I currently own a 10 yr. old Dalmatian Mix (Bella) and 6 yr. old German Shepherd (Rex), and have had them both since they were puppies. I am experienced with the care it takes to train/raise a dog from the puppy phase to a full-grown companion! Everything that a pet owner can go through, I have gone through myself, so I feel very comfortable handling all types and sizes of dogs, and providing exceptional care when I get the opportunity to take your best friend for a walk/run! I can do walks in your neighborhood, drive them to a nearby dog park or play with them in your own home. What works best for you and your dog is my top priority! I hope to hear from you!

Hi! I'm Susan and I've been an animal/nature lover all my life. Dogs have been a part of my family for the past 37 years along with fish and birds. We currently have two rescues, a chiweenie and a lab-shepherd, that are absolute joys. I can't imagine life without companion animals nor the beauty and peace that nature provides. As a Wag! walker, I’m committed to compassionate care and assuring pet safety as well as being respectful of your home and privacy. Kisses and belly rubs galore!

My name is Mike, I am an active, outgoing, and sport loving individual, I strive to spend as much time in the outdoors as my schedule allows. While outside I rock climb, mountain bike, fish, hike, swim in addition to growing organic food which I solely consume during the summer and fall seasons. I have been lucky enough to be around dogs my whole life and I now work daily with my family’s border collies to provide goose control services for many; schools park districts, golf courses and corporate centers in the Lake County area. I have helped train all our dogs which currently provide goose control for our families business. I graduated in 2011 from Western State University of Colorado, in Gunnison with a degree Outdoor Recreation. One interesting fact is, I was bit 2 times before the age of 5, once by my parent’s dog and once by my neighbor’s dog. This incident has brought me closer than ever to dogs, but has allowed me to connect with them more than most individuals. I feel the dogs can sense or know what happened to me during my childhood.

Dog Walking in Lake Villa

Nestled in the northeast corner of Illinois is the village known as Lake Villa with a population of almost 9,000 people. Lake Villa is situated in a beautiful rolling landscape, and as part of Lake County, it has plenty of lakes within its vicinity and in the surrounding county. Many tourists visit each year to experience these lakes and all they have to offer, but many other exciting things are going on in Lake Villa that both you and your dog will love. There are a couple of veterinary offices within Lake Villa, but in the greater Lake County area, there are plenty more.

If you've had a long day of enjoying the outdoors with your dog in Lake Villa and you're ready to refuel and recharge at a great local restaurant, check out Reno. At Reno, your dog can join you at one of their pet-friendly outdoor tables, and you can enjoy dishes like their Oasis Pizza, Working Man Sandwich, and their Wisconsin Burrata, and if Fido is lucky (or being a very good boy!), he might sneak a few morsels for himself. Whether it's grabbing something tasty to eat or spending a day at the lake, there is so much to do in Lake Villa with your dog!
