I'm Julia, and I love dogs! I'd love to take your pup for a quick walk around the neighborhood to burn off some energy or spend time with them while you're away for a sitting or boarding! I treat every dog as if they were my own, since as a student, I'm not in a place to have my own to care for right now.

Dog Walking in East Lansing

East Lansing is a midsize city that stretches across both Ingham and Clinton Counties. It’s well known for being the home of Michigan State University. Resident dogs not only love the academic atmosphere of their town, they also enjoy the nearly two dozen parks. With five veterinary clinics, they also know this city takes canine health seriously.

The Northern Tier Trail is an East Lansing favorite. This 4.8 mile trail connects eight of the city’s parks and recreational facilities. It’s a pup-ular spot for cycling, roller blading, jogging, and, of course, dog walking. Your pooch can trot along while enjoying views of trees, wetlands, wildflowers, and wildlife. Follow the interpretive trails and unpaved nature trails for some added adventure. Benches are located along the path, so take a break if your pup’s paws get tired.

If East Lansing is just a stop on your itinerary, make a reservation at one of the pet friendly hotels in town. For a nominal fee, TownPlace Suites by Marriott opens its doors to furry guests. Your pal can drift off to dreamland in a residential style room. Residence Inn is another option. This hotel allows dogs of any size for an additional fee. 

With such pawsome options, it’s no wonder pups love visiting East Lansing!

Is your dog bursting with energy? Take her over to the Northern Tail Dog Park and let her run wild. With over two acres of fenced in fields, this park will not disappoint. Your pup can dash around in a game of chase, or just sniff the perimeter on her own. Mature trees provide relief from the sun, and there are clean up stations located throughout the park. When she’s finished playing, clip on her leash and follow the paved trail over to Abbott Road Park. A nice jaunt around this wooded area will be a great cool down for your furry BFF.

This is one of the few wildlife parks in the city, so be prepared to get a healthy dose of nature when you visit. Trails and walkways wander in and around open fields and wooded low lands. Your pooch will love walking through a variety of shrubs and mature trees. If his ears perk up, chances are he’s spotted one of the birds that call this place home. You can also access the Northern Tier Trail from this park, so if your pup is still rearing to go, you can add some miles to your walk.
