Class Descriptions and Schedule

The Dogs' Spot offers a very flexible class format that allows people to attend classes as their schedule permits. Dog and handler teams can start classes when it is convenient for them and advance at their own pace. Attendance in a Behavior and Training 101 orientation class is required prior to participating in Kindergarten Puppy or Beginning Family Manners classes. Kindergarten Puppy graduates and everyone new to our program will start in the Beginning Family Manners class, however, they may request to test to the next level at the end of the class.

Upon completion of the Behavior and Training 101 class, participants may purchase punch cards for 4, 8, or 12 classes.
A single class may be attended for $20. The cost of the punch cards and their associated expiration dates are as follows:

        4 classes - $80 with an expiration date of 2 months from the date of purchase

        8 classes - $140 with an expiration date of 4 months from the date of purchase

        12 classes - $185 with an expiration date of 6 months from the date of purchase

The cards must be presented at the beginning of class and may be used until their expiration date or until all classes are attended and the card is surrendered, whichever comes first. Lost cards are not replaced and refunds are not given. Altered cards are rendered invalid. All participants must sign up for the class they plan to attend in advance so that small class size can be maintained. Reservations can be made by signing up in class or contacting The Dogs' Spot either by phone or email. At least 24 hours notice is required to cancel a class reservation. Cancellations made with less than 24 hours will be charged as if attended. Classes offered in this format are Kindergarten Puppy, all Family Manners classes, Novice Competition Agility, Pupourri, and Doga.

All classes are taught under the direction of a Certified Pet Dog Trainer. To register for classes call 816-436-SPOT (7768) or download the registration form and mail it with your payment to: The Dogs' Spot - Dog Training Center, P.O. Box 28263, Gladstone, MO 64118.

  • Classes meet for an hour weekly, unless otherwise specified, and are offered evenings and weekends,
    for your convenience.
  • Because classes are small in size, pre-registration is required and fees are not refundable after classes have started.
  • Please feel free to come by and observe a class prior to registering so that you can be sure that The Dogs’ Spot is the right place for you to train your dog.
  • All dogs need to be up-to-date on their rabies and parvovirus vaccinations, except puppies who have not completed their vaccination series, yet. Please provide a copy of the vaccination records at registration.
  • Storm cancellations are announced via voicemail by calling 816-436-SPOT (7768) an hour before the start of class.
