'Camp Gafke' Dog Training & the King's Pride
German Shepherd Dog Kennel
with Miste, Moss & Mither, our Border Collies
Our 27 acres, 3,200-square-foot dog training building, 15,900-square-foot, fenced training yard and our boarding kennel are dedicated exclusively to dog training and puppy training activities.
These acres are also home for King's Pride German Shepherd Dogs, a distinctive line of working, companion German Shepherds we have developed over the past 35 years.
We have a full array of obedience and agility dog training equipment. The building and grounds with its trails, ponds and outdoor dog training and puppy training areas are available to those who hold memberships in the dog training building. Here are the directions to get here.
Annual membership provides unlimited enrollment in dog training and puppy training classes for all dogs in the member's dog family. Members may also use the training building and grounds for unlimited practice except during scheduled classes. Members also may participate in member-only events and classes.
We operate a boarding kennel, primarily for the benefit of students in our various dog training and puppy training classes.
Ann Gafke has been training dogs for 50 years. For most of that time, she has been helping others train their dogs. Her program has won national recognition for 4H. The work of her students has been published by National Geographic in the book Dogs on Duty and in the book Pets and the Elderly. Her therapy work has been honored by Missouri mental health organizations.
The American Kennel Club used her German Shepherd Dogs in its educational slide show on the German Shepherd Standard to represent ideal shepherd temperament.
