“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 Tonka Bay

Tucked between the upper and lower bodies of Lake Minnetonka, Tonka Bay is a small city with an area of about 1 square mile. Because of its location and geography, it has more Minnetonka shoreline than any other similar-sized city. There are no animal hospitals in Tonka Bay, but getting to the closest one in nearby Excelsior would only take 2 minutes by car.

Located next to the city hall and lake, Old Orchard Park is a great place to relax with your four-legged best friend. Take a leisurely, leashed stroll on the paved path along the water, and walk out onto the fishing pier to get a closer look at the view. Picnic tables in the shade are also available on-site, so it would be a good idea to bring snacks and treats for you and Fido to munch on.

Pleasant Park is a park that certainly lives up to its name, with its tall, shady trees and wide, grassy areas. It is the pawfect spot for spending a beautiful day with your pup, whether you're taking a leashed walk in the woods, having a picnic at the picnic tables, or simply hanging out on the grass under the trees.

Tonka Bay's public parks and beaches are off-limits for pooches between April 15th and October 15th, but your furry pal is welcome at any other time of the year. Visit Tonka Bay with Fido and experience life on Lake Minnetonka!

If your pupper enjoys playing in the sand, take them to Crescent Beach. Jointly owned and operated by the neighboring cities of Tonka Bay and Shorewood, Crescent Beach provides a peaceful environment where you and Fido can let your hair and fur down, sunbathe, and enjoy the view. Not a fan of the beach? Head to Manitou Park, which offers access to the 15-mile Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail. Stretching between Hopkins and Carver Park Reserve, this trail boasts scenic views of Lake Minnetonka along the way. Doggos are welcome on the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail as long as they remain on a 6-foot leash and are cleaned up after.

Daily exercise is essential to your furry buddy's health, and taking them to Freeman Park is a great way to make sure they stay active. Just 5 minutes from Tonka Bay, this site in the adjacent city of Shorewood contains paved trails that will take you and Fido around the park and past its several athletic fields. There are also wooded trails that meander through preserved natural areas and a sledding hill that you and your pup can traverse for an extra challenge.

Located across the street from a church and behind a residential area, Cathcart Park in the neighboring city of Shorewood is ideal for spending some quality time with your hound. About 6 minutes southwest of Tonka Bay, Cathcart Park features a playground, picnic tables, and athletic fields and courts. Though on the smaller side, it has paved walkways and open grassy areas that Fido will surely take a shine to. During the winter, Cathcart Park offers an outdoor ice rink that draws skaters and hockey players. Always keep your pup on a leash at Cathcart Park and carry clean-up bags for removing pet waste.
