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 Sylvan Lake

There's no place better than Sylvan Lake. The small town resides on the shores of a lake with the same name, and surrounded by smaller lakes all around the area. The town is one of the tiniest towns in the state, taking up less than a square of a mile. Although tiny, this community sure has a big heart when it comes to dogs, including dog-friendly parks and trails in the already cramped spaces of the city.

Sylvan Community Park is a dog-friendly park located on a small island right on the coast. The park is 15 acres with tennis courts, open fields, benches, and small paved path. There's plenty of parking for humans, and dogs must remain on a leash, with additional features including clean-up stations, water fountains, and trash bins. The park is open from 10 AM to 9 PM.

The Clinton River Trail is a rail-trail path that was converted from the old railroad that used to be in the area. The trail stretches 16 miles, and starts in the neighboring town of Keego Harbor, and extends east past Sylvan Lake. The town only takes up .4 miles of the trail, which is dog-friendly to leashed pups.

Although the nearest animal hospital is in neighboring Keego Harbor, Sylvan Lake is still a wonderful place to raise and walk your dog.
