I want to also include dock diving since I checked the dock diving website and it doesn't look like there is a club in that area. I would want to find trainers that have experience and have earned titles in these sports to train. Basically want a one place go to sports facility for dogs. It's kind of a pipe dream right now but I would love to make it happen if I can find people interested in being a part of it. It would be similar to like a human sports complex only for dogs and I would want an indoor facility as well as outdoor.

Sometimes I think a bunch of us Chazzers should get together, because I know there's a few of us who all dream of owning a canine sports facility.

That's awesome. I was really interested in doing the exact same thing for a while! I am not so interested anymore, but I love having access to places like this!

Can you hire me? Maybe not for straight up training. But other stuff. I would move to ABQ.

I was looking heavily into doing the same thing, complete with a regulation dock dogs pool, with my friend. Also probably doggy daycare and maybe boarding. It's been put off because getting the loans and grants is seriously intimidating. And finding the proper location. So much red tape. We found a fantastic place, and they wouldn't approve it for any dog business :/.

We have had that exact same problem finding a place for training (where I work now.) We gave up our old building because the rent was insane, and now we are training in the back of our original building, which is fine, but just not enough room for what we really want... every place the head trainer looks at, when she says we want to use it for dog stuff, they're like NOPE NOPE NOPE. But c'mooooooon!!

I actually have a business plan started, a list of equipment I want to buy including where I want to get it from and the prices for it all... but I just plain don't have the time to really devote to pursuing it. I have tried to wrangle my mom into joining forces with me LOL. I'm like "would you quit your job and come work for me? I'll make you operations manager!" No dice LOL. C'MOOOOOOOOON!!

Yuuup. So much fun. The place we found had an indoor, in ground pool. With locker rooms. And a house attached. And an apartment. And open space inside. And an above ground basement with double bay garage doors heading out to the yard. It was very very intriguing. There would have been a lot of thought put into setting it up, but there is potential.

Working with my friend though is a little difficult, I don't think she quite gets the need for 'ring space' which was my ultimate goal. She is more interested 'holding a few pet classes' while my vision is more like a serious sport facility.
