“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.

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!

Dog Walking in Madrid

Madrid is a moderately sized town in the middle of Iowa. With three veterinary clinics in the area, one of which only does house calls, your pup will be well taken care off. The hours are 9AM to 5PM and they are all closed on Saturday and Sunday.

If you are looking for a place for you and your pooch to stretch all six of your legs, look no fur-ther than Raccoon River Valley Trail! This trail is a solid 89 miles of asphalt and concrete trails with multiple loops, and there’s a trailhead right in town. A converted railway line, the original railroad was built in the 1870s to carry rail traffic between Des Moines and the Great Lakes region. Note that using the trail requires a $2 daily fee for individuals age 18 and older.

While Madrid doesn't boast any dog-friendly restaurants, you'll find some about 30 miles away in Des Moines. Gazali’s is a Mediterranean counter-serve eatery serving up excellent gyros and other Middle Eastern specialties. They also feature a handful of dog-friendly outdoor tables!

RoCA, which stands for Restaurant on Court Avenue, is a trendy spot for American-style tapas, cocktails, and more. You can bring the whole family along to the dog-friendly outdoor seating, and be sure to try the cheeseboard!
