To bring pup or not to bring pup? Sidewalk Dog is helping you answer that question one city spotlight at a time, and ’twas time to check out St Louis Park.
Here are 11 of SLP’s tail-waggin friendly spots:
- In need of a pawdicure? Lulu & Luigi is one of our fave spots to get a nail trim, no appointments necessary. And if you’re in need of some more planned-out pampering, they’ve got plenty of pawlour packages that will leave your pup feeling perfect. Fair warning to the two-legged kind, you’ll more than likely leave with a toy, treat, or new threads for your four-legged companion too. Woof to the wise: In addition to FREE beer, our Indoor Brewery Pass scores you $10 off at Lulu & Luigi, no minimum purchase required. (Hurry – Passes are almost sold out!)
- Less than a mile away you’ll find Bone Marché, a market just for pets! Adjacent to Lunds & Byerlys, you’ll find quality products and employees who know their stuff. Be sure to check out their events page too to stay in the know about things like upcoming pet nutrition seminars.
- Need a spot for Fido to let off some steam while you’re at work or out of town? Pampered Pooch Playground offers doggy daycare and overnight stays. The best part? You can sneak a peek on their webcams at what your nugget is up to – if you’re like us, we know you’re missing them.
- And if you’re a true Minnesota you’re probably just as antsy as your dog to get some fresh air as soon as the temps climb to 30 degrees. Spend some quality time and let your doggo socialized at either one of St. Louis Park’s off-leash dog parks, Dakota and Cedar Knoll. Dakota Park offers a wide open space tucked into the Bronx Park neighborhood, next to the Peter Hobart Elementary School; water fountains are located nearby for you to fill up a dish for your thirsty friend. Cedar Knoll is tucked away on Nevada Ave, which comes to a dead end. The park is lightly wooded, offering plenty of shade in the heat of summer.
- Looking for a patio to grab some grub? Park Tavern welcomes you and your pup in the warmer months.
- Thirsty for a local brew and some food-truck fare? Steel Toe Brewing also invites your furry friends to their spacious patio.
- If you’re running errands in SLP the Miracle Mile Mall allows you to get quite a bit done with your pal by your side. Hoigaard’s, Half Price Books, Frattallone’s Ace Hardware, and Top Ten Liquors all allow dogs indoors.
