Don’t leave your dog inside all winter, give them a little extra love and attention by involving them in your weekend fun. Get out and explore great dog-friendly activities with your four-legged friend this weekend in the Corridor!
1. Pick up a scent
Head down to the Sac & Fox trail where you and your dog can enjoy a walk along the trail. You’ll be near the Indian Creek Nature Center where you’ll see beautiful scenes of woodlands, wetlands and prairie. Snap some photos of your furry friend with the scenic backdrop.

2. Give your dog a bone
When’s the last time your pooch got a new toy or treat? Take them to pick out something new at Leash on Life, a pet store with locations in North Liberty and Iowa City. There are all types of toys and treats, they’ll love sniffing along the aisles until they find something that they can’t stop wagging about.

3. Run with the big dogs
Let all your friends and their four-legged friends know that you’ll be hitting up K9 Cola, the 11-acre fenced dog park in Marion, to run off some energy. The main off-leash area has plenty of room (8.1 acres!) for your pup and their friends to frolic around in the grass. There is a walking track, benches and small shelters for the humans to enjoy as well.
