Face coverings, especially face masks, are required for everyone in the building.  The latest info from the CDC states that face masks are more effective than face shields at containing and reducing the spread of respiratory particles in the air.  See the CDC site for complete information.  Everyone must sign the COVID-19 waiver.

What we know:

  • The virus is very contagious

  • The virus spreads through the air

  • Many infected people show no symptoms and can spread the virus

  • An infected person wearing a mask or shield is less likely to infect others

  • Physical distance provides additional safety


The Board of Directors of GKCDTC thanks you for your cooperation in caring about the health and safety of everyone.

Training classes for Session 4 resumed the week of June 8 – 11.  There will be fewer classes.  All students must wear a mask and must sign the COVID-19 waiver. 

Face masks are required for everyone’s safety.  

No walk-in enrollments will be accepted.  No Drop-In classes are available for this session.

About Training Classes

Classes are for dogs and handlers to have fun with each other, whether your goal is pet manners or you plan to compete in obedience trials.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged, whether your dog is an All American or a dog registered with AKC.

Classes at GKCDTC are 6 weeks in length and a new session starts approximately every 8 weeks.  Each 6 week session costs $120 if you are not a member of the club or $80 for club members.  Classes are taught by our volunteer instructors who have shown and titled their own dog (or dogs!) to the equivalent level or higher than the class they are teaching.

All classes are held at the GKCDTC Training Building, 9911 E 63 St, Raytown MO.
