    “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!

    “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.

    My name is Dala (pronounced Day-la). I have been walking/sitting dogs for three years now and full time for two years. I absolutely love dogs and to be outdoor exercising. Whether your dog just wants company while enjoying the outdoors during the day while you’re at work or they’re trying to get back into shape I would love to be the one that accompanies them!

    “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.

    About 20 minutes west of the town of Avon is downtown West Des Moines – what a mouthful! Downtown, you’ll find a few little businesses that are dog-friendly, but the most fun you’ll have will be at Raccoon River Dog Park. This dog park, which locals hail for how large it is – nearly 12 acres! – is off-leash and completely fenced in, allowing your dog to run around in safety. A permit is required to use the park, so make sure you have everything sorted before you go. You’ll also want to remember to bring along some waste disposal bags, as none are provided.

    If you and Fido are looking for another new place to explore during a walk, head to South Des Moines! About 15 minutes from Avon, you’ll find an access point for the Des Moines Trail, and the only question is: Who will enjoy it more, you or your dog? Make sure to bring along a camera, as locals say the views are gorgeous. Fido must remain on a leash at all times, which is for his own good; local wildlife loves exploring the trail just as much as your dog will. Parking and vending machines are available, so grab some water for you and your pup, and get moving!

    About 20 minutes south of Avon, in the town of Indianola, you’ll find an access point to not one but three separate trails: the Jerry Kelley Trail, the McVay Trail, and the Summerset Trail. What dog doesn’t love going for a walk? In Indianola, you can have your pick. Your dog is allowed to join you on any of these trails, but you will need to bring along a leash. One is required, and it must be no longer than 6 feet in length. You’ll need to bring along your own water and waste disposal bags, though, as none are provided on the trails. Get out and get exploring!

    A little over 15 minutes northwest of Avon is Des Moines’s East Village neighborhood, where you and your best four-legged pal will find plenty to do together. If you’re looking for something to do during the weekend, head over to the farmers’ market. Open on most Saturdays, you can support local farmers, buy fresh produce, and have fun with your pooch all at once! After you’re done shopping, head over to Scenic Route Bakery. This bakery serves up delicious sandwiches, salads, and more. Your dog can join you at an outdoor table. A leash is required at both locations.

    Twenty minutes north of Avon is the city of Altoona, which has an access point to The Gay Lea Wilson Trail. This popular trail is a bit over 20 miles long, meaning you and your dog won’t run out of places to discover! This trail is known for its beautiful views; there are plenty of trees, so you can have a gorgeous, green view or a fiery, red view in autumn. As this trail is mostly flat, it’s fun for dogs and owners of all ages. Fido must remain on a leash at all times, and the trail doesn’t have any waste disposal bags, so you’ll want to bring along your own.
