Dog camps

Marttinen Youth Centre, located in the municipality of Virrat in the region of Pirkanmaa, is also popular among dog owners. The youth centre has excellent facilities for organising various kinds of dog events, camps and trainings. Various dog associations have already used our services.

You can organise dog camps at Marttinen Youth Centre all year round. The courtyard area has a sand field suitable for training as well as an agility course owned by the Virrat-based dog association, Virtain Kirsut ry, which rents out the course. Virrat has plenty of good terrains for tracking training and lakes for water activities, for example.

Marttinen has conference and training facilities of various sizes for up to 200 people, with modern presentation systems. This makes it possible to organise large training events or conferences as part of the camps.

In organising dog and kennel camps, you are helped by

Virtain Kirsut ry, the Virrat-based dog association
