Ruff weather outside? No matter what harsh conditions you and your pup are up against, there are plenty of places where you can enjoy exercise and fun indoors together. An indoor dog park gives you year-round options when Mother Nature deals in extremes. Snow storms, brutal heat or Spring showers don't have to stop playtime. Here's a look at five top-notch, climate controlled play date options.
Dogwood Play Park and Bar: Perfect for social hounds and humans, this Seattle, Washington, spot offers the perfect trio, with its indoor dog park, outdoor park and bar. Watch your dog play while you kick back with a beverage. There are separate areas for gentle and active off-leash play. There's even a tennis ball vending machine! Day rates and membership options are available.
Bar K Lab: This canine park in Kansas City, Missouri, occupies a temporary location while the Bar K permanent digs get constructed. However, the interim 16,000 square foot Lab is nothing to sniff at, with a lounge, event space and scheduled fun, including Yappy Hours, Running Club and Doga (aka Dog Yoga). Membership and one-time visits available.
No indoor dog park near you? There are plenty of fun activities you can do with your dog right in your own home. There's no excuse for a weather delay on your doggy date!
