“Pet care in the far western ‘burbs”

The safety of your pet(s) and your home are my first priority. My family has had a pet care service for six years through which we have helped clients housebreak puppies, ensure comfort of older friends, administer medication and provide last minute care for middle-of-the-night emergencies. Our clients are our family. I recognize that not all pets are at the same stage in their lives and I will let your furry friend set the pace. I am looking forward to meeting you both!

I grew up with a Pomeranian-Poodle named Noodles, and my roommate and I recently adopted a terrier/shepherd named Lanie. I also dog sit Whitney, a wonderful service dog, and we have such a good time together that she made me want to go pro. I'm in a good spot in life and am looking for canine-related work as I enter graduate school.

Dog Walking in Oswego

Oswego is a great place to live, as many of its citizens can attest--it’s doubled in population since 2000, and the Oswego lovers just keep coming! Oswego lovers are also dog lovers, and it shows in the eight vets located right in town, including two full service animal hospitals. That’s a lot of caring going towards man’s best friend! Toast the town by taking your dog to the Tap House Grill, an upscale pub eatery with a dog-friendly patio and mouthwatering classics ranging from buffalo wings to grilled ahi tuna.

If you want to work up a sweat, walk a portion of the Virgil Gilman Nature Trail. The entire trail is 11.4 miles long (making it a 22.8 mile round trip!) but the start of the trail is in Oswego. You can choose to walk just the starting portion, or keep going as long as you want. For a much easier time, the Saw Wee Kee Trail is a 5 mile out and back trail with moderate traffic and amazing views of the water.

Curl up tonight at AmericInn Lodge & Suites Oswego, where you and more than two large dogs can sleep tight for a small pet fee! Rest up, because tomorrow’s another pawsome day in Oswego!

Violet Patch Park in Oswego’s residential Boulder Hill neighborhood is an amazing place to take your dog, featuring a walking trail that runs close to the edge of the Fox River. The beautiful views from the water are matched by the other areas of the park, which focuses on undeveloped green space over modern park accomodations. You should bring your own water and a bowl for your dog to drink out of! Don’t worry that the park is completely lacking amenities, though. There are restrooms and picnic tables, so you can rest up after a walk through the park or enjoy lunch there.

The Hudson Crossing Park is a fantastic place to walk your dog. The park runs along the edge of the Fox River, providing amazing views and a tranquil atmosphere. The park itself has it all, from BBQ grounds and picnic tables, to sculptures and playground equipment. What dogs are going to love is the walking trails with lots of room to roam, so your pup won’t even mind staying on leash! Once you’ve worked up an appetite, Wolfs Crossing is home to the Oswego Inn, a dog friendly restaurant that specializes in hearty, delicious American classics like burgers, chili, and more. Dogs can join you on the patio!

If you’re looking for a refined and elegant place to dine with your dog, the Emerson Creek Pottery & Tea Room is a real treat. They have an outdoor porch where canine visitors are welcome to sit, stay, and enjoy a bowl of water while you sample the delicacies the Tea Room has that day. The menu is rotating and focuses on what’s in season and at the peak of flavor. Regulars recommend favorites like pesto chicken salad and their homemade mango salsa as refreshing, delicious foods. Bring a friend to hold your dog if you want to explore their pottery selections, as wagging tails are understandably not allowed near the pottery!

Prairie Point Community Park in the Lakeview Estates neighborhood is a great place to gather the whole family. Kids of all ages will enjoy the playground, summertime splash pad, and skate park. Furry friends will prefer the jogging trails, where on leash dogs can join you for moderately intense workouts along gentle slopes. There are picnic tables and benches throughout the park, but you should bring your own water bowl, as the park’s fountains are a bit too tall for most pups! Due to the park’s great amenities, this park is often pupular and busy, so shy dogs may prefer a quieter walk along the perimeter.

Ogden Falls Park is a small, community park in the Churchill neighborhood. It’s perfect for a quick walk with your dog. There are play structures, and a sports field that you can explore when it’s not in use. Dogs will love the comings and goings of people, and you can circle the park at a brisk pace for a good workout. If you’re in the Churchill neighborhood, this is definitely a fun and convenient place to let your dog work off some steam and sniff some interesting smells. It’s also a good destination for dogs who may not enjoy the crowds at larger parks.
