“Happiness is time spent with a great dog!”

Hi! I absolutely adore dogs and would love to meet yours! I’ve had a dog by my side since birth. We’ve owned Cocker Spaniels, Pekingese, Akitas, Rottweilers, a Blue Heeler and an American Eskimo. I have lots of personal experience with many different breeds, sizes and fur types. I think a dog is truly a family member and should be treated as such. Every family is different so I’m happy to do whatever is best for your furry family member.

My name is Kate Bouwer and I have spent my whole life with dogs around me. I cannot imagine life without them. I so enjoy being outdoors and dogs are the perfect companion while taking in natures wonders. I currently have two dogs of my own and am fostering another while we find her forever home. I am so excited to be part of the Wag team.

Platte Falls Conservation Area in Platte City is a spectacular 2,366-acre area where you can bring your pup for a trail walk through the woods and along the nine miles of river running through the park. This is a diverse landscape, covering both marshland and forest, and there is always plenty of wildlife to spot, including otters, ducks and rabbits. For this reason, keep your pup leashed for his safety and that of the local fauna. The river offers many aquatic activities as well, and your water pup will love a little float down the river on board a canoe or boat with you! There is plenty of parking and restroom facilities here, but bring everything you need for the day, such as water, food, cleanup bags, bug spray and sunscreen.

For the serious walkers, there is a 5k grass cross country trail with mileage markers every half mile to really get those legs moving. Fishing is permitted in the pond, and a playground will keep the kids occupied as well. Dogs are permitted here, but keep your pet leashed at Platte Ridge Park and always clean up any mess he leaves behind.

The dog park has separate areas for big and little dogs, benches for you to sit at, waste disposal facilities and a doggie water fountain. Outside the dog park, your pup will need to go back on the lead, but there is so much to see. Eight trails offer scenic views of the forest and Missouri River, varying in difficulty from the easy 0.2 mile Bear Creek Trail, to the more rugged 1.25-mile West Ridge Trail. For a challenge, take on the much longer 3.25 Mile Weston Bluffs Trail. Picnic areas are dotted throughout the park for when you are both ready for a little rest.
