“Lover of dogs, walks, and walking dogs! & cuddles!”

I moved back to the Lancaster area with my husband and our cavapoo, Ella about a year ago, and I’d love be able to help out other dogs and their families as others helped me out with Ella when I was working full time! I love dogs and have had them as pets my whole life. I treat all dogs with the same love, care, and responsibility as I give to Ella. I would love to be able to spend time with new furry friends!

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.
