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!

My name is Patrick & I live in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. I've had dogs & cats my whole life, currently having a 17 year old calico named Jadzia. Love my doggies too but Jadzia doesn’t approve so I make up for it by dog sitting for friends & family, as well as taking volunteer opportunities. On top of that, I love being outside & walking, even when the weather isn't so great.

Dog Walking in Elmwood Park

Elmwood Park is a village in Illinois in Cook County. The town is home to many Italian-American, Polish-American, and Latino residents. This diverse mixture has contributed to the unique development of the culture here. The town was founded in 1914 as a separate town from nearby Chicago. Elmwood Park was incorporated as a village in early April 1914 to prevent it from being annexed by the greater city of Chicago. 

Residents of Elmwood Park describe it as a dog-friendly place with residents who love to garden and take pride in the way their neighborhood looks. Visitors often feel welcomed by the residents, and there is always a kind neighbor who will help you find your way around if you need it. There are also two animal hospitals in town and several more outside the town that will be happy to help you keep your dog happy and healthy throughout your travels in this part of Illinois.

Dog owners here enjoy a variety of green spaces both in and around the town where leashed dogs are more than welcome to explore and roll around to their hearts’ content. Constitution Park is just south of town and is very popular with the locals who have dogs of their own. 

Elmwood Park is the pawfect place to make some new friends, both of the two- and four-legged variety!

The Des Plaines River runs right through the corner of this neighborhood, and your dog won’t be able to make his way to the water fast enough if you choose to check it out.

Make sure you have towels with you if you do travel to the river. Keep clean-up bags with you as you visit the nearby parks as well.
