Dog Walking in Southfield

Southfield, Michigan, is a bustling white collar and blue collar suburb, located approximately 15 miles from Detroit. The city holds over more than 70,000 people and many people not only call Southfield their home but also their life. Southfield is, aside from Detroit itself, an important economic hub for the other suburbs in the region.

Since Southfield, Michigan, is tightly packed with impressive skyscrapers and lavish office buildings the city does not have its own off-leash dog park as of today. Fortunately, dog owners in Southfield have plenty of alternatives to choose from in the other communities of Oakland County.

The off-leash dog park that requires the least miles in the car is the William Grace Dog Park in the nearby town of Farmington Hills. For 30 dollars a year dogs can run wild in safe, enclosed environment. Small dogs can play in their own designated area and do not have to fear harassment from larger breeds.

One of the absolute faves in the Southfield area is Rotary Park, located in Livonia. Dog owners can take their dogs on a stroll through the woods and experience an impressive scenery. The environment is very serene, with a large stream running through the park. A perfect get-away from the tumultuous and often stressful live in Southfield, Michigan.
