I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment. Due to a heavy school schedule I had to leave that job but now that Wag! exists I can still work with pups!

I am a semi retired professional with a passion for animals. Growing up on a farm in North Carolina I was exposed to a lot of dogs: hunting dogs, house dogs, guard dogs, herding dogs, etc. The advantage of living on the farm was that you got to play with the working animals when they weren’t working and I spent a lot of time with dogs learning valuable lessons of how they interact with people and other animals and how they think. All through my life I have been around dogs and cats. I have owned three dogs of my own and have had relationships with other dogs belonging to roommates housemates and neighbors. I am very attuned to the challenges of having a pet in the city and understand the importance of seeing that the animals get the proper attention and care. Caring for dogs is not just a job for me it’s a passion and it’s important that I give each dog I encounter the same attention that I would give my own dog.

Dog Walking in Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights is a suburban paradise that offers the services and amenities of a smaller town only 25 miles from the heart of Chicago. The area deserves a visit whether you’re just passing through, looking for a new place to live, or you’ve lived nearby all your life and never been. Dogs are loved in Arlington Heights--which, despite its size, supports eight animal hospitals and veterinary practices! Dogs also love to be there. Just ask the canines dining outside at Arlington Heights’ premier upscale Mexican restaurant, Salsa 17.

Taking your dog for a walk couldn’t be easier than heading down to Methodist Park. The park’s main feature is a large baseball diamond, but the park also offers short walking paths and a great, grassy picnic area. It’s a good oasis of green in a crowded urban space!

Once you’re full, head to bed at one of Arlington Heights’ pet friendly hotels. The Doubletree by Hilton Chicago Arlington Heights, Motel 6 Arlington Heights, and Redroof Inn Chicago O’Hare Airport Arlington Heights all allow your dog to sleep over with you without a pet fee. If you have a small dog and don’t mind a small extra fee, the Comfort Inn Arlington Heights Chicago is a great place for you to go.

Inside the neighborhood of Pioneer Park, there’s an actual park also called Pioneer Park. This park is an incredible asset to the largely residential neighborhood, and the best place to walk your dog in the area. This large park has several dedicated areas for sports, exercise, and even a gymnasium and indoor pool. While your pup can’t play inside, the two of you can get plenty of exercise just walking the paths through this park. Add in plenty of grassy space for sniffing and picnicking, and you have a winner! Bring your own bowl, as the fountains here are too tall for man’s best friend.

Volz is a small neighborhood in Arlington Heights, but it has plenty to make you want to stay. Start with a vigorous walk at Berbecker Park. This small park can be looped for quick walks, or you can take it slow and bring the kids to enjoy the playground. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to one of two dog-friendly dining options in Volz. Noodles and Company is a unique dining experience. They have eight dog-friendly tables, and they serve noodles from multiple cultures! If you’d rather grab a sandwich, Big Angie’s Eatery is just blocks away and the perfect place to head. This family owned restaurant is always on the lookout for cute canine customers.

Hasbrook Park in Greenbriar is a great place to take your dog for a long, leashed walk. This park features sports fields and playground equipment, but dogs love the nighttime illumination! Lights keep this park open past dark! There’s also a paved walking path that makes for an easy walk. You can head through the park to the fenced-off pond as well, which makes for beautiful viewing. Bring your own water bowl to start with, and if you plan on a longer walk, take a bottle as well so you can refuel partway. There’s lots to explore and sniff, so every dog can have a pawsome time.

Lake Arlington in Berkeley Square is good for dogs who need a lot of exercise! If your pup thinks a two mile walk is a good start, head to Lake Arlington. This park features a two mile track that runs just around the lake! If your pup needs even more, two laps of the lake aren’t bad, and the view simply can’t be beat. Lake Arlington has a lot of attractions in the summer, from ice cream to paddle boats, but it’s always a great place for wagging tails and a good walk!

Arlington Heights is a bustling urban center in the middle, but there’s still room to get out of the crowds and relax. Head north to Palatine, one of Arlington Heights’ furthest neighborhoods. The Palatine neighborhood park, Nickol Knoll Park, is a great place to feel like you’re above your troubles. Part of that is literal. The park is up above the rest of the area, and though walking it involves some mild hiking, it rewards you with a great view! The area is also a golf course, so walking the path provides views of manicured greens. Bring water: Nickol Knoll Park is a bit of a workout, but totally worth it.
