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.

Regine Ave. is off mi 4.2 Fairview Loop Rd. It takes about 6 minutes from Wasilla WalMart.

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 Matanuska Spur Rd.
4. Take the first right onto Fairview Loop Rd and go about 2 miles.
5. There will be a sharp left turn on Fairview Loop Rd (and a 25mph sign) just before Regine Ave. Take a left onto Regine Ave.
6. Turn into the first driveway to your right.

2. Follow Edlund until it ends at Fairview Loop Rd (approx 2 mi)
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.

1. Take Parks Hwy northbound.
2. Exit at Hyer Road.
