    “It's all about the fur babies big and small!”

    My name is Penny Merta.  My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion! As a pet lover myself I understand the difficulty of finding someone who will care for your pets and respect your home. All pets are unique and deserve undivided attention.If you have a bored pooch and need daily dog walks, I will be there. I will not only treat your pets like my own, but I will ensure they are in good hands!

    “Caring and reliable dog whisperer”

    I am a lover of dogs and enjoy keeping them healthy and happy through exercise and play. Being a dog owner the last 14 years has kept me active in Johnston on the sidewalks and trails. I want to help pet parents who may not have the time or energy to walk their own dog(s) or are going to be away from home. Experienced with dogs from xsmall to xxxl. By day I have a professional career that requires responsibility and organization while interacting with government officials across the US.

    “Who runs the world? Dogs.”

    Hi all! My name is Laura and I’m currently a student at a local college here in Des Moines. I decided to give Wag! a try as it is something that can fit into my busy schedule, while keeping me active at the same time. I grew up around dogs, and I’ve always loved having the pups around :) I look forward to meeting and building a bond with your furry best friend!

    Hi, I'm Dakota! I've grown up with a yorkichon, boxer, and pitbull, named Rowdy, Saxon, and Odin! I've been caring for family, friends, and my own animals my entire life. I love the challenge of getting to know new dogs, and making every experience loving and memorable for each pet. No dog is too big or too small for me, and I believe every breed is beautiful! When I'm not dancing, I'm hiking and exploring, so I can't wait to share some outdoor time with your pet!

    I'm an animal enthusiast that loves dogs! I've been working with all sorts of animals since 2012 when I started volunteering for the Animal Rescue League of Iowa. I've also been working at a boarding facility in Waukee, IA since 2013. I don't have any dogs myself (I actually have two cats), but I have worked with hundreds (if not thousands) of dogs throughout the past several years. I also do dog training as a little side hustle of mine.
