    “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!

    “Who runs the world? Dogs.”

    Hi all! My name is Laura and I’m currently a student at a local college here in Des Moines. I decided to give Wag! a try as it is something that can fit into my busy schedule, while keeping me active at the same time. I grew up around dogs, and I’ve always loved having the pups around :) I look forward to meeting and building a bond with your furry best friend!

    If you are looking for a barktastic adventure like no other, you should take a 30-minute car ride over to High Trestle Trail. Rails-to-Trails have absolutely outdone themselves on this one. They have turned an old rail trestle bridge into a walking path. You can see the entire area from these heights. You will definitely need to keep your dog on a leash for this adventure. The trail is open all hours and is usually pretty busy. This means that, besides exercise and great view, you will meet some new friends along the way!

    The McVay Trail has been adopted by the Rails-to-Trails system. It is a place of history dating back to 1851.  They have taken the railbed and lined it with asphalt so that it can be used for cycling, walking, and hiking. Your pup will love that there are tons of trees to sniff and bark at. You’ll love the feeling of walking through history. The original trestles are kept and incorporated as part of the trail system. It is more than just a great place to be active; it is also a great way to get around the area.

    Want to take your best pal out for a meal? Head into downtown Des Moines, just half an hour from Runnells. The RoCA is a tapas bar that is located right on Court Ave. The sizes are just pawfect for a quick snack or for getting a sample of what they have to offer. Some of it is quite spicy, so make sure to find something suitable for Fido. You can join your pup right on the patio for a casual evening with friends or family. RoCA’s signature tapas and full meal dishes are just the thing to sate your hunger. There are mixed drinks with a signature flair as well.

    Take a 30-minute car ride from Runnells and drive into history. The Chichaqua Valley Trail was originally laid as a railway in 1885. Rails-to-Trails laid asphalt along this 27-mile trail so that it could be used by the community while still preserving its history. The trail runs along Skunk Creek and the natural onion fields of Iowa. You will see beautiful farmland as you cross the country side. Enjoy the trail and explore a little more each time through multiple entrances that stretch across several cities. There is nothing better exploring natural history with your best fur-iend by your side!
