    Hi! My name is Heather and I recently relocated back to the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I spent the past 15 years living in Los Angeles where my dog walking journey began. I started walking dogs for Wag! Back in 2015, when they were brand new, so I’ve been with them a long time. I’ve lived with dogs my entire life and currently have my own chihuahua mix, as well as two parakeets. I enjoy spending time with dogs, whether it be a breezy walk or watching over them during a boarding.

    I love dogs and I love getting exercise- a perfect combination for walking your dog ! I have worked for numerous dog rescues over the years both walking,bathing and training the dogs as well as fostering over 30 dogs in my home where they were treated as members of the family. I have never met a dog I didn’t like-large,small,furry,not so furry,senior,puppy and everything in between-well you get the idea! I would love to meet YOUR dog and see how we get along!

    Hi there! I'm Ellie, and I am an animal lover to the tenth PAWer! Ever since I was little, I have always loved dogs, and would pet every dog I saw (with owner's permission, of course)! I have worked with dogs big and small with all kinds of personalities through pet sitting, walking, and day care. Ensuring that your dog has a safe and fun time is my number one priority.

    “Compassionate care; honest and reliable service”

    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 40 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!

    “I’m just plain Barkable.”

    Hi! My name is Machelle. I look forward to meeting your furry family member and yourself as well. I take great care to detail. I can assure you that your dog will be safe and have a fun walk. Likes to roll in the grass? I’ll roll too. Likes to linger? That’s okay I might need a rest too. Likes to power walk? Don’t worry I’ll keep up. Affraid of water? I’ll carry you over the puddle. Doggie kisses? I’ll take them all day. Your dog won’t just have a walk they will have an experience.

    I have been a dog lover for my whole entire life. The past 30 years I have owned at least one dog and up to three dogs at one time. I love animals, in general, I’ve had many animals, including a bird, hamster, bunnies, and fish. I have watched dogs for my friends and relatives and I have walked dogs for my neighbors.

    Hi, I'm Briana! I have over 15 years of experience pet sitting and boarding, and have volunteered at shelters. I can keep up with the younger and athletic dogs, but am very familiar with special needs and geriatric dogs, and love each and every one in between.

    Crystal Lake Brewery is located about five miles from Lakewood. This establishment will let you bring your leashed dog in with you while you sample some custom brews. If you don't want to try something new, you can find some of your favorites on tap. You can bring your dog, and your buddies, but you also have to bring your own food. They don't serve food, but you can get delivery here. There is always something new to try; just mind your manners. The rule is if the human or the dog get rowdy, they both have to go, but that's the one and only rule at this furrific Fido-friendly brewery!

    Prairie Trail is also in Crystal Lake, just five miles from Lakewood. This is a 26-mile trail that was established on the former North Western Rail line that brought this city to life. Most of the trail is either asphalt or a gravel mix, but there are some areas that get muddy during the fall and spring. You will want to bring plenty of water to drink because there is no running water along the trail. Please remember that this is a natural area and you will want to keep your dog on a leash.
