Event Information

Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

3675 Arboretum Dr
Chaska, MN 55318


Though dogs aren’t allowed in the main gardens at the Arboretum, on this day they’re the stars of the Arboretum’s 65-acre Dog Commons, an on-leash dog trail designed by the Nature-Based Therapeutics experts at the University of Minnesota. Dog owners are invited to come together to walk the trails, heel for photos and meet other dog-lovers. A Pet Expo features 40 pet vendors while events include a scavenger hunt, contests (cutest dog, best trick, best costume, dog-owner look-alikes), doga (dog yoga), agility demos and prizes.

The Arboretum’s Dog Commons area is not “just an on-leash dog trail." It is about the entire experience of being outside in a plant-rich landscape with an animal companion. A goal of the Dog Commons is to inspire a shift from walking the dog as a chore to walking the dog as a mindful and restorative experience that benefits health and well-being for humans and pets.

All dogs must remain on-leash at all times and be up to date on all vaccinations in order to attend the event.
