Hi! I'm Mark. I have a 4 year old golden doodle and I've been taking her to the dog park ever since she was 3 months old. I am extremely comfortable around dogs, and I get the sense that the feeling is mutual. I love being around our furry little friends, and there's not too much dog behavior (or lack thereof) that can rattle my composure.

Dog Walking in State College

The city of State College, Pennsylvania, is a great place to enjoy student life and also offers the opportunity to receive a degree in Veterinary Science. But there is more to State College as the borough caters to more than just students. Dog owners, for instance, also feel completely at home in State College.

One of the reasons why State College is a great place to own a dog (or multiple dogs) is Tudek Dog Park. This dog park caters to both small dogs and larger breeds by dividing the play area in two separate sections. The park is fully fenced and therefore completely safe and offers a water pump, so no dog has to suffer from dehydration.

History buffs with a canine companion ought to check out the Bellefonte Central Rail Trail. The route trails through the Penn State Arboretum and is a convenient way to reach the botanical gardens and the wetlands. The path also guides you through a landscape of oak and hickory forests.

This university town has a lot of places to stay for those who visit the town with pets, with multiple chain hotels like Days Inn, Residence Inn by Marriott, Super 8 and Quality Inn. Local restaurants to check out are Clem's Roadside Bar and Grill and Zola Kitchen and Wine Bar.

Tudek Dog Park, a section of Tudek Park, is a great place for dogs to relax and have fun every day. This completely fenced, multi-acre park has separate runs for large dogs and small dogs. There is a pump for drinking water on the premises. Your dog must be leashed in other areas of Tudek park, but the walking trails make it a good place to visit if your dog gets tired of socializing. You can also head to the nearby Champs Sports Grill for dog-friendly outdoor seating and classic sports bar food. Taken together, these locations lead to happy puppies!

Students aren’t the only ones who enjoy living in University Park. Full time residents of the human and canine variety call the area home as well! The experience is made better with frequent trips to Bellefonte Central, a hub of the Rails to Trails conservatory program. This abandoned rail line has been converted into a multi-use trail, and tails are wagging! Park in the convenient lot and then start walking. Just be sure to keep track of the distance, as the rail trail extends beyond University Park. If you’re not careful, you could wind up in another neighborhood! Dogs who love long walks will love Bellefonte Central!

Walnut Springs Park is a very natural, green space that’s perfect for walking your dog. If you and your pup want to feel like you’ve stepped out of State College and into the woods, all without leaving Lemont, this is the place to go. There are walking paths and lots of room to stretch out! Lederer Park is another good choice if you like a relaxed walk, and it’s more developed than Walnut Springs Park. Lederer has some playground equipment and pavilions, but there are still walking areas and plenty of green! It may be a better choice for dogs who can’t (or don’t want to) walk as far as Walnut Springs Park encourages.

The Penn State University neighborhood hugs the campus tightly, extending just a few blocks in every direction. Now, thanks to two local favorites, you only have to go a block from campus to find two great places to dine with dogs. The first place is Webster’s Bookstore Cafe. Popular with students and everyone who loves a light lunch and great read, this place offers outdoor seating and books to browse. If you want something more formal, stroll down the street to Zola Kitchen and Wine Bar. Formal Italian favorites pair well with dog-friendly outdoor seating just blocks from the university itself.

Rothrock State Forest is a must-see destination if your dog is made for endurance. You could easily spend days camping and hiking the beautiful trails, but you don’t have to spend that long to have a great experience. There are many trails to choose from, and just an hour can get you and your dog a good workout and beautiful views of nature. Dogs have to stay leashed in the park, and should stay alert, as bikers and hikers use the same trails! Rothrock State Forest is totally woof-th the trip!
