Graduate teams and volunteer puppy raisers are especially fortunate in Shawnee. Merchants and restaurants recognize the importance of the program and all are very supportive. They are especially great in welcoming the puppy raisers and Canine Companions puppies.
Shawnee has numerous parks which are suitable for exercise and play for both humans and dogs. The new dog park is now open at the Expo Center on Hwy 177. Even though it is new, there are already plans in the works to expand in the near future.
The walking track at the airport (2202 Airport Rd) is also a great place to walk and develop a great relationship with you dog.
In the Oklahoma City area, graduates and puppy raisers have found Bricktown merchants and restaurants to be very welcoming and gracious. They are always willing to assist with seating and make certain you will return.
