My name is Sophie, and I am a dog lover through and through. My family rescued and trained three dogs while I was growing up, and they were a big part of our family. We were very involved with the rescue that saved our dogs, and I hope to make dog adoption easier for others with my commitment to dog-walking. I was a dog sitter throughout my time in college, and I love walking dogs to give them the exercise and outdoor time they need to be healthy, loving members of the family.

Dog Walking in Village of Lakewood

Lakewood, Illinois is a small town that is made up mostly of the Village of Lakewood. It is the heartbeat that keeps the city alive. Here, you'll find four golf courses, a myriad of trails that are open to the public, and a series of parks and beaches for both public and private use. The wetlands are protected within Lakewood by the Kishwaukee Fen Nature Preserve. You can bring your dog along with you to explore these five acres as long as you check in at the welcome center and have a leash with you at all times. 

You and your pup can also come and explore Crystal Lake Beach, which is open to the public all year long. There are strict leash rules in place, so please keep your dog on his leash here. The locals say that you can find some of the neatest things that wash up on the shore, so be on the lookout!

If you prefer, you could go fishing with your pup. Lakewood has launch slips where you and your dog can enjoy a day on the boat, fishing or just relaxing. The lake is beautiful all year long, but it really does seem to come alive in the spring and summer months.

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.
