Hi! I'm Carly! I grew up in the Madison area with an English Springer named Elliot. I grew up walking him and I currently have an English Springer named Ellie and a Rat Terrier named Sammy who love to go on walks and runs.
Just a short 20-minute drive outside of Wisconsin's capital city, Waunakee, Wisconsin is another up and coming dog-friendly city that is sure to provide you and your pup with endless fun. Because Waunakee is so close to incredibly dog-friendly Madison, you and your furry friend can enjoy all the area has to offer, without being confined to city limits. Take advantage of one of the local dog parks, or head to one of the many nearby eclectic neighborhoods with countless dog-friendly activities for you and your pup to partake in. If your pup gets into any trouble during your visit there are two veterinarians located right in Waunakee, plus more than 15 in the surrounding area.
As you get yourselves acquainted with the beautiful Waunakee area, begin your visit at the town's premier dog park: Yahara Height's County Park. This incredible 20-acre dog park features large grassy expanses as well as waterfront access for all water-loving pups. There are even two piers stretching out onto the water allowing for epic games of water fetch-and-retrieve.
If the city is more your style, head 20 minutes south to downtown Madison to enjoy all of the local pet store boutiques. One of the area's most popular stores, Nutzy Mutz & Crazy Catz, is perhaps one of the best local pet supply shops in all of Wisconsin. This cozy yet well-stocked store has everything from holistic, local food and treats to chew-proof toys and everything in between! Plus, the store is located just a few minutes from another nearby neighborhood dog park!
Without a doubt, there's something for everyone in "the only Waunakee in the world."
