    “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.

    “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!

    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.
