Fun Dog Events and More Space

In July, the Currie Park dog exercise area went from 2 acres to 10.  The fencing and wood chips are down and it can handle many more doggies.  Go check it out!  There are 5 dog parks in the county system currently.

We don't have a dog, but take every opportunity to find them and give a hug or 2

Riverwest neighborhood will soon have a dog park too.  It has been under construction, as it was a lot owned by Johnson Controls that needed remediation.  The dirt was contaminated with chemicals and was replaced by good soil.  Now the grass needs to grow in enough to make it useable.  It will be located at the city block between Concordia and Auer Avenues and Bremen and Weil Streets.  You can follow the Milwaukee Dog parks website for more information as it happens. 

Whitefish Bay is hosting their Dog Days of Summer this Saturday, August 24 from 9:30-2.  Bring your favorite pooch downtown and get free stuff and advice about dogs. Stop by the Farmer's Market and the theme will be Dogs also.  

Lynden Sculpture Garden does a dog day once a month on the 3rd Saturday from 12-5.  For their schedule, check the Lynden Dog Days link.

Don't miss out on the big summer pool event for dogs- the Doggie Dip!
