Club Field

Pals & Paws offers one of the best agility practice fields in Florida. Our field is located off Morse Avenue in Jacksonville, FL. Secured with a chain link fence and locked gate. Members receive directions on how to access the field after paying their yearly dues. Our annual dues include unlimited access to the field. Any member can practice 24 hours a day on the field. We offer two agility rings – one for classes and one for practice. So our members always have unlimited access to a practice field.
