THE SAFETY of dogs is our primary concern. By using the equipment, participants acknowledge that they are familiar with the sport of Dog Agility, and that their dogs are familiar with and able to perform all obstacles safely. The outdoor ring is fenced (4-feet high), but it will not contain a dog determined to escape. We assume no liability.

DRIVING ON AREA ROADS Please use caution when driving in the area. Roads are gravel and there are some tight curves. Animals are often on the roadways. As well as wild animals, there can be cattle and horses. Drive very slowly on our driveway. For much of the spring/summer we have young Kildeer roaming about and they blend in to the gravel.
