I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment. Due to a heavy school schedule I had to leave that job but now that Wag! exists I can still work with pups!

I am a semi retired professional with a passion for animals. Growing up on a farm in North Carolina I was exposed to a lot of dogs: hunting dogs, house dogs, guard dogs, herding dogs, etc. The advantage of living on the farm was that you got to play with the working animals when they weren’t working and I spent a lot of time with dogs learning valuable lessons of how they interact with people and other animals and how they think. All through my life I have been around dogs and cats. I have owned three dogs of my own and have had relationships with other dogs belonging to roommates housemates and neighbors. I am very attuned to the challenges of having a pet in the city and understand the importance of seeing that the animals get the proper attention and care. Caring for dogs is not just a job for me it’s a passion and it’s important that I give each dog I encounter the same attention that I would give my own dog.

Dog Walking in Mt Prospect

Mount Prospect is a village located in Cook County, Illinois, in the Elk Grove and Wheeling Townships. This densely populated village is just 22 miles from Chicago, so big city amenities are just a short drive away. Mount Prospect is very dog-friendly and cares about its canine visitors, which is evident in the village's 6 veterinary practices.

Mount Prospect doesn't have any dog-friendly hotels or lodging options -- apart from a few AirBnB rentals -- but it does have several dog-friendly eateries where you can grab a bite! Emerson's Ale House is an excellent place to enjoy a craft beer. Craving some breakfast food? Head to the puntastic Eggsperience Pancakes and Cafe! El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant, El Burrito, and Chipotle Mexican Grill all serve mouthwatering Mexican favorites. Menchie's Frozen Yogurt is a furrific place to get a sweet treat. All establishments welcome leashed dogs at the outdoor tables.

Work off all those calories at Melas Park, which even has a designated dog park for off-leash playtime! Don't forget to bring your own supplies, like doggie waste bags and water.

Mount Prospect is pawfect for pooches and people who want to stay close to the Windy City but prefer a quieter, peaceful area.

Prairie Wolf Dog Park is one of the largest dog parks in the area, so you'd be barking mad not to visit at least once!
