I have been married to Travis for 19 years. I have a teenage daughter who loves to play volleyball. I have two dogs, Sadie, a Weimaraner, who is 9 years old, and Bud, a German Shorthaired Pointer, who is 5 )years. My dogs and I go on at least 2 walks a day. The neighbors know me as the dog lady. In the summer I enjoy camping, boating, hiking, and biking. In the winter I enjoy snowmobiling and snowshoeing. The dogs are usually along for the ride when possible.

“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!

“Need a break? I’ll walk your dog!”

Hi all! I have been a dog owner for the last 15 years and I have loved all the dogs that I have come across. I have always had either a poodle or a goldendoodle in my household. I have always been overly excited when I see dogs because they just brighten up my day. Walking dogs is something that I have been doing for years, so I feel that I have the hang of things, from small dogs to the really big dogs. I have no problem walking then in all sorts of weather conditions and places.Dogs are great!

Dog Walking in Prior Lake

The relaxing suburb of Prior Lake is just 20 minutes south of Minneapolis, and features several lakes and parks where Fido will enjoy spending time. Right in the center of town, Lakefront Park is a wonderful destination for families and their four-legged companions. The park covers 130-acres and offers a trail system, fishing pier, and floating boardwalk. You and your pup can spend hours hiking along the trails admiring plants and wildlife while the teenagers have some fun on the hockey rink or soccer field. Younger kids can run around on the playground while you and Fido relax on a bench or the gazebo. If you are spending time at the park during the winter, you will enjoy the convenience of the warming house where your pup is welcome as long as he stays on his leash.

When going out for dinner with the family or friends, take your canine companion to Charlie’s on Prior where the beautiful views of the lake are as great as the food. There is wharf bar seating area where you and your pooch can relax and enjoy a drink. Another option is Trigger’s Bar and Restaurant at the Minnesota Horse and Hunt Club. Pups can dine with their owners at the outdoor tables, and dog bowls are provided by the friendly staff.

If Fido isn’t feeling well, there are four veterinary clinics in the area. These clinics provide routine and emergency care and will treat your pup like one of their own. 

Whether you are visiting Prior Lake from Minneapolis, or you live in town full time, pups will love all of the pooch-friendly activities available any time of the year.

The Cleary Lake Regional Park features one of the best dog parks in the area. The 28-acre off-leash dog park is an amazing spot where your pup can run and play in a prairie type-setting. Pups who enjoy water will especially love the separate fenced pond area where your pooch can splash in the water or fetch a stick. The huge open space is great when your canine companion needs to run off some energy. While your pup is playing, sit on a shaded bench and chat with your neighbors, or walk laps around the perimeter of the park. There is fresh water available during the summer, and you need to make sure to clean up after your pup.

Located off 160thStreet, Memorial Park offers a convenient area to walk Fido and get some exercise. You and your pooch can stroll around the park and admire the well-maintained gardens or let chase a ball in the baseball field. The kids will enjoy hanging out at the playground, and when baseball games are in session, you and your pup can grab a snack at the concession stand and relax on one of the shaded picnic tables. With over eleven acres of space to romp and roam, this park will quickly become one of Fido’s favorites.

Conveniently located along the Cardinal Ridge Trail, the Cardinal Ridge Park offers 42-acres of open space for your pup to run off excess energy. Canines and their parents can enjoy miles of hiking along the Cardinal Ridge Trail that's perfect for a warm summer afternoon, or your two and four-legged kids can chase a soccer ball in the open field of the park. This nature preserve is a great area to learn about native plants and animals and there is a picnic area where you and the family can enjoy lunch with your pooch. You will need to bring your own water bottles and doggie waste bags and help keep the park looking great.
