Rosedale Center scraps Sunday morning dog walking

The last indoor dog walking will be Feb. 24 from 8-10 a.m.

"Finally! A Mall That Allows Indoor Dog Walking," reads the headline in a Feb. 21, 2018 article from SidewalkDog.com. 

The article, posted nearly a year ago to the day, praised Rosedale Center in Roseville for opening its doors to dog walkers on Sunday mornings, but come this Sunday it'll be last call for the cozy indoor walks. 

Rosedale Center announced Monday that dog walking will no longer be permitted inside the mall.

"Dog lovers: We have loved sharing our Sundays with you. Unfortunately, with our recent renovations and the inability to recover the center before it's open to the public, we have to cancel dog walking."

In other words, not everyone was cleaning up after their dogs went they made a mess in the mall. 

“The main reason we had to cancel was our inability to clean up the mall before it was open to the public," a mall official told SidewalkDog.com. "We didn’t have the time or staff to clean up all of the messes. We also just went through a multi-million-dollar renovation and the messes the dogs would make when their owners didn’t clean them up were beginning to wear down our center.”

Just last month, on Jan. 5 to be exact, Rosedale Center sent out a tweet saying "dog walking for 2019 is back and better than ever!"

The last indoor dog walking day is this Sunday, Feb. 24 from 8-10 a.m.
