If and when your pup does get tuckered out and you get the craving for a snack, there are many options in the Loop where you and your dog are welcome to take a breather, especially during patio season when businesses open up their outdoor venues to wagging tails. Food trucks in the area are an obvious and simple option as there's never any fuss of bringing an animal into a restaurant.
When walking a dog, there won't be an issue with safely crossing streets, but you may find it difficult to control a pup if he's anxious around loud noises, lots of movement, or people. Of course, if your eventual goal is to help your canine friend overcome these fears, then well-planned exposure is key. If you are keen on walking a dog around the Loop, keeping him on a short leash is not only considerate to others walking around you, but also safer for him.
Millennium Park acts as the heart of its city, pumping activity, cultural life, and works of art through its core and into the lively city that surrounds the park's lush, green borders. As the unofficial frontyard of the Windy City, Millennium hosts a number of community events throughout the year for its citizens and tourists alike. Grant Park is a neighbor of Millennium Park and while smaller, it's not without its attractions as well. Whether you walk on two legs or four, these public spaces have miles of footpaths, as well as plenty to do and see.
