Best Adventures for Your Dog in the Southwest Metro this Summer

While we may see snow and chilly weather at the moment it's important to do some Minnesota summer dreaming. Prepare for your best summer yet with your pup now! We've compiled some of the hottest dog friendly businesses to check out this summer around Savage & Prior Lake.

Prior Lake has one of the best Farmer's Markets around the MN metro. Dog friendly in all spots and you will see plenty of fun pups around on leash! Not only is produce available at this event, but many times live music is there and a breakfast truck or pop into Edelweiss Bakery for a donut. Crafts, local tasty eats and groceries for later of course. Local shops for fashionable clothes and jewelry are open too! Many of the local shops nearby welcome pets in as well, but may be best to ask before entering. Open Saturdays 8am-12pm in downtown Prior Lake and bring your leash!

Pop in for a pint with your pooch on McHugh's dog friendly patio in Savage. Lovely ambiance with their outdoor space here. Grab a beer, a soft pretzel and follow up with one of their tasty burgers. Patio space is fenced in and pooches stay on leash. Water bowls are available by request.

A great way to boost your dog's favorite dog park with some beautiful shrubbery or flowers. Let Fido pick out his own landscape feng shui while you decide on annuals vs perennials this year. Lots of lovely garden knick knacks to shop through too!

Come enjoy some fantastic BBQ and craft cocktails with your best fur buddy while enjoying a cool swanky patio on a summer night. Delight yourself with an order of Inferno Steak Tips and choose from the expansive Whiskey list. Wine, beer and other cocktails also available along with a wide ranging meat selection. Watch out for the Bourbon and Bones event which includes a whole menu just for your pups and a cutest dog contest!

Cleary Lake Dog Park in south Prior Lake has been a great addition to the area for decades. The 28 acre off leash area also boasts a fenced in dog pond, great for those water bound retrievers and hunting dogs! Lots of great trails, scenery and space for a good game of fetch. Please note a parking pass is required to use this park. Annual and day passes are available via the Three Rivers Park District's website.

Stop over on a sunny day with your favorite furry friend to sit on the lakeside lower patio. Enjoy one of their tasty Walleye Taco's or try a Chuck's Deluxe pizza as the boats drive by. The craft beer menu is quite the selection too! Water bowls available by request. Be prepared for some camera ready views for your pups instagram account here!

Located just off 154th and Hanrehan Lake Blvd is a 3 acre off leash fenced area near a scenic Hanrehan Lake. Easy to get here! Plenty of parking here and good tree coverage. Parking pass is available through the Three Rivers Park District.
