Now your puppy love can join in on fun excursions with you and the whole family. I am always looking for places to bring my dog Olive. Since it is just her and I, there are times that I just feel guilty leaving her home alone while I go out and have fun. Needless to say I was thrilled when I discovered these 3 incredible places here in Kalamazoo that allows pets...and they are not they places you think would allow pets.

The Gilmore Car Museum

Who would of that that you can bring your fur baby to a museum but you can! The reported that The Gilmore Care Museum says...

Bring Fido along for a visit to the Gilmore Car Museum campus where you will see historic automobiles, a train tower, a Disney movie set, a 1930s gas station, and several museums. Dogs must be leashed at all times. All dogs are welcome on the grounds, although only dogs that can be carried are allowed in the buildings.


Warner Vineyards

Wine, shopping and your best furry friend spending a day in local wine country? Yes please! said that...

Warner Vineyards welcomes leashed dogs. Just be aware if your pet breaks anything you are responsible. They also have grassy areas along the river. 79 year old Michigan vineyard producing award-winning wines with 100% Michigan grown grapes & fruit. Wine tasting, wine by the glass, and retails sales in our beautiful downtown Paw Paw store.


Al Sabo Nature Preserve

(6310 Texas Drive Kalamazoo)

The best part of taking your pup to this place is the chance for them to run free plus, going into the park is free! claims...

Al Sabo is a nature preserve with hiking and biking trails perfect for you and your adventurous dog! It offers over 8 miles of trails through fields, forests, and wetlands. It is an amazing place to take a long walk with your dog and has a large map at the entrance. The entrance (which is a bit rugged) has a gravel parking lot and the trails are right off of the parking lot. In the summer, there can be ticks and other pesky bugs that can climb onto your dog, so make sure he/she has tick and other parasite protection. This beautiful nature preserve is open all year round, 24 hours a day and is completely free.

I am looking forward to taking my pup Olive and experiencing all these awesome places this summer. Hoping I will see you there.
