Off Leash Dog Parks

If you’re a dog lover like we are, you don’t consider a move without contemplating neighborhood amenities for your dog.71987_1568626928327_1015074903_1619917_6735440_n

In considerations for a move recently, one of us had a bit of a time trying to locate most of the off-leash dog parks in the twin cities metro area.  After collecting some information we thought we’d share.

Remember that some of these parks require passes, dog licensure and all have rules so be sure to do your research!  Most cities have some kind of requirements but here are Saint Paul and Minneapolis dog requirements:
