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.

“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 37 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!

Dog Walking in McHenry

Mchenry is located in the upper right portion of Illinois and is home to a few Fido-friendly places and spaces! Prairie Trail is a nature trail that is 26.5 miles in length. This trail starts at the Wisconsin border and continues around farms and woodlands into the far-flung Chicago suburbs in the south. Along the way, it upgrades from gravel to asphalt and passes through eight communities, where you’ll find food and drink, as well as numerous parks and conservation areas. Your dog will need to stay on-leash on this trail.

Dogs are welcome at Windhill Pancake Parlor, where you and Fido will find three pet-friendly tables outside. Fido will have to stay outside and guard your table while you head inside to order your meal, as there's no table service. They dish up a menu full of breakfast favorites, including baked apple pancakes, Belgian waffles, eggs in a basket, and apple pie crepes.

Culver's offers a few outdoor tables to dog owners. Its menu is made up of premium chicken dishes, sandwiches, hearty soups, fresh salads, and its signature ButterBurgers.  A drive-thru window is also available if you don't want to leave Fido at the table outside while you go in to order.
