ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR OBEDIENCE CLASSES (see separate post on Facebook for Agility Training)
· Only Instructors are to handle the training equipment.
· Handlers are encouraged to bring their own small mat to use in class.
· Handlers will be required to examine their own dog in the Stand for Exam exercise.

It may be necessary to vary class times depending on numbers attending in order to maintain social distancing. Please be prepared to be flexible and keep yourself updated of any changes via Facebook and the Club’s website.
Lastly, if your dog is overwhelmed when you arrive, you will both benefit greatly by simply walking around the perimeter of the training area whilst feeding your dog tasty treats. Do not feel that you need to rush into class but take the time to reacquaint your dog with the environment first.
Thank you for your patience and support during this very trying time and we look forward to seeing you and your dog at training soon.
