Before You Rent
What You Must Know Before You Rent Time At Big Sky
Our Rules & Guidelines
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 ring is fenced (3-feet high), but it will not contain a dog determined to escape. We assume no liability.
Use of the property
You are welcome to walk your dog(s) on the property immediately before and after your rental session, however, we assume no liability. There are ticks. At times there are coyotes, deer and other wildlife nearby. We have had very rare reports of bear and cougar sightings. Please be considerate of others using the agility field.
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. A nearby neighbor allows their two dogs to roam freely on the road in front of their house. (One of them will even nap in the middle of the road!) Drive very slowly on our driveway. For much of the spring/summer we have young Kildeer roaming about. They blend in to the gravel very well.
PARKING There is a gravel parking area near the training building. If it is full, you may park in our driveway. For most of the season you can also drive around to the outdoor ring. Drive very slowly – it is bumpier than it may look, and others may be using the property. We assume no liability for damage to your vehicle; nor will we pay any towing fees.
PORTA-POTTY There are no washrooms (or running water) in the building. A Porta-Potty is provided for your use.
USE OF EQUIPMENT Feel free to move jumps and tunnels to suit your practice session. Please do not move the Dogwalk or A-Frame. The teeter may be moved if there are two or more people assisting. PLEASE REPORT ANY DAMAGED OR FAULTY EQUIPMENT. Again, do not move the contact equipment. We assume no liability for any injuries incurred while you are moving equipment.
LESSONS Instructional classes, lessons (group or private), clinics or seminars are NOT PERMITTED without prior approval.
EVENTS Trials, fun matches, or similar events are NOT PERMITTED without prior approval.
CLEAN UP A garbage can for poop bags is located by the ring and outside the training building. Please try to avoid accidents in the ring. If they do occur, there is a spray bottle to be used for clean-up. Please do not litter and please take any garbage with you when you leave. Please read the Potty Policy regarding accidents in the Building.
WATER Please bring water for yourself and your dog. Water is not available at the ring or in the building.
SHADE The agility ring is located in an open area with no nearby shaded areas. Please ensure that both you and your dog are properly protected from the heat and the sun.
NO SMOKING is allowed on the property.
NON-PARTICIPANTS You are allowed to bring friends, family members, and/or other dogs to your training session (subject to the conditions outlined in the Waiver you sign). Your guests are not allowed to handle a dog in the ring without prior permission and payment of a rental fee. You or your guest(s) are not allowed to handle their dogs unless the dog is familiar with the equipment and we have granted approval for the dog prior to your rental time.
BEHAIVIOR WHILE ON THE PROPERTY Humane and positive training only is to be practiced at all times. No shock collars, choke or prong collars, no hitting, pinching, or other abusive practices, no throwing objects at dogs. No harsh or inhumane treatment will be tolerated on the property. Dangerous or inappropriate activities are prohibited. Aggressive, unpredictable, or uncontrollable dogs will be dismissed from the property without refund of the rental fee, and future rentals will be denied. Determination of unacceptable behavior is in the sole opinion of the owners of the property.
THE OWNERS MAY REVOKE RENTALS WITHOUT EXPLANATION. THESE RULES AND GUIDELINES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT THE OWNERS’ DISCRETION AND WITHOUT NOTICE.
