I have had dogs mys entire life, all were large breeds except one small. I also provided dog care for those in temporary need of shelter and care. I believe a healthy diet and exercise is key for a happy dog. I have taken several dog training courses and know how to keep calm and show no fear around a dog who is barking or asserting dominance. I understand the different behaviors and traits in each breed and deal with each dog appropriately.

I'm Bianca, I've loved animals all my life and grew up surrounded by dogs and cats my entire life.My love of animals started at a very age and I knew I wanted to work with all types of animals when I got older. Before working with Wag! I pet sat and walked for my family, friends and neighbors. I'm reliable, discreet, I pay attention to your dog's needs, I love walks and I'm genuinely concerned about your dog. Families have described me as a responsible,kind and fun-loving person I love being a pet sitter/dog walker because it gives me the opportunity to meet and bond with so many new pets and their owners. I enjoy all the different personalities of our client's pets and it's rewarding when an animal loves seeing you when you walk in the door. I can assure you that I will treat your fur babies like they were my own, not only because I'm an animal lover, but because it's how I want my "babies" treated while I'm away. I above and beyond my duties as a dog walker and sitter.

Dog Walking in Matteson

Matteson is a moderately populated village located a little over 30 miles from the Windy City. This quaint community is the hometown of a few professional sportsmen, including NFL player Jon Asamoah and NBA player Tyler Ulis.

Matteson doesn't have a lot of dog-friendly amenities, apart from one pet-friendly hotel and a few dog-friendly chain restaurants and coffee shops. It does, however, have an animal hospital, so you won't have to travel to find quality veterinary care.

If you need a place to stay, head over to Quality Inn & Suites, which charges a pet fee for four-legged guests. Once you and Fido are all settled into your hotel room, you can swing by Culver's, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Five Guys, or Panera Bread to grab a bite. All restaurants allow doggie diners at the outdoor seating areas.

Although there aren't many dog-friendly spaces in the village, there is a furrific trail here for when you and your pooch need some exercise. The Old Plank Road Trail is 22 miles long and stretches through several cities in Illinois, with a trailhead in Matteson. Make sure you bring water and waste bags along for your hike!

You can find more dog-friendly fun just a short drive out of town.
