“You love them and I'll walk them”

Hi, my name is Jackson Smith. I am attending the University of North Dakota to study aviation. Dogs have always been a major part of my life, currently having two pitbulls as well as a history in dog sitting for friends when I was younger. I have lots of experience with all kinds of dogs, and would love to meet your furry friend!

Dog Walking in Grand Forks

The gorgeous city of Grand Forks rests along the west shore of the Red River, which also doubles as the border between North Dakota and Minnesota. The area is surrounded by thick woods and old, used up farmlands dating back to the agricultural days of the city. Named after Les Grandes Fourches, a French fur trading post from the 1740s, the Grand Forks of today has expanded into a thriving city, with old farms converted into parks, four veterinians, and a love for pups for more than just their fur!

To show how much the city loves its four-legged pals, they have a designated dog park called the Lincoln Dog Park. The park is surrounded by tall trees that offer plenty of shade along the edges, and a large area to run around in. The fenced-in park also includes amenities like water fountains, clean-up stations, and benches. The dog park rests inside the larger park of Lincoln Drive Park, a forested park with walking trails, picnic areas, fishing spots, and a playground. Leash up Fido to enjoy over 1.2 miles of paved trails outside the dog park.

Central Park is a scenic area in the bend of the Red River. With oak trees lining the perimeter, and a small fishing pond in the center, the park brings in a lot of people and pups. To accommodate the dogs coming into the park, the area has amenities like walking trails, water fountains, benches, and clean-up stations available for leashed dogs.

From natural to well-kept parks, Grand Forks has everything a pup and their human needs to enjoy a fun day outside.
