Train Like You Trial - Our Rings Are Ready!

Fill the gaps in your training plan!

Happy Dogs offers individuals passionate about dog training with a place where they can train in a “trial-like” setting on their own schedule. It is the only Competition Obedience facility in South Carolina with a membership program.

The Happy Dogs facility consists of 6,000 sq. feet of climate-controlled space with two full-sized rings. There is a generous warm-up area, space for crating and a full kitchen. Both rings are equipped with a full set of obedience jumps. There are also two sets of Rally signs available. For the serious trainer, there is a 55″ television for viewing training and trial videos or to gather around and watch the big events and tournaments as a group.

Not sure you are ready to become a member? No problem. There are training options for nonmembers too.
