I have always been an animal lover and over the years I have owned many different pets. I currently have one 6 year old guinea pig named Riza Lin, an 11 month old kitten named Sammy and also an 11 month old Jack Russell/Retriever Mix named Sophie. When I was in High School I use to volunteer at The Humane Society of West Michigan. I worked mostly with the cats but did some dog walking. I had to leave there but have always wanted to go back and finish my dog walking. I have also walked family and friends dogs as well and I enjoy anytime I can spend with animals. My family sometimes calls me the animal whisperer because of the way animals respond to me. Also my job keeps me quite active and I am no stranger to the cold or warm weather changes of Michigan. I would love a chance to meet your furbabies and spend some time with them.

Dog Walking in Sparta

Sparta is a small village which lies in the western, central part of Michigan. The community offers a warm and inviting, family-friendly environment, just north of Grand Rapids. Dog-friendly throughout, your pup will find plenty to do, and two veterinarian hospitals to take care of any health concerns which might arise.

For outdoor fun, the town offers paved and ‘off-road’ hiking trails to the Rogue River, for all pup-abilities. There are beautiful scenic overlooks along the way, perfect for birdwatching and enjoying nature!  

Head to Camp Lake Park for some relaxation on its small, open areas. This is the perfect place for sledding in the winter! There are picnic tables and a lovely playground for the kiddies. 

For even more adventure, Long Lake Park has a 50-acre lake where you can kayak or canoe with your pawtastic pup, and over a mile of shoreline to enjoy the view and share a picnic lunch. There are a variety of open spaces, forests and wetlands to wander around on these 230-acres. Restrooms with water are on-site. Please keep your pup on leash at all these wonderful, outdoor locations.

Grab your pup and head to Sparta for a memorable day together!
