Prairie Vista organizes training days, between February and August, held in various locations in Alberta. Club training days support and reinforce the ongoing training members undertake individually but are not intended as a substitute for ongoing training in obedience and hunting skills at home. Training days enable members to work with live birds (in season), meet other club members in their area and to get support from other members.
Prairie Vista chapter must pay insurance premiums for all attendees at training activities, whether or not they participate in dog training. Non-members attending any club training activities will be charged a fee per person per day to cover the cost of insurance.
Winter training activities (February to April) are held indoors. Later training activities take place outdoors, in rugged terrain, and in all weather conditions. Bring supplies to keep your dogs comfortable, water and crates, when not working. Weather appropriate clothing with comfortable, protective footwear is essential. Sunscreen, insect repellent, and a lawn chair will help keep handlers and spectators comfortable throughout the day.
Due to the nature of our training days, blaze orange must be worn for out door training days.
