“Pet care in the far western ‘burbs”

The safety of your pet(s) and your home are my first priority. My family has had a pet care service for six years through which we have helped clients housebreak puppies, ensure comfort of older friends, administer medication and provide last minute care for middle-of-the-night emergencies. Our clients are our family. I recognize that not all pets are at the same stage in their lives and I will let your furry friend set the pace. I am looking forward to meeting you both!

Dog Walking in St. Charles

The great thing about suburbs like St. Charles, Illinois, is that there are plenty pet lovers found. And where you can find many pets, you will also find many things to do for said pets. St. Charles is no different, and the community has made sure that dogs do not have to stick to digging holes in their own back yard.

The first stop is the West Side Community Dog Park, which offers 3 - 4 acres of safe fun for small and large dogs alike. Interesting touches are the availability of agility equipment and supply of fresh water. The East Side Sports Complex dog park, located on the other site of St. Charles, is slightly larger and adds a pool for dogs to swim in the mix. Great times!

Spending a day in St. Charles with a dog does not necessarily hinder your movement. In the neighboring city of Geneva, you can shop until you drop in the Geneva Commons outdoors shopping centre which features Wet Nose, a pet boutique. In town, there are at least two restaurants that allow their visitors to enjoy typical American cuisine outside with their dog to conclude the day.

Nature lovers regularly visit the Pottawatomie Park, which is located alongside the Fox River. While dogs have to be on the leash, the sheer size of this natural beauty - over 92 acres - ensure that no dog will be full of energy after this walk. It is even possible (and a ton of fun!) to hop on a riverboat cruise from here!
