CLUB TRAINING DAYS
We hold monthly training sessions at Prado Dog Training Grounds in Chino on the first Sunday of every month, including holidays. The area is located just southeast of the intersection of Highway 71 and Euclid Avenue in Chino, CA. The entrance is on the south side of Euclid, across from the shooting & archery range. Enter at the front gate and continue to the office where you must pay an entry fee of $15 before you park or enter a field. The entry fee is per person (or married couple) with 1 or 2 dogs. An additional fee of $5/dog over 2 dogs is also charged. All area rules are strictly enforced. If you are new, ask for the sheet of rules at the office.
The club secretary will send out email reminders to confirm the date and time. If you do not receive an a reminder please contact the club secretary to confirm. There are numerous fields and training areas at the dog park. We try to use the “Front Field” which is the one you see on your left from the entrance road just off Euclid. However, depending on the conditions and cover, you may need to search for a group of orange people with spaniels.
INFORMAL TRAINING GROUPS
Many of our members get together to train their spaniels on weekends or during the week when their schedules permit. Over time they have gravitated into informal training groups. For the most part these groups consist of like minded people who have similar schedules and training objectives. The monthly club training days are the best way to meet some of these people and to see if your schedule and objectives coincide with theirs. New members are always welcome to join in the training sessions.
As a club and as individuals we place the highest emphasis on gun and shooting safety. You will be asked to refrain from shooting at training sessions until one of the members has had a chance to mentor you in the aspects of gun safety and shooting etiquette particular to spaniel field work.
This link will take you to a short manual that presents to basics of Gun Safety and Shooting Etiquette.
