    Hi, I'm Mitch. I grew up in Chicago with a Labrador Retriever named Bailey. I have worked as a dog walker in Logan Square, which has given me a lot of hands on experience working and interacting with a variety of dogs!

    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!

    A little drive north of Riverside is Oak Park, where you will find the Maple Park Dog Park. Your buddie will love playing off-leash in the 12,000 square foot space made just for four-legged fun. There are benches for you to relax at while he plays, and a canine water fountain available. You will need to first purchase a permit from the Park District of Oak Park to get through the electronic entry system. Afterwards, head to Solerno’s for some top-notch southern-Italian grub. Your pup is very welcome to sit by you at one of their outdoor tables while you enjoy your pizza, pasta, sandwich, ribs or some of the many appetisers on offer.

    Let Fido run free to his heart’s content at the Miller Meadow off leash dog area in Forest Park, just north of Riverside. You will need to purchase a permit from the Forest Preserve of Cook County, but the purpose-built three acres of doggie heaven is worth looking at. There is also a walking trail and play fields here for some extra fun, but you will need to put your pooch back on his lead for these. For a bite to eat in this area, head to Five Guys or R Place, where you can enjoy your meal with pup in tow at an outdoor table.

Not far from here is Veterans Park, with another paved path Fido will enjoy walking with you. These parks require you to keep your pooch on a lead, and always clean up after him. For something to eat after exploring the parks, head to dog-friendly Big Corner Tavern and grab an outdoor table. Tacos, burgers, sandwiches, wraps – you will not leave here hungry!
