“The most reliable and responsible college student”

I’ve had multiple dogs throughout my whole life. I currently have two large dogs so I know how to handle big, energetic, goofball dogs. I know how to look for body language in dogs and know when they are scared or uncomfortable or just want to play. While my parents were gone, I watched our puppy so I know how to potty train and walk puppies. I also had to watch over our old dog so I know how to administer oral medication. I go above + beyond for your dog every time and love them like my own!

Hello! My name is Michelle and I have been around animals my entire life. I grew up taking care of dogs, cats, and horses. My love for animals transpired into a career training and caring for dogs, cats, reptiles, sharks, dolphins and sea lions. Throughout the years of caring for and training these animals I have also gained invaluable experience working alongside veterinary staff. I have trained urinary collection and voluntary blood draws. I am comfortable working with senior animals who may have medical conditions and need injections or help them navigatie their environment more carefully. I believe every animal, big or small, fluffy or scaly, should be treated with the utmost respect and unconditional love. I take care of all animals like they are my own and would love to get to know your furry family. Thank you for considering me to be apart of your pets life. Sincerely, Michelle

I have loved animals all my life and always had at least one in my home growing up. I grew up in Michigan with my dog Molly, a chocolate lab, who was a very sweet and happy dog. I'm the type of person that will befriend the dog when I go to someone's home. I am patient, responsible, caring, and understand that all dogs are different. I am capable of catering to whatever their needs may be, while keeping them happy and safe. Being active is an important aspect of my life, so on top of loving dogs, this is the perfect job for me!

Dog Walking in Grand Haven

Grand Haven is a port city on the west coast of Michigan. The small city is beautiful year-round, but brings in the most tourism during the summer months thanks to its pretty beaches, parks, and the Coast Guard Festival. Grand Haven is the only city to be named Coast Guard City USA, and continues to protect the shores around the town, which allows the city to maintain their dog-friendly land, parks and fields.

Robbinson Forest is one of the best places to head to with your pup in Grand Haven. This 80-acre piece of land is filled with thick forests and winding trails, backed by open spaces and fields. Dogs are allowed to roam around off-leash on the trails and open areas, and have access to trash bins and benches along the way.

The Grand Haven State Park is the city's most popular beach, with over 43 acres of shoreline featuring sandy terrains and concrete walkways. Dogs are welcome at the park before 11 AM and after 5 PM during the summer months, and anytime during the winter while on a leash. There are picnic areas, benches, and trash bins.

Grand Haven has numerous other places for your dogs to play and exercise, including Bolt Park, Sluka Field, and Klempel Park with the option to head to 4 different animal hospitals when needed. The town continues to grow, and with it, so does its love for its four-legged residents.
