South Loop

The South Loop is one of Chicago’s up-and-coming neighborhoods. There are great places to live with a dog in Chicago’s South Loop. Most of the area south of Congress Parkway between Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, excepting Chinatown, is referred to as the South Loop.

There are plenty of things to do in the South Loop with your dog.

Pet Friendly Places To Eat

Sometimes it’s just nice to take your fur baby with you. Not every place you wander into loves dogs as much as we do, but here’s a few places you and the pooch can peacefully dine and enjoy sharing some time together. Not to mention, this is great for dog training, because socialization skills are really important for a well behaved dog.

Even though DoGoneFun provides excellent Dog Day Care services, we encourage you to spend some time with other dogs and their humans at one of the South Loop’s dog parks. The South Loop loves off-the leash living so much, they have a whole organization for it; South Loop Dog Park Action Cooperative.

In case you are new or didn’t know, the owner or other responsible person bringing any dog into a dog-friendly area must have a permit and tag issued by a participating Veterinarian for each dog.

Vet Services in the South Loop

Just like the two-legged creatures, maybe even more so, the four-legged ones need to regularly see the doctor. They can’t communicate what’s wrong with them so it’s good to get them an annual checkup and updated shots.
