Dogs and earth skills generally do not mix well. We ask that you do not bring your dog if it is at all possible. We have free ranging chickens and other animals which can be extremely tempting to dogs and their chase instincts. Also they can be a real distraction from learning, and can cause problems for people with allergies. Dogs must be kept ON A LEASH AT ALL TIMES while in the main area, and will not be allowed at mealtimes. You and your dog will have more fun if they stay somewhere else while you are at The Sharpening Stone. If you must bring your dog in order to to attend, we understand and you can purchase a Dog ticket below ($45).
