in nature with your pal? Look no fur-ther than this fun neighborhood. The Woodview Dog Park is located here, about 21 miles from Cottage Grove. Your pup will love exploring all the terrain at this off-leash park. A great feature of this dog park is that there are two different areas to choose from. The area for smaller dogs is completely fenced in, but the area for larger dogs is only partially fenced due to the pond that sits here. Both areas have plenty of grass and shade trees. Make sure to bring water for you and your canine pal, though. And don't forget the doggie waste bags! No one likes a litterbug.

The park stretches about 4.5 acres, which means your pooch can have fun exploring every nook and cranny! Another great feature of this park is that it is totally fenced in, and also has benches throughout the park for owners to rest while their pups play. You will need to bring water for you and your pup because it's not provided here. Grab a ball and enjoy a game of fetch with your pooch at this pawesome park!

Dog parks are great and all, but sometimes, you just want to do something a little different with your pal. This neighborhood, located about 18 miles from Cottage Grover, has the op-paw-tunity for you to do just that! The Vali-Hi Drive-In Theatre is located here, and it's a fun place to bring your pooch! However, he'll need to stay on his leash. If your pooch needs to take a walk or use the bathroom, there's a grassy area just for that. Since this is a pawpular activity, you may find that your pup will socialize with the other dogs here and make some new fur-iends! There is food available, too, and you can also bring your own food to snack on. This is a wonderful place to enjoy a great night at the movies with your canine companion!
