Dog Walking in Newport

Newport, just 45 miles from Spokane and 46 miles from Coeur d' Alene, was given its name in 1890 when it was selected as a landing site for the first steamboat on the Pend Orielle River. The small town has been divided by a political border with the Washington side being called Newport and the Idaho side being referred to as Oldtown, but no one really considers this two towns. Dog friendly Newport has two veterinarians in the Oldtown side of the city who will look after your pup in an emergency or when he is not feeling well.

The community is embedded in scenic natural beauty among rugged mountains and sparkling rivers. An abundance of wildlife will keep you watching the area as you walk. You and your pup will enjoy the Upper Wolf Trail System with its forest of trees surrounded by houses, farms and a highway. The trails are short, and you can hike or ski them in an hour. Bring along a picnic lunch for after your workout to enjoy a little more time in such a beautiful place.

If you’re travelling through the area, camp at the Old American Campground in Newport. It is close enough to walk into Newport for shopping and restaurants, or pick up Fido’s leash and head out on a hike on the camp grounds. Come to Newport for the day or longer; you’ll be glad you did.
