COVID-19 Guidelines:

Outdoor classes are limited to 6 dogs, indoor classes 4 dogs. We will be practicing social distancing at a minimum of 6 ft apart for anyone not from the same household. Everyone must bring a mask for when your trainers are in close proximity to assist you (outdoors), or to be worn at all times at indoor classes. Trainers will hand sanitize in between interactions. 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 to COVID-19, or are high risk: DO NOT attend class and notify us immediately so we can take the necessary measures.
