    “I’ll love on your pets so you don’t have to worry!”

    I’m passionate about animals, and as a pet owner myself (both a dog and a cat) I will provide the experience I would want my babies to have. I volunteer at an animal sanctuary weekly. I try to pay close attention to the cues animals are giving me and respond appropriately so that they feel comfortable. I would love to walk your dog while you’re at work or away so that you’re less worried!

    My human clients can be assured that any special requests will be catered to during my walk, stay, or visit. I always prefer to keep in contact with my human clients, though I do also understand conflicting schedules may not permit this. I can send text with updates. Clients can expect to receive photos and/or videos with every visit. Safety comes before anything else. At the end of our scheduled time, I will be sure to make sure the dog is safe, secured, and that the human is updated.

    “Who let the dogs out? 😇”

    21 years old. I have been in the Doggy Daycare business for 5+ years, and a certified Groomer. I have 2 Great Danes of my own and recently lost my St.Bernard. I love animals more than life, and don't mind doing the dirty work that comes along with it. Even though I have two 100+ pound dogs of my own, am experienced with all sizes, breeds, temperament and medical needs.

    My name is Molly and I am extremely passionate about dogs. I am dedicated to studying their behavior, in an effort to better understand what they are communicating and in return, communicate back with them in a way that they will understand. I currently have a 13 year old shih tzu, and a 4 year old Aussie.

    I love dogs and I love walking. Best of both worlds right here. I vibe well with energetic and goofy pups and I can calm nervous and shy ones. I've owned breeds from rat terriers to malinois through out my life so I'm very comfortable around any breed. If your dog doesn't like me I'll give you free walks lol (jk) Can't wait to meet your pups!

    Hello everyone! My name is Elizabeth and I am a current forth year medical student. I have been a dog lover since I had my very own Sandy, a yellow lab, when I was younger! I have a more flexible schedule since most doctors I work with are not stuck to normal business hours. I have my own car for transportation, and I am also fully vaccinated against Covid-19. I know first hand what a stressful and trying year this has been. Please let me help you and your dog in any way I can!

    If your pooch is ready for some fresh air and exercise, take her over to the Clinton River Trail. This 15 mile trail extends to a few of the surrounding cities. The 2.1 mile portion that cuts through Auburn Hills is ideal for walking or jogging. Your pal can strut her stuff down the recycled asphalt trail. While you’re in the area, drop by Sweets for an afternoon refreshment. Family owned and operated, this bakery serves delicious treats as well as soups, sandwiches and coffee. Your four legged companion can sit with you at one of the outside tables.

    Nothing beats a walk in the woods, so grab your pooch and head over to the Hawk Woods Nature Center. This 80 acre patch of nature is a great place to escape the noise of the city. Your pup can breathe in some fresh air as you make your way around the interpretive trail system. Follow the Marsh Boardwalk Trail to get an up close look at the marshland ecosystem. A small deck with benches and picnic tables is the perfect spot to stop and soak in the surroundings. Pond Trail takes you past Hawk Woods Pond, while the Crawford Cut runs near a forest research site. Your furry friend will have a doggone great time!

    This neighborhood has a couple pupperific parks. Leash up your pup and start your excursion at Riverside Park. Sitting right on the banks of the Clinton River, this park features a canoe launch, playground, and picnic facilities. But, your four legged pal may be more interested in the path that runs alongside the river. For a change of scenery, pop over to River Woods Park, another beautiful riverfront park. Not only does this park have sports courts, a playground, and open spaces, it also has a network of trails. Your pooch will love getting his exercise at this pawsome park.

    Is your pup an adventure seeker? Treat her to a day at the Bald Mountain Recreation Area. Located in Lake Orion, this recreation area is less than 10 minutes north of Auburn Hills, and spreads over 4,500 acres of rugged terrain to provide hours of exploring. This place can be enjoyed all year round with activities like boating, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and cross country skiing. With your pooch by your side, venture into the network of trails. Since they range in length and difficulty, you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your pup. Remember to bring enough water to keep your four legged hiking buddy well hydrated.

    When pups in Auburn Hills need to let loose, they head over to Orion Oaks Dog Park. This 24 acre off leash area is a dog’s dream come true. It’s located inside of Orion Oaks County Park in Lake Orion. Your pooch will have more than enough room to run free and play with his new furry friends. If he feels like going for a swim, he can paddle around Lake Sixteen, a lake just for four legged swimmers. There are a couple trails for exploring, as well as a small dog area. Drinking stations are also available, so remind your pup to take a water break every once in a while.
