Our Services & COVID-19

We're taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously, and are making every effort to minimise the impact on our communities. We will continue to adjust our strategies as the situation evolves, but the following is our current plan for each of our services.

Classes & puppy Social Club

Adult dogs and fully vaccinated puppies

We're currently running our Senior Puppy School and Modern Manners courses at Hays Paddock in Kew! There are several ways we are keeping these classes as safe as possible:

  • digital record keeping. We are using the Vic Gov QR code service. Please download the app from go.vic.gov.au/check-in to save time at class.

  • maintaining 1.5m between humans from outside your household (a standard leash is 1.2m - if your puppy can sniff anyone you're too close!)

  • all participants must carry a suitable face mask, and wear them if they go indoors

  • hand sanitiser and hand washing stations available at class

  • adopting an arrive-train-leave mentality

  • signage indicating COVIDSafe plan - please follow all advice on signage

Puppies up to 14 weeks

We have returned to in person classes for our baby puppies! These are limited to 4 puppies, and due to current COVID-19 density limits we are limiting the humans to two people per puppy, unless you have extra dependants that cannot be left at home. 

There are several ways we are keeping these classes as safe as possible:

  • digital record keeping. We are using the Vic Gov QR code service. Please download the app from go.vic.gov.au/check-in to save time at class.

  • classes limited to 2 people per puppy (keeping to the 2 square metre rule)

  • maintaining 1.5m between humans (a standard leash is 1.2m - if your puppy can sniff anyone you're too close!)

  • all participants must wear a suitable face mask indoors

  • no shared equipment (students should bring everything they require)

  • hand sanitiser and hand washing stations available at classes

  • adopting an arrive-train-leave mentality

  • signage indicating COVIDSafe plan - please follow all advice on signage

 

Private Training

We are offering online video coaching as an alternative to in home privates.  We’re really excited to provide this opportunity! 

 

Video calls are quite effective! They also save you time, you don’t have to clean the house for someone to come over, we get to see the dog’s behaviour without another human being present, and the reduced distractions will accelerate their learning. 

 

During our video calls, we’ll cover the same dog training skills that we would've covered in-person. We’ll explain, demonstrate, answer questions, and provide feedback for each exercise - just like we would in-person! ​

 

Dog Walking, Home Visits & Day Training

Stay tuned! Dog walking, home visit, and day training services will return in 2021, with CovidSafe precautions.
