Why do you want to join the West Des Moines Dog Walking Club?

I need to get my dogs out for walks more, and going with other people would help get me and the dogs out more often. Plus it's a great chance to make some new friends.

What kind of dog(s) do you have and what is/are their names?

Miniature dachshunds - Dylan, Willow, and Trace (dachshund/beagle/rat terrier mix).

What days and times do you like to walk with your dog(s)?

Evenings or weekends. I have classes on Thursday evenings. I usually take 1 or 2 dogs to the Des Moines downtown farmer's market on Saturday mornings.

What distance do you usually walk with your dog(s) and how often?

I usually go to Gray's Lake or just in my neighborhood. Gray's Lake is around 2.25 miles for the whole loop. I haven't been getting out on any regular basis lately. My dogs can go longer distances. In the past, we used to go for 4 mile walks sometimes.

Have you worked with your dog(s) on basic obedience training?

I've trained and shown the older dogs in obedience and agility and have already put some obedience and rally obedience titles on Dylan, but the two youngest (Willow and Trace) haven't had much training yet. They've been around other people and dogs though as I belong to the Des Moines Obedience Training Club and take them with me to shows.


I live in Des Moines but would love to get the dogs out for walks and socialize with others at the same time! I work at a computer 40 hours a week while the dogs are home so we could all use the exercise!
