    “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.

    “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!

    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.

    Windsor Heights is located eighteen miles east of De Soto. Windsor Heights Dog Park can be found at 6900 School Road. This is a fenced enclosure for a pup to find a pal to sniff and paw at. A small creek flows through the enclosure for a daring splash on a hot day. The ground, for most part, is covered in mulch. Some pups that decide to roll in it may need a quick once-over with the brush afterward, but the fun is worth it! This dog park has a few obstacle pieces to try out. Smaller dogs will find their own separate space for safer play. This dog park does not have water, so visitors take note to bring some for themselves (and some to share!). Picnic tables under shade trees give the human companions a place to congregate while their pups play.
