Holt is a sleepy little community with plenty to offer its four-legged residents and visitors. Located in Ingham County, Holt is just north of Mason in the Great Lake State of Michigan. Although it is a small community, there is one veterinary clinic, as well as an animal hospital in Holt, so you can rest easy knowing there is help should your pup start feeling a little under the weather.

A must-see when in town is the 45-acre Valhalla Park, the central recreation area for local residents and visitors alike. Here, you will find a beach area at the lake, as well as picnic areas with cooking facilities, toilets and a playground. Your pup will have a ball with you and your family here! The Valhalla Trail winds from the park, through wooded areas and around the lake, and south to Holt Road where you can then take an easy walk downtown. This is an on-lead area, but a pleasant and easy way to get around. 

When hunger strikes, head to one of the pet-friendly places to eat, such as Buddies Grill for some pub-style grub, or Zaytoon for a Mediterranean feast.

With plenty of green spaces, trails to explore and great food options, you will love visiting this little town.

    Kiwanis Park is a 14-acre community park at the south end of Holt where you can take your dog for a leashed walk. There is a track you can traverse, as well as plenty of grassy areas for a little rest and refresh. Other amenities include a playground, picnic area, restrooms and water, but do bring your own clean up bags. After a little caffeine hit? Take your pooch with you to Biggby Coffee, just a few blocks north of the park near the town centre. Set yourself up at one of their outdoor tables for a sweet treat and a hot cuppa.

    If you are looking for a space for your pooch to run off-leash, head to the Soldan Dog Park in Hawk Island Park in Lansing. Here you'll find 12-acres of fun to be had, and your pup is welcome to roam free and mingle with his furry friends. There is water for you both available as well as free clean up bags. You will need to get a day pass from Lansing Parks and Recreation for your visit, so why not make a day of it?
