We will be inside the building for this session.
We will have to follow CDC and NYS guidelines as they relate to COVID-19 so that
we can continue to hold classes. They are as follows:
1) Everyone must wear a face mask (we don't care what type or style) during
class. Yes, that includes while running your dog. This may not be easy (I
have tried it, it can be done but is a learning curve). If you
don't have a mask, don't worry, I have made and will continue to make masks that
students can use and take home, if desired.
2) Please don't come with a spectator without prior permission - only the person running their dog(s)
should attend. We have to limit the number of people on site and maintain
social distancing, and this will help greatly.
3) Only the instructor(s) will be setting bars in a class.
4) Please maintain social distancing while sitting in the chairs that are
ringside. You can use the crates in the building for
your dog, but maintain social distancing whenever possible.
5) Please enter/exit through the main door, but be wary that other people may be
coming the other way through either door.
The bathroom in the building is available for your use. Please be cautious
when coming/going. There is a sign in the bathroom with instructions for minimizing touch
contact with surfaces in there.
7) We will be sanitizing the touch surfaces (gates, doorknobs, chairs, crates)
in between classes. Please be considerate of the instructors that need
time to do this function in between classes. We apologize that there will
be less time to chat with the instructors! Also, if you want to chat with
the other students, please maintain social distancing. And, don't let the
dogs interact with each other, they can be carriers too!
8) When you arrive each week, the instructor will ask you if you have been
tested positive for COVID-19 or been in contact with anyone that has tested
positive in the last 14 days. This is procedure, required by law.
Please be patient with your instructors, we all have to follow these rules!
If you have a fever, have tested positive, or are under mandatory quarantine
please contact your instructor as soon as possible and please don't come to
class. If this happens you will get a partial refund.
Thank you so much for continuing to support AgileDogs, and we hope to see you
all again soon!
