Quality care begins with trust and I am committed to maintaining that trust through out the care of your pup.

Dog Walking in Brighton

Brighton is a suburb of Detroit located in the southeast part of Livingston County. If you decide to visit or you're just passing through and need a place to stay with your pup by your side, check the Courtyard Brighton. Unfortunately, only small dogs are allowed at this hotel. You can also check out the Brighton Airbnb Rentals, but keep in mind that pet policies are different for each accommodation.

There are a lot of dog-friendly restaurants and cafes in Brighton, so if you want to chow down with your hound, you're in the right place! Just a few of Brighton's many dog-friendly eateries include Lu and Carl's, TGI Fridays, The Coffee Beanery, Jameson's Irish Pub and Grill, Salsarita's Fresh Cantina and many, many more!

You won't need to worry about your pup's health here. You'll find four animal hospitals in Brighton, which means your pup will be in good hands in case of emergency.

While you’re here, you should check out the Island Lake Recreation Area, which is completely dog-friendly as long as you keep your beloved pet on-leash at all times. You can also visit the Huron Meadows Metropark, which is a 1,576-acre park along the Huron River.

No matter what kind of adventure you're craving, Brighton has plenty of op-paw-tunities for dog-friendly fun!

If you are looking for a park where you can take the whole family for a nice day in nature, you might want to check out Olson Park in Ann Arbor. The park is approximately 18 miles away from Brighton and has a furrific dog park on-site where your pooch can play! The fenced dog park is a little on the smaller side, though. If you have a hyperactive doggo that needs more exercise, you should check out the trails outside of the fenced area. Keep in mind that you have to keep your dog on their leash on the trails. Make sure you bring water and waste bags with you.
