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.
