    “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!

    “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!

    “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!

    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.

    Hi, I’m Cedric and I am a substitute teacher/chef who is looking to spend my spare time helping you out, and bringing a little joy into the lives of your four-legged friends. I used to work at an animal shelter, and am skilled at handling and caring for your pets. Over the years, I have been the proud parent of 3 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats. My pets have always been the center of my universe, and you will be very happy with my work.

    Des Moines

    Although Des Moines is one of the largest cities in the great state of Iowa, it is home to only one dog park, the Raccoon River Dog Park. Located only fourteen miles from Summerset, the drive should only take you about half an hour at most. But trust us, the drive is truly worth it! Racoon River Park is approximately twelve acres in size and completely fenced in, so you can feel free to leave the leash at home. It is also separated into areas depending on dog size, so if your dog is small or shy, you don’t have to force them to socialize with big, rambunctious dogs.

    Situated approximately half an hour from the city of Summerset is Ankeny, Iowa. It is home to only one dog park, Ankeny Dog Park. This park is nearly eight acres in size and completely fenced in. It also has many water fountains on its property as well as a biodegradable waste station for doggie poop. Although this park is pretty new in the area, it is loved by locals already because of its lush green grass and open spaces. When you’re done playing at the park, head to the High Trestle Trail. Although the trail is not off-leash, it welcomes all dogs.

    Although Ames is a bit of a drive from Summerset because it is located approximately fifty miles away, it is well worth the drive. Your drive will take you through the city of Des Moines where there is one dog park. Ames is also home to one dog park, the Ames Dog Park. This park has everything you could ask for in a dog park. It is approximately ten acres in size and split up into zones depending on dog size. The park is very strict about usage and requires all dog owners to provide vaccination certification before they are given a permit tag for the park.

    Located only twenty miles from Summerset is the city of Altoona. This quiet, peaceful city does not have any off-leash dog parks, but it is home to the Gay Lea Wilson Trail/4-Mile Creek Greenway Trail. This trail is not off-leash, but welcomes all leashed dogs. It is one of approximately 1,600 railway trails preserved by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy because of its historical significance. Since this is not an off-leash dog park it would behoove you to take your own water, doggie poop bags and toys. And remember to keep your furry four-legged companion on a leash at all times!

    If you drive a mere twenty-five miles from your home in Summerset, you will find yourself in Runnels. This sleepy town is home to a very interesting doggie paradise -- Rover’s Ranch. Rover’s Ranch is primarily a dog boarding facility that also has a very large, completely fenced-in dog park. The park is complete with water pools, trees and toys! However, you mutts remember this is a boarding facility first so you will be expected to pay a small fee to use the park. But trust us, even though you will have to pay, you can rest easy knowing there are always professionals around to help, and all the dogs have been vaccinated.
