Rowdy Rovers

Help your dog make calm and polite choices using positive reinforcement techniques. 

Sometimes life can be way too exciting for our pups and when that happens they can forget all their manners. Rowdy Rovers is a four week class for dogs 5 months and older at the start of class. In this class we’ll help encourage our Rowdy Rovers to make polite choices as we work on the following and more:

  • Four on the floor
  • Leave it
  • Recall (come)
  • Counter Surfing
  • Waiting at the door

This class meets once a week for four weeks. Participants will be required to watch the orientation video prior to coming to the first class via the link below.

For any issues regarding the orientation video, please contact or call 515-473-9131. 

Items Needed

Standard flat collar and a 6 foot standard leash. Correctly fitted body-harnesses are also allowed. Pinch collars, head halters, electronic collars, or retractable leashes are not permitted. Small, bite-sized, treats in a pouch or bag.


There are no prerequisites to attend Rowdy Rovers.


This class is $175. Fees for classes are subject to change and are non-refundable. For more information about our refund policy, visit our Training Class FAQ page.

Does your dog consistently react strongly to humans or other dogs?

Reactive dogs have a hard time focusing on their owner during the class making it hard for them to learn and retain the information they are being taught. If you are unsure if your dog will be successful in a group training class, a Drop-In training class is a great way to see if your dog is able to learn in the busy environment our training center provides.

If you have any concerns about the behaviors your dog displays, please email or call (515) 473-9131.
