Dog Friendly Resort MN – At Dancing Bear Resort Pets are Welcomed!
Dog Friendly Resort MN - Here at our resort Pets Welcome and Dogs Welcome is not just a saying, it is a lifestyle. We do not just ACCEPT pets we truly do WELCOME them. As avid dog lovers (and animals of all sort), we decided early on that Dancing Bear Resort would be a vacation place for all members of the family…two legged and four. We look forward to meeting everyone in your family!
We do not have any size limitations and many of our regulars have Newfoundland dogs, Mastiffs, Saint Bernards, and other large breeds. Of course, we often have a resort full of Golden Retrievers and Labradors. The splashing sounds of dogs practicing their best imitation of Dock Dogs can be heard all summer! CANNONBALL Doggie Style!
While we do not have a lot of rigid rules, here are a few guidelines to make sure your time at Dancing Bear Resort with your dog is a fun time, not just for you, but for the other guests as well.
- Your dog will not ever be the only dog here, as we have our own dogs AND other guests bring their dogs
- If your dog barks or has separation anxiety when left alone, make sure he or she is not left alone
- If your dog does not play well with other dogs, be prepared to keep him on lead or consider other arrangements
We do ask that your dog be well-socialized and if there are any issues we also ask that you respect our request to keep your dog on lead. In our 10+ years here, we have only had to make a handful of that type of request. Steve says that the dogs are smarter than we are and usually work things out and figure things out on their own. Zoe runs a tight ship and she does not tolerate any shenanigans.
We also ask that your dog be current on his vaccinations, rabies is required by law. You may ask your vet about the Lyme vac during the appropriate “tick” seasons in Minnesota.
Also, we gotta say it…YOU are responsible for picking up after your dog. If they do anywhere a human could possibly step in “it”, we ask that you pick it up and dispose of it. We have extra baggies if you need them. Enough said on THAT.
The nominal pet fee is $25 per dog per week. Geesh, that is less than one DAY at the kennel!
A bit about some of the dogs in the slideshow. The Newfoundlands come quite often to practice their water rescue training. Doing what their DNA loves doing! The one in the snow was our Deuce, who is gone now, but still missed. The Frenchie girls in dresses live with dear friends and are subjected to much dressing up.
