I have lived with pets (dogs, cats, fish, and even a hedgehog!) all my life. I worked as a dog walker and pet sitter while completing an internship a few years ago, and it was one of the best jobs I have ever had! Being around dogs makes me happy, and I am excited to spend time walking and caring for your pets!

Hi! My name is Adalee. I am a dog enthusiast and have been for as long as I can remember. Dogs have been in my home my entire life and each dog I’ve ever had was considered part of the family. I have previously worked for a pet supply store and am aware of pet products and issues that dogs might have. I am fun-loving and cautious at the same time. I understand that your dog is your baby as well, and I will treat them accordingly.

I am a dog lover and have two dogs of my own. I currently have an Akita/Shepard mix and a Great Dane, whom I walk on a daily basis. I have experience walking the smallest of small pups to 125 lbs+ dogs. My goal as a walker is to tire out dogs in my care in the safest way possible. I take a lot of pride in my work and hope that shows with happy pups!

“Jogs with dogs & let the pooches dictate the pace!”

I bring much love & attention to the pet care industry, having grown up around dogs since birth. As a child, I developed a strong affinity for all animals; so I began servicing our 4 legged friends. I earned the reputation for showing a great deal of responsibility while walking, interacting & managing our beloved furry family members, over extended periods/years. I have exercised dogs of all size, age & breed and in all weather conditions. Let this cardio/canine connection benefit us all!

“Understanding, thorough, caring”

I have always loved animals. I do not have a favorite pet. I actually found the love of animals from bringing in strays as a child and going through various training for Veterinary Ass/Tech positions. I really can't wait to provide an essential need for your pet. I have my own critters so I understand how important their care is to an owner/ pet parent.

Dog Walking in Paderborn

Paderborn is a very small town that shares its name with a rather better known city in Germany!  Paderborn, IL serves as a cluster for a widespread farming community. With a population of only 43 at the last census, Paderborn residents spend a lot of time engaging with the greater St. Clair community, and this extends to the lives of local Paderborn pooches! Paderborn is served by the greater St. Clair County community for veterinary care; neighboring Waterloo and Columbia have over half a dozen veterinary clinics between them, including animal hospitals, so dogs can play as hard as they want!


If you’re hungry and it’s warm outside, head to Karban’s Knotty Pines. This pub specializes in cold beer, mixed drinks, and a menu full of delicious pub classics. They do have outdoor tables, but call ahead if it’s a weekend evening to be sure that there’s room for your pup to join you on the patio. It’s a treat for you and your dog!


Paderborn is a great place to visit for anyone who’s interested in rural America, and seeing the way modern farms still survive in America’s heartland. Bring your dog and enjoy all that Paderborn has to offer.

Justamir Association Lake, only three miles outside of Paderborn in the township of Prairie Du Long, is a peaceful, natural and rustic find. Launch your canoe or kayak for a paw-some glide across the water with your pup.  Get in some good fishing for catfish, largemouth bass, crappie, rock bass and warmouth from the shore while your pooch does some off leash exploring.  There is plenty of undeveloped area to enjoy with your pup and water for a swim. Enjoy a walk along the shore of the lake, forging your own trail, as you listen for the sounds of birds and watch for signs of wildlife. Access is through private property and may require permission to reach the lake.

Konarcik Park, less than eight miles from Paderborn in the town of Waterloo, has a short walking trail, sport fields and modern playground equipment, including an enclosed playground for smaller children. Fishing is allowed in the lake with a valid fishing license. Your pup is welcome to enjoy the park, so long as he stays on leash. He will enjoy the walking trail as he sniffs around near the lake and through the beautiful open space covered by lush green grass. The tall conifer trees provide shade and cones for a game of fetch. Stop in at JV’s Downtown Bar & Grill where your pup can sit with you at one of the outside tables as you enjoy house specialties of hickory smoked pork and chicken.

Just 12 miles from Paderborn, Kaskaskia River State Fish and Wildlife on 20,000 acres hosts a 7-mile trail that is lightly trafficked near New Athens, Illinois. The flat, wide trail through the river bottoms and waterfowl refuge is a great place to look and listen for birds and wildlife. The trail is an easy hike, flat and open. You and your pup can be free to explore off leash. The trail travels past a lake for an opportunity to cool down after a long walk. After wet weather, the trail can be muddy, but is open for hiking and horseback riding. Be sure you and your pooch are wearing bright colors or limit activity during hunting season.
