Trainers are fully vaccinated. We will be practicing social distancing at a minimum of 6 ft apart for anyone not from the same household. Masks are to be worn at all times at indoor classes. Please bring your own supplies. We ask that you do not bring anyone one else to class (friends, extended family, children under 16), with a max of 2 household handlers per dog. If you are ill, have any symptoms, think you may have been exposed or have tested positive COVID-19, DO NOT attend class and notify us immediately so we can take the necessary measures. In the event classes need to be cancelled due to COVID-19 reasons, we will contact you about options for rescheduling or to convert your tuition balance towards other training services.
