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 will sing for your pet.”

Hi, I'm Keith! I worked with every breed under the sun, from Chihuahuas to English Mastiffs, during my 5 years volunteering with the Metro Area Animal Adoption Association in Detroit.

Dog Walking in New Lenox

You'll find a hos-pup-itable place for your dog in the tight-knit community of New Lenox, Illinois. New Lenox residents come together for various events, like outdoor movies and seasonal events throughout the idyllic Illinois streets. Under an hour away from the Windy City, the village has a more rural charm that keeps tails wagging and neighbors waving. Just north of New Lenox is the Wauponsee Glacial Trail, which travels 22.2 miles from the Sugar Creek Preserve to the neighboring city of Joliet. There a bunch more Illinois trails that make great scenic hikes with Fido!

On top of trails and nature preserves, New Lenox has six veterinarians and plenty of pet shops for dog parents to keep the dog's nose wet and tail wagging! The pet-friendliness extends into the Midwestern culinary scene that offers both mom-and-pop style restaurants, like the Pot Belly Sandwich shop in Prairie Ridge to more sophisticated places like the La Vita Dolce in Haines Oakview. There are village events every week that get the community together in New Lenox, so you and your pup will never be in short supply of good times. The only 'ruff' part about this village is figuring out what you want to do first!

Is your dog half canine, half pig? If your dog races to his bowl the moment he hears the kibbles drop, then the Prairie Ridge neighborhood is definitely the place for your doggie gourmand. Prairie Ridge is home to the Potbelly Sandwich Shop. The New Lenox location offers tasty sandwiches like the Pizza Sub or the hummus-spread Mediterranean. At Potbelly's, Fido is more than welcome to grab a seat with you in the outside seating area while you chomp down. If you're looking for something even greasier, Culver's is also in Prairie Ridge. Nothing better than sinking your teeth into a juicy Culver's burger with your furry best friend.

Does your dog love to smell the flowers and chase the birds? Then he'll love the Old Plank Road Trail that has an access point in the Haines Oakview neighborhood. The neighborhood itself mirrors Old Plank both in beauty and in fun-loving spirit. Old Plank is 22 miles long and connects with other major Illinois trails, like the Thorn Creek Trail. Along the way, you and your pup can see bald eagles and flora like the narrow leaf sunflower. After the views, you can head to the classic French bistro, Cafe Touché. Here, you can get an order of Canard Rôti alongside your four-legged child.

Does your dog graze and lounge all day as if he were a cow? Then settle your lackadaisical doggie down in The Oaks neighborhood. The Oaks hosts the Oberweis dairy, which specializes in all things "udderly" delicious, like ice cream pie, premium specialty milk, and cheese you wouldn't believe. You can take your dog along for the dairy binge or have your goods delivered to your home. After your fill of ice cream, you two can run down to the Hickory Creek Preserve for some trailblazing exploration.

Is your dog in need of some primal wolf-revilement? Another neighborhood that connects to the Old Plank Road Trail is Butternut Creek Woods — a perfect place for Fido to get in touch with his wolf ancestry. You can hike along the trail, or head over to the Fido-friendly White Street Cafe for the White Street Sliders or a bruschetta platter. If you're hankering for some authentic Italian flavors, head to La Dolce Vita for a gourmet experience that is completely dog-friendly. Enjoy Italian entrees like Risotto Bolognese or Bistecca Di Manzo Alla Vesuvio at this pet-friendly paradise.

When your dog barks, do you think he's saying, "City pups just don't get it!"? If so, then your dog would love the agrarian remnants of the Spencer Road neighborhood. There's plenty of space, and the stars above are beautiful for night walks with Fido. Within Spencer Road is the Hadley Valley Preserve. Hadley Valley has over 726 acres of protected land with more than 15,000 different species of animals within several diverse habitats. Your dog will be at home in this rustic preserve with tons of hiking trails perfect for a day outing that will bring your pup back to the times of "Jurassic Bark!"
