There will be early and late classes. 6:30 start time and 7:45 start time. Class sizes will be a maximum of 10 people with one support person or partner. HOW TO REGISTER:  (Starting Oct 22nd.)    1.Pick A CLASS TIME: Start by opening the blue box at the top of this page. 2. REGISTER: Students will be required to Pre-Register. The arrival of the form only indicates your interest. You should send your class fee as soon as you can, as that is what inserts you into the class time of your choice. 3. CLASS FEES: Your first set of 8 classes with us - regardless of level and former training, is $220.50 GST inc. This includes a text book with readings to prepare for upcoming classes. If you’re starting a second set with the same dog and already have the text, or if you’re bringing two dogs, you’ll only need the one book. That will alter your fee structure. The text is provided at a discount cost of $20 for students. Ask if you’re unsure. The second set you attend is $189 and all subsequent sets are $168. E-transfers, cheques, or cash drop offs at the kennel are all fine. 4. WHERE:  248 Edson St in the industrial area west of the car lots at Clarence Ave and the freeway by Stonebridge. Access by going W on Melville from Clarence. 5.SAFETY a. Students will have their own stations (chairs) and will remain there while others are being coached. We have some chairs, but bringing your own may be safer. Only two persons per dog may attend any given class until we see what are numbers are so we can comply with the province’s rules regarding group sizes. b. Masks will be worn by all attendees and instructors. b. Instructors will coach from a safe distance, and students will maintain physical distancing. c. When instructors have to take a leash to demonstrate, hand sanitizer may be used. Bring some, and we’ll have some here. 6. WEATHER: Bad weather (blizzards) may prevent a class, so we will post on this page a ‘Go or No Go’ notice at least one hour before class time. Any missed class will take place on the next day of scheduled class, so students will get to attend all eight. PREPARING FOR CLASS:  If you have one, bring a folding chair, as our supply may be overburdened. 1. Wear supportive shoes. Loose clothing that blocks your view of your dog’s face is ineffective.  Don’t forget your masks; getting in will be impossible without them! 2. Bring a hungry dog. We will supply treats at class one. You will bring your own from then on. We get better learning curves if you have real meat treats and your dog has missed supper the night before class day. They can eat after class, minus the calories given as rewards at class. 3. Bring any collar you wish. We are fine with prong collars and we can show you how to use them effectively. The best leashes are leather or some material that is soft and won’t burn as it slides through your hand. Nylon and Polypropylene can be stiff and painful. Please, no chain leashes, no extending leashes, no ‘gentle leader’ type nose control devices and no harnesses. 4. Clean up materials for waste will be available, but if possible, give your dog time to ‘go’ at a location other than the training building. Accidents happen, so be prepared to deal with it by handing a leash to someone to stand on while you manage your problem. 5. Parking: This is an active warehouse, and transport semi units may arrive during class, so keep the centre area open by parking against buildings and keeping any loading doors open.
