I am a pro trainer in New England and it looks like a long miserable winter and I need a training fix. I would like to find some property to lease for 1 week in Feb, 1 week in March and maybe a week in April. I was hoping to find something in Virgina, maybe the Fredricksburg/Richmond area, about a days drive from the state of Mass. I'm not sure of how much snow or how long it lasts in that area of Virgina, I imagine the water would be too cold in Feb/March and maybe April, but it would sure beat 2+ feet of snow, ice and sub zero temps.
Ideally there should be a reasonable (safe) hotel nearby. I will have a few clients with me. I can provide referances from other people whose property I have trained at.
I'd be happy to exchange properties as well, if someone was going to be in the central Mass area and needed a place to train for a few days in the summer. Pictures of my property can be viewed at www.swiftriverretrievers.com
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
