Hello. My name is Cathy and I am, by nature, an individual who is passionate about caring for people and animals who need good, quality care. My adoration for animals, especially dogs, began when I was "knee high to a grasshopper," and it has never wavered over the years. In my family, my canine babies outnumber my human ones by a score of five to two. We have two chihuahuas, a hairless Chinese crested, a miniature dachshund, and the goofiest golden doodle in the world. We, also, have two cats and a leopard gecko named Mikey! In our home, our animals are treated like family members, not pets. If you are looking for a reliable and trustworthy person to treat your pooches like an extended member of the family, then I am the dog walker for you. If you have special requests/instructions, then you can rest assured that your wishes will be carried out each and every time without fail. I will treat your dogs the same as I do my own, and they are pretty pampered, if I must say so myself.While I realize how difficult it can be to trust someone else to care for your animals, I have years of experience caring for both animals and people in various situations/environments, so you can rest assured that they are in the best hands...other than your own.

Hi my name is Kimberly. I’m a true dog lover and always have been since I was a child. I have grown up around dogs all my life. I have a dog of my own his name is Anakin. He is truly like my 3rd child. Love my boy so very much! Such a sweetheart with tons of energy. I have to say he really matches my personality in that way. I’m high energy as well. I’m a runner and I bike so I like to stay very active and my pup runs with me. Nothing like having a canine companion they truly are the best. I look very forward to meeting and walking your very special sweet pups!

I love dogs. I've had dogs all my life...normally more than one at a time. It is so much fun to walk and play with them and experience their wonderful individual personalities. Whenever my wife and I are at the mall we always stop to play with the puppies at the pet store. Plus, when we see someone in our neighborhood walking a dog we always stop to say hello which is why we always have dog treats in our car.

Hi I’m Linda! Since as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a dog lover. If I’m missing at a party or gathering, it’s usually because I found a dog and I’m hanging out with them. My babies are 9 & 11 and are my world. I have been pet sitting and helping to walk dogs since I was strong enough to hold a leash. I can’t wait to meet your dog!

Dogs have been a huge part of my life ever since I was born. Some of my earliest memories involve one of the two beautiful Dachshunds that my family has owned during my lifetime. I have always loved spending with dogs wether it is my own or someone else’s. Walking and sitting dogs is something I have done for my neighbors and and friends since I was 15. I feel like my experience and love for dogs makes me a great canidate to be a walker.

Dog Walking in Hershey

Hershey, Pennsylvania is located just east the state’s capital, Harrisburg. When you think of the name “Hershey,” you might think of chocolate, and you wouldn’t be wrong! This city is home to Hersheypark, a chocolate themed amusement park, and Hershey World, a park and museum, of sorts. And while all of that will be fun for you and your human friends, everyone knows that chocolate isn’t good for dogs, so it’s probably best your canine companion stay away from these places. 

Hershey does have a couple of dog-friendly restaurants, but if you’re looking to have some serious fun with your dog, considering visiting a nearby city. Within a twenty-mile radius of Hershey, there’s plenty to do with your pooch. There are several walking trails, a few dog parks, and many more restaurants where your dog can join you for a meal that’ll make you say “Bone Appetit!” 

Hershey does, however, have several different veterinarian clinics, including one that’s open twenty-four hours to handle any emergencies your dog might have. If you’re looking for somewhere with easy access to dog-friendly activities, check out Hershey, Pennsylvania!

If you’re looking for a delicious place to dine with your dapper dog, make sure to check out The Chocolate Avenue Grill – despite the name, the restaurant is dog-friendly! The Chocolate Avenue Grill serves up classic American dishes, including tasty Philly hoagies, which are a Pennsylvania classic. The restaurant has a large patio with fifteen tables, and all of them are dog-friendly. Your dog must stay on his leash at all times, and good behavior is required. Can you resist the temptation to give Fido just one bite? You probably won’t want to share! The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday.

If your dog loves going for walks, head to nearby Colebrook, Pennsylvania, where there’s an access point to the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail. The access point is located about twenty minutes southeast of Hershey. At 14.5 miles long, this trail is sure to tire out even the most energetic of dogs, even if you don’t walk the entire length. Your dog is allowed to join you on the trail, but he must stay on a leash at all times. Water is not provided, so you’ll want to bring some for you and your dog. You’ll also need to bring along waste disposal bags to clean up after your pooch.

Located about thirty minutes from Hershey is the capital city of Harrisburg, which is home to Kohl Park’s Happy Tails Dog Park. This dog park features two separate areas: one is for smaller dogs, and the other is for larger dogs. However, larger dogs who aren’t as socialized are allowed in the smaller dog section of the park until they become comfortable. This park is usually pretty busy, allowing your dog to make plenty of pawesome new pals. Water and waste disposal bags are not provided, so you’ll need to bring along your own. This is an off-leash dog park.

About twenty minutes south of Hershey is Elizabethtown, where you’ll find another fun trail to walk with your dog. The Conewago Recreation Trail is just over five miles long, making it an easy walk for routine hikers. But what’s a hike without your best four-legged pal with you? Fido can join you on this trail, as long as he stays on a leash that’s no longer than six feet in length. You should also make sure to bring along plenty of water for both you and your dog, along with waste disposal bags to clean up after your dog.

About twenty miles west of Heshey is Mechanicburg’s Lower Allen Park, home to the locally famous Doggie Dugout! This dog park has plenty of room for your pooch to run around and burn off any pent-up energy he might have. This dog park provides water, toys, and waste disposal bags for your dog, and there’s also plenty of seating for pup parents! Doggie Dugout also has picnic tables if you want to bring a snack. Your dog can explore the rest of Lower Allen Park with you, but he’ll need to be on his leash once he leaves the designated dog park.
