We used an office space for training(boardroom), the owner of the building is a dog trainer and was generous to everyone that wanted to train or hold seminars. WE didn't do IPO but mostly competitive OB.
The owner recently opened up a training facility(in another building) with plans for a therapy/exercise pool!
Maybe if you plant that seed with a property owner, they will see the need for a facility and work to get one going.
You could get some rubber mats for where you set up the blinds so the dog won't tear up the flooring.

Yeah, we would rent the place for 2 or 3 hours once a week. I sorta chuckled at your post lala - great idea if we were renting something for several months, but we are not all the rich. :O)
I think the complaints came from other users of the agility place - from what I gather is that some of the agility patrons are concerned about being associated with us horrible abusive trainers and owners of dangerous dog , and voiced their feelings to the owners of the place. So loosing our once-a-week two hour rental was better than loosing the regular clientele.
Mister C - LOVE your ideas!!! We have one local shelter, they definitly don't have extra space - but checking with a real estate place for empty unused office space or similar spaces is genius!

Empty, carpeted commercial office space maybe? A local real estate agent that specializes in commercial might know of something.
American Legion, Shriners, local shelter, etc might have something you could use that would offset expenses for un or under-used space.

|lalachka||Ok my solution was dumb. I thought you're renting a place. This won't work for once a week lol but Nigel's sure will|

|Blanketback||Do the agility people not want your rental fees? I know that with a club I'm in (non-dog, but still) we depend on the rentals to supplement the income. Especially heating in the wintertime, lol! We have exemptions for the rentals too, which in your case would include the prong collars, by comparison. This sounds weird to me, that they'd willingly lose that added income. And yeah, the barking part is outright funny, lol.|

|holland||An agility facility is complaining about barking-odd ...are there such a thing as heating riding arenas-I hated training in a riding arena- are there other dog facilities or warehouses-you could put down mats as was suggested|

I didn't know that existed. that's amazing and is a solution for sure. warehouse sounds like a perfect place
