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!

My name is Patrick & I live in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. I've had dogs & cats my whole life, currently having a 17 year old calico named Jadzia. Love my doggies too but Jadzia doesn’t approve so I make up for it by dog sitting for friends & family, as well as taking volunteer opportunities. On top of that, I love being outside & walking, even when the weather isn't so great.

Dog Walking in Oak Brook

Oak Brook, IL is nestled about 20 miles off the coast, acting as a suburb of the major city of Chicago. The town takes up about 8 square miles of land, and is home to almost 8,000 residents. Although small, Oak Brook has been a great place to flock for avid dog lovers since 1958.

Although a suburb, a lot of the town's space is taken up by woods. One patch of woods is called Fullersburg Woods and hosts over 6 miles of dog-friendly trails. What makes this place even better for pups, is the abundance of benches, trash bins, water fountains and a clean-up station at the visitor center for the dogs. Dogs are allowed throughout the park, but as long as they remain on a leash and owners must clean up after their dogs.

After a good run or walk, head over to Stir Crazy Cafe, a dog-friendly venue with outdoor seating for you and Fido. With comfortable seating and free water for your dog, you can also enjoy their pan-Asian course.

These aren't the only options to be found around Oak Brook, and with 2 veterinarian clinics in town, what kind of dog lover wouldn't love Oak Bark, Illinois?
