Back in 1885, a man named George Dolton decided that a little piece of land in Illinois was the perfect place to settle because it was the exact spot where the Indian Trail crossed over the Little Calumet River. So he built a house and began running a ferry to help others cross the river. That little business made Dolton, Illinois what it is today. A community soon grew and flourished, and several businesses thrived, all thanks to Dolton's ferry. When you bring your dog to visit Dolton, make some time to learn more about the history of this quaint little village.

But before you do that, you have to stop by Dolton Park. This is a 23-acre park where you can walk your dog on-leash, get some exercise, and enjoy some fresh air. The jogging trail is completely paved so that it is easy to walk. You will also find a playground, ball fields, and picnic pavilions here.

Blackstone Park is another six acres in Dolton that is open to the public. You can walk your dog, play fetch, or just let the kids play on the playground. There isn't a walking trail here, but there is plenty of room to run. 

Dolton doesn't have much else to offer dog owners, but you and Fido can find more furrific activities just a short drive out of town!

    If you don't mind a seventeen-mile road trip over to Tinley Park, you can take Fido to Bremen Grove Off-Leash Area for some leash-free playtime. It is within the Cook County Forest Preserve. There is a small fee to pay, but you can get a day pass online. The double-gated entrance allows you to relax at the tables while your dog plays safely within the fence. The park provides water and doggie waste bags so you can clean up after your dog. It isn't the biggest dog park, but it is the perfect size for your dog to run and play with other fur friends safely.

    Erie Lackawanna Trail is a 17-mile trail that stretches from Highland to Chicago. This is part of the Rails-to-Trails Conservation effort, which converts abandoned and unused rail lines into Fido-friendly walking trails. This trail goes through green space and wetlands so Fido will have plenty of terrain to sniff. There are parks with running water along the way, but you'll want to carry some water with you just in case. The trail is clearly marked, and you should stay on the trail for your own safety. Please keep your dog on a leash here.

    #4 Montose Beach

    Need a beach day? You can take your dog with you to Montrose Beach in Chicago, which dedicates a section of the shore to the doggos! It is about a twenty-mile drive, but the quick trip is well worth it. Off-leash beaches like this one are hard to find, so be sure to take advantage while you're in the area. There are always lots of dogs here to play with here. You will need to bring drinking water and doggie waste bags, but with so much to do, you won't mind. It is free to bring your dog, but you do have to check in and get a tag.
