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 Deerfield

The friendly community of Deerfield is conveniently located, with easy access to Chicago's downtown area via the Loop or by train. Located in Lake County, the village has a wide variety of parks and recreation areas, family-friendly events, and plenty of places to enjoy a day off! You will find a few dog parks, colorful and unique dog-friendly eateries, and three major veterinary hospitals in the area if you need assistance.

Jaycee Dog Park, located in the eastern part of the village, is a fun place to stop by with your mutt to socialize with other canine friends and enjoy a chat with the local dog owners. Fenced and spacious, the dog park boasts plenty of room to run off-leash, dirt to dig up, and grass to wallow in.

Jaycee Dog Park is less crowded than the separate section for dogs in Jewett Park, which is a public park that attracts plenty of human and canine visitors every weekend! The dog area is fenced and can be easily supervised by owners relaxing on the benches in shade.

You can grab some grub in Deerfield at Dear Franks, a cool modern American eatery with dog-friendly outdoor tables and simple, but extremely delicious, food for everyone!
