What you need to know is our property is an off the grid homestead and Canine Sports Park (Agility, Dock Diving, Herding, Search & Rescue Training and Basic Dog Training Classes) currently under construction. As construction is underway, you may see open/studded walls, insulation, construction lights and a basic concrete floor. For winter classes we heat with wood and do our best to keep the temperature around 70 degrees. We do not have an internet connection, but your phones and mobile data should work well in our home. Once you arrive our home is a 1/3 mile off Pine Street, primarily up hill on a gravel driveway. Look for a sign that looks like a street name sign, that says Doghill Homestead, also one that says Private Road. That is us and you are a guest, so please come on up. As an off the grid/natural facility we do not pave any surfaces and are working to create green roof structures. We maintain a dirt/grass roadway to allow rain/runoff to stay on our property. This allows water to be naturally filtered through the ground before entering any watershed and or rivers. Although some driving smaller cars are nervous coming up the dirt road, everyone has made it. If you are nervous about the trip up, please call and I will pick you up at the bottom of the driveway.
