Milwaukee is nicely situated on the southwestern (SW) shore of Lake Michigan and offers several attractions, including the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Pabst Mansion. The city has plenty to entertain both residents and visitors, as well as any four-legged companions that may be lucky enough to accompany them.

Milwaukee County has more than 140 parks and parkways, adding up to nearly 15,000 acres of open recreational areas. The Lakeshore State Park is located on Lake Michigan and features a trail that connects the Hank Aaron and Oak Leaf trails, both of which are also extremely popular with dog walkers, both 'pros' and pet owners alike. As an urban oasis, Lakeshore State Park is a beautiful place where residents and their dogs can relax away from the city’s noise and bustle.

The Residents for Off-Leash Milwaukee Parks (ROMP), founded in 2002 by dog owners in Milwaukee, oversees the official dog parks spread throughout the city. The Granville Dog Park is the first in the county to allow dogs without a leash, though now there are seven such fenced-in areas for your pup to run and play. With its trees and trails, the Granville Dog Park differs from the typical dog park and has different areas for the curious canine to explore.
