Booking the Property and Barn

Swamp Dog Farm is proud to host a number of Events including Hunt Tests, Field Trials, Club Training Days, Barn Hunts, Obedience Matches etc.  If you wish to book the Grounds or Barn contact us by email for available dates and event contracts.   A copy of club insurance must be available, listing the property as "additional insured".   For classes and Training Days the same rules apply as Retriever Training.   


  1. Before training everyone must sign a current 2021 Swamp Dog Farm Waiver (available in Barn and on website, leave signed copy in binder.)

  2. The farm is open for Training or Club Events only.  Being a member of a local club (listed below) meets our insurance requirements.   For safety reasons all dogs must be kept on leash and / or under control when not working.  No fun off leash walks / runs permitted.  Please air dogs individually and in designated areas during Events or Club training days.  

  3. Poop and scoop is mandatory.  Garbage bin located by barn. 

  4. No bird disposal on the property.

  5. Please make sure to pick up all your training gear, flags & tape.  Farmer's will appreciate.  

  6. No Driving in Fields unless it is a clearly marked seasonal road in the summer to access a training area.  In the wet season keep all wheels on the gravel.  If you make a rut, please fix it! 

  7. Leave access for farm vehicles to areas including across bridge when parking.  

  8. Have a training plan and have FUN training!


No overnight camping on the property (exception may be given to event judges if the club insurance covers dry camping on the grounds).  Bookings do not include Training Area #6 (Trailer Ponds).
