“I will sing for your pet.”

Hi, I'm Keith! I worked with every breed under the sun, from Chihuahuas to English Mastiffs, during my 5 years volunteering with the Metro Area Animal Adoption Association in Detroit. Due to allergies in the family I cannot live with animals anymore. Wag! has given me the opportunity to resume this passion, for which I am grateful.

Dog Walking in Yorkville

Around 50 miles west of Chicago, you’ll find the inviting and pet-friendly city of Yorkville, Illinois. Tucked into Kendall County, with easy access from the Illinois highway, Yorkville is a final location for pet parents looking for a new adventure with their doggos. Locals call Yorkville "the city with the heart of a river." Yorkville rests up against The Fox River, which flows swiftly into the Illinois River — giving your pup plenty of opportunities to hike alongside the water and splash in the shallows. Because of the Fox River, Yorkville residents often take up canoeing, kayaking, and hiking. A hot spot for all three is Silver Spring State Park, which is just west of Yorkville.

There are 3 veterinarians in Yorkville, with plenty more in the surrounding area. Pet parents also take comfort with the 6 groomers in town and 4 pet shops which pamper your pooch and make sure he has what he needs. Other inviting places for the pooches in town are the dog-friendly restaurants with outdoor dining and mouthwatering meals. You can work up an appetite at Steven G. Bridge Park, then head over to Mike & Denise's Pizzeria & Pub for a slice with Fido!

The charming, invitational allure is something no one needs to "paw-nder" over in Yorkville!

Do your dog love peanuts and cracker jacks? Then he'll love the Steven G. Bridge Park in the Bristol neighborhood! The park is baseball-themed and has wide open fields for a game of fetch. Or, you can make a picnic and watch a ball game. The park has three baseball fields, a bike trail, and all the amenities for you and your puppers. Once your stomachs are rumbling, head to Mike & Denise's for some authentic Chicago deep-dish. You can build your own or get one of the specialty pizzas. Mike & Denise's also have plenty of options in burgers, wraps, and pasta.

Does your dog love the Midwestern take on "Bark-B-Q?" Then the Fields of Farm Colony is the neighborhood for him. Smokey's Wood Pit BBQ calls this place home! At Smokey's, you can pull up with your pup. Then pull out feeling satiated after a plate of finger-lickin' deliciousness. The key to a good barbecue joint is just as much in the sides as it is in the sauce. Smokey's has some great sides, like their homemade mac n' cheese, coleslaw, and cornbread. These sides pair well with a brisket plate or a wood-fired "Pit Boss," piled with beef brisket, pulled pork, onion rings, and slaw!

Is your dog really laid-back and enjoys lazy afternoons curled up by your feet as you enjoy a cup of tea? If this description meets the canine, then Reservation Road is the neighborhood for your "doge." Within Reservation Road is Emerson Creek Tearoom & Pottery — a quaint pottery shop that also serves a full lunch. You can get entrees like the Holiday Flower Pot Salad made with greens, Swiss chard, and kale, grilled chicken, roasted beets, fried goat cheese, apples, cranberries, and pecans. Your dog is more than welcome to enjoy Emerson Creek with you for various events like the Backroads Vintage Market.

Does your dog crave the great outdoors and love to sniff out everything nature has to offer? He needs to live in the western swath of Yorkville, in the Circle Center neighborhood. Here, Fido will have quick access to parks like the Harris Forest Preserve. Harris has over 2.5 miles of hiking trails immersed in Oaks and Maples. You can climb over bridges with ravines and wetlands beneath you, or grill out in one of the 7 shelter areas. If you keep heading west in Circle Center, you'll also find Silver Spring Wildlife Area. Silver Springs is 1,350 acres of preserved forest running alongside Yorkville's Fox River. Fido's gonna love it!
