““Dogs do speak, but only to those who listen””

My name is Jennifer, and my pup’s name is Brody. He is a 4 year old Shih Tzu-Schnauzer mix & my best friend! I am the mother of 4 grown children, I live & work in the Plymouth-Canton area, have incredible love & respect for all of our four legged friends.I have always had a deep love for animals. While not all pups are initially friendly and cuddly, I’ve yet to meet one that if given time and patience, was not accepting and lovable.

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 :)

“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.

“loving care while you're away!”

I’ve been dog walking for several years now, and have one year of experience at a shelter both as an animal care attendant and as a medical technician. I’ve dealt with diverse personalities in animals, and I’m able to adapt quickly to each individual animal’s quirks. I’m patient and focused on your furry friend’s well-being… if they’re with me, they will remain occupied and have access to plenty of enrichment.

Dog Walking in Ypsilanti

The city of Ypsilanti is adjacent to Ann Arbor, Michigan, and is home to Eastern Michigan University. Once a bustling auto manufacturing town, Ypsilanti has become an arts destination, but first and foremost is known as a university town. It is also located in an area rich in natural resources that you and your pup companion will enjoy.

Take, for instance, the Border-to-Border Trail, a partially constructed system of trails designed to eventually run for 70 miles along the Huron River. The portion that passes through Ypsilanti is approximately 7 miles long and is surfaced with gravel, asphalt and boardwalk over wetland areas. Fido is welcome to join you on the trail with his leash on. The trail passes through pastures with wildflowers, and through urban areas as well. Bridges and overlooks provide views of the Huron and its tributaries, and there are lovely green spaces where you can stop for a picnic and a rest among the shade trees.  A perfect spot for you and your fur-buddy to walk, jog, bike or skate. Be aware that the route is mostly in the open, so it would be a good idea to take along plenty of water.

If you’re packing snacks and beverages for your hike, or you find yourself hungry and thirsty at its end, head over to Sweetwaters Coffee and Tea, and take your fur-pup along to join you at one of their outside tables. She’ll need to wait outside while you go in to order, but the wait will be worth it if you bring her a scone or let her have part of your quiche.

With so much to offer in and around town, Ypsilanti is sure to become your pup's favorite destination.

The City Center neighborhood of Ypsilanti is home to Recreation Park, a 17 acre expanse that features ball fields, a playground and community gardens. But happiest of all for your four-legged pal is its walking track and picnic areas. While she is welcome in this park on leash, the fields and basketball courts are understandably off limits, as is the pool. There is a shelter building and restrooms as well, so drinking water is available. If your hunger pangs (and hers!) merit more than a picnic under a tree, a little way up Michigan Avenue is Bona Sera Restaurant. Their outdoor tables are perfect for you and your canine lunch date, and their menu will please. This is comfort food at its best, combining familiar ingredients with twisty preparations. Don’t forget to share some with your bestie!

This neighborhood of Ypsilanti is host to Frog Island Park, a beautifully maintained park spread over 5 acres that features a running track and vast green grassy areas for playing (on leash) or just relaxing. It also boasts a bike trail, and Fido is welcome there too. Mature shade trees make pleasant spots to hang out with your furry bestie, share a picnic lunch or take a snooze. Grab your fishing pole and, with Fido by your side, catch some fresh fish for dinner at the gazebo built out over the river. Or just sit and listen to the kids playing, the guitars strumming and the birds singing.

This neighborhood, known by some as Depot Town, shares Frog Island Park with its neighbor. It also hosts Prospect Park, which is 9.5 acres just adjacent to the historic district. While it features athletic facilities, it also offers dog-friendly pathways and expanses of lawn for fun in the park with Fido. Whether romping, strolling under the spreading trees or sharing a picnic lunch, this is a lovely spot within the city to get some exercise or just relax. It even boasts a small pond called Luna Lake with a fountain that just might cool you off if the breeze is right. For a hearty, post-walk meal, lead your fur-pup over to the Sidetrack Bar and Grill where you can sit on the patio and share one of their huge, juicy burgers. Beer for you, water for Fido. Pawsome!

The Rawsonville neighborhood is home to 3 dog-friendly parks: North Hydro Park, Lakeview Park, and Sugarbrook Park. North Hydro Park stretches over 46 acres and features a natural setting made better by boardwalks over the wetlands. You and Fido can laze away an afternoon fishing from one of the docks, or put in a canoe or kayak on Ford Lake for a paddle. Drinking water is available for your fur-pup from the restrooms, and after a walk or fishing session, head over to the picnic area for a snack and a sit. Lakeview Park is somewhat smaller, only about 4 acres, but makes up for its small size by offering lots of open, green space and a paved perimeter trail. Sugarbrook Park, like its neighbor Lakeview, is small but lovely. Fenced and nicely landscaped with lots of green grass that feels so good on Fido’s tootsies, it also features shaded areas for relaxing with your furry bestie and a book, or even a nap. Picnic areas round out this park’s appeal. Be sure to keep your fur-baby leashed while in the parks.

Ford Heritage Park is a 106-acre expanse that features attractions for all members of the family, including the canine ones. Sports facilities and playgrounds will keep the humans busy while Fido and his human bestie wander around the grounds on natural and paved trails, meandering in and out of trees and grassy swaths, with Fido securely leashed. After the walk, a snack or lunch will be easy to do at one of the shaded picnic areas. Ford Lake Park is another green space in this large neighborhood. Also dog-friendly, this is considered a “signature” park for the town, representing its auto-making industry past. It features fishing areas, both wooded areas and open spaces, crisscrossed with trails over its 98-acre expanse. With restrooms, sports facilities and several picnic areas, everyone, including Fido, will find something to love here.
