Group Classes and Sessions:
▪ Puppy Class: If you were a participant in the Puppy Introduction class that was postponed halfway through, we will be completely restarting the class. Although we already had completed 2 out of 4 classes, we are adding 2 additional classes. We want those pups properly introduced and to rebuild their confidence.
▪ Group Sessions: Group sessions of any kind will be prohibited for the time being. We cannot allow multiple households and various groups of people in the facility at the same time due to Government Restrictions and the safe & well-being of all of our clients.
