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. I was born to take care of dogs and have been lucky to play many different roles in their lives over the past 13 years. I worked at a dog daycare, boarding and grooming facility where I took part in every position there. I have also trained and fostered. 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 Royal Oak

Royal Oak, Michigan is a town with a rich history and culture, along with a bustling downtown area and a thriving tourist industry. As luck would have it, it's also home to a wide range of dog-friendly spaces and activities.

Royal Oak itself is home to several dog parks. Wagner Park Dog Run is a large open field (not fenced, though off-leash exercise is still allowed) surrounded by a wooded area. In Cummingston Park, there's also a designated off-leash area. Also in Royal Oak is the Quickstad Park Off Leash Dog Area, a sixty-year-old park that is open from 6 am to 8 pm daily. Another decades-old park is the Mark Twain Park, which features a gated-key access dog park, open to members who have paid the annual fee and provided proof of vaccination.

Rosie's Park is another great Royal Oak attraction, featuring scenic trails through almost 30 acres of forest and field (and, of course, complimentary doggie bags). Or why not try the Red Oaks Nature Center? These paved forest paths are peaceful and quiet, perfect for a gentle stroll with Fido. Locals love the glimpses of wildlife, including deer, fox, and birds, and the well-kept amenities on the trail.
