I like the pay to play better. It does cost a bit more but the one on one time is much better IMO. Plus I like going multiple days a week. I actually took two weeks off of work one time and decoyed 14 straight days for them. I loved it! Some days it was only a couple dogs and a lot of social time and other days it was a lot of dogs. I've also found that my pay to play still gets a "core" group. The same people on the same days rain or shine. It feels just like a club.
