“Wanted: Dogs to spoil rotten :)”

Hello! I absolutely love dogs and have experience with all types. I believe dogs have their own distinct personalities and I love getting to know them and learning what makes them happy. All dogs deserve a healthy, fun filled life and having regular exercise is so important in this. I take all precautions to keep dogs safe in all the weather elements, as well as from other animals we may encounter. I use positive reinforcement for good behavior and would love to meet new furry friends!

Hello, my name is Michael, I'm a 22-year old graduate of The Ohio State University. I’ve had animals all of my life, and I currently have two dogs and a cat. Having pets has made me a more caring, patient and understanding person, and every second spent with a dog is a precious moment. I’m experienced with both high and low energy dogs as I’ve had puppies and I’ve had dogs as old as 17!

Dog Walking in North Canton

Even though North Canton is a medium-sized town in Stark County, it is one of the most dog-friendly places in Ohio! This is the pawfect destination for those of you who want to spoil your four-legged buddies. It's also located just an hour  south of Cleveland in case you want more dog-friendly fun. While visiting North Canton, you can take your pick of local dog-friendly lodging accommodations, like the Red Roof Inn Canton, Hyatt Place Canton, or Motel 6 North Canton.

When it comes to pet care, the town offers a little bit of everything that pet owners will need during their stay. There are groomers, pet stores, dog trainers, and, most importantly, there are more than five animal hospital and clinics that will take great care of your pup!

After taking a stroll through the city or visiting one of the 7 parks that North Canton offers, you can rest up in one of the 9 dog-friendly restaurants that are scattered throughout town, such as the Eadies Fish House, Four Kids Coffee or Aladdin's Eatery.

One of the things that's worth seeing while you're here is the Blue Water Majesty Museum, which features intricate ship models carved from exotic species of wood. Fido will have to sit this one out, though, but he won't mind, since there are plenty of other places in North Canton that will welcome him with open arms!

Another option that you can explore in the vicinity of North Canton is the Keyser Dog Park. Just 26 miles north of North Canton, this park grants canine visitors 2 acres of fenced off-leash area. The ground is covered in grass and the plot is enriched with numerous trees that provide shade over the park. This place is quieter than most of the dog parks in the area, so it is suitable for those of you who have shy pups or want to avoid crowded parks. Although the park is open at night, there aren’t any lights when it gets dark, so it's not suitable for evening visits.

Furnas Dog Park is almost 10 miles away from North Canton, and it is located in East Massillon. Like most dog parks, this fenced, off-leash park has a small dog area and a large dog area. Even though the park is mostly covered in grass, there are some places that can get muddy when it rains, so you'd better bring a towel to wipe up your pooch. Make a note to bring your own water since there isn’t any in the park. The large trees cover this park with a nice, thick layer of shade, perfect for the warm sunny days!
