Have a four-legged family member who hates to be left behind? Next time you schedule a Greater Lansing getaway, bring the pup along.

What will they tell their dog friends all about when they get back home? You never know but it might be something like this:

“Went on a great kayak adventure on the Grand River. I barked at all the bicyclists on the river trail. They waved.” Rent kayaks, canoes or SUPs from River Town Adventures and explore the Grand River. Pictured: Mr. Feeny enjoys a leisurely kayak paddle on a hot summer-y day.

“Hung out in the beer garden last night. Sniffed some delicious food. Heard some tall tales. Requested a doggy bag.” Some of the best breweries, wineries and area restaurants allow dogs on or by their patios. Try Maru Sushi, Midtown Brewing, HopCat East Lansing, El Oasis Food Truck and The Bistro in Williamston. Call to double check as policies may change. Pictured: Murphy thinks relaxing on the sidewalk next to the patio is just fine!

“Won 1st place in the costume contest in Old Town. Followed it up with Yappy Hour at Preuss Pets.” Fun events like Old Town Howl-o-ween doggie trick or treating and the latest…Wiener Walk (for the Daschunds, and weiner-wannabes.)  These are just another great time in Old Town Lansing! Pictured: Tori has a dream to become a road construction foreman and dressed the part.

“The hot dogs at the Lansing Lugnuts game were delicious!” Patrons are welcome to bring their dog to select baseball games throughout the season during the Dog Days of Summer promotion. Pictured: Murphy here is checking out the 360 concourse in between innings.

“I was super quiet in the hotel room. Except for the time at 4 a.m. when that paper came under the door. I killed it.” It’s good to know that at least 20 Greater Lansing hotels accept pets as guests. Even the Nordic Pineapple B&B in St. Johns Michigan has a pet friendly suite!  Pictured: Tori enjoys lounging in bed after a big tourist-y day.Dog in hotel room

“I ran and ran and ran. Then I made some new friends and ran some more. It was great fun.” Greater Lansing has multiple dog parks. If running free and getting along with others is no problem, then day passes to these dog parks are available. The Howard and Erna Soldan Dog Park at Hawk Island Park in Lansing and Northern Tail Dog Park in East Lansing. Pictured: Zak and best friend Charlie enjoy a quiet moment to catch their breath.Dogs

Here in Lansing, we love our pup buddies. So come on out and enjoy along with us. We hope you #LoveLansing as much as we do. Woof!
