Description

Need a place away from other dogs for yours to run and play? Look, we get it, everyone loves dogs, but sometimes dogs just aren’t dog people! Lol That’s why we’ve decided to rent out our Big Back Yard Park for your pupper’s use! With over 1 acre of land, with the back half being a natural wooded area shared with WaterShed Nature Preserve, you’ll enjoy the calm serenity of the nature preserve while only being a block away from downtown! Tons of street parking! Park is outside of the fenced area only! 😊 the fenced in area is our personal backyard and as much as we’d love to, for the safety of everyone, the fenced area is off limits. The available park is a vast open space with a natural wood line across the back. Off-leash is welcome at owners discretion! We get a lot of wildlife back here, such as skunks, woodchucks, fox, deer, etc! We do not have any other amenities than what is listed, so please remember water, poo bags, etc. and please be kind and don’t litter. ❤️ Dogs big and small are welcome!

Hazards

Uneven ground, natural plants, open woods - may be hazard of falling limbs or trees, creek is sometimes stagnant so unsafe for dogs to drink due to risk of Algeas.

    K9 Corner - Private Dog Run in Webster Groves

    This is a privately owned empty residential lot. Property is a “pie shape” approximately 2,000 sqft. Fenced section is approximately 130’L with one end at 30’W and the other end at 6’. Entrance is at the corner of Atalanta Avenue and Glen Road. Please park along the long side of the fence on Glen Road. The city does not allow signs (see photos for more clarification). This is a self regulated private dog park / dog run similar to a regular dog park. There is not water on site however a bowl will be left on site (typically inside the toy box to keep them clean). A pet waste station is available along with a trash receptacle and some dog toys. Please remember to clean up after your dogs, put away toys, and throw away trash. Pesticide free - consider bringing bug spray. To keep moles away, mole spikes that vibrate in the ground are in use and you can hear a buzzing noise. The sand pit / tire area is for digging - please try to keep all digging isolated to the designated area only and try to fill in any holes dug by your dog outside of the pit area. Sun sail is up during spring/summer months only - that’s what the poles are for - no climbing please. **This spot is not a business to make money for profit. All proceeds are considered donation for upkeep of the dog run, lawn maintenance, dog toys, etc. If you have questions/comments/concerns, please text 314-384-2279.**

    Born To Run Dog Park and Hiking Trails, 10 Acres, Litchfield, IL

    Ten acres of scenic, secluded, fully fenced pasture and woods with full access to all hiking trails and half acre pond. Be prepared for a good workout with your dog as you explore all the ins and outs of this unique property. One tip we can give you is If you see a path leading somewhere, take it, you never know what you may find at the end of it. Also try to go up top on the hilly property in the beginning of your hike and work your way down to the lower parts as you do the hike. You can see the property and surrounding area better at the higher elevations and get a better feel on how the property is set up. We walk or jog at least five laps of the entire property with our seven australian shepherds every day so we are used to all the challenges the property presents but it will be interesting to see how normal people and dogs handle everything. If you or your dog are faint of heart or not in proper physical condition, we recommend that you reconsider doing the property. You may need more than one hour to go over the whole thing with your dog so bring a snack with you and enjoy it while sitting at the picnic table by the pond. All we ask is that you maintain the cleanliness of the property as it should be spotless with regard to animal waste and trash except for an occasional present from our thoroughbred horse. Also be safe in all that you and your dog do, navigating the property in its entirety can be a bit tricky at times, take proper precautions with tick preventatives for you and your dog, but most of all have some fun with your dog. Our private dog park and hiking trails are patterned after the famous Allerton Park open meadows and hiking trails in Monticello, IL, https://www.alltrails.com/parks/us/illinois/robert-allerton-park/photos, which we must have run hundreds if not thousands of miles on while living and training there for marathons with our three aussies at the time. When we moved to Litchfield ten years ago, we wanted to keep experiencing those Allerton Park nature trails in our own backyard, we even have a butterfly alley at a certain time during the summer just like the famous one at Allerton Park and now we want to share all that with the people of Illinois and Missouri who may not get the chance to do that with their dog off leash the way public parks and trails are set up now. So enjoy and know that with our trusty 33 hp Kubota tractor, we put up every gate, fence post and inch of horse fencing on the property that you see and it is designed to keep all our animals in including very active dogs and livestock. There was nothing here when we first moved in except a few stretches of old rusty fencing which you may still see in some areas covered over by our new fencing. We wanted to keep it there as a reminder of what this property used to be and what we had to do to turn it in to what it is now. One more thing, if you have young puppies or rescue dogs that have never experienced being released off leash in an open area like this, bring them and try it, they will have a great time and they will learn so much and gain confidence in what they are capable of doing physically and mentally. Let them go off leash and just follow them around as they explore the property on their terms. You will see a side of them you never knew they had. A new feature we just added for the winter season is called Winter Sports Bonanza, more information on it can be found here and in the Extras section of this web site. Enjoy your favorite winter sport while your dogs try to keep up with you instead of the other way around. You have a choice of three winter activities to participate in. If you think of any more, let us know. 1. Ice skating on a frozen half acre pond and your dogs can go on it too if they are brave enough. Put your skates on at the picnic table right by the pond. 2. Cross country skiing on a hilly 10 acre property, make sure to walk the property beforehand to see exactly where you want to ski since snow amounts on the ground can vary. 3. Sleigh riding on some of the many hills on the property, not sure how fast you can go on them, have never tried it myself but hook up your dogs to a sled and have them pull you around the 10 acre property if there is enough snow on the ground to do it. All this depends on the weather of course and if you want to do one of these three activities during your visit, please let us know ahead of time and we will let you know right before your visit if the property is in the proper condition to do it in. These winter activities deserve special attention to safety so make sure you are in excellent physical condition and you know what your are doing if you attempt one or more of these activities. This is probably not the place to try cross country skiing, dog sledding or ice skating for the first time.
