“Fun, friendly and always ready!”

My name is Fiona and I’m a kind and loving person with a soft spot for those furry friends. I grew up with a dog so I am very familiar with their needs, routines, and care. Others might describe me as friendly, energetic, responsible, and hardworking. I know how important your friend is to you so I will take care of them like they were my own. Whether you need a one time dog walker, someone to watch over your dog, or a loyal friend I’m your gal! Can’t wait to meet you and your furry friend!

Hi, I’m Aaron, very nice to meet you and your best friend and can’t wait to walk your pup! I grew up in small town central IL taking care of multiple black labs. Almost 6 years ago, I took in a shelter dog named Addie and her and I have been walking and hiking and playing fetch ever since. I’m looking forward to walking your little (or big!) family member with the same love and care I share with my Addie. Thanks for reading my profile.

Dog Walking in Illinois

Canton is the largest town in Fulton County, Illinois, and is home to a few great lakes, like the Fitch Lake and Bond Lake, perfect if your pup loves the water. There are three veterinarians in Canton if your dog needs to go in for a health check-up.

Spend the day out at Dean Park with your four-legged pal by your side. The park offers a huge playground, a large grass space, picnic tables, shade, and a nice walking path around and throughout that park that you and Fido can use while you're visiting. Make sure when you are out at the park to keep your dog on a leash.

Billy's Tap is a casual bar and eatery that has a dog-friendly atmosphere. They serve a variety of delicious food with a menu that includes burgers, sandwiches and seafood options. Their outdoor patio is a great area to relax, cow down, and have your dog by your side. 

If you're looking for a place to stay, then stop into the Super 8 Canton or the Canton Inn. They both welcome your dog to stay the night with you while you are out exploring Canton together.

Canton is a great area to be with your furry pal and getting some good walks in.
