ATTENTION CIVILIAN OBEDIENCE and PUPPY CLIENTS

Covid-19 Update!

As of now we are still suspended for group classes due to the CDC and Governor “Stay at Home” orders. When we get the go ahead our plan will be calling our March clients as to a start date. If all goes well I will be scheduling for the next sessions as well at that time. Please keep checking the K9 website and K9 Facebook page for updates.

With these uncertain times we are asking for all to be patient as I am going to be very backed up while playing catch up with civilian training. I will be opening up another Basic Obedience class to try and accommodate those clients in need of training. Understand with Law Enforcement and Hospital teams just getting back to training we are limited to extra time available at K9. At this time I am not returning phone calls or scheduling new clients for new sessions until I am certain we can reopen! March clients will be first to be contacted.

For now, when the Facility opens, the new protocol at K9 for the safety of Instructors and Clients will be:

  • One handler per dog (no visitors or extra person) due to limit of space and ability to social distance.
  • NO children allowed in building at this time, no exceptions.
  • Masks are required, please provide your own. If forgotten I will have some available.
  • We will have hand sanitizer available.
  • With weather permitting most classes will be held outside, dress appropriately. Mosquitoes will be out so you may want to apply bug repellant before you come or bring with you.    

I appreciate your patience as we try and figure this all out. I am just as eager as all of you to get back to work and seeing all of you and your K9 companions.

ATTENTION:  K9ATF is NOW requiring all dogs to have the influenza vaccine in order to take a class or enter the Facility. Make sure the vaccine is covering both strains of the flu which are H3N2 and H3N8.  This is an added requirement to the traditional vaccines.
