I love animals, especially dogs! I grew up with a Pomeranian- Shih Tzu mix and a Golden Retriever- Pyrenees mix. Myvery first job was at a doggy day camp and I absolutely loved it. I learned a lot about dogs and their behavior. I spent time watching over and playing with the dogs. I'm not able to have a dog where I currently live, but I spend a lot of time with my friends’ dogs. We love to take them out on walks and on hikes when it's nice and I frequently dog sit when they go out of town.

Dog Walking in Braidwood

Braidwood is a small, rustic community that grew from the discovery of coal in the area. Drive Route 66 and enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Braidwood, surrounded by outdoor recreation catering to hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping. There are no veterinarians in Braidwood, but there are vets in nearby neighboring communities ready to serve your pup when needed.

Dogs are a part of the hunting culture here, and you can find dogs in training in the fish and wildlife preserves, such as the Des Plaines State Fish and Wildlife area in Lorenzo, and the Braidwood Dunes and Savanna Nature Preserve. These areas also have excellent nature trails for hiking and leashed walks outside of hunting season.

While road-tripping Route 66 with your pooch, stay at one of the dog-friendly hotels near Braidwood. In Morris, the Comfort Inn, Days Inn & Suites, and Holiday Inn Express & Suites each allow two dogs of any size for an additional fee per pet per night.  Don’t miss Blackbird’s Bowl, Morris, a unique boutique of holistic food and treats plus an “Apawthecary” of supplements for your pup. Try the gourmet cookie and biscuit bar. Explore Braidwood's trails, lakes, wildlife, and history to see why this community is so special.
