My name is Sophie, and I am a dog lover through and through. My family rescued and trained three dogs while I was growing up, and they were a big part of our family. We were very involved with the rescue that saved our dogs, and I hope to make dog adoption easier for others with my commitment to dog-walking. I was a dog sitter throughout my time in college, and I love walking dogs to give them the exercise and outdoor time they need to be healthy, loving members of the family.

Dog Walking in Spring Grove

Spring Grove is a small village in McHenry County. Located in an area known as Illinois’ largest concentration of lakes, this town definitely has its fair share of natural beauty and outdoor recreation.  

The aptly named Chain O’ Lakes State park is situated in Spring Grove. This 6,500 acre park borders Grass Lake, Marie Lake, and Nippersink Lake, as well as the Fox River. While boaters and anglers come in droves to enjoy the park’s watersports, your canine buddy will be more interested in the hiking trails. There are four trail systems throughout the park. You’ll find trails as short as a quarter of a mile all the way to six miles in length. Let your pup be the guide as you venture into the forests of spruce, oak, birch, and hickory. Keep your eyes open for deer, rabbits, badgers, and much more.

If your pup is having too much fun and doesn’t want to leave Chain O’ Lakes, there are over a 100 pet friendly campsites available. Bring your tent and an extra sleeping bag for your dog, and stay a day or two. After hiking all day, she’ll love cozying up to a campfire.

Spring Grove dogs sure are lucky to have such pawsome places right in their own backyard!
