In-person Group Classes are back! If the Los Angeles 7 day average for COVID-19 positive test results rises to above 10%, in-person Group Class sessions will switch to our live, interactive Zoom portals until it drops to 10% again. This may fluctuate back and forth as you attend your class. If this happens, no refunds or credits will be offered for class sessions held virtually. You can see the daily report and statistics from the county by clicking here. While we have many safety protocols in place, we feel it would be irresponsible to have multiple people from different households inside our classrooms if our community experiences another spike in cases and appreciate your understanding. Please click here to learn more about what a dog training class session on Zoom is like, and feel free to contact us anytime about the status of our in-person Group Classes. We’re doing Private Training sessions in person, too, with additional safety precautions.

COVID-19 AND YOUR DOGS:

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) reports, “Infectious disease experts and multiple international and domestic human and animal health organizations agree there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets become ill with COVID-19 or that they spread it to other animals, including people. If you are not ill with COVID-19, you can interact with your pet as you normally would, including walking, feeding, and playing. You should continue to practice good hygiene during those interactions (e.g., wash hands before and after interacting with your pet; ensure your pet is kept well-groomed; regularly clean your pet’s food and water bowls, bedding material, and toys).” Click here for more information.

Until more is known about this disease they also recommend that out of an abundance of caution, people who are infected with COVID-19 restrict contact with their animals to avoid contaminating their skin and/or fur, thereby limiting the possibility of transferring the virus to others who may come in contact with their pets.

 

Thank you for the understanding, loyalty and patience you showed us in 2020 – see you soon!
