Hi! My name is Juliann and I love dogs! I grew up having a Weimaraner named Maxy, and after she crossed the rainbow bridge, we got another Weim puppy named Cleo. She left us in 2014. I still miss them both and am always looking for opportunities to spend time with dogs as I cannot own my own at the moment. Aside from growing up with dogs, my experience includes spending the last 2 years volunteering at my local animal shelter where I walked, bathed, and socialized dogs on a weekly basis. And then there's all the times I've walked and dog sat for friends and neighbors..always a joy :)

Hi, my name is Jordan. First of all, I love dogs! I have been walking dogs on a regular basis since 2009. This includes walking my neighbor's dogs. I also acted as a long term dog sitter for an elderly woman who had to move into a home. I literally moved in and took care of her dog and her home full time! They had to sell the home and asked me to adopt the dog (Barkis) which I was thrilled to do and we are best buddies :)

“High quality care begins with trust”

Quality care begins with trust and I am committed to maintaining that trust through out the care of your pup. I was born to take care of dogs and have been lucky to play many different roles in their lives over the past 13 years. I worked at a dog daycare, boarding and grooming facility where I took part in every position there. I have also trained and fostered. My life would be empty without my dogs and there is always room for more in my heart. I can't wait to meet you and yours.

Dog Boarding in Birmingham

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!
