Any trainers or clubs in Iowa?

I live about a hour away from the quad cities / davenport area. Just wondering whats out there, driving 3+ hours to chicago can really wear on a family.

Re: Any trainers or clubs in Iowa?

ScH or Ring? There is a ScH club near Cedar Rapids, which is roughly an hour and a half from Davenport if I remember right. http://www.freewebs.com/cedarvalleyworkingdogs/ Don't know anything about them though other than what is on their website.

The only other one is in the Fort Dodge/Boone area, which might be quite a drive for you as well?

Machtig Strom Schutzhund Verein (Al Govednik's club) is in Moline. They are hosting GSD nationals next month. There are other clubs in Iowa as you go west (including ours in the Cedar Rapids area) but it sounds like you are closer to the Quad Cities. I'd be happy to provide links to other IA clubs if need be.
