5 of the Best Dog Friendly Spots in Waukesha County 

Who Took the Dogs Out & Where’d They Go?

Dog Friendly Spots in Waukesha County

There’s no doubt about it, dogs are humankind’s best friend & more than ever – we are looking for places we can relax, exercise, or eat that will allow a canine plus one. So, check out some of our top picks for dog friendly spots in Waukesha County. 


The Tap Yard 

Enjoy a beer garden with your dog by your side at The Tap Yard in Minooka County Park, which happens to be a dog-friendly beer garden in Waukesha, WI. With brews, rotating food trucks, and the occasional live music – it’s a pretty stellar place to relax with your four-legged bud. It is open at select times of the year, so be sure to check before you go. 

Minooka Park also has a dog exercise area on 19 acres with an area for large and small breeds to run & play. 


Kiltie Drive-In 

We know quite a few people are counting down the days until Kiltie’s flags are flying again; we know quite a few pups who are too! 

The Kiltie Drive-in allows both owner and pup to enjoy the warmer seasons while dining on some classics, either in their car or the provided picnic tables. 

Keep an eye on the Kilties Facebook page, where they post as soon as they’re open!


Lapham Peak

At 1,000 acres, Lapham Peak State Park, in Delafield has something for everyone; with cross – country, hiking, mountain biking, and even horse riding trails. Dogs are also allowed to walk the trails, while on-leash. 

If you’re looking to get out in nature and get the dog some exercise – without going to the typical dog park, then this state park is a fantastic spot for you to visit. 

You will need to purchase a day pass for entrance purposes or purchase a year-long pass. 


Nashotah Dog Park  

Nashotah Park has two dog areas, encompassing 18 acres for off-leash roaming and playing. They have a large and small dog (20 inches tall at shoulder or less) exercise areas, to allow dogs to play with other dogs of the same size, with watering stations. 

There are also plenty of trails outside the dog park areas, where dogs can walk while leashed – if your dog prefers a more individual park visit. 


Lucky Mutts Bakery 

Oconomowoc is lucky enough to have its very own doggy bakery & if you haven’t gone yet, it’s certainly worth the trip. With sweet treats, custom creations, and anything else a dog could want, they’ll tell you they need one of everything! 

It’s also located in the back of the building that also houses Roots Coffee Shop, so while you’re picking up some treats for Fido, you can also treat yourself. Then, take your treats and enjoy a walk around Fowler Lake – which is steps away. 


We’re going to be enjoying these dog friendly spots in Waukesha County with our dogs this summer and hope that you will be able to get out & visit them too!
