My name is Carol and I grew up in a house full of dogs. There were more dogs in our house than kids, and there were 4 of us. My parents were dog trainers, and their dogs, Viszla, were trained in obedience, show and field trials. While I never participated in shows I accompanied my family to all events and assisted handling the dogs. After I was on my own I used all the techniques I learned at home with my dogs. Using positive reinforcement I was able to enjoy a pack of three dogs ranging from 6 pounds to 96 pounds. They were a well behaved group in and around the kitchen and out on a neighborhood walk. I always made sure they knew that I was in charge, and in exchange we enjoyed many happy hours together.

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 :)

Nine miles east of Taylor along the Detroit River in Wyandotte is a pup-tastic park to check out. Bishop Park has everything you could want in a park; grills and well-maintained picnic areas, restrooms, a playground, ball courts and ample parking. Dogs are welcome here, but must remain leashed. While enjoying the park’s amenities together, take time to look out over the river for spectacular views and see if you can spot some ducks, swans and geese that call the water home. Fishing is permitted from the pier if you are keen on catching some lunch yourself. Failing that, there are four pet-friendly restaurants close by where you can sit with your pup at one of the outdoor tables; RP McMurphy’s, Dangerously Delicious Pies, Belicoso Café and Joe’s Hamburgers. To end the day with something sweet, head to Stroh’s Ice Cream Parlour for a tasty treat.
