Classes starting January 1, 2017 have moved to our Canine Sports Park. We are currently under construction and classes initially will be held in our home.
What you need to know is our property is an off the grid homestead and Canine Sports Park (Agility, Dock Diving, Herding and Search & Rescue Training) currently under construction. As construction is underway, you may see open/studded walls, insulation, construction lights and a basic concrete floor. For winter classes we heat with wood and do our best to keep the temperature around 70 degrees. We do not have an internet connection but your phones and mobile data should work well in our home.
Once you arrive our home is a 1/3 mile off of Pine Street, primarily up hill on a gravel driveway. I recommend dressing as if you we were visiting a farm.
With all that said you may also enjoy meeting some of our 2 or 4 legged friends, 6 Nigerian goats, our 4 loved Aussies, 2 cats, 9 Indian Runner ducks, a Guinea hen, and many Jersey Black Giant Hens and Red Bourbon turkeys. Coming in the spring pf 2017 2 pigs and some sheep. And you will also have the advantage of seeing some of the first aid supplies and nutrients I use for my own pets.
Classes are rarely if ever cancelled and I have taught classes for only one person. If I have only 1 registrant for a class I will let you know and give you the option of attending the scheduled class or a future class.
Please feel free to call with any questions.
