Editor’s Choice Golden Dog Adventure Company is there for your furry friends when you can’t be home.

Walk a dynamic dog
Dog walkers are a special breed. We get attached to our canine buddies, but a leash takes “attachment” to a whole new level and limits where you can hang out. The influx of ‘pandemic puppies’ that got us through Covid isolation is now getting us out of the house more, but where to? Golden Dog Adventure Company, originally a professional dog walking business in Barrington, wants to address the need for safer and more inclusive spaces for dogs (and their loved ones) to share their experiences. Golden Dog currently offers its members a delicious variety of resources, rides, socials, and even a “sensory scavenger hunt” and they plan to expand statewide.
