Hi, I’m located in Logan Square and parent to a nine year old rescued pit bull, and in the past have been foster parent to rescued dogs while they were awaiting placement in their forever homes. I love all kinds of dogs, big, small, and in between, and have a particular fondness for pit bulls and other bully breeds, because they’re so cute and sweet!

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 grew up with a beautiful Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd named Annie, and also took care of my next door neighbor's Italian Greyhounds almost every day from middle school to high school. I moved into Chicago after high school and became a freelance film director/editor. After a few months in the city I got a job with a local dogwalking company for about 8 months - definitely my favorite non-film job I've ever had. I moved to LA and NYC for a while, but I'm now living in Pilsen and am looking forward to biking around and hanging with pups again!

My history with dogs started when I was 5 and my mother brought home a black lab puppy. We named her Leigha and she became the love of our lives. She lived for 16 years and left me with a permanent love for dogs! Since then I have volunteered at the Humane Society and helped friends and family care for their dogs. I can't wait to meet yours!

“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!

Dog Walking in Palos Park

Surrounded by wooded wonderland and chock full of stately charm, Palos Park really has it all -- a small-town, neighborly vibe close to nature and just a 35-minute drive from Chicago. The village has an interesting history -- in the early 1900s, Palos Park was known as an artists’ retreat. While those days are mostly gone, the town has retained its passion for the arts. Visit in May and you and your pooch can take part in some outdoor events as part of the annual Fine Arts Fair!

Palos Park doesn’t have its own dog run, but it’s still a pretty fur-friendly place! The village might be small, but there’s certainly room for a veterinary clinic, and 24-hour care is available in nearby Moneka. If you and your pooch like hiking, you’re in luck -- you two will be spoiled for choice in terms of forests and preserves. You won’t struggle to find doggy dining options, either. Be sure to check out The Plush Horse, a furrific local ice cream joint that welcomes wagging tails at its outdoor tables. And if your four-legged friend longs to romp off-leash, don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of pawesome dog parks just a little further afield!

Make no bones about it -- a treat from the Twin Tails Market and Barkery is sure to get your pup’s tail wagging! This amazing dog boutique and bakery stocks everything from pigs ears and antlers to fresh-baked goodies, and helpful staff are always on hand to help you pick out something to suit even the pickiest pooch! Twin Tails also stocks a nice range of accessories, though they can be a bit pricey. Of course, owners need to eat, too, so consider chowing down afterward at Francesca Vicinato. Their calamari is the stuff of local legend, and they cater to canines outside.

With Swallow Cliff Woods right on your doorstep in Palos Park, you’d be barking mad not to pay a visit! This 800-acre preserve is a great place to go sledding in the winter. If you and your pooch are looking for a bit of a challenge, try the famous steps -- the steep staircase is carved into the cliff edge, and the views at the top are fabulous. Less athletic animals will be glad to know that there are also miles of easy to moderate trails to sniff and explore, running through gorgeous forest, by creeks, and across bridges. Remember to bring your own waste bags and water!

The Messenger Marsh Dog Park in Homer Glen is a real mutts-visit! There’s plenty of room to romp in this huge dog run. There’s also a separate small dog area, so your pooch can play and socialize be they big or little! Not only that, but the large dog area has its own wooded trail for curious canines to investigate. Like many dog parks in this part of Illinois, there’s a fee to use the off-leash area, but it’s not too steep -- five dollars for a day pass, and your pup will thank you! Bags are provided, but there’s no water fountain, so you’ll need to bring your own bottle.

Bremen Grove Off-Leash Dog Park is just a fifteen-minute drive from Palos Park, so it’d be a huge faux paw not to check it out! Both the large and small dog areas are pretty big, so there’s space enough for even the most energetic fur-ball to tire themselves out. Unfortunately, like the park at Homer Glen, there is a fee, and unlike the Messenger Marsh Dog Park, there’s no day pass option. If you live in the area, though, you might think that the $55 annual fee is worth it -- it works out at just over a dollar per week, and your pooch will thank you for it!

If you and your furry friend are looking for something different to do, why not take a day trip to Chicago and check out the Mercury Canine Cruise? Every Sunday morning, the Mercury welcomes pups aboard their boats for a riverside tour of the Chicago skyline. The cruise leaves from Michigan Avenue and sails all the way down to the lake, taking in some fascinating architecture along the way. Your pooch will need to be leashed, of course -- but the treats provided by the staff might go some way towards making up for it! Tickets are $22 for owners and $7 for their canine companions.
