I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment. Due to a heavy school schedule I had to leave that job but now that Wag! exists I can still work with pups!

I am a semi retired professional with a passion for animals. Growing up on a farm in North Carolina I was exposed to a lot of dogs: hunting dogs, house dogs, guard dogs, herding dogs, etc. The advantage of living on the farm was that you got to play with the working animals when they weren’t working and I spent a lot of time with dogs learning valuable lessons of how they interact with people and other animals and how they think. All through my life I have been around dogs and cats. I have owned three dogs of my own and have had relationships with other dogs belonging to roommates housemates and neighbors. I am very attuned to the challenges of having a pet in the city and understand the importance of seeing that the animals get the proper attention and care. Caring for dogs is not just a job for me it’s a passion and it’s important that I give each dog I encounter the same attention that I would give my own dog.

Dog Walking in Villa Park

Villa Park is a village in DuPage County, Illinois with a population of 21,800. It's part of the Chicago Metropolitan Area, so you won't be far from the amenities of the Windy City. The three animal hospitals and animal clinic in Villa Park take good care of its canine residents and visitors, so you can rest easy knowing your pup is in good hands should an emergency arise.

If you decide to visit this interesting village, you can lodge at the budget-friendly Motel 6 Chicago West Villa Park, which welcomes canine guests. Villa Park also has AirBnB rentals, although pet policies and fees vary for each accommodation.

If you’re feeling a little bit adventurous while you're in Villa Park, you should take the time to visit the Illinois Prairie Path. This pawpular trail stretches for many miles, and is considered one of the best hiking trails in the state. The Great Western Trail (DuPage Parkway Section) also runs through Villa Park, so you and Fido can explore both and decide which you like better.

If you're a history buff, you should check out the Villa Park Historical Society & Visitors Center. No dogs are allowed in the museum, unfortunately.

Villa Park doesn't have any dog parks of its own, so you'll have to drive outside of city limits to find off-leash fun. Head to Whalon Dog Park in East Naperville, just 18 miles from Villa Park. This off-leash park encompasses 8 acres so your pooch has plenty of room to play. If you have a smaller pup, there is a separate 2.5-acre area designated especially for dogs under 30 pounds. There are shelters and benches in the park where the dog owners can hang out and watch over their canine friends. The great thing about this park is that it includes an exercise area with lots of agility equipment.

One of them is for small pups, while the other one is for large doggos. Before you play here, you'll have to get a permit and provide proof of current vaccinations. There is no water source in the park, so make sure that you bring plenty of water with you. You'll also need to bring some doggie waste bags to help keep the park clean for all visitors.

The ground is covered in grass, and even has a little stream where pups can have a splashin' good time.

Around 20 miles away from Villa Park is a furrific dog park that your pup is sure to love: Beck Lake Dog Park! This park is pretty massive, with 44 acres of fenced area that includes a lot of amenities. There are wide open fields and trails that you can explore, enclosed spaces for training, and even a swimming pond! There are also drinking fountains so you don’t have to bring your own water. The only downside is that this park requires membership to enter. Every dog owner has to provide proof of vaccination and a fecal test in order to join to ensure the safety of all the pups that play here.
