Tails on the Trails: Pet Expo

Tails on the Trails is a celebration of the bond between humans and their canine companions. From the moment you enter the Arboretum’s gates, dog-friendly vendors line the event’s on-site pet expo, offering everything from gourmet treats and stylish bandanas to informative consultations with pet care providers and experts.

As we have done over many years, Floofins & Co. will be hosting a booth at the 2024 event. This year, we’ve partnered with GreenLine Pet Supply and Treats By William. In addition to mingling with the local community and catching up with friends and clients, we will be giving away logo poop bags and custom dog treats. Beyond promoting our exceptional services, we’ll be sharing our passion for GreenLine’s landfill biodegradable poop bags, and Treats by William’s very special treats – created by an advocate for Autism and made with natural ingredients for cats and dogs.

Tails on the Trails: Adoption Event

In addition to the event’s dog-oriented shopping experience, aimed at spotlighting local businesses and organizations, attendees have the opportunity to adopt dogs and learn about volunteering at local animal shelters. How fun is that?! Following are just a few of the local organizations that will be represented during 2024’s Tails on the Trails:

As Good as Gold – Golden Retriever Rescue of Illinois

Once you’ve stopped by to say hello to the vendors and grabbed up your dog’s custom Floofins & Co. treat and poop bags, it’s time to explore.

The Morton Arboretum boasts 16+ miles of scenic trails, perfect for a relaxing stroll or an invigorating hike with your crew. As you meander along the paths, take a moment to appreciate the breathtaking beauty of the Arboretum’s diverse flora and local fauna. Spring will be bursting with color – and scents – that your dog can enjoy from the trails.
