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.

Puppy School Classes

All our new Puppy School courses will be delivered online, for the time being. If the advice about social distancing is relaxed, we will consider starting in person courses again. 

If the social distancing advice is relaxed part way through a course, we may arrange some optional in person puppy play dates for those students.

For more information about how these classes will work visit our Puppy Training page.

 

Private Training

We are now 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, and 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! 

If you are healthy and feel comfortable doing so, we can still come to you for in home training!

 

Dog Walking, Home Visits & Day Training

At this stage, dog walking, home visit, and day training services will continue. However, please note the following precautions:

  • Notify us if you are going to be at home, and/or if you are unwell

  • If possible, we’d appreciate access to hand washing facilities so we can wash our hands with soap more often (we carry hand sanitiser to use otherwise)

  • We’ll be using our own leashes and toys

  • We'll wash our hands before and after handling harnesses, door handles, or any other owner belongings

Together we can help protect those most vulnerable in our communities.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about these precautions please do not hesitate to contact us.
