|robk||Our club is a new small club and they don't care whoes dog you bring to training. The only rule is no more than three dogs per handler per day. I am sure that when the club gets bigger this may change.|

Does the broker sell them before putting titles on them?

Training in this sport is all about titling, so if you have a green dog it will take several years of hard work to get it to 3 level. Does not matter if you bring a dog, yours or someone else's and do all out of control bite work sessions then disappear into oblivion!
People know people who train to compete/title and people know people who just show up and like to see the action while holding the dog on a line all tensed up as they will never have the control to go off leash in high distraction work. So such training is just for show and does not matter/count toward anything and the dog eventually grows up to be 6-8 years old and retires from nothing to nothing. But the handler has a lot of videos of how a "real" dog looks like
Some clubs allow the show type stuff as they charge good $$ for it and call them "real" dogs. Some serious clubs will discourage this type of show stuff unless you convince progress towards the 3, then maybe allow you to become a member.

I'm sorry guys. What's green dogs? May I ask?
I tried to google it, but it showed up different meanings.

|Blitzkrieg1||Got a broker that shows up to our club with multiple dogs. No official maximum, the most Iv seen is three dogs to a handler.|

|mycobraracr||My old club or current pay to play don't break my wallet either. Club dues were cheap. My pay to play's prices are going up next month, but still very reasonable. Interestingly enough, there are three decoys including myself at the pay to play, and none of us are currently working dogs we own. It is entirely possible we get away with a bit more than others though.|

|onyx'girl||I love my pay to train group...they are very supportive and it is a core group. I also love the club I'm involved with. Neither one is breaking my wallet. BUT if I was in the business to train up green dogs, I think the attitude would change a bit? Because the HOT status wouldn't be as valuable. Though that may be doing the other teams a disservice to assume they'd judge. They aren't that way at all. Helper work however is extremely appreciated by all.|

|mycobraracr||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.|
