“Experienced with training and patient dog lover!”

I’ve been a lifelong dog lover, but my dedication to pups doesn’t just end there! I have over 14+ years of experience as a dog owner or handler. I wouldn’t trade a second of it for anything! I’ve learned so much in the process, and getting to bring happiness to loving pups is always such an amazing experience.

“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!

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.

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'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.

Dog Walking in Adelphi

Adelphi is a tiny community just below central Iowa; other than four vet clinics within a twenty-minute drive of the town, the area is mostly without dog-friendly amenities. However, due to Adelphi’s close proximity to large cities like Des Moines, it’s a rustic but certainly not alienated community.

If you make a quick fifteen-mile drive up to the outskirts of Des Moines, you and your furry friend will be rewarded with the Ewing Dog Park. This park is mostly for locals, though, not just those passing through: you need a pass to enter the park. However, the exclusivity of this park keeps it squeaky clean and without crowds. The park is open every day of the year from 6:00 am until sundown. One acre of the space is fenced off exclusively for small dogs, so fear not if you have a pint-sized pooch!

If you’re not a resident, drive a few minutes more and you’ll hit Riverwalk Dog Park in the heart of Des Moines. This fenced-in park is open to the public without a pass and offers picnic tables and a shaded pavilion. Just make sure you bring water for Fido -- the park does not have water fountains.

Adelphi is a wonderful community -- particularly for shy, country-loving pups. Adelphi is far enough from the hustle and bustle of Iowa’s capital city to offer true serenity, but close enough that Fido doesn’t miss out on central Iowa’s many dog-friendly parks and restaurants!
