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.

Hi, I'm Melissa! I'm currently an NYC college student looking forward to giving lots of love and attention to your dog! I became a vegetarian when I was twelve years old because of the animal abuse I saw online. I have grown up with 3 cats and my grandmothers 6 dogs, so I am an all around animal lover! I spent my time in middle school volunteering at animal shelters and donating portions of my pay checks in high school to these shelters! I love animals and I will make yours feel nothing but loved. I look forward to meeting with your furry friend soon!

Hi! I'm a journalist, a musician, and a friend of all dogs! I've had the pleasure of owning pups my whole life and have worked at doggy daycares and as a dog walker for years. My joy of providing your canine companion with long strolls, educational games, and occasional treats is likely to be equal to that of your canine companion.

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 :)

“High quality care begins with trust”

Quality care begins with trust and I am committed to maintaining that trust through out the care of your pup. I was born to take care of dogs and have been lucky to play many different roles in their lives over the past 13 years. I worked at a dog daycare, boarding and grooming facility where I took part in every position there. I have also trained and fostered. My life would be empty without my dogs and there is always room for more in my heart. I can't wait to meet you and yours.

Hi! I recently relocated to Ann Arbor from Chicago and I truly miss my puppers from home. While I've never owned a dog myself, I grew up with two of them, and I love everything about dogs. I decided to sign up for wag because I thought it would be an awesome way to get some puppy love and take care of pups with busy owners.

Dog Walking in Canton

Like many cities in the state of Michigan and other states, there are a lot of animals present in the city of Canton. The AVMA claims at least 50% of the households in the average American city have chosen to enrich their home with a pet. There are approximately 20,254 dogs and 22,127 cats being held as companion animals in Canton.

The Heritage Park is the place for locals to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city. The regional park has both hiking trails as bicycle paths that cross through the entire park. Heritage Park offers fun for the entire family including the canine members. There are playgrounds, baseball fields, ponds, fountains and more.

The Heritage Park is also the location of the Canton Dog Park, the only area in the city where dogs are allowed and even recommended by the locals to be freed from their fetters. The dog park is a total of 6 acres in size and fully enclosed making it a perfectly safe environment for dogs to play. Furthermore, as the park is sectioned off into two parts, small breeds can play with similar sized friends.

If you are visiting the West Detroit area and are accompanied by your pets, Canton has several hotels and motels where you can stay with one or two pets.
