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.

Greendale is a village in Milwaukee County, 11 miles southwest of the city of Milwaukee, and a lovely little spot to visit with your pup.
For your first outing, Scout Lake Park is a great pup-friendly place
to visit in Greendale. The wooded park features a paved 0.5-mile path circling
the large fishing lake where you can take your dog for a walk and take in views
of the nearby city. There is a pavilion available for rent here, or stretch out
on the grass for a casual, impromptu picnic with the family. The kids will love
the little playground and there is plenty of space to kick a ball or run around
College Park is just south of Scout Lake and spans over 22 acres – plenty of room to go for a walk, jog or just have a play together. There are two playgrounds here, plus ball fields and tennis courts. Sherwood Park is another great green space to check out in Greendale. Smaller than the other parks, Sherwood Park features a fantastic walking trail where you can leash up your pet and take a walk together.
For a pet-friendly place to eat in town, head to National Bakery and Deli where you can sit at one of the outdoor tables with your pup by your feet. Freshly-made breads and rolls are on the menu each day, along with a selection of sweet delights such as cookies, doughnuts, muffins and tarts.
These are just a few things to do with your dog around Greendale - there are plenty more trails, parks and places to visit!
Just north of Greendale in Greenfield are some great places to grab a bit to eat with your pup in tow. The Brass Tap has classic pub-style meals that are sure to leave you feeling satisfied. They have an impressive list of cold drinks, including international varieties and allergy friendly options. Noodles & Company is the place to go for a casual Asian-style meal, or TGI Fridays for an American diner experience. Panea Bread is close by for a quick and healthy sandwich, wrap or salad. For something sweet, check out Daddy Yo's Frozen Yogurt. All of these places welcome pets at the outdoor seating areas.
The Oakleaf Trail (Old-76
Bike Tour) passes through nearby Franklin, just south of Greendale, and is a great place to bring your pup for
an on-lead walk. The whole trail is an impressive 120
miles circling the city of Milwaukee and is one of the 1600 nationwide
Rails-to-Trails Conservancy projects. Keep a track of how far you have walked
as you will need to turn around at some point! The path is paved and easy to
navigate, which makes it an incredibly popular trail for walkers, runners and
bike riders, so keep a look out for other path users. Pup needs to stay leashed
and bring water for you both and a stash of waste disposal bags with you.
The nearby town of Greenfield’s largest park, Konkel Park, is a
lovely pet-friendly green space to visit with your pup for a picnic lunch and
little on-lead walk. This well-appointed and beautifully maintained recreation
area has just under a mile of asphalt path running through the park with
connectors branching into the surrounding suburban area. There is a short
boardwalk over the wetland with an overlook that offers great views and
educational signage along the way to stop and take in. Konkel Park also has a
concession stand where you can purchase drinks and snacks, restrooms and
shelters, as well as a playground, exercise stations and a ball field.
The wooded Whitnall Park in Franklin is another pup-tastic place to bring your pet for some fresh air and exercise. There is an extensive nature trail system through here where you can spot an array of beautiful native plants, seek out the bird blind and stop for a look at the Whitnall Lake waterfall. You must keep your dog to the trail and on a lead at all times here. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in picnic areas or the Wehr Nature Centre which shares the grounds. Bring water for you both and always clean up after your pet when out and about.
Falk Park in the town of Oak Creek is a beautiful little park with a nature trail through beech-maple and oak-hickory forest and is a popular place for dog walking. A grassland bird habitat provides another contrast in landscape and the chance to spot some rare and beautiful local creatures, and many of the plants in the area are state-listed and rare species. Picnic benches give you a pleasant place to stop for a bite to eat or a rest to admire the surroundings. Dogs need to stay leashed and make sure you pack your waste bags, water for you both and some bug spray if visiting in the summer.
