Our Training Facility!

Indoor view - new Better Companion Training Facility August 2005

Our training facility; including a heated building large enough to hold all our classes or even APDT Rally trials, an office, kennel area, lobby and restroom is located on Fairview Loop Rd about midway between Knik Goose Bay Rd and the Hyer Road access. We also offer a large, securely fenced 10,000 sq-ft groomed-grass field that is in use for dog sports, some workshops and other activities as well as our weekly “Open Play Time” from late spring through fall as weather permits. We have a small store on site where you may purchase an assortment of supplies, treats, and training gear.

Want to rent our facility?

It is available for $25./hour please contact Claudia for rental details

Map to Better Companion Training Center

1400 Regine Ave

Regine St. is off mi 4.2 Fairview Loop Rd. It takes about 8-10 minutes from Wasilla Wal-Mart. You can enter Fairview Loop from anywhere and go to mi 4.2, then turn south onto Regine St. The corner of Fairview Loop and Regine is marked with a yellow sign of The Better Companion, and the driveway has an even bigger sign

Here are some more specific directions:

Coming from Palmer:

  1. Take Seward Meridian Pkwy toward Wasilla.
  2.  Go past Walmart on Seward Meridian Pkwy to the end.
  3.  At the "T" intersection, turn left onto Old Matanuska Rd.
  4.  Take the first right onto Fairview Loop Rd (downhill at the "Y" and then over railroad tracks), follow Fairview Loop Rd for about 3 miles.
  5. There will be a sharp left turn on Fairview Loop Rd (and a 25mph sign). After that turn, the first street on the left is Regine Ave.
    Take a left onto Regine Ave.
  6. Turn into the first driveway to your right.

Coming from Big Lake, Knik, West Wasilla, and North:

  1. Take Knik Goose Bay Rd, and turn onto FERN Ave (at the signal). Coming from Town you'll turn left (there's a left turn lane); coming from Vine Rd/ Tesoro Gas Station you'll turn right.
  2. Follow Fern Ave. until it ends at Fairview Loop Rd (approximately 2 miles – very straight road).
  3. Turn left onto Fairview Loop Rd., go about 1 mile.
  4. Turn right onto Regine Ave. There is a large brick house at the SE corner. Regine Ave comes just BEFORE a sharp right turn on Fairview Loop.
  5. Turn into the first driveway to your right.

Coming from Parks Hwy/Clapp Rd area: (new route!)

  1. Clapp Rd (Mernard Sports Center area) now goes through from Parks Hwy to KGB Rd., coming out at the far northern end of Fairview Loop Rd.  For those of you out in the Church Rd. area or thereabouts, this might be a good alternative to either driving out to Vine Rd and over to KGB Rd., or all the way into Wasilla and back out KGB Rd. You can either cross KGB and take FLR (approx.. 7 miles), or turn left on KGB Rd. and go down to Fern Ave. for a more direct (less curves) route.

Coming from Glenn Hwy (Palmer, Chugiak, Eagle River

  1. Take Parks Hwy northbound.
  2. Exit at Fairview loop Rd/ Hyer Rd – exit (second exit from Glenn Hwy, BEFORE Wasilla). 
  3. Turn left and cross under the Parks Hwy overpass.
  4. At the "T" intersection turn right (north) onto Fireweed (frontage rd.). Go 3/10th of a mile. 
  5. Turn left onto Fairview Loop Rd. Go 1 mile to fork in the road. Take the left fork over the railroad tracks (stay on Fairview Loop Rd!). DO NOT take the right fork uphill
    (that's Old Matanuska Rd, bringing you into Wasilla). Follow for about 3 more miles.
  6. There will be a sharp left turn on Fairview Loop Rd (and a 25mph sign). After that turn, the first street on the left is Regine Ave. Take a left onto Regine Ave.
  7. Turn into the first driveway to your right
