Practice Space

(Members Only)

Our members have the ability to use our indoor training space when the facility is not being used for classes. You must be accompanied by a WKC instructor, who can reserve space for you and must ensure the building is left clean and locked. Space must be reserved in advance. If you are found to be using the facility without a reservation when someone else has reserved it, you will lose this privilege. 

View the calendar to see when time is available. Make arrangements with an instructor to reserve time for your practice session and accompany you while there. Your reservation of time to use the facility includes and implies consent to abide by the Facility Rules and Hold Harmless agreements below.

WKC Facility Rules

Adherence to the following rules is essential for the health and well-being of our dogs, and for ensuring a welcoming and clean space for all members to enjoy. Failure to follow these rules will result in your loss of privileges to rent/use facility practice space.

  1. The premises must be kept disease-free. Your dog must be current on vaccinations. If your dog is sick, keep the dog home that day and call your veterinarian, if necessary.
  2. Brush or comb your dog before coming to the Training Center. This greatly reduces the amount of dog hair on the practice room floor.
  3. Bring poop bags with you so you can clean up after your dog if necessary, anywhere on WKC property, including the parking lot and walkways. Paper towel and disinfectant are provided in the event your dog pees indoors. Please clean it up right away.
  4. Park in designated areas only. Do not block doorways or gates when you park.
  5. A bitch in season must wear panties, or leave her at home.
  6. When going in or out of the building, close the door behind you—every time! There may be a dog who shoots for the door at precisely the instant the door is left open.
  7. Never allow your dog to lunge at or invade the personal space of other dogs. Keep a safety margin around your dog at all times.
  8. Keep a very close eye on your dog—even when he/she is on leash. You must always know precisely where the dog is, what he's is doing, and what is happening around him—or what is about to happen.
  9. Don’t stand in doorways or other tight spaces with your dog.  Not only are you blocking access, you could inadvertently spark a dogfight. Any dog that feels stressed, anxious, or fearful can be triggered when space is tight and another dog is too close. Even if your dog is fine, you have no way of knowing how other dogs will react. Let’s keep all the dogs safe.
  10. As a courtesy to other users of the space, please silence your cell phone when you’re in a practice area.
  11. Children are welcome, but must be supervised at all times.
  12. No smoking, illegal drugs, or alcoholic beverages.
