​Hi! I have had the great pleasure of having dogs in my life since I was born. One of the things I enjoy the most is walking our dogs, enabling them to get fresh air, stretch their legs, and read the neighborhood canine news. Last year, we had the honor of becoming a forever home for a puppy mill rescue. She had it rough the first few years of her life but now is doing great and has become a cherished member of the family.​

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.
