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

I want to socialize with other dog owners, who not only want to walk with their dogs for fun and exercise, but who also want to participate in activities in the community that benefit dogs.

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

My dog's name is Tiki and she is 15 years old. She is a beagle mix. I rescued Tiki from the AZ Beagle rescue group. She was 6 years old.

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

I walk in the late afternoon or early evening during the week. On the weekends, I will walk anytime of the day. During the summer I am more flexible and will walk almost anytime of the day other than the hottest part of the afternoon.

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

I usually measure my walks in minutes rather than by miles. Since my dog is 15 years old and slowing down, I usually time my walks for 1/2 hr-45 minutes.

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

Yes, she knows basic commands. However, she is a stubborn beagle, and she doesn't always perform unless I have a treat in my hand.


My name is Marianne. I live and work in West Des Moines. I have one dog named Tiki. I like to participate in activities where my dog is welcome and/or ones that benefit the dogs in our community.
