Hey my name is Carmine! I’m currently looking for a full time engineering job and I figured it would be great to do Wag in the meantime . My dog Millie is almost 8 years old and she’s the sweetest thing ever. She’s some a Jack Russel/Italian Greyhound Mix and while she’s one of the greatest things I’ve got going right now she doesn’t love to walk all that much. So I’d like to brighten up my days by meeting some new dogs and getting some light exercise.

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 Novi

Novi is a thriving small city 25 miles west from Detroit, and has been growing bigger and bigger each year. To humans and pups, the town will become a true Novi-lty to them thanks to its gorgeous rolling hills, open fields, and nine animal hospitals.

The gem of Novi for dogs is the Novi Dog Park, a vibrant area with lively vegetation, green fields, and scattered trees contained within a .75 acre fenced-off area. Dogs can run free while off-leash and enjoy features like separate areas for large and small dogs, shaded sitting areas, and double-gated entrances. Additionally, there are also water fountains and clean-up stations inside both areas. A membership is required for residents and nonresidents, for a small fee.

The gorgeous park of Lakeshore Park is right on the southern shore of Walled Lake, with over 50 acres of recreational spots, open space, forested trails, and a picnic area. There are three picnic shelters, a .4-mile walking trail, a soccer field, a beach, restrooms, and a volleyball pit. With scenic views of the water and surrounding vegetation, you and Fido will love playing or going for a walk inside the park, as long as they remain on a leash. Other amenities include a barbeque station, a playground, benches, water fountains, and a clean-up stations in the parking area.

From safe enclosed places to play into sprawling hills to walk on, Novi will provide you and your pup some of the best places to get outside and enjoy the day.
