Question How many hours/km/miles do you go for your training? And how often?

So just a curiosity of mine. I was reading a thread not that long ago of a woman who travels 200miles to see her trainer. And it got me thinking, how far do others go to see theirs and how often?

Looking forward to reading your replies.

Once a week I drive 120 miles one way to train. Once or twice a week I'll drive 70 miles one way.
Right now, however, I'm not training at all

Hour and a half to two hours each way. Well worth it for an excellent trainer with lots of GSD experience.

I'm very sorry onyx'girl I read about Karlo. He is absolutely gorgeous! And I bet he is really looking forward to coming home soon. How are his levels today?

When Paisley was young, I went 3 hours each way 1-2x a month (she was worth the drive!). Luckily, my parents were only an hour from the training place, so I made it a long weekend most of the time.

Now - 1.5 hours each way each week (or every other week) for SchH. 1 hour+ each way for Herding every week or every other week. And if I do Nosework, about 45 min - an hour each way. TJ's puppy class was about 45 min away, but he is done with that now.

I was going 20 to 30 miles once a week. We have stopped his IPO training. I don't think it's good for him to do that with his left HD and bilateral ED issues.

It takes me about an hour and 45 minutes to get to MSU. I pass my exit where we train with Gustavo on the way there. Yesterday I was daydreaming and out of habit took the exit. lol, had to jump back on the highway.
