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! 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.

Dog Walking in Dearborn Heights

Dog-friendly Dearborn Heights is part of the Detroit Metropolitan Area, located just 18 miles from the Motor City. It is considered a bedroom community for commuters to Detroit, and for students and educators at the University of Michigan at Dearborn. Dearborn Heights requires that dogs be leashed on any public property, including the more than 8 parks within the city limits, like the Nolar Bend Recreation Area in Hines Park.

Hines Park is a string of park segments, stretching over 20 miles and spanning several cities, including Dearborn Heights. A 15-mile dog-friendly, multi-use trail travels uninterrupted through all the segments. The segment in Dearborn Heights is called Nolar Bend, and it features 2 baseball/softball fields along with green expanses dotted with shade trees and a swath of woodlands separating the diamonds. The Middle Rouge River flows through the southern portion of Nolar Bend. In addition to the walking trail, there is a paved bike path along one side of Hines Drive. Whether you’re here to watch your favorite team play, or to get some exercise for yourself and Fido, this is an ideal spot for both. Woof-derful!

If your hunger pangs get the best of you, be sure to head over to Panera Bread for a snack or a whole meal. Their outdoor tables are perfect for sharing your meal with your fur-buddy.

Should your pal need medical attention while in Dearborn Heights, there are five qualified veterinarians and animal hospitals in the area just waiting to help get him wagging again.

The City Center in Dearborn Heights is home to the Lyle C. Van Houten Park, also known as the Dearborn Heights Municipal Park. This dog-friendly, family-oriented green space is a great place to take your furry bestie and the rest of the kids for a few hours of play in the outdoors. Fido must be on leash, but that won’t keep him from having fun, rolling around in the grass, or just chillin’ out on a blanket with you. The park features multiple playground areas, as well as sheltered dining areas complete with tables and chairs. Bring a picnic lunch and hang out in the shade or catch some rays on the lawn. This is a fun place within the city, for everyone!

A portion of the dog-friendly Lower Rouge Parkway, with its 5 popular hiking trails, resides in this neighborhood of Dearborn Heights. The trails feature scenic views of the area, including wetlands and a waterfall behind the Henry Ford Estate. The Waterfall Loop Trail meanders along the Rouge River and affords sightings of wildlife as well. The trails are open year-round, and in the winter offer a unique experience of snow-muffled city noise and frozen swampland. There is very little up- or down-grading on the paved trail, so you can have a nice, easy amble suitable for kids, too. Come out and explore all 5 trails with a leashed Fido in tow!

This neighborhood is home to the Parkland Community Park, a multi-use green space with sports fields and a playground for the human members of the family, plus lots of grassy lawn, paved walking paths and picnic shelters complete with grills and tables. Your furry best friend is welcome here, on leash, and would love to hang out with you while the family grills up some lunch or dinner, and plays frisbee and tag on the grass. Put down a blanket and relax in the sun for a bit, Fido at your side. Or amble along the paths at an easy pace with your bestie in tow. Sounds paw-tastic doesn’t it?

This neighborhood is home to the Helms Haven Recreation Area, another segment of the 20-mile long Hines Park, southeast of Nolar Bend. It features a small picnic shelter, some playing fields, a playground and uncovered picnic areas. But best of all, at least in Fido’s mind, are the paved trails and large green park areas made for romping and lolling.  Helms Haven is a continuation of the Hines Park Trail which is popular with walkers, joggers, bicyclists and in-line skaters. Your pup would love to join you, on leash, as you explore this southern end of the park. No need to bring water, as you can find some, along with a restroom, at this recreation area.

Dearborn is Dearborn Heights’s next-door neighbor, and while there may not be many dog-friendly restaurants in the Heights, Dearborn has its share. In this neighborhood, there are 3, all offering a place at an outdoor table for your furry bestie. The Potbelly Sandwich Shop is the home of the deli nosh in Dearborn, featuring creative sandwiches, soups and salads, all served up in the New York deli style. Biggby Coffee offers pup cups to doggy-dates while their humans sip their coffee and perhaps nibble on a cookie or bagel. Ordering is done inside, so Fido will need to stay tied up outside while you go in to order your treats. A unique dining experience awaits at bd’s Mongolian Grill, where you and your fur pup can chow down on unlimited soup and salad alongside made-to-order stir fry with your choice of meats and veggies. Bone appetit!
