Woodward, Oklahoma is the pawfect place to soak up the atmosphere of the Wild West. Woodward isn't as wild as it once was -- this former cattle town has seen its fair share of debauchery in its long history. Today, though, it's a pawesome place for pets and their people to call home!
Back before the railroads reached the west, this was where the Western Cattle Drive would end so that the cattle could be sold and loaded up. In the 1950s, iodine was discovered in the area, and the community began to prosper again. It is still a significant source of iodine. The beautiful green pastures are also home to many cattle and farms.
If you want to see some beautiful countryside, then you should take time to enjoy Goetzinger Memorial Walking Trail. This trail system is paved and easy to walk. Bring a leash and doggie waste bags so that your dog can enjoy the beauty as well.
Another pawesome place to visit is Southern Great Plains Research Station. This is also a series of walking trails that are left as natural as possible. You are likely to see deer if you go early in the morning or in the evening. There are wild turkeys here as well. Just make sure Fido doesn't get too friendly with the other creatures here!
Woodward is a pawesome place for dog owners who love the grrreat outdoors.
