Do you and your pupper have a case of cabin fever? Is your doggo not the most social and they prefer to play alone or with a familiar friend? Can’t hack another frigid walk outside? Check out My Dog and Me indoor/outdoor dog park! This privately owned business is an old dairy barn, converted into an indoor agility/play area. There is also a large outdoor play area, too. Book a 45 minute private slot via a slick online booking system. You and your dog(s) then get the private area to yourselves. No competition for toys, no worries about aggression – just lots of romping around.
While the indoor play area is a sealed room, it is not heated. However, it is far warmer here than outside. The floor is dirt, so be prepared for you and your buddy to get a bit grubby. There are numerous agility toys, a tug rope, tub and other fun things for your dog to play with. Or simply let them run free, chasing their favorite ball or frisbee.
An indoor session is $25/45 minutes, outdoor is $15/45 minutes. They do offer bulk rate packages too. These are a bit pricey to do on a regular basis, considering a dog park license is $35 for a year. But if your pup needs to blow off some steam and the weather is inclement, it is well worth the occasional splurge. Clean, well kept-up and close to the East side of Madison.
Note: Fankhauser Rd is a bit hidden. Turn directly after Critters Coral, but before the railroad tracks. The road is essentially a long, private drive to the farm.
