Hello! My name is Matt and I've been taking care of dogs for as long as I can remember! I've always been the first to volunteer to board friends’ and families dogs when they are away and even spent some time volunteering at PAWS, in Chicago, when I lived there. I believe dogs truly are a humans best friend and will be more than thrilled to walk your furry friend whenever you need! I can't wait to start working with you and your dog!
“Experienced owner of crazy & lovable pups!”
Hello, my name is Maria! I have a soft heart for dogs. I had a couple family dogs growing up. Now, I have two of my own pups- a golden retriever and a husky malamute! I have enjoyed training my dogs. They know many commands and walk well because of it. I’m certain I’d be a suitable walker or caregiver for your pup as well!

Hi everyone! My name is Kyle and I own two shelties (13 and 15 years old) now that they are getting older, they can’t take long walks like they used to. I love being outside and being active. What better way to enjoy the outdoors than with a dog?! I’ve spent my life with dogs and understand the difficulties of providing consistent exercise for our loving pups. This app is a win/win! I look forward to helping you keep your dogs happy and healthy!
“My spirit animal is a golden retriever :)”
Hi!!! I am currently on summer break from college at Washington University in St. Louis studying Environtmental Policy! I pride myself in being happy-go-lucky while also maintaining responsibility. I will have an unpaid internship this semester (and will be away from my doggy for a long time) so this opportunity would be perfect! I would LOVE to be able to spend time caring for your dog!!!

Hi my name is Kim, I was lucky enough to have parents who loved animals, so my whole life I've had a love for dogs. I have adopted everyone of my dogs from shelters & have donated when I can. I've boarded friends & family dogs in the past while they were on vacation, or during emergencies. I had to break up dog fights in the past with either a blanket, water, or picking up their two back legs. Thankfully I've been able to stop it quickly. I've also been there twice, when my own dog had her litters. I treat them as if they were children, always putting their needs first. I'm looking forward for the rest of my life being blessed with animals.
Welcome to Michigan City, Indiana, where pups and their
humans can enjoy a range of spectacular nature walks and plenty of good food.
Michigan City is in La Porte County, approximately 50 miles east of Chicago.
These guys love their dogs and have an animal hospital in town, as well as two
vet clinics, so help is never far away.
The Friendship Botanic Gardens in Pottawottamie Park is a must-see when in Michigan City. This place prides itself on being dog-friendly and is very welcoming to four-legged friends of all shapes and sizes. Take your pooch for a walk through the gardens or along one of the forest trails in the valley of Trail Creek, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy your time out in nature together. Keep your pup leashed through this area, and remember to clean up after him.
Nearby, Krueger Memorial Park also has trails for you to explore, as well as picnic areas, restrooms and drinking water available. Winding Creek Cove Park also has a short dog-friendly trail and is close to the town centre. As with many public parks, you need to keep your pup leashed in both of these places, but he will love being out walking through the trees with you.
In downtown Michigan City, check out Panini Panini for a pup-friendly place to eat. This European-style bistro has ample outdoor seating that welcomes pooches to sit by their owner’s side. Panini Panini specialises in sandwiches, but they far from boring with names like Croque Madame, Reuben, or the Crab Cake BLT. Breakfast is also available, as is a selection of desserts if you are after a sweet treat.
Whatever you choose to do, you will have a lovely time in Michigan City with your best bud by your side!
you are looking for a great place to eat with your pooch in tow, head to North
End in Michigan City. Overboard at the Marina, near the lighthouse, has pup-friendly seating outside overlooking the lake. This casual restaurant
serves American-style fare, including burgers and a selection of seafood.
Bridges Waterside Grille has pup-proof tables out on the decking and serves a
selection of seafood, sandwiches, salads and delicious drinks. For something a
little heartier, head to Ryan’s Irish Pub and take a seat outside with your dog
for a bowl of chilli, some warming soup, pork chops or a burger.
At the south end of Michigan City is the
112-acre Creek Ridge County Park, complete with a three-acre puppy playground! The Bark Park at Creek Ridge County Park is a great
place for Fido to run off some energy and meet new friends, while you relax on
the grass or at one of the picnic tables. There is fresh water available here, but bring a drinking bowl for your buddy, as he is sure to work up a thirst! When
he is ready for a slower pace, you can take him on-lead along one of the
creekside trails and boardwalks to cap off your visit.
Ruby Woods is 35-acres of woodland in the town of Michigan City. Here you will find a series of trails that welcome
pups on-lead, as well as picnic areas, a playground and plenty of grassed areas
for all-family fun. There are toilet facilities as well as drinking fountains
at Ruby Woods. Bring a drinking bowl for your dog, as well as some clean up
bags. If you are hungry after your visit to the woods, stop by Carlson’s
Drive-In for a hot dog, burger, sandwich, salad, or a refreshing drink to
finish off the day. Your pup is welcome to sit by your side at one of the outside
great little nature trail winds around the Barker Woods Nature Preserve. There is the choice of two loops, one at 0.24 miles
and the other 0.54 miles, so you can choose a short stroll through the trees,
or do a few laps to really get those legs (and paws!) working. The Nature
Preserve is 30 acres in total and is home to some rare old-growth forest.
Marvel at the majestic white pines, red and white oaks, sugar and red maples, witch hazel,
American beech and black gum trees. Your pup
will love this walk with you, but he will need to stay on the lead. Make
sure you take your clean up bags.
In the neighbouring town of La Port, nature-lovers will rejoice at finding Ambler Flatwoods Nature Reserve, named after the expanse of boreal flatwoods in the area. The total reserve covers an impressive 310 acres and is a favourite spot for locals and visitors keen on a little hike. With pup on a lead, you can walk the varying nature trails, from the main Louise Landau Nature Trail at 1.3 miles long, to some of the loops at around half a mile each. The forest is rich in diverse plant life and protects many endangered species, so stay on the designated path and always take any rubbish with you.
