“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!

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!
