I think more clubs are going with the pay to play type system. I train with a core group club. We have restrictions on the dogs/titles and how many can be worked per handler.
I also train at a pay to train during the summer months. Many of those dogs are not permanent handler situations. Only one or two clubs are left in my area that aren't pay to train.
I was curious because green dogs are hard to come by, and I'd love to work with younger adolecent pups, just because I love the sponge stage, which others seem to fear or absolutely avoid.
If the handler isn't transparent in the goals, there must be some type of fall out if they seem to routinely train/sell/train/sell, even if they have reasons.
