“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.

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.

A bit over thirty minutes northeast of Conger, you’ll find downtown West Des Moines, where there’s plenty of pawesome things to do with your dog! Some local businesses are dog-friendly, and they often have goodies for your four-legged pal. If you want to skip the shopping and get straight to the good part, make sure you check out Raccoon River Dog Park. As if dog parks aren’t fun enough, this one is huge; it’s a massive twelve acres, and it’s all fenced in so that your pet can have some fun off his leash. Make note that you’ll need a permit to use this park, so you’ll want to get that sorted out. Waste disposal bags are not provided.

Your dog loves two things: walking and you! And if you want to let him have the best of both worlds, visit South Des Moines! A little more than thirty minutes from Conger, you’ll find an access point for the Des Moines Trail. Des Moines Trail is great for everyone, as it’s pretty flat. You’ll get the opportunity to see some cool local wildlife, but because of that, Fido will need to stay on his leash at all times. There’s plentiful parking, and you can purchase water and snacks at the vending machines on site. Make sure to bring some waste bags, though.

About twenty minutes east of Conger is the town of Indianola, and downtown, you’ll find an access point to three separate trails: the McVay Trail, the Jerry Kelley Trail, and the Summerset Trail. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, these trails will be perfect for you and your dog to get in some exercise. Don’t leave the leash at home, though; one is required, and it must be shorter than six feet in length so that your pooch stays close. It’s recommended to bring water, and you’ll need some waste baggies, too.

A little over twenty minutes north of Conger is East Village, a popular little neighborhood in Des Moines. In East Village, there’s always something for you and Fido to get into! If you’re looking to chow down on some delicious food, try Scenic Route Bakery. This bakery serves up delicious classic deli fare, such as soups and sandwiches. If the weather’s nice, you can sit on the patio with Fido. Once you’re done eating, make sure you check out the farmers’ market. Open on most Saturdays, you can buy fresh produce, support the local economy, and have fun with your pooch all at once! Make sure to bring along a leash and some baggies.

If you and Fido enjoy walking and want even more places to explore, head forty-five minutes north to Altoona, home to The Gay Lea Wilson Trail. The only question is: How much can you handle? The Gay Lea Wilson Trail is over twenty miles long, and it’s known for how beautiful it is in summer and autumn. This trail is pretty flat, so whether you’re new to hiking or a professional, you can handle it. Your dog must stay on his leash, and you’ll need to bring your own water and waste disposal bags.
