“I will sing for your pet.”

Hi, I'm Keith! I worked with every breed under the sun, from Chihuahuas to English Mastiffs, during my 5 years volunteering with the Metro Area Animal Adoption Association in Detroit. Due to allergies in the family I cannot live with animals anymore. Wag! has given me the opportunity to resume this passion, for which I am grateful.

Dog Walking in Manhattan

Manhattan is a small village in Will County, Illinois that is known for its large immigrant population due to the establishment of the railroad during the mid-19th century.

Be sure to visit one of the great parks that Manhattan has to offer. Palmer Valley park is a beautiful park that offers a playground, benches for relaxing, a baseball field and a wide-open grass space that is perfect for fetch. If you would rather just get a nice walk in with your furry friend, Palmer Valley Park has a great walking path the goes through and circles the park.

If you and Fido want to grab a bite to eat together, be sure to stop into Home Folks Drive Inn in Manhattan. This pawsome eatery is a casual diner setting that serves homemade food. They like to keep everything retro, so instead of normal tables outside, they offer picnic tables for you and your dog to eat at. Before leaving, make sure to grab a milkshake or ice cream cone to complete your meal, maybe even Fido could get a lick.
