COVID-19 Announcement

Given the current state with Covid-19 infections in our area of the state, the 4RK9's Board has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel ALL classes for the foreseeable future. Until the state determines that public events can once again resume, we need to follow the current mediation practices. Please watch our website for updates as they occur. The board will be monitoring this issue and provide members and the public timely, up-to-date information as it becomes available.

We appreciate your understanding and support throughout this process and will return to offering fun and exciting opportunities to you and your furry friends as soon as possible.

Welcome to 4RK9s Dog Training Club!

4RK9s Dog Training Club is located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Our philosophy of training is built around positive training through trainer enthusiasm, use of treats, toys, and lavish praise.

We offer classes in:

  • Competition Obedience (Novice - UD)
  • Competition Agility (Novice - Excellent; Standard and Jumpers)
  • Nosework

We are a UKC Club (United Kennel Club), a NADAC Club (North American Dog Agility Council), and recently became a CPE Club (Canine Performance Events). Our agility and obedience classes are taught in UKC, NADAC, AKC (American Kennel Club) and CPE formats. We have members who have UKC, NADAC, AKC and CPE titles.

Our club operates on a volunteer basis and is not open to the general public with the exception of classes, fun matches, and seminars.
