The Town Village Sterling Heights has invited us to bring our beloved dogs to visit them. Town Village is an independent living community for seniors. Because it is independent living, not a nursing home, your calm & loving dog is welcome to visit without being a certified pet therapy dog. We meet with residents who are interested in seeing, hearing about and interacting with your dog. Your dog should be people friendly, not just interested in other dogs. On leash, you will introduce your dog to residents, show off tricks if you wish and spend time with some really nice people. These Meetups last about an hour. This is an hour well spent. For our active dogs, we recommend a walk or run before coming to Town Village, so the dogs can relax and be adored.
Some confusion remains on location. We no longer meet on the first floor in a game room on the left of the entrance. A social director thought we should move to second floor were the entrance to the cafeteria is at the top of the stairs. After a while the seniors voted that down. But when fewer senior came down to the first floor we asked to go back up stairs but we MUST stay on the street side or the area, allowing seniors to get to the lunch room without worry about dog or leash interference to their path. There are elevators both to the right and left of the main entrance.
