Dog Areas in Mokena

Mokena is a moderately sized village that is located in Will County. The name of the village means "mud turtle" in a Native American language.

While you are visiting this quaint locale with your pooch, you might need a place to stay. If that's the case, then you should check out the Super 8 Mokena, which doesn't charge a pet fee, or the Mokena Airbnb Rentals. Pet fees and restrictions vary for each accommodation, so check the pet policy when booking your room.

If you are looking for a place to grab a bite or sip some coffee, you have a few options in Mokena! Oberweis Dairy, Pop's Italian Beef & Sausage, and Dairy Queen are all dog-friendly. If you need a veterinarian while you're here, don't worry; there's an animal hospital in Mokena, as well as an emergency service that you can call at any time.  

While you are in Mokena, be sure to stop by the village dog park, Park 'n Bark Dog Park, which is clean and well-maintained. You have to clean up after your dog, and you'll also need a permit to enter the park. No foods or treats are allowed in the park, and one person can bring two dogs maximum.

Although Mokena has a few dog-friendly amenities of its own, you can find more Fido-friendly things to do just a short drive away.
