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 Golf

The village of Golf in Cook County covers half a square mile, and has a population of just under 500. Although it is tiny, it still has plenty to offer visiting pups. This area is rich in woodland areas to explore and pup-friendly parks to play at, and is less than 20 miles north of Chicago.

The must-do while in Golf is to walk the North Branch Trail which runs right through the woodland areas of Golf. This paved trail runs almost 20 miles from Northbrook north of Golf, to Chicago in the south. You need to keep your dog on a lead here, but it is an easy path with plenty to see along the way, and you can choose to wander as far as you like. As always when venturing out on a hike, go prepared with your water, any snacks you might like, and your clean up bags.

Deiderich Park in town is another great little green space to catch some fresh air with your dog. You can go for an on-lead walk around the park, or just stretch out on the grass and watch the world go by. From here, take a walk through the town of Golf and check out the historic buildings and shops. You and your dog are sure to enjoy your time here in Golf.

Harms Woods in Golf is a lovely spot for a hike with your dog, or a day out with the whole family for a picnic amongst the trees. The wooded park is bisected by the North Branch of the Chicago River, and offers up scenic views and plenty of wildlife to spot. There are two trails on the west side of the river, as well as two sections leading from the Harms Woods parking area on the east. The main trail heading south and an offshoot will take you on a 1.2 mile detour east around Harms Flatwoods. There are plenty of picnic areas, and restrooms are available near the carpark. Bring your water bottle and a drinking bowl for your pup, as well as your clean up bags.

Linne Woods sits just south of Golf in neighboring Morton Grove, and is a beautiful place to take a walk with your pup on the lead. The trails through here are well-maintained, taking you along the North Branch of the Chicago River and through wooded areas and prairies. The main trail cutting through here is a paved section of The North Branch Trail system, but there are other trails to explore as well. Pack your picnic to take a break at one of the groves or tables in the area, take plenty of water and don’t forget your clean up bags.

Sleepy Hollow Park in nearby Glenview is a great little spot for a walk through the woods, around the grassed area and over a stream.

There are six outdoor tables that welcome pets here, and plenty of tasty treats on the menu to tempt you.

Another beautiful park worth checking out in this area is Gallery Park in Glenview. There are paved walking trails circling Glenview Lake for a little on-lead stroll with your dog, and plenty of grassed areas in the 140-acre park for a fun game of catch or Frisbee. In the same area is Little Bear Park, which your human children will love to play at while you walk the surrounding paths with Fido. Adjacent to the park is a shopping centre where you will find several options for a pup-friendly lunch out. Eggsperience Pancakes and Café, Noodles & Company, Yard House, Potbelly Sandwich Shop and Forever Yoghurt all allow dogs at one of their outdoor tables while you enjoy your meal or refreshing drink.

Just five miles from Golf is the Community Bark West Dog Park in Glenview. Here, your pup can escape the lead and run to his heart’s content, burn off some energy and meet some new friends. You will first need to purchase a pass from the Glenview Park District, so go prepared with all of your dog’s veterinary paperwork. The fenced six-acre park is well-maintained and has walking paths throughout. There are water fountains for dogs and people, and waste disposal facilities on-site to keep the place clean for all users. You can supervise your pup while taking some time out at one of the benches or under the shelter.
