“Dog lover with 20+ breed experience”

I'm Julia, and I love dogs! I'd love to take your pup for a quick walk around the neighborhood to burn off some energy or spend time with them while you're away for a sitting or boarding! I treat every dog as if they were my own, since as a student, I'm not in a place to have my own to care for right now. My customer service background, attention to detail and genuine care for all animals will ensure that you and your pup will have a great experience.

Dog Walking in Okemos

Okemos, a city in Ingham County, Michigan, was named in honor of Native American chieftain John Okemos, a leader of the Ojibwa people in the 19th-century. You'll find plenty of historic sites in and around Okemos where you can learn more about his life and legacy. Okemos is also the birthplace of esteemed American novelist and creative writing professor James Hynes. TV and film star Seth Meyers also went to elementary school in Okemos.

Okemos has a few claims to fame, but Fido probably won't care about that. Luckily, Okemos also has a few pet-friendly places for you and your hound to sniff out! You'll find more than five animal clinics here, so no need to worry about your pup's health. There's also a pet store and groomer here, so you'll have everything you need at your disposal.

Need a place where you and Fido can lodge in Okemos? No problem! Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Lansing Okemos and Comfort Inn Okemos both welcome pets. Be sure to check their websites for information regarding pet fees and restrictions

For everything else, Okemos is about an hour and a half from Detroit, where you and your pooch can find so many dog-friendly parks, restaurants, and activities that you won't know where to go first!
