Pals for Paws is a family-owned and operated business owned by Aaron and Rebecca Dirks, both graduates of the University of Iowa class of 2007. In addition to the two of us, we have a team of four regular dog walkers, most UI students, who walk between 6-10 dogs each day, and alternate pet care on the weekends. Every walker is insured through Pet Sitters International and has references available on request.
