In honor of their Norwegian heritage, the people of Mount Horeb decided in the 1980s that their town would become "The Troll Capital of the World." Local artisans set to work carving wooden trolls and placing them throughout the town, mostly on Main Street.

This quirky town in Dane County, Wisconsin, is also known for being in "The Driftless Area." This geological zone was bypassed by the glaciers that flattened much of the southern part of the state and features gently rolling hills and unique rock formations. The scenic beauty to be found in and around Mount Horeb is probably why the town has a large number of parks and natural areas for its size. This makes it a great place to bring your pup! Mount Horeb also has two veterinary clinics to address your dog's medical needs.

One of Mount Horeb's many parks is the massive 780-acre Donald County Park on the far southern side of town. It's a popular place for horseback riding, birdwatching, and dog walking. Ten miles of trails pass through the varied landscape, which includes a pond, streams, the Donald Rock sandstone formation, prairie restoration areas, and pine and apple groves. The trails are groomed for cross-country skiing in the winter. This year-round park is a perfect place to bring your dog again and again. You will need to keep your pup leashed and bring your own waste bags and water.

Whether you spend your day chasing squirrels or chasing trolls, you and your pup are sure to have fun together in Mount Horeb.
