Looking to discover a quiet, rustic village to settle down and enjoy the comforts of suburban living? Bartlett, IL is a quaint town roughly 40 miles outside of Chicago. This area is ideal for families looking for a cozy residential area where they can enjoy the surrounding nature. With a population that is on the rise and plenty of available pet-friendly homes, this is a purrfect place to kick your feet (and paws!) up and relax. 

Pet parents can take note of the various veterinary services in the area, which are all located in convenient areas throughout each neighborhood. To pick up everyday supplies like food, toys, and other goodies, you’ll have to take a short ride outside of Bartlett to one of the nearby towns – but nothing is more than a 10-minute drive! 

It’s important to note the pretty strict dog ownership laws, which require all puppy parents to register their pup with the Village of Bartlett. The license fee is a mere $2.00 per pet, but it is required to use any of the dog parks in the area, like the 34-acre off-leash area in the immense Hawk Hallow Preserve. Even for every day walks, it is obligatory to keep Rover securely safely on a leash – and don’t forget the pooper scooper!
