Introduction to Obedience & Agility plus Off Leash Play In The Fields
Members and their guests attending this event are invited to participate in both the Introduction to Obedience & Agility and the Off Leash Play In The Fields but you can also take advantage of only one and not the other. This event will repeat on the first and third Saturday of each month. It is held at a private location. The prior evening, specific directions will be sent to everyone scheduled to attend. The training session will be your chance to discuss how to introduce basic obedience concepts which should allow you to have a better relationship with your dog. Common difficulties that we all experience will be discussed. No more pulling, jumping, and suddenly becoming hearing impaired when his name is called! These, as well as other concerns, will be addressed at our Introduction to Obedience session. For those doggies who already know some of the basic commands, you may take this time to reinforce them by engaging in some fun play in Agility practice. Buckets of water for thirsty dogs will be available as well as kiddy swimming pools. We provide folding chairs for members to make use of. There is no time limit. You and your dogs and family and other guests — no one under the age of 15 please! — are welcome to stay for as long as everyone is having fun! Members attending this event are requested to leave an anonymous donation in one of the jars that will be available for this purpose. Donations are needed to assist with the fees charged by Meetup to Organizers, the cost of agility obstacles, and site maintenance. Participation in any activity with the Dog Training Hiking And Fun Meetup is at your own risk.

What we're about

Become a member of the Dog Training Hiking and Fun Meetup to connect with other local owners and their dogs. If you have a puppy or adult dog of any breed or size and would like to meet others while having fun training and playing with your pup, the Dog THAF Meetup might be for you!

At the Saturday events held at FairPlay, woofers are allowed the opportunity to run off-leash and play with others in a safely fenced 3-acre field. Attending members are welcome to spend all or part of the event training their dogs in a separate enclosed area. There will be an opportunity to receive advice on raising, nurturing, disciplining, and training your dog or puppy. Available for use by our members are agility obstacles, all of which are built to regulation standards.

We offer both leashed and unleashed hikes in the woods. We are always happy to hear from our members and will schedule events should we learn that there is an interest. We continually attempt to offer events in which our members are introduced to additional dog sports such as Tracking and Flyball.

Joining the Dog THAF Meetup requires no experience beyond a love for your pet. However experienced trainers and handlers are welcome.
