I am a full-time, high school special education teacher, and I am looking to fill my summers and weekends with something I love to do... walking dogs! I currently own a golden retriever and a Siberian husky, but I have experience with and enjoy caring for both large and small dogs alike. I am also an avid runner with a lot of energy. I am looking forward to taking your dog with me on some fun adventures!
The village of Lake in the Hills is a pawtastic community for dogs and their owners. There are a variety of parks and trails where you and Fido can get some exercise together. When your pup needs professional attention, you'll be able to find a veterinarian in town.
Take your special pal fishing at Turtle Island Park off Indian Trail. This small facility has a gazebo and an overlook onto the lake. Bring a canoe and launch out into the water for a relaxing day with your pooch. Remember to keep your dog on a leash and clean up his waste.
There's a furiffic park on the east side of town. Head to Hoffman Park and walk along the trails with your furry friend. You can also purchase an annual pass from the Carey Park District to use the 18-acre, off-leash dog run located in this facility.
Another wonderful natural area to hike with your four-footed friend is Fox Bluff Conservation Area. This 273-acre facility has 0.6 miles of hiking trails. Dogs are permitted on the trails as long as they're on a leash up to ten feet long and you pick up any waste.
There are a range of outdoor activities available for you and your pup to enjoy in the Lake in the Hills area.
