I grew up with a Collie named Elsa and in the many years since have become close friends with Maggie, Phoebe, Molly, Mazie, Max, Lacy, Clover and other dogs who have lived in the families of my friends. I love to walk (being very much like a dog in that respect) and I love spending time with dogs. I look forward to going on some great walks with your best friend.

Hello, my name is Robert and I have been working with dogs for the last year and a half at a dog hotel. While there I’ve been taught how to work with dogs and have worked with many different breeds. I have a Labrador/Jack russel mix and believe me, he is a bundle full of energy. I look forward to getting to know your pup and making sure he has a fully interactive and healthy walk. My ultimate goal is to make sure he/she is well excercised and a happy dog.

Dog Walking in Crete

Crete is a pawsome village located in Will County. In fact, this place used to be called Wood’s Corner after the people that settled here in 1836, and it's one of the oldest spots near Chicago. For emergencies with your pup, there is one veterinary clinic in town, but you can find other animal hospitals in the surrounding areas, such as University Park and Chicago Heights.

For some fun in the sun with your furry friend, the Lincolnshire Park offers a pawsome walking path for a leisurely stroll. There is plenty of open grass here where you can play with your pooches favorite ball or Frisbee. For the kids, there is a playground, and there are benches where you can chill out and watch the world go by with your pup!

If you get hungry and fancy a bite to eat with your furry friend, you can stop at Culver’s. Here you can tuck into some good American Grub, such as burgers and steak. There are a few outdoor tables here where your pooch is welcome to join you. Just be sure someone can watch your dog while you order, as there isn’t table service available.

In addition, the trees at Crete Park provide some shade for your panting pup when it is warm outside.
