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 :)

Dog Boarding in Detroit

As the city and its dog population continues to grow and thrive, Detroit is now home to a plethora of dog-friendly activities and events to keep your pooch happy and stimulated year-round! Whether you want to liven up your dog’s social life, pamper them to perfection, or provide exercise on scenic trails, Detroit has something for every doggo and their loyal humans!


The hub of this dog-centered city is the Michigan Humane Society, providing an array of important services to ensure the canines and other companion animals of Detroit are well cared for. The society's extensive efforts are fueled by their dedication to rescue, provide care, and find loving homes for dogs in need statewide. As the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state, the Michigan Humane Society is a leader in promoting the humane treatment of animals. Leading the way with compassion, the society fosters community engagement through educational tours and presentations, cruelty investigation, emergency response, low-cost vaccination clinics, animal welfare lobbying, pet adoptions, and health and behavior resources and support. Additionally, the Michigan Humane Society hosts several events throughout the year to get animal owners and lovers involved, and to bolster support for their invaluable services.


The Detroit Dog Rescue is another amazing and compassionate charity dedicating their efforts to strive for every dog in the city to be safe, loved, and cared for. This rescue is active in community outreach, hosting a number of events offering vaccinations, education, welfare checks, and assistance. As the city's first no-kill shelter, founded in February 2011, they aim to raise awareness of the city's large homeless and stray dog population and work to find these animals forever homes. These organizations are among several other shelters and charities in the city striving to ensure that all of Detroit's furry friends receive the best possible care to live the best possible lives!
