I currently own a 10 yr. old Dalmatian Mix (Bella) and 6 yr. old German Shepherd (Rex), and have had them both since they were puppies. I am experienced with the care it takes to train/raise a dog from the puppy phase to a full-grown companion! Everything that a pet owner can go through, I have gone through myself, so I feel very comfortable handling all types and sizes of dogs, and providing exceptional care when I get the opportunity to take your best friend for a walk/run! I can do walks in your neighborhood, drive them to a nearby dog park or play with them in your own home. What works best for you and your dog is my top priority! I hope to hear from you!

Hi! I'm Susan and I've been an animal/nature lover all my life. Dogs have been a part of my family for the past 37 years along with fish and birds.

Dog Walking in Wadsworth

Wadsworth, Illinois was named after E. S. Wadsworth. Mr. Wadsworth was a big stockholder for a railroad company that passes through this quaint village. It's also situated in a scenic spot, and, best of all, it offers a few dog-friendly activities for you and your pooch to enjoy together!

You and your fur baby will love dining at the Savanna House Restaurant & Bar. This establishment serves home-style meals as well as breakfast. This Fido-friendly eatery has five outdoor tables available for you and your pup to enjoy your meal together. The locals love the craft beer selection available here, and the bar stays open late so you can stop in for a meal at dinnertime or a drink in the wee hours of the morning.

There is also a great trail for you and your canine friend to hike in this city: the Des Plaines River Trail, which is part of the Rails-To-Trails program. This program takes old rail lines and turns them into trails that can be used for walking, hiking and biking.  This trail is a long one at 52.6 miles -- we don't recommend tackling it all in one go! The trail is paved, crushed gravel, and dirt. There are plenty of trees for shade along the trail, and you'll find plenty of picnic areas and water fountains along the way to stop and rest. You'll need to bring supplies for cleaning up after your furry friend.

Just 15 miles from Wadsworth, you'll find The Prairie Wolf Dog Park. This off-leash dog park encompasses 44 fenced-in acres, so your canine pal has plenty of room to explore. There is a pond for your furry friend to make a splash in, but keep in mind it is not fenced in. The road to the lake/pond is gravel, and there are trails to walk on as well. Your pooch will love running and romping in the grass, but don't worry if he gets dirty; there's a hose near the bathrooms for you to wash the grass and mud out of his fur. Pack up some essentials such as water, towels and doggie waste bags. Put on your walking shoes and enjoy a day of fun in the sun with your pooch!
