    Anybody from the Coshocton area? I need to get my dog ready for the field trial season here in the Great Lakes Region but all this snow up here in the Cleveland area is screwing this up.

    What's the weather like around Woodbury WA? Are there designated dog training areas or can you go any where? How are the Wildlife Officers/Rangers down there?

    Mike,

    Don't know about Woodbury, but you and Scout are welcome to come out here anytime. Oxbow Lake WLA has a public dog training area open 365. The rest of the WLA is open for dog training from Sept 1 to April 30. Nice water and pretty good land. Just small patches of snow here and there, hardly anything left. Water is open.

    How far from Cleveland? It normally takes me about an hour and twenty minutes to get to Resthaven. I like Woodbury because of the rolling terrain. It lends itself to tougher set-ups due to all the factors the countryside provides.

    Thanks for the invite. Brett and Trent and I are trying to hook up.

    We are almost exactly 100 miles and 2 hrs. west of Resthaven. However, there are several nice training areas out here. If you came early on a Saturday morning, we could hit 3-4 different spots in the course of one day, depending on how many people/dogs were involved.

    One nearby spot in particular is, IMO, ideal for FT type water setups. Lots of possibilities including multiple reentries, points, channels, etc. I would have a map of it on my web site, except the Army Corp of Engineers just built it a couple years ago and it is not showing up on the satellite photos yet. Parking is a bit of a problem, but otherwise it is super. Also, not good right after a heavy rain as this is part of a flood control project.
