Pets have brought us a lot of comfort this year, so if you’re looking for some suggestions on how to give back, the Chippewa Valley has got you covered. Take your pooch to the Eau Claire Off-Leash Dog Park (4503 House Road) for some fun in the sun. River Prairie Park (1419 Front Porch Place, Altoona) offers an alternative with winding trails and twinkly lights. With a statue dedicated to dogs, Phoenix Park (330 Riverfront Terrace, Eau Claire) is a great place to play Frisbee or fetch in the grassy lawn with your No. 1 pal. –Ashly Curtis
