Hi, my name is Julia and I have lots of experience with all kinds of animals. I have had several dogs in the past, and have two currently. They are my absolute best friends in the entire world, Molly and Bella. I’ve been responsibile for my neighbors dogs when they have been out of town or working late, and I also watch my family members dogs several times a month while they are traveling. I’ve always believed that walking your dog and spending time outdoors is an extremely important part of health and happiness. This is why I believe this job is perfect for me because I love meeting new animals and making them happy.

Dog Walking in Woodstock

Northwest from Chicago, Illinois, lies the community of Woodstock, Illinois. This splendid city is a favorite among tourists and dog owners alike for different reasons. The many festivals, historic buildings, and traditions make Woodstock a unique place. The sprawling woodlands of North Illinois allow an active lifestyle, with or without dogs.

Woodstock, Illinois, is part of McHenry County. There are two state parks in this county (Moraine Hills State Park and Glacial Park) and more than 20,000 acres conserved land. Woodstock is the perfect environment for those who want to break away from the busy city. Not only humans are in love with this area; horses and dogs enjoy exploring the woods of Woodstock.

Dog owners that do not wish to venture out in the woods but are looking for a way for their dogs to get some much-needed exercise are best served by the Bull Valley Dog Park. This newly opened off-leash dog park is fully fenced and offers 7 acres of playground for dogs to run around without a care in the world.

There are multiple pet-friendly hotels in Woodstock, Illinois, including Super 8 Woodstock and Best Western Woodstock Inn. It is, therefore, easy to plan a visit to Woodstock with animals.
