    “Who let the dogs out?”

    As far back as I can remember my life has been filled with the joy of animals. As a child I grew up alongside a number of dogs with which I had an intimate role in training, feeding, and caretaking. In my teenage years I became a part time sitter and gained valuable experience in working with dogs of all types. Animals have always been an intrinsic part of my life and I hope to maintain this involvement well in to my future.

    I'm a nurse. I would love to walk and take care of your pup. I’ve been walking dogs for a few years now, and I can’t imagine not interacting with them frequently! I have a four year old beagle who we rescued in 2018. He’s gone through extensive training, so I have an array of knowledge about handling various types of dogs. I can take your dog out for a hustle if s/he is high energy, or I can let him/her sniff around and enjoy life. I’m flexible!

    Central Oak Forest

    Central Oak Forest is right in the middle of everything that Oak Forest has to offer its residents and visitors. While dogs are not permitted at the George Dunne National Golf Course, they are allowed to walk with you on leash at the nearby Cook County Forest. This is a phenomenal place for a hike or a longer walk on a weekend morning. You will want to bring snacks, a good hiking harness, and plenty of drinking water for your adventures in this part of town. You should always hike with a (human) buddy, and maybe they can bring a furry buddy for your dog as well!

    North Oak Forest is bordered by the actual forest that gives this city its name. You'll enjoy the beautiful green scenery that surrounds the neighborhood. Camp Sullivan is a great place just north of town if you enjoy spending some real time in the great outdoors away from it all in a tent with your dog. Make sure you camp with good friends and their pawesome pups. Tents and RV’s are permitted in the park, weather permitting. The area can get heavy snowfall during the winters, so keep an eye on the weather if you will be traveling during the more frigid months.
