How much time does it take to get to your favorite dog training place? I have 4-5 go to places. All are over an hour drive one way. The best is an hour and a half. I have always thought that this was normal. Because even the club members that live right next to one of these spots will travel to meet up with folks at the other spots. Heck, when I first started this fun game I used to leave the country to play fetch with my dogs.
