I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment. Due to a heavy school schedule I had to leave that job but now that Wag! exists I can still work with pups!

I am a semi retired professional with a passion for animals. Growing up on a farm in North Carolina I was exposed to a lot of dogs: hunting dogs, house dogs, guard dogs, herding dogs, etc. The advantage of living on the farm was that you got to play with the working animals when they weren’t working and I spent a lot of time with dogs learning valuable lessons of how they interact with people and other animals and how they think. All through my life I have been around dogs and cats. I have owned three dogs of my own and have had relationships with other dogs belonging to roommates housemates and neighbors. I am very attuned to the challenges of having a pet in the city and understand the importance of seeing that the animals get the proper attention and care. Caring for dogs is not just a job for me it’s a passion and it’s important that I give each dog I encounter the same attention that I would give my own dog.

Dog Walking in Lyons

Located in Cook County and also known as Lyons Township, the village of Lyons is home to the Chicago Portage National Historic Site, picturesque nature views, and some options for dining out with Fido. The village also features several public parks with walking trails and an animal hospital to help pups in need.

Cermak Woods is an extensive and green hub with three fields and an aquatic center. This forest preserve welcomes your leashed buddy, and offers hiking, biking, fishing and picnicking options, which you can enjoy with family and friends on the banks of the Des Plaines River. Lyons also has pet-friendly trails for leashed pooches in Veterans Park, and its own off-leash area, Miller Meadow Dog Park. However, this is a private park, and a special permit is required for visiting.

For the best beef in the state, head to Novi’s Beef in Berwyn, a casual eatery with outdoor tables and a variety of courses and appetizers made with love. Their delicious Double Dog treat – two all-beef hot dogs on one bun topped with onions, tomatoes, mustard, and peppers – is just impawssible to describe!

Located in the southwestern part of Berwyn, 34th Street is home to a few nice facilities that your pooch will not want to miss out on! Karban Dog Park is a small but nicely organized and clean spot for mutts to play off-leash in the fenced designated area. The park offers plenty of space for chasing, playing, and training, as well as some seating and shade. This is a members-only dog park, though, so you'll need to register before visiting. Just a bit farther west, you will find Proksa Park, a pet-friendly spot with a playground and ponds where pooches are welcome on-leash.

The downtown area of Forest Park, IL is packed with pet-friendly eateries and offers a furrific place to burn off all those extra calories: Forest Park Dog Run. Located across from Veterans Park, the doggy spot is a fully-fenced terrain with a wood-chip cover and lots of daily visitors. Join the local pet parents for a chat while your mutt sniffs out some new friends! Make sure you have enough drinking water with you. The place lacks shade, especially when it gets really hot. But you can always cool off in the comfort of O’Sullivan Public House, a pet-friendly pub on Madison Street with outdoor tables. The best part? It's within walking distance from the park!

Katherine Legge Memorial Park is a pawpular public park located in the southwestern corner of Hinsdale. This is a grrreat place to visit with the pup. Both canine and human locals positively love this park, and you'll see why when you make the short drive! The park features a designated area for canines; however, the dog area isn't fenced, so make sure your pooch is on their best behavior! The dog park operates within designated hours -- from early in the morning to 9 am and again at 7 pm. Benches and shade are included, but bringing your own drinking water is a must.

Educate yourself and your pup in one of the most interesting places in the village of Oak Brook! Fullersburg Woods Nature Education Center, located in the southern part of the village not far from busy Ogden Avenue, is a gorgeous preserve with a number of multi-purpose walking, biking, and even horse riding trails. Fullersburg Woods is a place of beautiful local flora and fauna, which is why your pooch should stay on their leash at all times and stay strictly on the trails. Some areas do not allow canines at all, so be sure to pay attention to signage. But you still can have a great walk in the woods, sniffing around and watching deer crossing the path right in front of you!
