    “A walked dog is a happy dog!”

    Hi there! My name is Shelli and I grew up having a dog as long as I can remember. I've had both big dogs and small dogs and loved them all. I currently have a lab heeler mix named Gary and he's not just a pet, he's family. I believe that a fit and healthy pet is a happy pet. I look forward to meeting your pet; making sure they are well cared for and safe during our time together and having a great walk together!

    “You love them, I walk them!”

    Hello dog owners! I am shaina, and I am here to help you. I have always had a passion for animals, and while I’m at school at ISU I often help out at the wishbone dog shelter. I am very familiar with a variety of dogs, and I fed, brushed, walked, and attended to the dogs at wishbone often. I also have a golden retriever of my own, so I am very comfortable with our furry friends. I would love to do whatever is best for you and your dogs.

    “Very Experienced in Animal Care”

    Hi my name is Kyle and I have many years of dog experience under my belt. I currently work at the Humane Society of Central Illinois where I deal with all different breeds and ages of dogs. I love walking the dogs at work and do extra walks for them daily to get them some enrichment while they are in our care. I have experience with most walking equipment setups. I love dogs and have dealt with all types of temperaments. Also at work I try to help dogs with their walking mannerisms.

    I am an actor based in New York City and craving some puppy love! I had a gorgeous golden retriever, Callie, for my whole childhood, and I definitely miss being around a pet. I have a few years of experience with dog-sitting different types of dogs, and I want to make each one feel equally loved and cared for. I know it can be difficult to leave your pet with someone else, so I promise treat them with nothing but love and positivity!

    My name is Jacob. I'm a student at Illinois State university, and have been working with and around dogs for a large part of my life. In 7th grade I started volunteering at a doggy daycare because my mom wouldn't buy me a dog of my own. Now, I do have a dog of my own, but still love working with all dogs. I've been a dog-lover since early childhood, despite my mild allergy to their dander.

    Greenbriar

    A spacious residential area, Greenbriar's wide sidewalks are perfect for an urban dog walk, and this neighborhood also provides easy access to Shepard Park. Not only will you find picnic shelters, basketball courts and a playground here, but also a large, fenced-in dog park. For owners who do not like small breeds mixing with large breeds, this park is perfect, as there are separate sections for small and large dogs. Being a wide open space with plenty of benches around, this is a great spot for both humans and dogs to socialize and make new friends. Although you will need to bring doggie bags, a water pump is available to keep the dogs hydrated. Keep in mind that to enter this dog park, your pooch will need to be up-to-date on all vaccinations, and be wearing a rabies vaccination tag.

    This Normal neighbourhood is where you will find Maxwell Park. This large and spacious park has some pawsome walking trails that follow a creek, with footbridges in place to enable you and your pup to cross back and forth. Maxwell Park also boasts a fenced-in dog park, where you will be able to let your pooch off the lead to run free with other dogs. You will need to bring some doggie bags with you, as well as a bowl, but don't worry about drinking water, since there are plenty of water fountains dotted around the park.

    Redbird Estates is a quiet residential area, with wide streets that are perfect for a leisurely dog walk. Of course, Fido will likely want a bit more excitement, so head on over to Fairview Park, which offers up 45 acres of greenery to sniff around in, as well as several scenic walking trails to choose from. A lead is essential here, but with lakes, gardens, pavilions and more for you both to explore, your dog won't mind staying by your side! There are picnic shelters throughout the park, so don't forget to bring a snack for when you and your pup decide to stop for a rest.

One of the highlights is the Hidden Creek Nature Sanctuary, which stretches out for five and a half acres. Complete with dirt trails, walking paths, and even a butterfly garden, you and your pooch could easily spend hours here. The grassy picnic area provides the perfect spot to stop for a bite to eat, although don't forget to bring some water, as well as a treat, for your furry friend too.

This is the area to head to if you would like to treat your pup to a meal, as there are a number of dog-friendly restaurants here, such as D.P Dough, which specializes in calzones. Medici, which is built around a mulberry tree and serves up tasty gastro pub dishes, is also located here, while Emack & Bolio's Ice Cream is the ideal café to visit for some dessert, and even has a water fountain for your pooch to sip from.
