I would be honored to walk your pup! My name's Jenn; I'm a dog enthusiast currently living in Lancaster with my husband & our husky mix, Jackson. I've grown up with German Shepherds and Labs my whole life, and have puppy sat for all kinds. I've found that I'm most happy and at peace when in the presence of dogs. I'm also a singer, so if your dog is left humming a new tune I wrote for him or her during our stroll, it's on me! Thank you for your trust and I hope to meet your pet very soon!

My name is Julie and I have lived in Lancaster County my entire life. I love all sorts of animals and love walking dogs. I did not have any pets as a child, so I started walking the dogs in my neighborhood for their owners and loved every minute of it. I am a dog mom to a 10-year-old Chihuahua named Daisy. Unfortunately, she does not enjoy walks as much as I do. That is why it is my honor and delight to walk dogs of others. I have experience walking dogs of all sizes and energy levels and feel confident in my ability to walk a dog no matter what special considerations need to be made. I am looking forward to meeting and walking with the dogs of Lancaster!

Hi! My name is Gabby, I currently volunteer at The Pet Pantry of Lancaster to assist cleaning and medicating both dogs and cats that come in. I love being able to help anyone out with their pets so I look after a handful of my friends dogs whenever they need me to. I'd love to be helpful to other dog owners out there wanting their dog to hop outside, get some fresh air, and go for that walk they look forward to. I know how much my dog, Coco, looks forward to her walks, and I'd love to help anyone out there who needs a hand with their pup!

Hi there! My name is Tim and I have always loved animals, especially dogs. I have volunteered extensively as a dog walker at the Western PA Humane Society, and I have expertise as a dog sitter as well. During these experiences, I provided dogs of various breeds and sizes with exercise, companionship, and emotional support, and I was responsible for the safety and well-being of the dogs. I have interacted with quite a variety of canine personalities and behaviors, and I believe that my experience, responsibility, and compassion serve as an assurance to you that I am the best candidate to care for your best friend!

Dog Walking in Holtwood

At first glance, Holtwood looks like a small town with less than 100 people and perhaps not much to do. While it may be true that there is a serious lack of restaurants and shopping malls, there is definitely no shortage of things to with your pup! 

Holtwood is primarily a hydroelectric power plant town, which means two things; one, the town has one primary function, and many people who live in the town work at the plant. Two, because of the presence of the hydroelectric power plant, you know there is a giant, beautiful source of natural flowing water -- Susquehanna River.

Not only does the river run through amazing, beautiful land, but the region also has plenty of beautiful parks and forests for you and Fido to explore together. If you want to spend some time on the water or go fishing, you'll be spoiled for places to do so here! There are also plenty of forests and nature preserves in the area for people and pups who love to spend their days lost among large, gorgeous trees.

The best part about living in a sparsely populated area is the abundance of beauty and nature. One of the best nature preserves in the area is located in West Holtwood -- the Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve. This beautiful nature preserve has plenty of hiking trails, some even leading to freshwater waterfalls. The hiking trails range from incredibly easy to highly challenging, making it the perfect spot to take any pooch, regardless of age or breed. However, beware this nature facility has no facilities for you or your pooch. Make sure you take a leash, water and your own doggie poop bags.

Even though this park is another city, it is only a ten-minute drive away. If you drive south to Drumore, you will find the 224-acre Susquehannock State Park. This gigantic park has plenty of open grassy places, hiking and walking trails, and incredibly scenic views. Furthermore, the park has many picnic spots with tables and playgrounds for kids. You can make your trip to this state park an afternoon excursion, or stretch it into a weekend trip. Just be careful and keep your pooch on a leash -- it's easy to get lost in this vast forest. Don't forget to bring all the necessary supplies, like water and waste bags.

Are you and Fido bored of leashed walks on the sidewalk? Hop in the car and head to State Game Lands Number 83 hunting preserve. This nature preserve is a great place to go to see some wildlife with your pup. If you hunt, make sure you have the proper permits and attire for your pooch. If you do not hunt, you may want to check when hunting season is on so you and your pup can enjoy the park without hearing any shots. Either way, you and your pup will have a pawesome time at State Game Lands Number 83 because of the abundance of beauty and nature here!
