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 :)

“High quality care begins with trust”

Quality care begins with trust and I am committed to maintaining that trust through out the care of your pup.

My life would be empty without my dogs and there is always room for more in my heart. I can't wait to meet you and yours.

Dog Walking in Pleasant Ridge

The city of Pleasant Ridge in Oakland County, Michigan is known for its pristine neighborhoods, historic areas, and engaged citizens who regularly plan community activities. Over 2,500 people live in Pleasant Ridge, including several dog owners who love to use the excellent park facilities in town with their four-legged companions. Many of the homes in Pleasant Ridge are part of the national historic district, and if you're not at an off-leash park, walking the tree-lined streets in town with your dog on a leash is a wonderful way to spend time. Along the way, you'll probably run into friendly locals and get a sense of what a tight-knit community Pleasant Ridge is!

Pleasant Ridge Dog Run can be found in the northeastern corner of Pleasant Ridge, and rather than separating dogs by size, this single, large space invites dogs of all sizes to interact. You'll find running water, waste disposal supplies, seating, and shade within the dog park. You're required to purchase a pass and provide proof of your dog's vaccinations and registration before you visit this park, but regular users insist the cost is worth it! If you're looking for a dog park that doesn't require a fee, there are plenty of those nearby, too!
