  • $10 Per Dog or $5 Per Puppy under 6 months for All Training Areas except Barn & T7 Barn Field. 

  • $5 Per Dog or Free for Puppy under 6 months for Barn & Barn Field T7.                  

  • The Barn & Barn Field T7 have a separate "per dog" training fee from other areas due to cost of maintenance.  We hope trainers will take advantage the low fee and the fact they are safe and well maintained.  Both are great for training drills and obedience.
