“You’re dogs newest best friend !”

Hi! Shannon here, I’ve always thought of my pets as a member of my family. Our pets have a HUGE impact on us, & the bond that emerges is one of a kind. My passion and underrated for dogs soon blossomed when I became a kennel manager for a boarding facility in Oswego. I understand that not all pets do well in daycare/boarding facilities. I see how much more comfortable both you, and your pets are knowing they are being cared for in a familiar environment. Wags & kisses guaranteed!!!

Dog Walking in Coal City

Coal City is a medium-sized town in Grundy County in the state of Illinois. Since it's located near the Kankakee river, fishing is not uncommon here. The city gets its name from the many coal mines that surround the city. Some of these mines are still in operation today, although all of them are closed to visitors. The town has had some excitement from passing tornadoes in recent years, but it is mostly found to be a quiet and welcoming place for travelers with or without their furry companions. Coal City has outskirts that feel like a small town, while the middle of town has a much more upbeat vibe.

Residents in Coal City work hard to preserve the older buildings found here that have been standing as long as 100 years. These buildings make a great scenic route for a walk through town with your dog. Dogs must be licensed and leashed throughout Coal City, otherwise you risk a fine from local law enforcement. There are many restaurants along the main trip through the center of the city. Loco’s Mexican Restaurant is a local favorite with limited outdoor seating if you would like to bring your dog with you while you enjoy your meal.

If you get hungry for a quick bite, there is a Taco Bell just south of the neighborhood where you can get a bite to eat on the go or you can sit and enjoy your food in their outdoor seating area with your dog. Make sure you bring your waste bags as most of the neighborhood is residential and the locals appreciate your respect as you pass through their unique town.

North Coal City is home to the city’s water waste management system. This keeps the northern part of town pretty busy with commuters coming in and out. North Coal City is home to North Park, a well-kept small green space where you can take your dog on leash to enjoy a game of fetch or for a jog around the fields. Make sure you have your clean-up bags handy here so that you can keep the green spaces as green as possible. The local Subway and Rosati’s Pizza provide great carryout options for hungry travelers looking for a quick bite they can take with them on the road.

West Coal City is home to two small, unnamed lakes where you can pull over and spend a little time stretching your legs with your dog on your way to your destination for the night. These lakes are frequented by ducks and birds, along with bird watchers, so be courteous of the locals and make sure your dog is well-behaved here and doesn’t scare off any of the feathery friends in the water (at least not on purpose)! As long as you have your waste bags and your towels with you, you will have a pawfect afternoon here in West Coal City with your furry co-pilot.

East Coal City is full of open residential streets. The neighborhood residents take pride in the lawns and curb appeal of their homes on this side of town. Keep this in mind when walking your pup in this neighborhood and make sure you have extra waste bags on hand in case your dog gets pawfully excited. You will see many other dog owners walking their canine pals on this side of town, so a short or retractable leash is never a bad idea. Pay attention to your dog’s signals while you spend time around other dogs and be ready to give your dog a break if he needs one.

South Coal City is a residential neighborhood that offers residents and visitors plenty of well-maintained sidewalks to walk their dogs on. Walking your dog here is sure to be a social experience, especially in the morning or early evening, so make sure you have a good leash with you just in case you need to maintain control in an unpredictable situation. You will also want to keep waste bags with you in order to help keep the locals’ yards clean and pristine during your afternoon puppy breaks. Make sure you reward good social behavior toward other dogs and strangers with extra treats!
