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

Dog Walking in Muskegon

Muskegon, also called Michigan's "Port City," is a beautiful lakeside city that boasts an active cultural and outdoors scene - making it the perfect place to explore with Fido in tow. Dog-friendly attractions and areas abound in this former lumber town.

Dog-friendly parks and beaches comprise much of Muskegon's outdoor recreational land. Dog Star Ranch is a massive facility designed especially for dogs - with over 48 acres of play space, five separated off-leash areas, miles of nature trails, agility courses, and a special "excavation" section, your pooch will thank you. Dog Star Ranch offers annual memberships or daily-use passes.

If you're in search of a free park, try Hoffmaster State Park. Three miles of coastline views alongside grass-covered dunes make this park one not to miss. Dogs aren't allowed on the beach there, but if you're looking to dip a toe (or paw) into the surf, visit the Norman F. Kruse Park. Open from 7 am to 11 pm daily, this park has a fenced-off section just for dogs to play on the beach.

Muskegon is revered by locals for its' long, lakeside trails - all of which are dog-friendly! The Muskewata Trail boasts 26 miles of paved paths, extending from Muskegon to Marne, and providing access to farmland, creeks, and residential areas. The slightly shorter (22.5 miles) Hart-Montague Trail State Park is more rural, but with modern amenities like scenic overlooks and picnic areas. Need something shorter? Check out City Lakeshore Trail - ten miles of dunes, with access to historic maritime areas.
