“Pets are family!”

Growing up with dogs my entire life, it was clear I had a passion from a very young age. Throughout the years, I have volunteered at multiple shelters, worked at quite a few doggie daycares/boarding facilities, a veterinary office, and even went to school to become a Certified Veterinary Assistant! I can't ever imagine a life or a job that doesn't involve dogs. After all, if you LOVE what you do, you don't work a day in your life!!

“loving care while you're away!”

I’ve been dog walking for several years now, and have one year of experience at a shelter both as an animal care attendant and as a medical technician. I’ve dealt with diverse personalities in animals, and I’m able to adapt quickly to each individual animal’s quirks. I’m patient and focused on your furry friend’s well-being… if they’re with me, they will remain occupied and have access to plenty of enrichment.

Dog Walking in Carleton

While Carleton, Michigan may primarily be an agricultural community, there are restaurants and businesses in town, and it's a quaint, quiet place to live and raise a family. Carleton is a village in Monroe County with a population of more than 2,300 people, and it's just a short drive from Detroit and other big cities in Michigan. If you live in Carleton and you're a dog owner, you and your pet will love how much space there is to run around while you explore the streets and the agricultural areas of the village. Although Carleton is just a small village, it has its own veterinary clinic right in town, and there are several others just a short drive from Carleton.

There's a superb park in Carleton known as Unity Park, which is part of Ash Township. This large park has a fishing pond, playgrounds, a walking trail, sports fields, picnic tables, and more. This 27-acre park doesn't have a designated off-leash area, but their website states pets are welcome as long as owners clean up after them. This popular spot in town is upgraded consistently, and new features are often added, making it an even better place to spend time with your dog in Carleton.
