If your pup always has a ball or Frisbee in his mouth, bring him to Purina Farms in Gray Summit. Check in at the information desk to pick up a free visiting pet pack. Then, make your way to the Incredible Dog Arena to witness the high-flying action of the Purina Incredible Dog Team. Fido may learn a new trick or two as he watches professional canine athletes perform feats of skill and agility at several demonstrations daily. When the show is over, stroll through the interactive exhibits, take your good boy on a wagon ride, and stop by the gift shop to pick up some Purina swag. The facility hosts many special events throughout the year, including egg hunts and trick-or-treating. You can even hold a ‘Pooch Pawty’ to celebrate your pup’s birthday.
Located in the middle of Missouri’s wine country, the Best Western Plus Washington Hotel caters to travelers with four-legged family members. After a comfortable night’s rest, wake up and enjoy your morning coffee alongside Fido on the hotel’s outdoor patio. After breakfast, venture out for some fun at Mount Pleasant Estates, a dog-friendly winery in nearby Augusta.
