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:
- Home Obedience
- Competition Obedience (Novice - UD)
- Competition Agility (Novice - Excellent; Standard and Jumpers)
- Canine Good Citizen (Classes and Testing)
- Just-for-Fun Agility
- Getting Ready to Track

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.
