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 Madison Heights

Madison Heights is a suburban city, located only 10 miles from the Detroit's downtown area. Once part of the Royal Oaks Township, Madison Heights incorporated in 1955, and was the largest suburb in the county at the time, ranking as the fifth most populated suburb too. The city today is one of the highest ranking in dog-friendliness, and provides residents with a dog park, trails, and 3 animal hospitals.

The dog park is known as the Red Oaks Dog Park, a scenic fenced-in area along the Red Run Creek. The area has a vibrant grassy terrain that takes up 5.3 acres of land, with separate areas for large and small dogs, and double-gated entrances. Humans get to relax under shaded picnic areas and enjoy other amenities, like dog-sized water fountains, waste stations, a hose for cleaning off Fido, benches, and trash bins.

Afterwards, you can walk in the Red Oaks Nature Center nearby. The nature center is a 38-acre natural area with dense woods and a scattered trail system. There are seasonal displays, programs, and picnic areas along the trail, along with other amenities like water fountains, benches, and trash bins. Dogs can enjoy the park too while they remain on a leash!

The suburban area of Madison Heights has some great natural areas, and continues to include dogs when expanding and making new public parks.
