““Dogs do speak, but only to those who listen””

My name is Jennifer, and my pup’s name is Brody. He is a 4 year old Shih Tzu-Schnauzer mix & my best friend! I am the mother of 4 grown children, I live & work in the Plymouth-Canton area, have incredible love & respect for all of our four legged friends.I have always had a deep love for animals. While not all pups are initially friendly and cuddly, I’ve yet to meet one that if given time and patience, was not accepting and lovable.

Dog Walking in South Lyon

Dogs of all shapes and sizes have found a haven living in the pet-friendly city of South Lyon, Michigan! South Lyon was originally an agricultural hub built around two railroads. The city was incorporated in the early 1900s. The railroads crossing through the city have been restored as rail-trails, which make beautiful places to hike with Fido! In the center of town is the business district at Ten Mile Road and Pontiac Trail, which has tons of residents with an even busier downtown area. As South Lyon expanded over the years, the city never lost its historic and charming feel for both human and canine citizens!

Dog owners have everything they need to keep their pups tip-top in South Lyon. There are 5 veterinary hospitals, 6 pet groomers, and a pet shop right here in town. If you're the outdoorsy type, there are 4 gorgeous city parks and a state recreation area bordering the northwestern side of the city. The "foodies" in the dog pack will love visiting the two dog-friendly restaurants in the Salem Farm Estates and Forrest Ridge neighborhoods. Fido can pull his tail up alongside your table as you dine in the outside eating area. South Lyon also hosts many outdoor events where you can bring your dog, like the Farmers Market or Concerts in the Park series.

There are tons of recreational activities to do with Fido, like fishing, hiking, and boating. If you want to stay in the neighborhood, you can always walk over to Coleman Park, which has the same amenities on a smaller scale. Of course, you can camp here, but the park is also great for a game of fetch!

Does your dog love living in Michigan for the lakes? Michigan actually comes from a Native American word that translates to "large water." That's what Fido's been trying to tell you with all the barking! In the Nichwagh neighborhood, you can walk along the banks of  Nichwagh Lake — a great place to fish with Fido! The lake flows its way in amorphous streams north of 9 Mile Road. The best time to fish is in the fall, when the lake is less swampy due to algae blooms. Fido will be going "mutts" to jump in for a swim!

Does your dog love to wake you up in the morning for his walk? You'll need a cup of coffee first!

At the Java House, you'll find tons of specialty drinks, like different flavors of the South Lyon Sports Latte. The coffee shop also serves deli sandwiches and fresh-baked muffins, scones, and bagels. Fido is more than welcome to join you while you enjoy your coffee. That'll give you the energy to hit the street for a walk!

Head south in Hidden Creek to find the Huron Valley Trail System. This 12.2-mile trail system winds its way across Oakland County with plenty to see on the way. The Pontiac Trail runs through South Lyon and begins in Lyon Oaks Park. The entire trail system is refurbished trails that once hosted railroads — a vestige of the pioneer times.

Does your dog like to join you for a meal at the locals' spot? If you live in Salem Farms Estates, you and your dog can head to the Lyon Grill. The experience here is a local favorite! Your dog can join you in the outside seating area, where a bunch of local pups come to hang out with their owners. The Lyon Grill is definitely the place to get a steak, like a New York Strip or Filet Mignon. Veggie lovers can also satisfy their cravings with entrees like the Butternut Squash Ravioli, Rattlesnake Pasta, or Michigan Cherry Salad. Make sure you bring treats so Fido doesn't get jealous!
