Agility Practice at
Space is available at Silver Dawn for Paws4Fun members who wish to work with their dogs over the winter.
Silver Dawn is a stable for retired horses located at 971 Sanderson Road. The arena is used to store hay and exercise the horses with a space about 55’ x 110' which may be used to set up agility equipment.
Equipment consists of a dog walk, tire and teeter from Paws4Fun. Jan and Lorna have an A- frame, weaves, 4 tunnels and jumps as well as various training materials. This year broad and panel jumps have been added. The jumps have been changed to the new 2018 heights. This equipment is intended for practice and is not AAC approved. Equipment must be set up and put away after each practice session.
Practice times may be booked by Paws4Fun members every evening from 6:30 - 9:00 and Saturday and Sunday mornings from 9 - 12. The arena is used to exercise the horses in the afternoons and by Jan and Lorna weekday mornings.
The cost is $10 cash per person. This covers arena rental. You may have more than one dog
and there is no time limit. Users must sign a liability waiver. All dogs must be up to date on vaccinations including Bordetella.
Bookings are made through Jan and Lorna:
Until December 4, contact Lorna at [email protected]
After December 4, contact Jan at [email protected]
To get to the arena, you must cross the paddock while the horses are in the stable. The paddock may be muddy and icy.
One person can move the jumps and tunnels. It is best to practice with someone if you want to move the larger equipment.

There are no bathroom facilities. There is a small Canadian Tire potty for emergencies.
