As Illinois' biggest city outside Chicago (metro area population 350,000), Rockford has lots to offer to pets and pet sitters. The city operates four Canine Corners off-leash dog parks (annual resident fee $30 non-residents $40), and dog sitters traditionally favor the runs at the four acres of Searls Park. There's also a Canine Corners at nearby Rock Cut State Park, a top destination for pet sitters and their furry guests for year-round on-leash walking and nature trails along the Rock River that settlers once forded to give the community its name. Pet walkers are on display at the outdoor Klehm Aboretum & Natural Garden, but dog sitters are essential for the Burpee Museum of Natural History downtown, adjacent to the Discovery Center and Rockford Art Museum - Man's Best Friend isn't allowed at these attractions. Fortunately, DogVacay.com connects pet parents with trusted and insured pet sitting and home dog boarding services in Rockford, IL.
The town's mix of historic and contemporary buildings lead to pet promenading, especially in the pleasant springs and falls, and dog sitters frequent pet friendly restaurants such as Mary's Market and Cafes and Brewsky's (second Thursday each month is Bring Your Dog to the Bar Night!). Anderson Japanese Gardens - a 12-acre slice of the Orient in the Midwest - and the indoor CherryVale Mall are popular for two-legged visitors... but the doors are closed to four-legged friends. Rockford home dog boarding and pet sitting services are a click away at DogVacay.com.
