08 April 2021 - As per O. Reg. 82/20 - Pet training IS permitted during the Stay-At-Home order - so classes are running!

COVID-19 Protocols:

1. Masks are MANDATORY.  No mask = no class.

 

2. Classes are staggered in order to have minimal people on the property at any given time & allow time between classes to disinfect

3. NO SPECTATORS (so sorry) – only one handler per family can attend as we can't ensure social distancing in the viewing area.

4. Social distancing (minimum of 6 feet ++) must be adhered to at ALL TIMES.

5. If you, or a family member is feeling unwell or has been unwell within the last 14 days, or if you may have been exposed to someone ill – DO NOT COME TO CLASS! It is about all of us and our families – I personally have 2 parents in their 80's with cancer…

We are also keeping up to date on a daily basis with the government & health officials' recommendations.

**Note that the below class start dates are assuming there are no more delays (lock-downs or stay at home orders) IF there is a delay or interruption in the class schedule due to government restrictions (& I hope there isn't!) your class will resume as soon as legislation allows - same day of the week, same time slot so keep this in mind when registering.
