The Twin Cities has no shortage of outdoor parks and activities to tucker out even the most energetic pups. But Minnesota winters can be brutal at times (heck, even the summers can too!) Minnesotans are a hearty bunch, but let’s face it, there’s no pup parent of the year award for braving a blizzard in the name of fetch. And nopuppy wants to spend an entire day indoors. Escape the coldest and steamiest of days with these Alfie-approved indoor dogs parks.

They’ve got everything you need under one woof including an indoor dog park, snacks, and coffee to make it through the day. Stuck in a traditional office all day?
