“Nothing better than being greeted by a dog!”

I have owned and loved many different breeds of dogs. I have raised a poodle, an old English sheepdog, a maltese, a pitbull and currently a goldendoodle. They have all been an important part of my life. I taught kindergarten, first, and second grade for 38 years. I am now happily retired. We have 4 children and 5 grandchildren. I have received so much joy from all the dogs that I've ever owned and would love to give back by making your dog happy to be out for an enjoyable walk.

Dog Walking in Northfield

Just forty minutes south of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Northfield is a pooch-friendly community where pups and their owners can get away from the big city. With several parks and forest lands in the area, Fido can enjoy an energetic walk or a day out in nature any time of the week. 

If you need a convenient destination to walk your pooch in the afternoon, Central Park is a relaxing gathering place. You can stroll with your pup and let him sniff the trees and plants, or relax on a bench while watching the kids on the playground. Families who enjoy spending quality time together in the great outdoors should plan a day at Ames Park. The walking trails here are well maintained, and will take you past the Ames Mill which overlooks the Cannon River. 

On your way home, stop by the Contented Cow bar. Relax on the outdoor patio and enjoy a drink with friends. Another pooch-friendly location for lunch or dinner is the Quarterback Club, a casual diner where you can sit with Fido at the outdoor tables.

Keeping your pooch healthy is easy with four veterinarian clinics in Northfield. Whether you need a routine appointment or emergency care, Fido will be cared for with love and affection. If you are looking for a new pet bed, toys, or healthy food for your pup, Chuck and Don’s Pet Food Store offers helpful staff members to make sure you find just what you need. 

Close proximity to big cities with a small-town feel, Northfield is a wonderful place to raise your four-legged family members.
