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 Hickory Hills

Hickory Hills, Illinois is known for being a quiet, rural area hidden in the forest. An interesting fact about this quaint city is that it's the hometown of US Army Colonel James Hickey, who was part of Operation Red Dawn, the military campaign which resulted in the capture of Saddam Hussein.

Apart from this unique claim to fame, Hickory Hills boasts plenty of places to enjoy nature with your best furry friend. While you're here, you'd be barking mad to miss Prairie View Park. There is a lot for the whole family to enjoy here! The half-mile paved walking trail winds around the perimeter of the park. There is a playground, restroom, and small picnic area here as well. 

Hickory Hills Woods is a little more remote than Prairie View Park. The walking paths go through the forests. Hidden back in the wooded trails are picnic areas. This quiet wooded area is the perfect place to rest and relax, and your dog will be fascinated by all the new sights and smells this beautiful forest has to offer!

Beck Lake is an off-leash area where you can take your dog to explore 40 acres. There is a pond, but you cannot swim or fish there. You can feed the ducks, though, so bring some duck-safe food, like uncooked oats, rice, or bird seed (not bread -- it's actually really harmful for them!). The trail system is nine miles long, and doesn't offer any amenities along the way, so you'll need to pack your own supplies, including water and doggie waste bags. You will need to register to play here. If you are just visiting, you can get a day pass. Make sure to keep your dog on a leash, and have a ball at Beck Lake!

The park supplies water fountains for both you and your dog, and doggie waste bags are available at all the trash cans in the park. All they ask is that you clean up after your dog and that you don't bring toys in. Please note that children are not allowed in the dog park for safety reasons.

Miller Meadows Dog Park is a large open field set aside for dogs to come and play. It is an off-leash area, but there are no fences, so you'll want to make sure your dog responds well to voice commands. This field covers three acres and offers two miles of walking trails. There is an outdoor shelter, but no running water. Unlike the other dog parks in the county, you don't need a permit to play, but they do ask that you provide documentation of your dog's vaccinations. Come and let your dog run for a while! Your precious pup will love you fur-ever for making the short trip to this furrific dog park!

Messenger Marsh Dog Park in Homer Glen is a five-acre fenced area where you can let your dog off-leash to socialize and play. The best part of the park is that there are several areas set aside for different needs. There is an agility area, an area just for fetch, and an area for small dogs. The water stations are perfect for all dogs to have plenty of fresh water. You will love it so much that it is worth taking the fourteen-mile trip to get here. Just make sure to bring a chair, because seating is scarce here. Other than that,  you and Fido are sure to have a pawesome time!

Trantina Farm Dog Park is a two-acre dog park. You'll have to register and pay an entrance fee to play at this off-leash dog park. There are two separate areas so that dogs can play with other dogs their own size. If your dog doesn't mind the leash, there is a trail that leads all the way around the area. This trail system is used by humans and horses as well. If your dog isn't used to horses, you may want to skip the trail. The human part of the park covers 30 acres and includes a wildlife viewing area. Dogs are allowed, but they must be on a leash.
