Hello! I'm a local illustrator who finds it imperative to get up and move between projects. I work part time at a doggy daycare when I’m not at my desk doing contract work, and so I’m no stranger to the company of dogs of any walk of life. Whether your pup is par for the course, or just needs a quick 30 minute loop around the neighborhood, I'm more than willing to ensure your pal gets the exercise they need out of our outing!

Hi, I’m Ron. I have had a few dogs while growing up. I love dogs and I have worked for a rescue shelter training the dogs hand signals and verbal commands so they can get adopted. I felt like it wasn’t even a job because I loved being with the dogs. I don’t have any certifications but I do plan on going to Animal Behavior College (ABC). I will take care of your friend just like I loved and treated all the dogs I have owned and trained.

Dog Walking in Racine

Racine, Wisconsin, finds itself at the Root River estuary and adjacent to Lake Michigan. The fair-sized city is at an acceptable distance from important hubs and is surrounded by nature. The city is an attractive place to live and visit for various reasons, including the lake.

The city of Racine has a lot of offer for dog owners as well. The more adventurous and enterprising can explore the surrounding woods. There is the Pike River Pathway for a shorter hike through nature. John's Dock and Freddie's Friki Tiki, two restaurant/bars in town, offer a magnificent view over Lake Michigan and are dog-friendly to boot.

Racine also has its own off-leash dog park, Johnson Dog Park. This park is huge compared to most dog parks; Johnson Dog Park offers 28 acres of space for dogs to run around and explore. There is a large variety in landscapes, from woodlands to open fields. Dogs can also go for a swim in the pond or the river.

The city offers plenty lodging opportunities for travelers with pets who just want to visit Racine for a short time. There are the budget friendly options, such as Super 8 and Knights Inn, as well as more luxurious pet-friendly rooms in town.

This neighborhood in the town of Mt/ Pleasant is home to the Pike River Pathway, a lovely, dog-friendly, Greenway style system of multi-use trails that straddle the Pike River. There is plentiful parking in 2 conveniently located lots, and the roomy trail surface is asphalt, allowing for bikes, running, and walking. Dogs love it here because it is also home to numerous species of wildlife, including frogs and birds in the adjacent wetlands, which is why they need to remain leashed on the trail. What an interesting placed for our super-sniffer canine companions to explore! This gem provides access to hundreds of acres of the reconstructed Pike River corridor.
