We are highly committed to keeping our classrooms as safe as possible for everyone. Below are the current precautions we are taking to ensure the safety of our clients and staff in our in-person Group Classes. Please note that these policies are subject to change if the positive test rate for Los Angeles County begins to increase again.

  • As of 3/26/22 masks are optional in our classroom. This is subject to change at any time if there is an increase in positive test rates for COVID in Los Angeles County.

  • A maximum of 3 people per household will be permitted to attend your class in-person. This is subject to change at any time if there is an increase in positive test rates for COVID in Los Angeles County. Additional members of your household can watch your class sessions via our live Zoom portal for your class. Only one dog/human team at a time is permitted on the stairs.

Any person who is unwilling to comply with the above safety protocols will be asked to leave the class until they are willing to do so, and no credits or refunds will be given in these cases – no exceptions. Please feel free to call us at 818-832-9906 if you have any questions about our policies.

Contingency Plan:

  • Any student who learns that they have been exposed to COVID-19 must notify us immediately, and neither they nor their dog will be permitted to return to in-person class sessions during their CDC recommended quarantine period. They will be able to attend virtually and get feedback from their instructor in live, online Zoom room portals to their class sessions, as well as receive additional support via phone and/or email for class sessions they are not able to attend in person.

  • If any student or staff member who has been attending a class tests positive for COVID-19,  the class may transfer to live, interactive, online Zoom rooms during the CDC recommended quarantine period.

  • If the Los Angeles County 7 day average for COVID-19 positive test results rises to above 15%, Group Class sessions may switch to our live, interactive Zoom portals until it drops to 15% 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 feel free to contact us anytime about the status of our in-person Group Classes.

Anyone wishing to enroll in an in-person Group Class at J9’s K9s must agree to and abide by the above conditions – no exceptions, no credits or refunds. Again, please feel free to call us at 818-832-9906 if you have any questions or concerns about safety protocols at J9’s K9s.
