I don't really need a training partner, but I thought I would offer to be a training partner if there is anyone in Southeast Michigan that might be interested. I have a house on 20 acres, with a little over 1 acre fenced in backyard. It's a very safe place to work. I plan to build an agility course as soon as the weather warms up too. If there's anyone out there that would like to train together let me know. Copper could use the socialization, so that's what I get out of it. You get a safe open area for training and if you were so inclined and trusted your dog they can be run in the 18 acre field behind the house (not fenced).
