Hey my name is Carmine! I’m currently looking for a full time engineering job and I figured it would be great to do Wag in the meantime . My dog Millie is almost 8 years old and she’s the sweetest thing ever. She’s some a Jack Russel/Italian Greyhound Mix and while she’s one of the greatest things I’ve got going right now she doesn’t love to walk all that much. So I’d like to brighten up my days by meeting some new dogs and getting some light exercise.

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 :)

Located about 15 minutes west of Detroit, Westland is a great place to spend time with your pup. Pup parents also do not have to travel far for quality veterinarian care in Westland. There are nine clinics and hospitals available for all of Fido’s emergency and routine medical needs.  

When Fido needs some exercise, head over to Central City Park where you can walk around the path and let your pooch stretch his legs. Your pup can sniff the plants and flowers in the well-maintained gardens, or sit on a bench and watch the kids play in the skatepark. The area is peaceful and serene, and perfect for a stroll on a sunny day. 

Another popular destination in town is Dead Man’s Hill which features walking trails where you can admire nature or bring a blanket and enjoy a picnic with your pooch. During the winter, this is the best place for sledding.

The Westland Dog Food Company is a great place to find premium food and toys for your pooch. The friendly staff will help you find what you need and answer questions about the best puppy products.

If you are looking for a pooch-friendly place to go for breakfast before heading out to the park, stop by Biggby Coffee on Ford Road in downtown Westland. You can grab a great cup of coffee and muffins while relaxing at the outdoor tables with your pup.
