From July 2020 we will be running courses once again, following government guidelines to avoid the spread of Covid-19. This will include social distancing and other hygiene and safety measures. This will include the avoidance of direct contact between dogs. However puppies at the Puppy Class may get a brief close up interaction for the benefit of their socialisation. This will be carefully managed solely by the trainer with hygiene measures in place. Full details of our measures to avoid the spread of Covid-19 will be sent before attending the course. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for details before then. I will be limiting places on each course to just 4 dogs and 1 person from each household. This may change if the government’s recommendations change.
