Practice Rules

  • DASH practices are for DASH members only (those who have passed the safety test or have been approved with a waiver from a known instructor, at the Board's discretion)
  • Those wishing to become a club member must contact the Membership Chairperson prior to the practice so that someone will be available to conduct the equipment safety test.
  • Anyone showing up for practice must either be there to help set up or tear down - we appreciate if you can do both!
  • Any damaged, broken or dangerous condition with any equipment must be reported immediately to a Board member.

Practice depends upon the collective efforts of everyone participating in practice to help set-up and/or tear down equipment. If you cannot stay for an entire practice, either arrive early for set-up or stay after for teardown.


Practice Sessions

  • To participate you must be a member. Applications are accepted on-site after the proficiency and safety test.
  • All dogs must be leashed, penned, or crated when not on the practice course.
  • Clean up after your dog. This could be the fastest way to lose our site (bring plastic bags).
  • Only flat buckle or clasp collars are permitted on the dogs when practicing. No, choke, pinch, prong, or electronic collars are permitted under any circumstances.
  • Leashes should be no longer than six feet. Flexi or retractable leads are not permitted.
  • Bring water for your dog.
