We've added the practice topic info to our Google Calendar. If you want to be sure you're not going to miss one of the workshops or practice offerings you really want to work on, check the calendar.
ARFF practices at our home field in Carlisle, Massachusetts from late April until November (weather permitting). Our practices include full courses from USDAA, AKC, CPE and NADAC trials, as well as exercises designed to teach and refine handling skills. Members of the Practice Committee offer insights and assistance during practice for those who would like training help.
