Festive Fido

As the holiday season approaches, don’t forget to include the four-legged members of your family on your shopping list. Dogs like presents just as much as the rest of us, and given how much joy they provide all year, isn’t it right to show our love and appreciation? Whether it’s some extra TLC at home, a trip to the doggy salon or a fun new toy, we’ve got you covered: Everything your canine companion could want or need this winter is right here around Lake Minnetonka.


These Lake Minnetonka Businesses Welcome—and Even Cater to—the Neighborhood Pets

If you’re a pet owner, you know how tough it is to leave your furry family member at home when you go out to grab dinner or run errands. You’re in luck! Turns out there’s a plethora of pet-friendly establishments in the lake area, so you don’t have to spend one more second apart. We talked with some of the pet-friendly businesses in town so you can grab a leash and make a list of places to visit this spring.


A Visit to Minnetonka’s Organic Pet Salon

Step into Woof-N-Whisker pet salon and you’ll not only find shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and cleaning products that are 100 percent organic, chemical-free and eco-friendly, but you’ll also find a welcoming open floorplan.

Behind the reception desk, animals can watch other pets being trimmed, bathed and dried, so they aren’t as anxious about getting pampered themselves. “We seem to have a reduction of stressed-out dogs,” says owner and groomer NanSea Hall.
