Hey! I'm Heidi, an animal lover in Oakland County. I've boarded and walked many dogs around Michigan for many years. I love the outdoors as much as your furry friend. My husband (also a certified dog handler) and I share tons of tips on encouraging healthy behaviors in dogs, and I'm excited to make the most of a walk with your buddy!

When heading to Birmingham, MI, you will find out swiftly that this is one of the most paw-some places to bring your furry friend. Located near Detroit, this city has a plentiful amount of activities for you and your pup to discover. Before looking into activities though, take a look at the closest shelter to this pup-ular city.
While there is not an actual shelter within the city limits of Birmingham, there is a shelter close by. This shelter is located in Royal Oak, MI. The Royal Oak Animal Shelter was created by the local government to help provide a safe haven for animals in dire need. The shelter itself is located at 1515 N Edgeworth, which is only about 13 minutes from Birmingham city limits. With flexible hours, this shelter is a great place to go while visiting the area. If you find that you are unable to make it to the physical shelter, you are in luck! The shelter provides you with a website where you can take a look at every adoptable animal that they have to offer! How fur-tastic is that?
If you are looking for a way to help out this wonderful shelter, they are always welcoming to helping hands. There is an application to fill out and return to the Royal Oak Police Department before you can get started. To volunteer, do keep in mind that you must be at least 18 years of age, as well as have open availability during the hours needed. This is a great way to get involved with the community and help out all of the local furry friends!
Get ready to rock your paws off! Every summer, make sure to leave space on your calendar for some of the paws-itively wonderful local concerts. Birmingham's In the Park Concert Series is well-received by the surrounding communities for numerous reasons, including the fact that your best fur-pal is more than welcome to enjoy the music with you! While attending, do keep in mind that seating is only on the grass, so you may want to bring a blanket or even some chairs to relax with. These concerts do occur weekly, so be sure to check their website for more scheduling details!
Grab your pupper and head on over to the annual Birmingham Hometown Parade, which starts at South Old Woodward and Daines and ends in Shain Park. This parade is a great place to take every member of your family to enjoy a fur-tastic day out. Celebrating the hometown heroes of Birmingham, this parade is a beautiful way to start off all of the summer activities that go on in this paw-some city. After the parade, be sure to hang out in the park for a good while so that your kids can enjoy the free activities set up for them!
While there are many activities to enjoy with Fido, keep in mind that there are also numerous eateries for you to indulge in as well. One popular destination is Cafe Via, located at 310 E Maple Road. This cafe has outdoor patio seating for you and your dog to enjoy together during the warmer months. Not only do they have a great menu for humans, but your dog can also choose from two different sizes of treat and they will also receive a complimentary bowl of ice water. Not too ruff! Check out their website for menus and pricing.
Each year in Birmingman, you will find numerous activities for you and your whole family to delight in. In this city, you can also find activities strictly for your much-loved pup. At Pet Wants Birmingham, located conveniently at 33772 Woodward Avenue, the crew throws an amazing Halloween get-together for all of pup-kind. This event features pet costume contests, raffles, refreshments, pet photos, and even face painting for your other family members! On top of that, they also give out goody bags for your kids. This highly regarded event is the perfect night out for you and your entire family, fur and all!
Like many cities, Birmingham has its very own Farmers Market. This market is run annually and has upwards of 50 vendors that attend. This outdoor market makes it easy to grab your pup for a nice day out at the shops! There may even be a nice pet shop set up somewhere for them to browse! Grab your shopping bags and your best puppy pal and get to shopping. Just keep in mind, the market is not open all year round, so you will want to check online before making a trip to Parking Lot #6, on North Old Woodward.
