PAWS Practice Program

The PAWS Practice Program is available to ACTIVE PAWS students.  (Active means that the student/dog are currently coming to a Level 3, 4, 5, or 6 Agility Class on a weekly basis.)

  • Please check the PAWS calendar for availability.
  • Plan to use the field when there are no private lessons or specialty classes scheduled.
  • No reservations are needed, so you can come out whenever the field is available. This means you may not be the only one at the training site; others may be practicing as well.  If you’d prefer to have the field to yourself, please contact Debbie to hold space on the PAWS calendar.
  • The earliest time available for practice is 7:00 a.m.  Lights should be turned off by 10:00 p.m.  Note: The light switches are in the gray breaker box inside the shed, on the right wall. They’re numbered 1, 2, 3, and 4, with 1 being the row of lights closest to the house and 4 being the row furthest away.
  • Users are welcome to open up the shed to get poop bags, turn on lights, sign in, etc.  There are hooks on both doors to hold them open, so please attach them so the doors don’t blow and bang in the wind.
  • Please do not move any equipment around, as it may be set for the week’s classes or private lessons. The A-frame may be raised and lowered, as well as jump bars.
  • The cost is $15 per hour (minimum) per student or $150 for a year.  Please leave the money in the money box in the storage shed, and sign in so Debbie will know you’ve been there.
  • When you leave the premises, please be sure to close up the shed, empty the pools (if they’ve been used), and properly close the gate.
