For local in-home manners ("obedience") training, try Sheila Williams Dog Training or Knox Canine Training. Canine Craze in Urbandale and Knox Canine Training in northeast Des Moines offer group classes for puppies and adult dogs. The Animal Rescue League of Iowa also runs group classes for puppies, adolescents, and adult dogs in northeast Des Moines. All use positive reinforcement training.
