I love animals! I have had pet dogs of all sizes, from a 10 lb chihuahua mix to a 100+ lb Labrador retriever. I currently live in Bay View with my dog, Foxy. I was a member of the Animal Cruelty Task Force in Milwaukee and have presented statewide on the topic of preventing animal cruelty. I've also attended national conferences on issues of animal welfare and cruelty. I'm excited to help you and your furry friend!
Hello! My name is Samantha. I grew up in New Berlin WI. As a kid, my job was to walk the dogs. The area I lived in was great for taking walks on the hiking trails. I currently live in downtown Milwaukee. It works perfectly for my Frenchie Stella and I. We love to go play across the street at the dog park and take long walks by Bradford Beach. My joy in life is animals and am currently looking for more furry companions to love.

The third largest city in Waukesha county and just 20 minutes east of Milwaukee, Brookfield, Wisconsin is the pawfect place to take your pup on your next dog-friendly adventure. From numerous local pet-friendly restaurants to incredibly expansive city parks, Brookfield certainly has something to offer everyone, dog and human alike. Should anything happen to your furry friend on your visit to Brookfield, there are nine area veterinarians who will be more than happy to help!
Start your day at Minooka Park, an area favorite amongst locals. This incredibly peaceful park offers a beach, archery range, sled hill, and hiking trails throughout the surrounding forest. Plus, there is a fenced-in dog run as well, so your pup can burn off some energy before you begin your fun-filled day. Minooka Park is also a great place for wildlife viewing, with locals reporting frequent sightings of white-tailed deer and cottontail rabbits. Come springtime, you may even happen upon a white-tailed fawn during your exploration.
Heading just over 10 minutes east, you can find the Oakleaf Trail, another area favorite. This trail is one of 1,600 trails supported and maintained by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. Once an unused railway, the Oakleaf Trail is now the purrfect spot to go on a nice long walk with your furry friend by your side. The trail's only requirements are that your pup be on a leash six feet or shorter. Be sure to bring doggie waste bags too!
One thing is for sure: the Brookfield area will not disappoint!
Look no further than the charming neighborhood of Brookfield Village to begin your fun-filled day. Located on the western side of Brookfield, this expansive neighborhood includes one of the area's best parks: Mitchell Park. This incredibly 450-acre park offers numerous things to do for the whole family, including your furry friend. Hike on the seemingly endless trails with your pup, passing through scenic wetlands and prairies. You'll have ample photography opportunities here as well as your pup frolics in the natural beauty of the area. Depending on the season, you and your pup may even be able to catch one of the many concerts the park puts on each year in its arts center! Just a reminder: although the park is considered to be an off-leash dog park, the area is not fenced in, so you may need to keep your pup leashed during your visit if they have a habit of wandering off.
Located directly adjacent to Brookfield Village, the Springdale Road neighborhood hosts another local favorite park: Fox Brook Park. This incredible 223-acre park is based around a former quarry and includes a beautiful man-made lake, plus a paved walking trail that winds through the area's wetlands and grassy prairies. Fox Brook Park is simply pawfect for any pup who loves the water. Plus, the water here is reportedly much warmer than the nearby Lake Michigan, making it perfect for swimming during the warmer months of May until September. Again, just remember to keep your pup on a leash when out of the water to ensure no one gets loose, as this park is not fenced in.
Located on the eastern side of Brookfield, the Council Hills/Fountain Square neighborhood is the purrfect place to stop for lunch at a neighborhood favorite dog-friendly restaurant: Portillo's. With more than 10 dog-friendly outdoor tables to choose from, Portillo's is a casual restaurant offering a variety of homemade American cuisine. Their menu consists of various burgers, sandwiches, salads, chili, hot dogs, sausages, chicken, pasta, ribs and more. Just keep in mind your dog will have to wait at the table while you go inside to order, as table service is not included here. Without a doubt, Portillo's has to be on your Brookfield itinerary.
Head roughly 20 minutes east of Brookfield, and you'll find yourself in the Juneau Town neighborhood, home to one of the coolest dog-friendly amenities the area has to offer: Community Bark. This incredible space offers a place for you and your pup to hang out together, drink coffee and unwind, all indoors! Plus, there is also a self-service dog wash as well as a professional dog groomer on-site. Community Bark also offers various pet supplies as well. So after a morning full of hiking and frolicking around the area's many parks, head to Community Bark for a much needed period of relaxation!
Drive just 15 minutes north of Brookfield and you'll find yourself in the Good Hope neighborhood. Here in this beautiful area, you will find the Granville Dog Park, one of the Brookfield/Milwaukee area's most popular dog parks. This expansive, fully fenced-in park will allow your dog the opportunity to run free for hours on end. Walk alongside your pup through dense forests, through grassy open areas, and over hills providing scenic outlooks of the surrounding area. Plus, the Menomonee River runs through the park as well, so if your pup enjoys water then this is the pawfect park for you!
