All indoor and outdoor classes have been suspended from 5th November 2020 in line with current Government guidelines regarding COVID 19.

We are able to go ahead with outdoor 1-2-1 training with strict hygiene and cleaning protocols in place.

Please make sure that you wash your hands prior to attending your 1-2-1 lesson and bring hand gel with you to use frequently during the session. Please do not touch any of the equipment – your Instructor will be the only person to handle any equipment and it will be cleaned as required between clients. You do not have to wear gloves or a mask for your outdoor lesson, but are welcome to do so if you would prefer to. Please make sure that you wash your hands thoroughly again on your return home.

Please bring sufficient water & a bowl for your dog together with sufficient training treats etc. for your lesson. In order to effective infection control measures there will be no sharing of water bowls etc.

All equipment will be handled by your Instructor, and will be thoroughly cleaned before & after use as appropriate.

Please DO NOT attend your lesson / class if you are feeling unwell or showing symptoms of COVID 19 – you will not be penalised for non-attendance.

The most common symptoms of Coronavirus are:

  • A recent onset of a new continuous cough
  • A high temperature
  • A loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell

If you develop ANY of these symptoms however mild you should immediately self-isolate and stay at home for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. You should arrange a test by visiting NHS.UK or by calling 119 if you do not have internet access. You must stay at home until you get the results of your test. If you live with someone who has any of the symptoms you must self-isolate for 14 days or until the person with symptoms has received a negative test result. More information is available here:

If you develop symptoms or feel unwell following your lesson please let me know immediately, and follow Government guidelines regarding testing & self isolation. 

This advice will be updated as the situation changes. 

Thank you for your understanding, and please do feel free to contact me on an individual basis if you would like to discuss any concerns.
