STSK9’s facilities are located in Warrenton, Virginia, in the heart of Virginia's horse country. The one hundred and twenty acres of gently rolling hills that surround our facility offer up many different specialized training settings in which to train dogs. The centerpiece of our facility is our three hundred by one hundred and fifty foot arena. The arena is divided into thirds, and houses a world-class Mondioring pitch (currently a work-in-progress), a general dog-sports pitch, and a young-dog environmental-training pitch. Most of our group and private training takes place in this arena. During inclement weather, we will conduct our training in our indoor arena that is only slightly smaller. The property also has a number of fields, and many wooded areas where specialized training can take place.
Warrenton is located just 55 miles west of Washington, D.C. Washington Dulles International Airport is less than an hour away. We are also accessible from National Airport, and the Baltimore-Washington International Airport if you don't mind a longer drive.
We recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Warrenton as your local dog-friendly hotel/motel. Those travelling without pets can also stay at the Hampton Inn, or any of the several motels that are local to our facility.
