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 :)

Dog Walking in Ferndale

Ferndale, Michigan is a city that stems from the automotive industry rather than the railroad. In days past, this area was a boomtown that saw rapid expansion thanks to the thriving automotive industry. Today, Ferndale has a few bustling commercial areas and quiet residential quarters, as well as several places where you can come and play with your pup and your kids. It is a bedroom community for Detroit, which means big-city amenities are just a short drive away. You'll find three vet clinics in town to keep your pup tip-top.

Martin Road Park is one of the largest parks in the area. It has a sledding hill, a decent sized playground, and a walking trail. Restrooms and water fountains are available. Dogs aren't allowed inside the restrooms, but you can fill up their water dish here. You will need a leash to play, but your dog will enjoy a long walk in this quiet park.

If you want a cozy place to eat, then you should check out M-Brew. They offer several types of craft beer. The locals recommend the Piggy-Q pizza. This cozy spot is housed in an authentic and historic cabin where your dog is just as welcome as you are.

Fido will go mutts for everything Ferndale has to offer!
