With 20 parks, half a dozen dog parks and plenty of hiking trails, Duluth, Minnesota is dog heaven. Three of those dog parks were built in the last five years, creating a mastiff improvement for the Duluth dog community, making it one of the most dog-friendly places in the state.

One of the most popular dog-friendly places in Duluth is Minnesota Point; a 3-mile long beach that allows off-leash dogs to run free, has restrooms, waste stations and trash disposal at the parking lot. People and their dogs can play in the water, walk along the beach or take a hike through the trails of the forest.

Head into town to discover A Place for Fido, a locally owned shop with dog goods and treats. The store itself is dog-friendly and sells leashes, toys, harnesses, dog-vests, and more. Every Tuesday there is even a dog-friendly happy hour at the tiki bar, with half off drinks and dog treats.

Don't like the beach? Don't worry, because Duluth has way more to offer in the way of dog-friendly activities that will leave you and Fido feeling exhausted and spoiled! With so many places to choose from and over 13 vetrinarians, howl you know where to pick?
