My name is Kendra and I am a mom to 3 dogs. I have a puggle named Bella, a boxer mix named Luna and an Am Staff / Golden Retriever mix named Mia. One of my favorite things to do is take all 3 for a walk. I am an endurance athlete, and I compete in both marathons and triathlons for Team PAWS, a charity that raises money to help save the homeless pets of Chicago. I am comfortable around all dogs - my husband always says I like dogs more than people and I tend to agree. I look forward to getting to know your furry family member.

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!

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!
