Twin Cities: 4 Things to Do With Your Dog This Weekend

New year, new furiendship! We challenge you to make spending more time with your BFF a priority in 2020. Because no matter what this year brings, you can’t go wrong with more long walkos, drooly kisses, and just-for-the-fun-of-it adventures. Finally, a resolution I can keep!

Pupper School @ Bauhaus Brew Labs (9 to 10 a.m. and 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., Saturday, January 11) They’re all perfect angels from birth, but they need our help w/ the whole manners thing! This course for young and slightly older puppers is designed to teach leadership and fix unwanted behaviors such as jumping, barking, potty training, and good ol’ separation anxiety. Hoomans get a free pint per class (Saturday is the first of six), and with your Brewery Pass in paw, you’ll get one extra.

Pet Playground @ Stone Mountain Pet Lodge (12 to 3 p.m., Sunday, January 12) If you need more dog people in your life (or have a furkid complaining he needs more snoots to boop) here’s a great opportunity to find your pack. Just beware – between the epic FUNgility course and football on the TVs, you’ll have a helluva time getting your pup to leave. (Psst: want even more playtime with frens? Sniff our guide to indoor, off-leash meetup groups.)

Pet-A-Corgi @ Boom Island Brewing Company (12 to 5 p.m., Sunday, January 12) The event name sums it up, but if you need more: many Corgis. Smol legs. All the pets. Other dogs may not be allowed in the designated Corgi area (so bring at least one other pawrent or friend to help watch ‘em) but they can enjoy the taproom and give you the full sniff-down after your time slot is over. Again, bring your Brewery Pass!

The Block (9 to 1 a.m. Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays) The Block’s opening was definitely one of our 2019 highlights! We’re sure your pup is tired of reading about it and wants to feel the heated floors beneath his paws already, so if you haven’t been yet, just doo it! Brunch, that is. Just call first to see if the climate-controlled pawtio is open. If it’s not, tell your little mooch to make an Eggo.

Want some exposure for your dog-friendly event this year? Submit it to our calendar and we’ll alert the pupparazzi.
