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.

“I'll probably give your pooch a sweet nickname.”

The world has changed quite a bit this year and our constant source of happiness has been our pets. For everyone's safety, I'll wear a mask and have freshly sanitized hands before handling any fur babies. I've loved working with Wag! for over a year and have met so many pooches. It's a guarantee they will get extra scratches and treats (if allowed). My eyes will always be looking out for your pups. I can't wait to meet and care for more tail-waggers.

“My name is Gina and I am a dog lover and professional who has cared for animals most of my life. I grew up with a half Doberman/greyhound. I've been volunteering at local shelters for many years. I've walked everything from Chihuhuas to Mastiffs and everything in between. I have experience with shy, reactive, and food guarding pups. My main focus on walks is always the pup. I’m a cautious and calm walker that treats walks as a dog’s time to sniff, have fun, exercise, and explore at their pace!

Dog Walking in Hugo

Situated 20 miles northeast of Minneapolis, Hugo is a quaint town with beautiful landscapes, open space parks, and miles of trails. Fido and his parents can enjoy visiting several small neighborhood parks, or planning an adventure at one of the larger state parks in the area. Several lakes offer the opportunity to stroll pathways around the water and admire the wildlife. 

Oneka Lake Park is located on Goodview Ave and sits between Egg Lake and Rice Lake. You and Fido can spend time exploring the 10 acres of open grassy space, or plan a picnic with the family. The kids will love the playground, and you and your pup can play a game of fetch in the open soccer field.

If you and your furry family members are looking for a fun weekend activity, head over to Applecrest Orchards on 24th Avenue N. This orchard covers 10-acres, and you can walk around the area and choose from a variety of apples while your leashed pooch sniffs all the delicious smells. Kids can feed the chickens or spend some time creating apple-related crafts. While pups are welcome to tag along with the family, you need to keep him on a leash and clean up with your own doggie bags.

Keeping your pup happy and healthy isn’t a problem with three veterinarian clinics in the Hugo area. These offices provide routine and emergency care and will love your pooch like one of their own. Spending time in Hugo gives pups and their parents a chance to explore nature and socialize with friends and their canine companions.

Lions Park is situated next to Hugo City Hall, and features 10-acres of space to walk with your furry family member. You and your pup can stroll along the paths while Fido sniffs the plants and trees, or play a game of fetch in the open grassy area. After some energetic activity, find a shaded bench or picnic table to rest and enjoy a cool drink of water. Kids will also enjoy the skate park or playground, and there is plenty of off-street parking. If you are looking for a longer hike, head over to the Hardwood Creek Regional Trailhead on Frenchman Road. The trail covers 9.5 miles from Hugo to the Washington/Chisago county line in Forest Lake.

Oak Shore Park is located on Exhall Avenue at the northern tip of Bald Eagle Lake. This 10 acres offers a large open grassy area where your pooch can romp and roll around in addition to a paved trail that meanders through a natural area. While hiking with your pup, you can admire the flowers and plants, or sit at one of the picnic tables and relax. Kids love spending time on the basketball court or playground, and the park is perfect for sledding in the winter. Another fun feature in the park is the Community Brick Oven where neighbors can get together and socialize with a meal, and leashed pups are welcome to sit with their families at the picnic tables.

Located about 11 miles west of Hugo in Circle Pines, the Rice Creek North Regional Park is not only a wonderful park for the family, it also features a fenced dog park for Fido. The dog park area offers open areas for your pooch to run and play, and there are usually other pups around to socialize. The double gated entry makes entering and exiting the park safe, but you will need to bring your own water jugs from the water fountain by the parking lot. If you want to spend time with your pup outside the dog park, take advantage of the 15 miles of bike trails. Kids will enjoy the playground, and you and your pooch can relax on a bench and watch them play.

When Fido is looking for an afternoon adventure, travel 4 miles south from Hugo to the White Bear Township, home of the Bald Eagle Otter Lake Regional Dog Park. Your pup can romp and roam over the 12-acre park while sniffing the trees and plants along the way. There are walking trails within the park for some added exercise, and the area is well maintained. Be sure to bring plenty of water if it’s a hot day, and let your pup run off all his excess energy. Outside the dog park, the family can enjoy the playground and picnic area, or bring the boat and take a cruise around the lake.

Ten miles southeast of Hugo, the Gateway Segment of the Willard Munger Trail is in the Pine Point Regional Park in Stillwater. This hiking trail is part of the Rails to Trail Conservancy, and the trailhead is located in the park. You and Fido can spend hours walking along the path through the peaceful natural area admiring the wildlife. You can also detour onto the Brown’s Creek Trail that travels into the touristy section of Stillwater. While hiking, you will probably see other pups out with their parents, and you might also see some equestrians enjoying the multi-use trail. On your way home, stop by Sal’s Angus Grill for some great food and relax at the outdoor tables.
