Welcome to See Spot Grin

Here's a shout out to all the teams of two and four leggers who recently started classes at See Spot Grin. Thanks for trusting us with your dogs.  We're glad you're here! 

Help us welcome them. If you see a new face, be sure to introduce yourself!

Exciting News from Hog Dog Productions! 


The road from Ski Lane to the turn to See Spot Grin has been widened and the drive down the hill has been paved. It’s easy to get up a good head of steam going down the hill on that beautiful flat surface! PLEASE KEEP YOUR SPEED AT 15 MPH. Hog Dog will be required to put 2 speed bumps on the flat, widened part. If speeding continues down the hill, more will be installed. ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT SPEED BUMPS.

Very soon you will notice that the portapots are missing. The indoor bathrooms will be ready mid January. The entrance to the new bathrooms will be located at the rear of the tenant house. (The new construction across from the large field.) Please use the door that does NOT face the field. The outer door is marked RESTROOMS. Once inside, the men's room is to the right and the ladies to the left as marked on the doors. There are 2 stalls, 1 sink and 1 shower in each bath. NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED IN THE RESTROOMS. (Please wait to use the new bathrooms until the portapots are gone.)

The See Spot Grin classroom is getting 2 new heaters and a new light over the door that will hopefully be bright enough to extend to part of the parking area. Hopefully they’ll be installed by your next visit!

As a reminder, dogs are not allowed off leash anywhere EXCEPT the small fenced field behind the big white barn. You may walk your dog on leash through the big field and the parking field. Please do not walk your dogs adjacent to the sheep field, near the white house or  towards the top of the hill. The small fenced field is available for rental on the Hog Dog website up to 3 pm. After 3 pm, you may use the field free of charge, but only as a quick ex for your dog, not for extended playtime will waiting for your class. If your dog finds a toy in the field, please ask them to leave it behind when they leave.

New Resources Added

A recent study suggests that allowing your dog to jump out of your parked vehicle could cause long term joint disease. The Hitch Dog Ramp a great alternative to having your dog jump in and out of your vehicle, and made locallly!
