I have had dogs mys entire life, all were large breeds except one small. I also provided dog care for those in temporary need of shelter and care. I believe a healthy diet and exercise is key for a happy dog. I have taken several dog training courses and know how to keep calm and show no fear around a dog who is barking or asserting dominance. I understand the different behaviors and traits in each breed and deal with each dog appropriately.

I'm Bianca, I've loved animals all my life and grew up surrounded by dogs and cats my entire life.My love of animals started at a very age and I knew I wanted to work with all types of animals when I got older. Before working with Wag! I pet sat and walked for my family, friends and neighbors. I'm reliable, discreet, I pay attention to your dog's needs, I love walks and I'm genuinely concerned about your dog. Families have described me as a responsible,kind and fun-loving person I love being a pet sitter/dog walker because it gives me the opportunity to meet and bond with so many new pets and their owners. I enjoy all the different personalities of our client's pets and it's rewarding when an animal loves seeing you when you walk in the door. I can assure you that I will treat your fur babies like they were my own, not only because I'm an animal lover, but because it's how I want my "babies" treated while I'm away.

Dog Walking in Park Forest

Park Forest is a far southern suburb of Chicago. This community is a wonderful place where dogs and their owners can get out and explore the outdoors. There are over 400 acres of parkland, including an off-leash dog park, located here. For your pup's healthcare needs, you can find a veterinary clinic in town.

A great place to take your furry friend for a walk through the forest is the Thorn Creek Trail, located just east of town. You can park off West 26th Street to connect with the 3.5-mile paved pathway. Leashed dogs are allowed to join you here. Make sure you bring waste bags and some water.

Another puptastic place to go walking or jogging with your special pal is the Old Plank Road Trail. This asphalt pathway stretches through Cook and Will Counties and is part of the National Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. Pass through suburban and natural areas as you hike along the trail with your pooch.

Take a walk through the fields with your canine companion at Winnebago Park off Wildwood Drive. There's a nice walking trail that winds through this undeveloped facility. Dogs can join you here as long as they're on a leash and you clean up after them.

Park Forest and the surrounding areas offer a range of outdoor activities that you and your furry friend can experience together.
