Due to our class is held at our Indoor Facility, we require both Handlers & Instructors to bring their own Mask to EVERY class.
*At this time Masks are required to be worn by all Handlers & Instructors while in our building. So please practice at home getting your puppy used to you wearing a Mask.
All Handlers & Instructors need to have their own protective gloves to be worn during "Puppy Play Time." Leather is best, though any good quality hand protective gloves are acceptable. Due to puppies have very sharp teeth and sometimes accidentally mouth Handlers/Instructors when playing, we want everyone to be protected.
Social Distancing/Hand Washing
Upon entering, please remain 6 feet apart and Sanitize your hands at front desk. Handlers are highly encouraged to bring their own Sanitizer, though we will do our best to have available.
*If State/Local and CDC guidelines change or another outbreak occurs, be prepared to receive Temperature Checks upon entering the facility.* For now it is Volunteer basis only.
Handlers & Instructors should not come to class if they are feeling ill or fear that they may have come in contact with someone ill. If you consider yourself to be immune compromised, you must make a decision for your own safety based on the parameters set for this class.
If the class is cancelled due to COVID-19, Handlers will have the option of a "Pro-rated Check Refund" from date cancelled or a "Pro-rated Credit" that may be applied to a MDTC Membership when the puppy becomes age eligible to attend our Regular Basic Obedience Class.
