How far do you drive for Sch club?

http://www.southeasternregionusa.com/clubpage.htm

I posted a link I found that shows clubs near me. I am in Summerville so you could just as easily say Charleston in order to get an idea of where I am. I saw one in Long, SC but I have not yet looked into how far away that is. Columbia is about 2 hours or so. Maybe just a bit less. I dont go that way much except to go to the zoo...LOL

So I am curious to know how far you all would drive to get to a club? I dont have a dog to do this with YET but I hope to in the future. Thanks!

Re: How far do you drive for Sch club?

I now go to my club which is about 15 min from the house. But other clubs nearby that I've trained at their fields/competed, etc are typically 45 to 1hr 45 minutes drive from me.

Up until I got laid off we were driving about 2 hours each way to our club.

Re: How far do you drive for Sch club?

So I just looked up Longs, SC and thats almost 3 hours away from me! I want to get into this but I just cant see spending so much time on the road. I'll keep looking!

Another question: How often do most clubs meet? Would this be a drive I'd have to make weekly?

Re: How far do you drive for Sch club?

Currently go 1.75 hrs each way, once a week. I don't mind it at all, the drive helps me unwind. I want to train a bit more often with the person who I am currently working with at our club. Since I am new to the sport I feel like I need some one-on-one, maybe not regularly but a few times to get us back on track (we are a bit behind, having focused on ring training and such). I'm trying to get my finances in order and life will be less hectic in about a month so I can re-visit that option of going a second time, maybe once or twice a month. This person's place is about 3 hrs from me.

I'm currently about 50 miles away. I use to drive 97 miles one way before my current club.

1hr 45 minutes drive each way. There are clubs a lot closer but prefer the club I am in.

Re: How far do you drive for Sch club?

Thanks! Looks like Swansea is closer so I may try to find out more information on that one. I am fine with driving a couple hours. I just want to be realistic about what I can actually manage. I dont want to commit to it and get a dog with the drive for it and than not be able to get to the club!

Like I said, I dont have a dog yet that I can do this with but I want to be as prepared as possible so that when I am ready I can get everything all lined up

Re: How far do you drive for Sch club?

I think I may have emailed the gentleman from Swansea a year or so ago when I had some questions. If I remember right he was very nice!

I really hope this works out! I have been interested in this for awile now. I guess I would have to start the search for a pup...

Off topic~I dont suppose a year would be too early to start looking for the right breeder?
