“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'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.

I have lived with dogs all my life and they will always have a special place in my heart! My family has owned all kinds of dogs, and I haven't met a dog I didn't like. My love for dogs extends even to those I meet for the first time regardless of their size or temperament. Right now I don't have a dog of my own, so I am ready to give your dog all of my attention and eagerly look forward to our walks!

Dog Walking in Alleman

Alleman, Iowa is a tiny town that is not very well-known. Part of the reason for that is it has only been a city since the 1970s! The town is best known for its grain storage. The area is perfect for a quiet getaway because everyone seems to know everyone here. This is a welcoming community that has that small town feel.

Every holiday and event is marked by a celebration at the city's center. This is a great place to meet and greet others in the area. This town is home to a lot of veterans, who you're sure to get acquainted with if you spend any time here. Feel free to walk the quaint streets of the town with your leashed pup in tow, and, if you are interested, you could hear some engaging stories from just about anyone you meet.

Because it's so small, there aren't a lot of dog-friendly activities here. You'll find more in Ankeny, the closest city to Alleman. You could make the quick ten-mile trip over and bring your dog to Sunrise Park. Here, you will find trails to walk that will engage both you and your pup. You will need to bring your own water and poop bags, but it is well worth the visit. But whether you decide to venture out or stay in town, this is a nice, quiet place for you and Fido to stretch your legs.

Fifteen miles from Alleman is Chichaqua Valley Trail, which was a former rail line converted into a walking path. This is a 23-mile trail system that will take you and your dog over some barktastic views. You will cross small bridges that have been preserved by the Rails-to-Trails system. You will need to bring your own water because there is no running water available on the trail. You are sure to see some wildlife along the way, too. Please remember that this is a natural area and you will need to keep your dog on his leash while you enjoy it.

If you are willing to drive just fifteen miles, you can come and visit Iowa Arboretum. This is a public garden area with multiple trails throughout it. You and your pup can wind your way through the blooms for as long as you want, as long as you keep your pup on his leash. There are poop bags and trash cans which are replenished and changed regularly. You will need to bring your own water and water dish, though. There is no better way than to spend the day with your family than this! Bring your camera, because you never know what you'll see or who you'll meet!

Imagine taking a walk with your pet and coming through the trees to see a breathtaking the view of 130 feet down. That is what it is like to view the High Trestle Trail. This is a trail that is open 24 hours a day. You should not skip the opportunity to see this bridge at night! It is lit up by diamond-shaped lights to represent its past as part of the coal mining days. You will need to bring water and poop bags when you come to visit, but that's a small price to pay for such an incredible view. Please keep your dog on his leash and close to you.

Ankeny Dog Park is right in the heart of it all. You can bring your dog here to play with new friends as much as you would like. Everyone needs a chance to be themselves, and this park provides your dog with the pawfect opportunity to get off of his leash and be himself. Drinking water and cleaning stations are provided, so you don't have to bring anything, apart from your sense of adventure. You can relax on the sidelines and chat with other pet owners. Please do not bring small children to play here, though. It is recommended that you leave the treats and toys at home, especially if your pup isn't used to sharing.

At less than twenty minutes away, Ames Dog Park is a barktastic way to get your dog out of the house and ready for an adventure. You will find that there are 10 full acres to play in. Smaller dogs even have their own area. This park was created by the animal shelter so that everyone would have somewhere safe to play.  You'll need to pay a fee to acquire a permit to use this park, but all of it goes to help the animal shelter. You will also need to provide proof of vaccination. The park provides water and poop bags for your use. What are you waiting for? Come and let Fido play without his leash for awhile!
