My name is Cole and I live in Ypsilanti! I have two dogs of my own, Payten and Charlie, and we all enjoy going to the dog park together and walking through the pet store! I'd be happy to process some reasonable requests (i.e. take dogs to dog park or car ride) depending on the situation. I can't wait to meet your furry family member!

Hello, I am a 25-year-old travel nurse looking to spend some quality time with your pup! I have a love for dogs and hate to see them cooped up inside. I used to be a private dog walker for Golden retriever/mutt named "Buddy" for almost 3 years. In that time we would take frequent trips to the local dog park, where Buddy could run around, cool off in the creek, and play fetch! It was a delight to see how happy it made Buddy be outside, enjoying what he does best! I also have experience dog sitting for a Beagle named "Winston" who has special needs (being quite anxious at times) due to his unfortunate past with not so friendly owners. Lastly, I have experience sitting a Maltese named "Rookie." He is a friendly little lap dog, who requires frequent bathroom breaks and attention. I owned two dogs growing up, (golden retriever/lab mix) named "Rocky" and "Sandy", and my parents encouraged me to provide all the care for them. I learned at an early age the huge responsibility it is to have an animal and I can appreciate how much care and attention they deserve.

“Pawsitively the best fur your animal!”

I enjoy working with children and animals! I have been babysitting for 13 years. I am fun, honest, respectful, and responsible. I have two dogs and one cat. I love all types of animals. If I wasn't an elementary educator then I would be a veterinarian. Growing up I had a family dog, a Bichon Frise, who passed away at 17 years old. I had him since I was 3 1/2 years old. In summer 2010, I got my own dog. He is an Australian Shepard mix. He loves walking, playing, and being pet. He is extremely friendly and well behaved. He took training classes and passed the Canine Good Citizen Award. I sometimes take care of my neighbors dogs or friends, when they leave for vacation, work or family trips. I am looking to make money to pay back my student loans and help provide for my family of 5! I am also trying to work off some baby weight so look forward to taking many walks! Thanks!

Dog Walking in Jackson

Jackson, Michigan, is a small city with a history of affection for animals. Not only are there multiple highly rated animal hospitals and a multitude of veterinarians in Jackson. There is also plenty of fun, exciting, and unique things to do with your dog. Needless to say, your four-legged friend has something to look forward to every day.

One of the best places to make a stop at, which has been verified by the local community, for dog owners is the Cascades Falls Park. While dogs have to be on a leash at all times, the humongous Park offers 457 acres for you and your canine friend to explore. A highlight of the park are the Cascade Falls, a 64 feet tall man-made waterfall. Dogs are allowed throughout almost the entire park.

Thanks to the efforts of the Cascades Humane Society dogs in Jackson, Michigan, also have their own park. The Paw Playground is located across the office of the Humane Society and is the only off-leash park in town. While entry to the park is free, dog owners first have to sign up for membership to ensure that all dogs are provided a safe haven to run around and play.

The general consensus is that Jackson, Michigan, is friendly towards pets and dogs in particular. If you are in town, maybe for a short visit, or staying through a week, you can book a room at pet-friendly hotels such as the Dewey Lake Manor or the Jackson Travelodge or one of the many campgrounds. You can also enjoy amazing Italian cuisine at the dog-friendly Bella Notte Ristorante.
