Rover's Ranch mission is to provide a safe, fun environment where dogs can play, socialize, exercise and train off-leash; and to promote responsible dog ownership, thus enhancing the quality of life for dogs and their owners.
In the past 30 years dogs have gone from being a family accessory relegated to the back yard, to being an integral member of the family. Dog ownership is on the rise. With the growing number of households integrating dogs into their lives, the need is also on the rise for a conveniently located place where people can safely exercise and play with their dogs off-leash. That need is quite apparent in the Des Moines area.
