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 Niles

The Village of Niles, just north of Chicago, is a beautiful spot to visit with your dog in Cook County. There are many walking trails and woodland areas to explore, as well as a great choice of places to eat. And with two animal hospitals in town, should Fido run into any trouble, you will be covered!

For a lovely hike through nature with your pup, check out the Miami Woods. This forest preserve covers 113 acres and has a 1.5-mile paved section of the North Branch Trail running through it. This trail extends a total of 19.7 miles along the North Branch of the Chicago River, and is a popular place for walking and biking. There are many picnic groves throughout Miami Woods to stop for a bite to eat or a little rest, or you can continue south along the trail through the Niles Park District for more places to see. You will need to keep your dog leashed in the woods.

If you are hungry after your big walk, head to one of Niles’s many pup-friendly eateries where you can sit with your dog at an outside table. Play Book is a sports bar with all the classics – wings, burgers, pasta, sandwiches or salads. Goodi’s has a Greek-style menu, and Bobby’s Charcoal Ribs is a popular place for a delicious burger or plate of ribs.

Niles has a lot to offer visitors with dogs, so stop by and check it out!

Linne Woods in neighboring Morton Grove offers a quiet tree-filled place to go for a walk with your pup. Well-maintained paths are paved or gravel, and the terrain is easy. These trails take you along the North Branch of the Chicago River and through woodlands, so keep your eyes peeled for the many animals that call this area home, such as ducks and even deer. The North Branch Trail system runs through here, but there are other trails to explore as well. Pack your picnic and plenty of water for a lovely day out in the woods with your fur-buddy on a lead by your side.

South of Niles in Chicago is Wildwood Park, where you can take your dog for a little walk around the paved paths or stretch out on the grass together. He will need to stay on a lead here as it is a public park, but there is plenty of space and tracks to wander. Make sure you pack some clean up bags, and water for you both. Afterwards, head to Wildwood Tavern and enjoy your meal at one of their 15 pet-friendly outside tables. Steak, whitefish, salmon, ribs, salads, soups and plenty of sides are on the menu here, so you are sure to find something you love.

Norwood Dog Park in the north of Chicago is just a few miles south of Niles, and is the place to go when Fido needs a little off-leash freedom. Set over 13 acres, this fenced dog park has everything you need – benches for you to comfortably sit at, a doggie drinking fountain, waste disposal bags and plenty of parking close by. After your pup has worn himself out at the park, take a walk up to Mo Dailys and grab a bit to eat. Your dog can happily relax by your side at one of the outdoor tables, while you enjoy a refreshing drink and a burger, plate of wings, soup or specialty sandwich.
