On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

Based on the American Kennel Club® S.T.A.R Puppy® program, the goal of this course is to teach both owners and puppies effective behaviors for building a lasting relationship through obedience training. Some of the commands covered in this course include: walking nicely on a leash, sit, come, down, and stay. This class culminates with the AKC® S.T.A.R. Puppy® test. Successful completion of this course, or Dog Obedience I, is required to enroll in Obedience II and Agility courses and is seen as a good pre-requisite for those hoping to obtain a Canine Good Citizen® certification. Exceptional puppies will be able to test for the Canine Good Citizen® title after completion of this course. 

  • Registration is required prior to the class start date. If you have questions or would like to register, please visit www.kirkwood.edu/ce or contact 319-398-1022.
