Dog owners should be courteous and responsible when visiting off-leash dog parks. Most parks require all dogs to be licensed and current on vaccinations. As a result, puppies younger than four months are not allowed in dog parks, as they have not yet received their full dose of shots. Dog waste bags are provided at some parks, but always bring your own just in case bags aren't provided or the supply has been used by other dog owners. Be kind and pick up after your pet.
Below is a list of off-leash dog parks in western Iowa. If we missed any parks, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will update the list. It's prudent to contact the park's manager, usually the city parks and recreation department, to inquire about specific rules and regulations.
The parking lots and sidewalks were updated in 2022. Come admire the entryway with chainsaw carved dog likenesses carved by known artist Jeff Coss of Bear Grove Chainsaw Carvings! More carvings coming in 2023!
