Take a walk. This is the perfect season to enjoy some fresh air and get outdoors. Take your pet with you to designated areas and trails at Pine Grove Furnace State Park, Colonel Denning State Park, Kings Gap Environmental Education Center and Michaux State Forest. You and your pet can also step back in time on the Army Heritage Trail and view full-scale military exhibits along this one-mile interactive outdoor loop.
Let loose. There are an assortment of community parks in Cumberland Valley that allow you to unleash your dog and let them run around and unwind. Lower Allen Community Park in Mechanicsburg features a Dog Park where dogs can run and play off-leash. Shaffer Park in Carlisle and the Shippensburg Township Dog Park also offer large areas for pets to play unleashed. Registration is required.
Pamper your pet. Show your favorite friend some love by grabbing them a specialty dog treat at Doggie Delights at the West Shore Farmers Market in Lemoyne. Pets can also relax at the A Paw Above Pet Salon & Doggie Spa in Carlisle.
