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.

“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.

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 Cambridge

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.

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!
