We don’t know about you guys, but we’ve been relishing all this attention paid to our beloved, dog-friendly town for the Super Bowl this year. Without the Vikings, our interest in the sports-y part of the festivities is pawfully limited. Naturally, we found a way to make it about dogs. (It’s what we do best.)

As it turns out, the Super Bowl is actually doggone perfect for pup lovers. Don’t believe us? Take a sniff:

1. Dog-friendly Super Bowl parties are a ton of fun for you and Fido.

2. The MSP Airport has enlisted lovable, soft-eared therapy dogs to greet Super Bowl tourists.

3. Highly trained dogs are responsible for keeping super bowl crowds safe.

4. The big game gives us the opportunity to showcase to out-of-towners how dog-friendly we are in Minneapolis. (Where else are you going to find a pups-welcome ice bar?)

5. The Puppy Bowl: it’s the cutest game of the year, and it’s coming atcha this Sunday (2pm CST on Animal Planet). PLUS, it’s sponsored by one of the dog-lovingest companies ever, BISSELL.

6. The mother-puppin’, dog lovin’ Super Bowl commercials. Which of these classics is your fave? Tell us in the comments!


We want to know how you and your pup plan to enjoy this year’s Super Bowl! Let us know in the comments, and tag your pics on Instagram with #SidewalkDog.
