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 Willow Springs

Located along the Des Plaines River, the village of Willow Springs is a wonderful place to soak up the rural environment southwest of Chicago. The village’s border touches Buffalo Woods and Willow Springs Woods, which are charming recreational facilities where you can sit back and relax with Fido. If you want more dog-friendly fun, feel free to travel around to Lemont, Woodridge, or Lisle, offering dog parks and other amenities, as well as 10 veterinary clinics in total.

Willow Springs Woods is a lush and pawesome forest preserve with multi-use trails available for exploring year-round! Hidden in a beautiful forest setting, a 3.1-mile loop with an elevation of 144 feet is perfect for any sort of activity you want to enjoy. Run, walk, or hike with your leashed Fido for as long as you like, but don't forget to bring some drinking water and waste bags with you! 

Tired after your adventure? You may want to sit back and relax on the covered patio at Greco’s of Willow Springs, an Italian eatery with classic, authentic fare and a bar. This family-owned restaurant set in the heart of the village, on the western edge of Willow Springs Woods, provides picturesque riverfront views. Leashed canine customers are very welcome here!

The Oak Park area in Tinley Park, Illinois is outlined by Oak Park Avenue. Shopping malls and cafes can be found in the northwestern corner of the area, but the fun starts at Bremen Grove Park, which is home to a highly-rated dog park with two enclosures for double the fun!

Once you're here, enjoy the charming natural landscape and play areas complete with picnic tables and shaded seating. If your buddy gives you the slip, check to see if he's mosied on over to the grill area to steal a tasty treat from some local picnickers!

Brookside Glen is a beautiful neighborhood in Tinley Park located within walking distance from Lake of the Glens Park. Mostly residential, Brookside Glen is the perfect place to visit if you're looking to escape the daily grind. Union Creek Park is a lovely community park that features a pawesome doggy spot as well! Rarely crowded -- probably because you have to obtain a PIN code before entering -- this area is a wonderful asset with a huge open space. The park is open to residents and non-residents, but you'll have to provide a copy of recent vaccination records to the park district. Bring some water and waste bags with you when visiting.
