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.

“Pet care in the far western ‘burbs”

The safety of your pet(s) and your home are my first priority. My family has had a pet care service for six years through which we have helped clients housebreak puppies, ensure comfort of older friends, administer medication and provide last minute care for middle-of-the-night emergencies. Our clients are our family. I recognize that not all pets are at the same stage in their lives and I will let your furry friend set the pace. I am looking forward to meeting you both!

Hi, I'm Randy! I've been a dog lover my entire life, having grown up with my black lab, Ebony, who lived a great life of 12 years. In the years since, I've spent a lot of time with my mother's 3 adorable labs, Buster, Moose, and Mojo (who's still my boy from before my parents' split). I'm always the first one she asks to watch them when she's away, and I'm always happy to oblige. I've also taken care of neighbor's dogs in the past, sometimes letting them just stay at my place so they're not lonely. Unfortunately, I'm not in a situation to have a dog myself at the moment, but I will always go out of my way to greet them whenever I can and take joy in making sure they're well cared for.

The village of Homer Glen, located about 32 miles southwest of Chicago in Will County, is a pawtastic place for you and Fido to explore. With six community parks, an extensive trail system, and a forest preserve area, there are numerous opportunities for you and your furry friend to get out and enjoy nature.

Head over to Culver Park with your pup to connect with the Heroes Trail System. This multi-use path includes several segments that link to other parks in the city. Dogs are permitted on the trail as long as they're kept on a leash. Make sure you pick up your pup's waste when using the trail, and you'll also want to bring some drinking water along.

When you want to enjoy a special treat with your canine companion, go to the Iron Horse Creamery. Enjoy a burger or hot dog and some refreshing ice cream for dessert while Fido lounges at your feet. Dogs are welcome to join you at the outdoor tables. Just make sure to bring a leash and a water bowl for your BFF!
