Most well-known for its array of water parks, amusement parks and various other family-friendly attractions, the small town of Wisconsin Dells is also a purrfect vacation destination for you and your furry friend. From dog-friendly restaurants to numerous surrounding trails and natural areas, there's something in the Dells for everyone! Plus, there are three veterinarians located in the Wisconsin Dells, just in case your furry friend gets in trouble.
Perhaps the most pawesome dog-friendly activity here is taking a tour with the notorious Wisconsin Ducks. As long as your dog is relatively small and behaves well on a leash, they are welcome on this tour of the Lower Dells and Lake Delton area aboard an original World War II-era Dells Army Duck. The Wisconsin Ducks have been providing visitors with an unrivaled and unique tour of the area for more than 70 years, and it's surely something you and your pup won't want to miss.
If you and your pup would prefer to get out of town for a few hours, consider heading to the nearby '400' State Trail located just 25 minutes southeast of the Dells ranging from Reedsburg to Elroy, Wisconsin. This incredible trail was created from an abandoned Chicago-Northwestern Railroad bed, and its namesake comes from the Chicago-Northwestern passenger train that traveled the 400-mile route from Chicago to Minneapolis/St. Paul in just 400 minutes. Nowadays, the refurbished trail offers opportunities for scenic views, ample wildlife and birds as well as unique sandstone formations. Plus, the trail runs parallel with the beautiful Baraboo River.
With so much to enjoy, the Wisconsin Dells pawsitively deserves a spot on your dog-friendly vacation checklist!
