Hello! My name is Michele, and I am a high school biology teacher. I love animals! I previously had a dog of my own, but cannot own another one right now. That's why I would love to take your pup for walks around the neighborhood or at a nearby park. I loved taking my former dog for walks on local hiking trails and to the dog park for playtime. Can't wait for an enjoyable walk with your dog!

I go the extra mile for the dogs in my care. I have over 12 years experience fostering dogs with special medical needs so giving medications or IV fluids is not an issue. I only feed holistic food and treats and purchase toys made in the USA. I will treat your pets like they were my own. I love to exercise and run so if your dog is active, I am the sitter for you. My own pets are very friendly to other dogs I can separate your dogs from my own. My cats and caged pets are kept away from the dogs so interaction is not an issue if your dog does not like them. I have had dogs and cats for over 40 years and have excellent references from adopters and current clients.

Dog Walking in Jackson Township

Jackson Township has a population of 54,856, and is named after Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States. Aside from its historical significance, this quaint locale is a furrific place to take your canine companion.

If you want to eat or get a cup of coffee with your fur buddy, you can visit Mona Lisa Pizza, Mangia Brick Oven Pizza and Rosko's Bagels & Waffles. All have dog-friendly outside patios where you can chow down together. You can also go camping with your pup at the Butterfly Camping Resort. Or try the Jackson AirBnB Rentals, where big dogs are allowed to stay at no extra charge. (Pet policies vary based on the host's preferences, though.)

In Jackson, you can find one of the Hurricane Harbor water parks where your dog might be allowed to go in. According to the official rules of the park, pets may be allowed on the property if are they properly checked into the onsite kennel located in the main parking lot.

While you're here, you must visit the Bunker Hill Bogs Recreation Area, where you will find sandy walking paths and trails. There are a couple of ponds here where some people fish. Dogs are allowed, but they must be on-leash. You can also hang our with your pup at Johnson Memorial Park. It has picnic tables, sports fields, restrooms, grills, and a dog park on-site.
