I’ve grown up with dogs. I adopted my girl Jill about 6 months ago, she turned 7 after the first month. My heart goes out to those older shelter pups and I’ve dedicated myself to rescuing those “less desirable” doggos. I consider any dog a puppy no matter their age. Love small and large dogs!

Dog Walking in Rochelle

Rochelle is a city located along the Kyte River that once served as a shipping hub for the surrounding farms, then became a meat-packing and produce-canning center. Today, informally known as “Hub City,” it has lots of outdoor spaces for furtastic activities with your fur-baby, including parks, lakes, streams, and rivers. And if your fur-pup needs medical care for an illness or injury, rest assured that help is nearby. With 2 veterinary hospitals in Rochelle and several others nearby, your fur-baby will be better soon!

The dog-friendly Four Sisters Bike Path is a 4-mile multi-use trail that connects 3 Rochelle parks and travels through the suburban landscape as well as fields and meadows with more pastoral scenes.  Beginning at Atwood Park and arcing north to Flannigan Park, then south along the Kyte River to Tilton Park, Four Sisters is paved its entire length, so you and Fido will likely encounter bicyclists and skaters along your route, and it is also wheelchair accessible. The city has marked the path as it courses past homes, schools and an athletic complex, and has provided 2 water fountains along the way. There are a few low-traffic street crossings so be sure to keep Fido tightly leashed at these intersections. Parking is available at both endpoints, and at Flannigan Park. Pawsome!

Whether you and your pup live in Rochelle or are just visiting, you’ll find lots to do here and in the surrounding communities!

The 3 parks through which the Four Sisters Bike Path travels are great destinations for dog-friendly activities in their own right! Atwood Park features a 3-mile path for walking and running with Fido in tow, and lots of lawn for on leash romping and lying about with a picnic lunch. It also features a cool playground for the kiddos, and a bandstand with seating for concerts and other events. Flannigan Park is also a family-oriented park with a playground, and of course the Bike Path traveling through it. Picnic tables are scattered throughout for those al fresco meals with family and the pooch! Tilton Park is primarily focused on its sports facilities, like basketball courts, but it also has plenty of grassy areas and trees which make visiting the park fun just to be outdoors. Walks with the fur-pup, picnics or just throwing down a blanket and relaxing are all pawsome ways to enjoy Tilton!
