Calling all dog lovers!

Come join us for a week-long celebration of summer and furry companions at Ford House! You and your beloved canine friend are invited to explore the breathtaking gardens and grounds that Ford House has to offer. Normally an exclusive perk for Friends of Ford House, this special event opens the estate to the public and their furry pals from Tuesday to Sunday, starting at 8 a.m. until sunset.

As a token of our gratitude for our partnership with the Michigan Humane Society, 40% of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to support their noble cause. It’s a paw-some opportunity to enjoy nature, spend quality time with your dog, and contribute to a meaningful cause all at once. We can’t wait to see wagging tails and happy faces at the Dog Days of Summer event!

*Dogs are not permitted in buildings on the estate.
