Dog-Friendly Twin Cities Weekend: V-Day Party, Rescue Benefit at Boom Island, and More

Time to make 2020 your bitch! Puppare for Valentine’s Day, spend some bones for a cause, and learn how to buy your first home all in one weekend. (All with your bestie by your side, of course.)

Furever Love at Faribault Woolen Mill Co. (12 to 3 p.m., Saturday, February 8) Nothing says “I ruv you” like a handmade Valentine’s Day card, but they take time to dry (especially when your dog has six boyfriends). You and your pup can craft your hearts out while downing cookies and coffee at Faribault Woolen Mill Co.’s retail store in downtown Minneapolis. The first 20 attendees will receive a Finley’s Barkery treat bag (and first dibs on the Polaroid photo station), so wag over early.

Home Buyer Happy Hour @ Bent Brewstillery (12 to 1 p.m., Saturday, February 8) Tired of your doggo demanding a bigger yard, Jacuzzi tub, and walk-in closet for his ever-expanding wardrobe? This free class could bring you one paw closer to buying your pack’s dream home. Get a free brew for taking the class and another with your Brewery Pass! Look at you adulting.

Silent Auction @ Boom Island Brewing Company (2 to 5 p.m., Sunday, February 9) Bring your Pass and your wallet, ‘cause your furrier half expects you to cover his bids. All proceeds will benefit Rescue Network, so don’t keep him in the doghouse for too long when he goes all in on the gourmet treato basket. (He’s just doing his part for the needy, Karen.) 

Plus an anytime outing:

Burlap & Brass (10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays, 12 to 4 p.m. Sundays) Looking for a unique V-day gift? Sniff down sassy, one-of-a-kind items at this eclectic home/gift/apparel shop. If you’re lucky, Buddy the shop dog will help you select the perfect present. He works commission and graciously shares his treats behind the counter with canine customers.
