About us

Dog Sports at Kim’s is a community of individuals who enjoy coming together to train their dogs. We offer classes in Obedience, Agility, Rally, and puppy training. Some of us have been training dogs for decades, while others are relative newcomers. And while most of us aim to compete with our dogs, others simply want a well-behaved family pet. Whatever your goals may be, you’ll find a rich, energetic program that both you and your dog will love. 


Here’s what you’ll find at Dog Sports at Kim’s:


•     Competitive obedience and rally

•     Basic pet obedience/Canine Good Citizen

•     Purebred and mixed-breed dogs

•     Rescue dogs a specialty

•     Puppy classes

Who we are


Kim Berkley, our lead trainer, brings impeccable credentials to her work, having trained many dogs – including her own – to competitive championships. Kim keeps class sizes small to make sure each 

dog-handler team gets targeted, individualized instruction. Also, unlike most training programs, DSK classes are tailored for a minimum of 

stand-around-and-wait time. 


Our other trainers include April Adams, Nancy Curtis, Jeannine Kerr, Joanne Bockhorn, Morgan Kramer, Patty Schneiderjohn, Cindy Simpson, and Christina Ward. 

Nancy Curtis also provides administrative and training support at DSK. 

The walls at DSK are covered with banners congratulating DSK Dogs and their owners for winning such coveted titles as Obedience Trial Champion (OTCH), Master Agility Champion (MACH), Preferred Agility Excellent (PAX), and more. DSK Dog members range in experience from beginners to OTCH/MACH handlers, and veteran handlers mingle freely with 

beginners, offering experience and guidance. 

DSK is also home to the Mound City Obedience Training Club and serves as practice facility for the Greater St. Louis Agility Club. 


In short, Dog Sports at Kim’s has something for everyone.

Our facility
