With fenced paddocks, a canopy of shade trees, and a walking trail along a pond, you and your best friend will have new sights, sounds, and scents to explore. Experience the farm as an environmental agility field, and practice good manners with fun distractions in these easy-going classes. Discover your dog’s brilliance with games and puzzles, or learn to follow your dog as she learns to follow her nose.
