I have been walking my friends dogs daily for a few years. I have some extra time in the summer (I am a teacher), so I thought I would expand this to other dogs in the metro area. I am honest, responsible, and trustworthy. I promise to treat your dog as if he/she is my own.

Bay Park is a simple park that offers a lot of open green space that is perfect for a game of fetch, and a walking trail around it for alovely stroll. If you’re looking for a park that has more amenities, then head over to Preserve Park. This space is under an acre, and offers open green space, picnic tables, and play equipment.

Forest Lake is perfect if you and Fido are both foodies and want to grab some tasty food together.

Rice Creek North Regional Park in Hugo is only eight miles out of Forest Lake, and a great spot to take Fido for a great day out. Fido won’t mind the car ride since this park has great amenities, like walking trails and a pond to splash in. While visiting the park, your dog needs to stay on leash. The park offers tons of sand for your dog to dig around in and picnic tables for you sit and watch him have fun. The trails are covered by trees to keep you and your furry friend shaded as you hike, and if you need to cool down, you both can hop in the pond that is in the middle of the park.

The Sunrise Prairie Trial is 4-miles out of Forest Lake in nearby Wyoming. The trail is 16.2-miles long, covered with asphalt, and travels through forests and wetland areas with an abundance of wildlife that Fido will love to see. The trail also offers restrooms and water for both dog owners and doggies. If you and your pup want to continue your hike, the Sunrise Prairie trail connects to the Hardwood Creek Regional Trail. Both trails are relatively unused, so Fido won’t have to worry about too many people bothering him. Be sure your pup stays on leash while you both enjoy the trail together.
