Dog Walking in Oak Forest

Oak Forest is a suburban city located 24 miles southwest of downtown Chicago, and is part of Cook County and the metropolitan area of Chicago. There are many well-known communities near Oak Forest worth noting, like Crestwood, Markham, and Country Club Hills. But you won't need to leave town to find dog-friendly fun! You'll find many neighborhoods inside of Oak Forest where you and your traveling canine will feel more than welcome.

There are two Fido-friendly restaurants within Oak Park if you want to dine with your dog while you're here. Marcotte’s Bar and Grill offers both beverages and bar fare that you can enjoy with your dog in their outdoor seating area. Doug’s Dogs is another popular spot for dog owners looking for a meal while out with their pups. Their signature Italian food and hot dogs that will make your jealous pup’s mouth water. Be sure to bring extra treats to reward your dog for good restaurant behavior! (And a water bowl probably isn't a bad idea, either.)

Dog owners love to take their pups for walks through the residential streets found in Oak Forest. Make sure you keep your dog safely on leash as you make your way around town. You're sure to meet another tail-wagger or two on your adventures in Oak Forest!
