Mount Clemens in Macomb County has a lot
to offer the travelling pup, with many beautiful recreation areas nearby and river
walks to enjoy. Surrounded on three sides by Clinton Township, and on the
eastern border by Harrison Township, Mount Clemens covers just 4.2 square miles, but is certainly worth stopping to explore. There is one animal
hospital in town, and several vets in surrounding Clinton Township, so you are
assured your pup will be well looked after should he run into any trouble.
The centrepiece to the town for visiting pups is the Behnke Memorial Dog Park. This free park has a fenced area where dogs can run around off the lead and socialise, burn off some energy, and have a great play. There are some communal toys available and tires for pups to practice their agility skills on, plus running water and waste bags provided.
While you are out and about in Mount Clemens, take a walk along the Clinton River and up into the shopping district, where you will find the Orleans Billiards Café for a pet-friendly bite to eat. There is a variety of hearty fare on the menu here, including American favorites such as pizzas, burgers, salads and sandwiches, or you may like to go for something with Mexican flare, such as nachos.
A small town with lots to see and do, you and your dog will have a great time in Mount Clemens.
