Dog Areas in Rockton

The cozy village of Rockton boasts that it's "the kind of village that people fall in love with," and when you and Fido visit, you'll see why! Here, you'll get the best of both worlds: big-city amenities and small-town charm and friendliness. This beautiful village with a rich history takes care of its canine citizens and visitors; Rockton has two veterinary hospitals that provide quality care for all the pups in town.

Other than the dog-friendly Airbnb rentals, there are no places in Rockton where you and your pup can lodge together. Alternatively, you can travel just 13 miles to Rockford, IL, where you can choose from more than 20 different pet-friendly accommodations.

If you and your pup are looking to sniff out some outdoor adventure, you'd be barking mad to miss Hononegah Forest Preserve! Plenty of trails, wildlife, and scenic views make this a destination worth visiting. Don't forget to bring waste baggies and water to keep this green space clean and beautiful!

Rockton lies between two big cities, where you'll find plenty of restaurants, cafes and other dog-friendly destinations to visit. One is the previously mentioned Rockford, which is the third most populous city in Ilinois, and the other one is Janesville, located around 20 miles away from Rockton.
