Hello, my name is Emily. I have a poodle mix of my own. I volunteered at the local animal shelter all through college where I learned how to deal with many different behavioral issues. I teach during the school year and love dog walking over the summers. I’m excited to meet your dog! Thank you for trusting me with your fur baby!

““Happy” Vally Explorer”

I’m waiting for the opportunity to get out and explore all that Happy Valley has to offer with your best friend. I love hikes in the woods and exploring new trails just as much as walking the neighborhood streets of State College. I love this town and would love to spend time getting to know your pets favorite street or park. I love making new 4-legged friends (they are the most faithful). I’m looking forward to meeting and becoming good friends with your companion.

Dog Walking in Tyrone

Back in the day, Tyrone was a bustling commercial town known for its paper product manufacturing. The population has dwindled since its peak in the mid-1900s, but the borough is still a cozy spot that more than 5,000 people call home. There’s one vet clinic here, but you’ll need to hop in the car and travel a bit to find restaurants and fun activities for your furry friend.

Tyrone is located near several state parks and game lands, so finding something to do if you love the outdoors shouldn’t be too difficult. There’s relatively quick access to several trails, like the Houtzdale Line Trail, which is only about 18 miles from Tyrone. This 10-mile path will take you through some of the areas where railways were used consistently in the 1800s and 1900s and offers some great spots for wildlife watching.

Only eight miles from Tyrone is Bellwood, where you’ll find the Bell’s Gap Rail Trail, a six-mile path that will give more experienced hikers and their dogs a challenging walk through woods and valleys with some incredible views. If you love spending time outside with your dog, then Tyrone’s surrounding areas have some furtastic spots for you!
