Hello! My name is Alexandra. I am based out of Ann Arbor, MI. I love spending time with animals and I also love spending time outside, which made Wag! feel like the perfect match for me. I hope to meet a lot of fun dogs, of all ages, to spend time with and help their owners with their busy schedules. I am a working undergraduate student. I have my own transportation and I am looking to build long term clientele as I will be located in the Ann Arbor area for a few more years.

Dog Walking in Chelsea

Having just changed their municipal status from a village to a city in 2004, Chelsea still has the charm of a small historic town. That being said, it has everything you and your dog needs. With Lane Animal Hospital in the north end of town, and Chelsea Animal Hospital located in the south, you’re never too far away from excellent care for your pup.


Chelsea has just opened its first ever dog park, aptly named the Chelsea Dog Park! It’s got everybody in the neighborhood barking. It’s located on the Letts Creek Linear Park Trail, just north of the City Treatment Facility, and offers 1.1 acres of off-leash freedom. You can register your dog to use the park from the city website. There are tons of accessible nature areas nearby as well if you and your dog are itching to get into the wilderness.


The Waterloo State Recreation Area is the third-largest park in Michigan, and offers 21,000 acres of forest and lakes to explore. This park is sure to give you and your doggo the nature fix you need.


Why not rest your tired paws and stay a while? Chelsea has two pet friendly hotels to choose from, the Holiday Inn Express and Comfort Inn Chelsea. Catch a bite to eat at The Raven's Club, which welcomes your dog on their outdoor patio. Residents of this quaint town clearly love dogs, and your fur family will be sure to feel right at home.

The Lanewood neighborhood in Chelsea is home to two lovely parks that are pleasing to locals and their dogs. Why not switch up your morning routine with Fido and take a stroll through them? Timber Town Park is appropriately named after its huge 12,000 foot wooden play structure, and features a large pavilion. Your pup will love the feel of the large mowed grass area between his toes. Just above Timber Town Park along Letts River is the Veterans Memorial Park. This park is quite small and dedicated to those who have served in armed forces. None of these areas are dedicated dog areas, so your dog will need to stay leashed, and please pick up after him.

Chelsea’s City Center is not short on greenery. While taking a walk downtown, you can enjoy beautiful views of Pierce Lake and the Pierce Lake Golf Course. Of course, you and your doggo won’t want to miss out on Pierce Park. Lovingly called “the park with the big rock” by locals, what makes this park unique is the large rock that anyone can paint on. Leashed dogs are welcome as long as you pick up after them. So put some paw prints on the big rock and get creative! When you and your pup are tuckered out and need a boost, head over to Biggby Coffee. With four outdoor pet-friendly tables, this is the place to go! They even offer Pup Cups so your dog can join in on the fun.

When you need to get into the woods with your wild dog, head to the Lyndon Center neighborhood in the the Southwest end of Chelsea. This peaceful area of Chelsea is mostly taken up by nature preserves. Park Lyndon County Park features two-miles of nature trails that wind through hilly forests, prairies and wetlands. There are vault toilets available for humans, but please bring water, keep your pooch leashed, and pick up after him. If you want to stay a while, why not kick back at the Green Lake Rustic Campgrounds? The area boasts four campgrounds, multiple beaches, and 47 miles of hiking trails. Leashed dogs are welcome throughout the park and on non-designated bathing beach areas.

You can enjoy watching your pup romp around in the natural tall grass areas, make use of the walking trails, or take a splash in the man-made dog pond. There is drinking water available to humans and canines, as well as poop bags. Bring along some good toys and treats for your Good Dog!
