GENERAL COVID RULES
PRIVATE LESSON COVID RULES
Only one dog and one handler at this time (i.e., no other family members)
Do not enter the building until the instructor asks you to enter
For Bootcamps, this will be curbside drop-off and pick-up. The trainer will come out and get the dog when you arrive and bring them out when you return at pick up.
If you are renting the pool or taking a private lesson, we ask that only one person comes with the dog at this time. However, we’ll permit a second person if you’re practicing dock diving and need a holder.
When coming for private dock diving lessons, there will be a marker on the dock that you will need to stand behind while the instructor is working with your dog. You may only come closer if the instructor moves away from the ramp and asks you to as they will not be able to wear a mask in the pool. The 6-foot distance needs to be maintained.
There will be no towels, toys or life jackets available for use at this time. Please bring your own supplies and make sure that anything that comes with you leaves with you (e.g., trash, toys, treats, etc.).
