(Does it count as traveling if you’re only five miles from home? I’m pretending it does.)
Faced with a new house full of boxes and home improvement projects last Saturday, I decided the best way to tackle the tasks at hand was to ignore them. And so, I took Choppy to the local dog park for the first time.
Based on dog-related amenities, I think we chose the new house well.
Jefferson County Dog Park is 109 acres of free-running dog happiness. You can get the exact details on the park at the link, but there are four fenced-in areas, with two each for large and small dogs. The park is about three miles off of I-94, about halfway between Madison and Milwaukee. There aren’t any water features at the park, but there is plenty of room to roam and there are many places to make new doggy friends.
If you want to visit the Park and are traveling between Madison and Milwaukee on I-94, just get off on Exit 267 (Wisconsin 26/Watertown/Johnson Creek) and head south on Wisconsin 26. For those of you who are directionally challenged, that’s the direction away from the Outlet Malls (I know, sad). Just under three miles down Wisconsin 26, you’ll see the signs directing you to the dog park. Follow those, and your dog will be happy!
