I grew up with a Rottweiler/Blue Heeler mix by my side for fifteen years who was the light of my life -- we were inseparable! Since then, I've always taken dog-related jobs, from watching over a sled dog kennel in Quebec with ninety-two huskies to dog-sitting my friends' beautiful pack of six mutts. I can't wait to care for your pup!

Dog Walking in Pokagon Township

Pokagon is a small stop along the M-51 highway in Michigan. Though the entire area takes up 34.4 square miles, the population clusters at either side in the neighboring towns. This leaves Pokagon a beautiful, rural area with plenty to see if you’re passing through. Dogs will love the break from the hustle and bustle of the city, and that’s not a bad relaxation recipe for their owners, either.


If your dog needs vet care while you’re in Pokagon, head north to neighboring Dowagiac, where three vets (including one emergency hospital) serve the surrounding community. Despite the distance, the trip is completely by freeway and only 15-20 minutes from most parts of Pokagon.


Dowagiac Woods Nature Sanctuary, despite the name, falls within the bounds of Pokagon Township. This 384-acre sanctuary is a great place to walk, destress, and get some exercise in. Be sure to keep your dog leashed as you walk the trails; dogs are pawsome, but local wildlife doesn’t always agree! In addition to a leash, you should bring water and a bowl for your dog’s safety. There aren’t drinking fountains in nature, so bring a bottle for yourself too. Pokagon is a great place for dogs to visit or call home. Give Pokagon a visit and see for yourself.
