Open Training Days

If you are not familiar with the Training Areas (includes Barn) at SDF, where you can train, drive, park and set up - please visit the Training Area Page with Map.
Reserve Training Areas - 30 min to 30 days in advance, details are below.
Day of Training "drop in" will not be used anymore. Please use the online booking system which allows you to book 30 min in advance.
To make it fair to everyone - You and your group may only reserve 2 training areas at a time to a maximum of 4 per day.
Day of Training: IF you arrive and training areas or extra time is still available you may extend areas or add extra time by using the online reservation system.
*Daily Fee Schedule for ALL Training Areas - $5 Per Person PLUS
$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.
Per Person and Dog Training Fee(s) are usually included in club training days hosted at SDF and might be included with some classes. Please check with your instructor.
Per Person and Dog Training Fees are not included in all day events such as seminars, workshops, trials or tests unless specified in the premium list. If the property is open for training and you want to train before or after events the Per Person Fee and Dog Training Fee(s) will apply.
*Per Person Fee & Dog Training Fee(s) are charged ONCE daily. (Even if you leave the property and come back)
