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.

Dog Walking in Flossmoor

Although Flossmoor, IL appears to be a dentists' advice, the city isn't as nearly focused on proper dental hygiene as it is with dog-friendly places. The town has three veterinarians and nine parks in total, all of them dog-friendly.

A popular dog destination in the town is Iron Oaks Park, a gorgeous 40 acre destination. Dogs may not go onto the natural trail,s but are allowed any other place within the park on a leash, such as the therapy garden, picnic area, recreation area and open fields. The park provides clean-up bag stations at the entrances of the park and also has benches and water fountains.

The town can also be dog-friendly when it comes to food, especially at the Bistro on Sterling. The restaurant has eight outdoor tables, all dog-friendly and delicious lunch and dinner courses. The menu includes ham and chicken sandwiches, which could be a good option if you want to spoil Fido a bit with some human food.

If you're looking for more than just a trail or a ham sandwich, then you're still in luck, as Flossmoor has plenty of options for you and your furry friend.

Old Flossmore is as you can guess, the older part of the town. Although older, it's still a relevant neighborhood when it comes to dog-friendliness. Owners and their dogs can travel to Leavitt Park, where you and a leashed up Fido can take a leisurely stroll through the perennial garden and sculpture park. Right down the street is Flossmoor park, and gives Fido a better chance to run around and be wild, where he can run off-leash in the ballfield, as long as no one is throwing a ball there. Outside the ballfield, dogs must remain leashed and cleaned up after, which is more comfortable with two separate clean-up stations around the park.

The community hosts Highland Park, a trail oriented park that's shaded, grassy and just darn right enjoyable to visit. The path is only .2 miles, but travels through a wooded area, and is set aside from the playfields in the park. It has an abundance of benches and a clean-up station at the end of the trail. The park is also down the street from Lou Malnati's Pizzeria, a pizza venue with dog-friendly outdoor seating and a dog's most favorite treat: Pizza crust.

Flossmoor Highlands holds something you wouldn't think would be in a suburb of Chicago: a 585-acre prairie in the Bartel Grasslands. What makes this place so extraordinary for dog lovers is every part is dog-friendly! Dogs must remain on a leash, but can come with you to stroll through the open fields, walk along the mowed path, or climb the mound to get a view of the entire prairie. The park doesn't have amenities like trash bins, water fountains or clean-up stations, so be prepared if you're going to bring Fido!
