COVID-19 Safety for You and Your Dog
Updates as of 2023
One handler per dog for inside group classes. If two people want to attend a group class with their dog, they can do so only after they have both signed page two of our COVID-19 Waiver of Liability self certifying that they both are vaccinated. This is only required if two people want to attend in a group class. This is not required for one person in attendance. This is not required for private lessons clients.
Our tiny business of two has one trainer with an autoimmune disease and the other a very active family member with both very young and very old extended family. The trainer, Ashley Clark, will continue to wear a face mask indoors until she has clearance from her doctors.
Face masks are only required if you are not feeling well or have any symptoms (sneezing, coughing, runny nose etc.) We respect clients choice to wear face masks. If you would like your trainer to wear a face mask we are happy to do so, just let us know.
We appreciate your help in keeping us safe!
