““Dogs do speak, but only to those who listen””

My name is Jennifer, and my pup’s name is Brody. He is a 4 year old Shih Tzu-Schnauzer mix & my best friend! I am the mother of 4 grown children, I live & work in the Plymouth-Canton area, have incredible love & respect for all of our four legged friends.I have always had a deep love for animals. While not all pups are initially friendly and cuddly, I’ve yet to meet one that if given time and patience, was not accepting and lovable.

Hey my name is Carmine! I’m currently looking for a full time engineering job and I figured it would be great to do Wag in the meantime . My dog Millie is almost 8 years old and she’s the sweetest thing ever. She’s some a Jack Russel/Italian Greyhound Mix and while she’s one of the greatest things I’ve got going right now she doesn’t love to walk all that much. So I’d like to brighten up my days by meeting some new dogs and getting some light exercise.

My name is Carol and I grew up in a house full of dogs. There were more dogs in our house than kids, and there were 4 of us. My parents were dog trainers, and their dogs, Viszla, were trained in obedience, show and field trials. While I never participated in shows I accompanied my family to all events and assisted handling the dogs. After I was on my own I used all the techniques I learned at home with my dogs. Using positive reinforcement I was able to enjoy a pack of three dogs ranging from 6 pounds to 96 pounds. They were a well behaved group in and around the kitchen and out on a neighborhood walk. I always made sure they knew that I was in charge, and in exchange we enjoyed many happy hours together.

Ann Arbor is known as a fabulous place to visit with your family, friends, significant other, and of course, your canine companion!

After a relaxing day with your pup at the park, head over to Aut Bar for some outstanding bar food, fantastic happy hour specials, and a lovely outdoor seating area where Fido is welcome to join in on the relaxation action!

Pontiac/Dhu Varren

The Pontiac/Dhu Varren neighborhood is formed where these two Ann Arbor main roads cross. This residential area is kept natural through the placement of three amazing parks. If your pup turns up his nose at one, you have back-pups to choose from. Olson Park is the off-leash play area of your pup’s dreams. It’s a fenced dog run with plenty of room to make tracks. If your dog needs on-leash exercise, either Foxfire West Park or Foxfire North Park (two completely separate parks approximately one mile apart) can help.

Pittsfield

Contrary to the name, Pittsfield in south Ann Arbor is not the pits. This charming neighborhood hosts two parks across the street from each other. The first is Swift Run Dog Park. A roomy 10 acre park with separate runs for large and small dogs. If your dog isn’t the “swift run” type, you can either amble through Swift Run Dog Park or head across the street to Southeast Area Park. This park is complete with a playground for human children, and provides plenty of benches and items of interest for leashed dogs to explore at their leisure.

Kerrytown

Kerrytown is the home of Broadway Park. Broadway is a multi-use park, but is mainly left natural. When bringing your pup to this park, be prepared to rough it. Bringinging your own bowl and water is essential. The park is large and remote, but is not fenced, so skittish dogs or those who are still skeptical that you really mean “Come!” when you call them would do better on a leash. Weekdays are quieter than weekends, when the park is typically populated by students at the nearby University of Michigan.


Old West Side

Hitting the town with your dog in tow should always be as easy as it is in Old West Side. The city’s metro center for diverse bites and shopping brings two unique experiences within blocks of each other. If you’d like a relaxing meal outside, enjoy dog-friendly Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub. You can sample local beers and enjoy pub favorites, from hot wings to burgers with your furry friend by your side. If you want to try something different, Blue Nile a few blocks away serves all-you-can-eat Ethiopian food. Fuel up after a trip to the park, as the restaurant serves water, milk, and bread to guests too short (and lacking opposable thumbs) to reach the buffet tables.

Where Platt Road meets Packard, Buhr Park reigns supreme. This residential park is a destination for the whole neighborhood, and some of the surrounding areas as well. It has the space and set up for many activities, from baseball to ice hockey, and a picnic area equipped with grills. The large park offers enough walking paths and locations to provide an interesting walk to any local pup. Do laps of the whole thing or weave your way through. Just keep your dog on leash because Buhr Park is busy year-round.
