Hi, I'm Melissa! I'm currently an NYC college student looking forward to giving lots of love and attention to your dog! I became a vegetarian when I was twelve years old because of the animal abuse I saw online. I have grown up with 3 cats and my grandmothers 6 dogs, so I am an all around animal lover! I spent my time in middle school volunteering at animal shelters and donating portions of my pay checks in high school to these shelters! I love animals and I will make yours feel nothing but loved. I look forward to meeting with your furry friend soon!

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 :)

Hi there! I am a huge animal lover and especially love dogs! They are bundles of joy and I appreciate each dog's unique personality. Sadly, my parents would not agree to getting a pup of our own, so I started to volunteer walking/sitting a friend's rescue Pit-bull mix and developed a deep bond. I have experience with all breed types and there’s not a dog I don’t love! I'm excited to meet and care for your furry friend! :)

Dog Walking in Lake Orion

Lake Orion is a village in the center of the Orion Township in Michigan. This village has a personality all its own with plenty of historic buildings to explore. It is about 45 minutes from Detroit. The village is less than two square miles, but the population is growing fast. Lake Orion has been around since the early 1800s and was once little more than a sawmill and some simple homesteads. 

The town's namesake lake is 482 acres where you can explore, swim, sail, and fish with your whole family. Dog walkers love the village for its simple charm and scenic walks. There are very few places you can walk without enjoying the views of the sparkling waters of the lake.

If you are looking for a yummy tail-wagging spot, CJ's Sandbar is a pup-friendly restaurant in downtown Lake Orion. There are four outdoor tables where you can enjoy a burger, seafood, or a salad, paired with a top-rated beverage, with your pup enjoying the smells right next to you.

There are three animal hospitals between Lake Orion and the larger area of Lake Orion Township, so you won't have much trouble finding the care your pet needs if you are moving into the area.
