I have 3 dogs of my own and I love caring for my friend’s dogs when they go out of town. I work from home so I’m readily available at a moment’s notice. I love taking pups for walks and playing fetch with them to get them tired. I have my own car so I can travel to you.

Hi! I’m Rachael! Growing up, I’ve always had dogs, ranging from small to medium/large. I signed up for Wag because I can’t have a dog in my apartment, but I need a little more pup time in my life! I’m looking forward to meeting new dogs and spending time getting us both exercise! When I’m not walking for Wag, I enjoy reading, traveling, and trying new things.

The small town of Cambridge, Iowa is the go-to place for learning. The city came to life because it offered higher learning at a time when it wasn't possible to go online and learn anything your heart desired. Those who flocked here in the early days were making an investment in their community and mental well-being. Those who took a scholarly role were often admired and respected among every community, whether they returned to their home or continued to stay at Cambridge.
Modern-day Cambridge is still a place of learning. The town has taken the time to cultivate its history and focus it in a way that would move forward into the future. The historical society has highlighted these steps since the early 2000s. But this town isn't just for the braniac humans; you and your dog will love all the green space here. This is a town that's meant to be walked, since it works so hard to preserve its natural beauty. You should make it a point to check out The Heart of Iowa nature trail and see the beautiful countryside with your pet. For great tips on where to get started, there are three vets in town to guide you.
For something a little more adult, go visit the Cellar Winery. You could schedule a Fido-friendly wine tasting! With so much to see and do, be sure that you check out the town's website so you don't miss out on any of the action.
If you are a dog owner in Cambridge, then you will be excited to know that in less than a half hour you can get to Open Flame Steak and Lounge. If you and your best fur-iend are meat lovers, this restaurant should be your prime destination! The steaks will melt in your mouth. Oh, and you can bring your dog with you to enjoy this mouth-watering menu. Their entire outdoor patio is set up just for you and your pup. You could grab lunch or dinner specials that are constantly changing. This is going to be your new favorite place!
The Iowa Arboretum is an outdoor nature area that allows you to bring your dog for the day. You can walk along the trails that go throughout the park as you take in the natural flowers. You are required to keep your pup on a leash while you are exploring. There is a gift shop that does have water, but you are probably going to want to bring some of your own. The park is constantly in bloom with seasonal flowers. You can check the website for events that are both pet-friendly and family-friendly. The park does supply poop bags throughout the park. This pawesome experience is only 18 miles from Cambridge!
Does your pal need to stretch his legs? Take him to Ankeny Dog Park, a spacious park of a little over 7 acres. This dog park is only about 15 miles from Cambridge, which is just close enough that you can visit anytime you want! You will have everything that you and your pup need while you are here. There is even a pond for your pup to splash around in! Don't worry about poop bags or water; both are supplied here. There are plenty of shady spots to relax in and watch your pup play with his new fur buddies. Don't forget to pack towels if you want to let your fur baby swim!
Rails-to-Trails is a wonderful consevation effort that has made great strides in making use of the outdated rail system. The trail that runs through Polk City is called The High Trestle Rail. It's only about eighteen miles from you. They call it High Trestle because, along the trail, you'll find a 130-foot high trestle! It is a standing reminder of the coal line that brought life to this area. You are required to keep your pup on a leash while you take this hike, though. Be sure to visit it at night to take in the 43 diamond-shaped and LED-lined ribs. As you take a look around, just remember that this is exactly the view that you would have seen if you rode the rail line in the '20s!
It's time to grab a leash and take your dog to Ames Dog Park! This is a park created by the local animal shelter. The goal was to have a furtastic place for your pet to play safely. This park has all the necessary amenities you'd expect from a pawesome dog park, including poop bags, plenty of water for your pal, and even a water fountain for you. There is a fee to use this park, though, and you have to register. There are options to pay by day or year. The proceeds always to go to help the animal shelter. The registration process is in place to ensure that all the dog park users are safe and sound while playing.
