Practice Days

Where else can you go and work dogs for hours for just $10 or $20!!!!

Practice days  (f/k/a Playdays) are a time for people to bring their dogs out to work stock, and get tips and pointers from some of the more experienced handlers.  They are held at one of our friends/members of the THCSDA homes.  It is a great opportunity to get your dog on different stock and on different fields.

Please review requirements for new or prospective members before attending a practice day under INSTINCT EVALUATIONS.
