“You’re dogs newest best friend !”

Hi! Shannon here, I’ve always thought of my pets as a member of my family. Our pets have a HUGE impact on us, & the bond that emerges is one of a kind. My passion and underrated for dogs soon blossomed when I became a kennel manager for a boarding facility in Oswego. I understand that not all pets do well in daycare/boarding facilities. I see how much more comfortable both you, and your pets are knowing they are being cared for in a familiar environment. Wags & kisses guaranteed!!!

Dog Walking in Millington

Millington, Illinois has a strong connection to the past. While it is true that being on the Fox River has made it thrive, the Fox River is not the reason that the settlement became a city. Following the Revolutionary War, 3,000 fallen soldiers were buried here. The families of these fallen soldiers, including wives and children, couldn't bring themselves to leave. They tended the graves and banded together to form a community. The school children planted flowers along the graves. These flowers can still be seen every spring, even though the graves are no longer tended regularly. 

If you would like to know more about the fallen soldiers or the history of this town, you should go to the library. There, you can find a map of all the historic sites. You will also find the family names and locations of each grave. You and your dog can walk the cemetery and visit the fallen soldiers and their families. Bring your camera because it is said that you can snap photos of the children playing in the field in your pictures. Spooky!

If you would like a peaceful getaway, then you should visit Mallard Bend Campground. Tents, RVs, and cabins all have adequate space for you and your pup to spend some time together. You can even come and enjoy the day if you don't like camping. The campground offers fishing spots, playgrounds, and even a swimming pool. It is a great getaway for the whole family, located just outside of Millington.

Lincoln Dog Park is a very well-kept dog park about 25 minutes from you. You will love that there is lots of shade all over the dog park so that you can sit and relax but never lose sight of your pup. There is running water most of the year, but it is shut off in bad weather. The cleaning stations are stocked with baggies. The whole park is fenced in so that you can let your dog off his leash and just let him run for a while. There is a permit required, but if you are just visiting, you can go online and get a temporary pass.

Tracy's Row House is a little bit of a drive at around 30 miles, but the trip is definitely worth it for this Fido-friendly eatery! The large patio seating area is dog-friendly. They will even cook a meal for your dog so he doesn't have to beg for a bite of yours. If you are looking for a great burger, then look no fur-ther! All of their meat is fresh, and their dishes are cooked to order; you can even pick the seasonings. They provide dog water bowls and will serve your pup water when you get your drinks. Just don't forget to bring a leash!

You may not know it yet, but the best root beer ever made is served (in a boot, no less!) at Calamity Jane's. You will have to drive about twenty minutes to get some, but once you have tried it, you will be begging to come back. Your dog can join you out on the patio for any meal you would like. They serve a classic menu that covers your breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Bring a leash and a water bowl for your dog. This is a relaxed atmosphere that focuses on filling your belly with great fare.

Rails-to-Trails has worked hard to convert the former rail line that used to run through this area into a walking trail. The Virgil L. Gilman Trail is an 11-mile section of the original rail line that was established in 1928. It takes you from the college campus, through the neighboring area, and into some green meadows. This trail is fully paved, so be mindful of your pup's paws on hot days. There is no running water on this section, but you will be delighted to find that there are shops along the way. You will need to keep your pup on a leash while you explore.

Wauponsee Glacial Trail is a 22-mile trail that begins in Joliet, about thirty miles from Millington. This trail is not for the faint of heart. It is long with very little shade along the way. There are water stops along the way for you to refill your water bottle. You will need to keep your dog on his leash while you are here exercising. Rails-to-Trails have paved the part of the trail that goes through the city, but most of it is crushed rock. Be sure to bring extra water for your pup, as well as some doggie waste bags to clean up any accidents.
