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 Chicago Ridge

Chicago is a truly magical city. It is one of the most beautiful, busiest cities in the world, and home some of the best food you will ever taste. The people of Chicago are not only confined to the city next to Lake Michigan, though. In fact, all of the Windy City's surrounding neighborhoods and suburbs, including the village of Chicago Ridge, fall under the umbrella of "Chicagoland".

It is here that you will find an abundance of art and dog lovers. Chicago is known for being a culturally diverse city, with many neighborhoods being dedicated to specific cultures. For example, you could start your day by getting a taco in Pilsen and end it by getting some Schezuan chicken in Chinatown. Good food and culture is something both two- and four-legged friends can appreciate!

If you're looking for some doggone good eats, you won't even have to drive out of the village to get some grub. Chicago Ridge is home to three furrific dog-friendly restaurants where you and your hungry hound can chow down. Craving some red meat? Head to Jenny's Steakhouse and Pub! Jack Desmond's Irish Pub is another pawesome place where you and Fido can indulge in your pub favorites. Leashes and good behavior are required at both restaurants.

Unfortunately, since there are no dog parks located in Chicago Ridge, you will have to go out of your way at times to make your pup happy.

If you are up for the drive, head to Jackson Bark. This is a state-of-the-art dog park with high-tech agility equipment and plenty of toys that all pups can play with. Fido is sure to make plenty of new fur-iends here!

Although a forty-minute drive to University Village in Chicago may seem lengthy, it is a good option if you want to get out of the suburbs for a bit. University Village is just that -- a village dedicated to college and medical school students. The area does not have a lot to do or see, but it is home to University Village Dog Park. This bare-bones dog park is nothing amazing, but it does provide a small stretch of grass for pups to play and stretch their legs. It is the perfect pit stop after a fun day in the city of Chicago!

Who doesn't love some good Greek food? Well, one of the best places to get Greek food outside of Greece is Greektown in Chicago. Another reason why this neighborhood is wonderfurr is that it is home to Mary Bartelme Park. This dog park is small and attached to another park. However, it is definitely large enough for your pooch to stretch their legs. Plus, every Sunday, the park hosts a farmer's market where you can buy plenty of supplies for your pooch and food for yourself. In addition, you will get to meet many Greektown residents who never miss a Sunday farmer's market.

If you're looking for a park that's a little closer to home, you'll be happy to know that Worthbrook Park is just a short, 7-minute drive away. Although this is not a dog park, it is a pretty large park that has plenty of space for you and your pup to play. It also has an abundance of sporting activities, fields, and amenities not only for pooches, but also for humans. You will often see many humans running and exercising alongside their pups. Just make sure you keep your most loyal companion leashed at all times in the park. Don't fur-get the waste bags!
