Hello, my name is Chelsea. I’m a 23 year old teacher in St. Louis. I have owned dogs, walked dogs, and watched other’s dogs ever since I was little. I love dogs, but unfortunately I was a vet tech for 3 years at an emergency animal hospital, therefore I have experience with dogs of all different sizes and behaviors. I look forward to meeting your dog and giving them all the love and walks they need!

“Your dog needs a walk, let me help you!”

I've been with Wag! for about 3 years, and I love it. I've always loved daily walks, and now with having a dog of my own, they join me. Over the years, I've cared for and walked many Wag! pups and would love to help you. I've had 2 family dogs I helped care for and I've cared for many neighborhood furry friends. Sometimes life gets busy, and your dog starts to feel cooped up, I get it! Let me be the one to help and make sure your pups are happy, tired out and ready for snuggles and treats.

I am currently a student at Rockhurst University studying Occupational Therapy. I have always had a passion for dogs having several growing up.

Dog Walking in Highland

The story of Highland begins as a Swiss settlement that got its name from the Swiss-German immigrants who settled there. The city was first christened Helvetia, and later, with a vote, the town changed its name to an Anglicized version -- Highland. A fun fact connected to this city is that the inventor of condensed milk, John Baptist Meÿenberg, emigrated from Switzerland to Highland because of the large Swiss population that lived there.

Highland is fairly close to Saint Louis. Travel just thirty-three miles across the Mississipi River to enjoy the urban setting and abundance of dog-friendly places in Saint Louis with your pup.

You won't need to travel out of town to find dog-friendly amenities, though. In case you need veterinary help, you will be able to get it in Highland since the city has its own veterinary hospital that provides many services. 

If you are just stopping by in Highland and you need a place to lodge with your pup, visit the Baymont Inn & Suites Highland. For more choices, you can visit Troy, which is 13 miles away from Highland, or O'Fallon, which is 23 miles away. 

Although Highland doesn't have many dog-friendly restaurants that you can visit with your pooch, O'Fallon will surely have something that you like! In Highland, all your pup's basic needs are covered, but you can sniff out more dog-friendly fun in nearby towns and cities!

If you're looking for an off-leash dog park to take your pup to in the vicinity of Highland, the closest doggie park is Joe Glik Park, ruffly 17 miles away. You can find the park in the eastern part of Edwardsville, and even though the park is not that big, it has plenty of space for your pup to get his daily exercise. This double-gated fenced area is free, well-kept, and filled with the basic things you and your pooch will need. Pine trees provide shade, water bowls are provided, and there are plenty of toys and pooches to play with! Outside of the fenced area, you'll find trails, bathrooms, and a children's playground.

Twenty-three miles away from Highland, there's another option for off-leash doggie fun! O'Fallon Dog Park is located at Rock Springs Park in East O'Fallon. This off-leash fenced area is around 1.5 acres, and it's a great place for puppers who like playing with dogs of all shapes and sizes. (In other words, there's no separate small dog area.) Water is provided in buckets, so if you prefer, you can bring your own water and bowl. Although there is no natural shade, there is a pavilion that provides a bit of respite from the heat. The agility course will keep your doggo entertained!

A little bit further away than the previous parks, you can find the Frenchtown Dog Park. This park is located around 33 miles away from Highland, in Saint Louis' Soulard neighborhood. The most important thing you should know about the park that it's a membership-only park, so if you're looking for somewhere super secure for your pup to play, look no further! The park is fairly spacious and very clean. It provides separate areas for small and large puppers. Your furry buddy will be able to play with the toys, splash around in the kiddie pool, and try the fun obstacles! Water and trash receptacles are available as well.

Lucas Park Dog Park is another pawtential place that you and your pooch can pay a visit to. It's located around 32 miles from Highland, in Downtown West in Saint Louis. This park is also a membership-only park, and the annual membership would be suitable for those planning to move to Highland. All members of this park must provide proof of current vaccinations, so you can rest easy knowing your pup will be safe and sound here. Water and poop baggies are available on-site, and there is parking nearby. Plenty of toys and a doggie pool will enrich your pooch's experience at this park!

In case you're just passing through Highland and want to avoid membership-based doggie parks, we have a pawesome alternative for you and your pup! Head to Tower Grove Park, around 36 miles away, where you can have a great time with your leashed pooch. There is plenty of parking around the park, and there are water fountains as well. You should bring your own bowl, though. The lush trees and grass at this self-proclaimed "Gardenesque" park make this place a perfect spot for a family picnic. There's no off-leash area here, but the park is also pawpular with other dog walkers, so you and Fido will make fast furry friends!
