We will start our next set of classes on July 5th for ALL levels, meeting 2X per week on Mondays and Thursday evenings. HOW TO REGISTER:     1.Pick A CLASS TIME:  Times are shown in the blue ‘Registration’ box at the top of this page. 2. REGISTER: Students will be required to Pre- Register. The arrival of the registration form only indicates your interest. You should send your class fee, as that’s what inserts you into the class 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:  Buena Vista Kennels.  Go S on Clarence Ave then left on Hill St. (2nd left after the Willow’s Golf Course). Turn into the 2nd acreage on the left side of Hill St. 5.SAFETY - We’re expecting changes as our Health department catches up with science,  but for now, we’ll go with these conditions. 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 one person 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. If you have a NECESSITY to bring another, please contact us in advance. 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 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 area. 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: There is plenty of parking in front of the kennel building, and around the curved driveway north of the kennel. Park on the grass between any two trees. You can also enter by the driveway on Middleton Rd.

CDC COVID INFO When    someone    who    has    COVID-19    coughs    or    exhales    they    release droplets   of   infected   fluid.   Most   of   these   droplets   fall   on   nearby   surfaces and objects - such as desks, tables or telephones. People could   catch   COVID-19   by   touching   contaminated   surfaces   or   objects   and   then   touching   their   eyes,   nose   or   mouth,but   this   isn’t   thought   to   be   the main   way   the   virus   spreads.   Spread   from   touching   surfaces   is   not   thought to be a common way that COVID-19 spreads COVID-19   is   thought   to   spread   mainly   through   close   contact   rom   person to   person,   including   between   people   who   are   physically   near   each   other (within   about   6   feet).   People   who   are   infected   but   do   not   show   symptoms can   also   spread   the   virus   to   others.   Cases   of   reinfection   with   COVID-19     have   been   reported   but   are   rare .   We   are   still   learning   about   how   the   virus spreads and the severity of illness it causes. There   is   evidence   that   under   certain   conditions,   people   with   COVID-19 seem   to   have   infected   others   who   were   more   than   6   feet   away.   These transmissions    occurred    within    enclosed    spaces    that    had    inadequate ventilation.    Sometimes    the    infected    person    was    breathing    heavily,    for example while singing or exercising. Under    these    circumstances,    scientists    believe    that    the    amount    of infectious    smaller    droplet    and    particles    produced    by    the    people    with COVID-19 became concentrated enough to spread the virus to   other   people.   The   people   who   were   infected   were   in   the   same   space during the same time or shortly after the person with COVID-19 had left.    Available   data   indicate   that   it   is   much   more   common   for   the   virus   that causes   COVID-19   to   spread   through   close   contact   with   a   person   who   has COVID-19 than through airborne transmission.
We need newspapers (not flyers) for our next litters of puppies. If you have any, we’d love to recycle them for you!

Most of these droplets fall on nearby surfaces and objects - such as desks, tables or telephones. People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects – and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth, but this isn’t thought to be the main way the virus spreads. Spread from touching surfaces is not thought to be a common way that COVID-19 spreads COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person to person, including between people who are physically near each other (within about 6 feet). People who are infected but do not show symptoms can also spread the virus to others. Cases of reinfection with COVID-19  have been reported but are rare . We are still learning about how the virus spreads and the severity of illness it causes.   There is evidence that under certain conditions, people with COVID-19 seem to have infected others who were more than 6 feet away. These transmissions occurred within enclosed spaces that had inadequate ventilation. Sometimes the infected person was breathing heavily, for example while singing or exercising. Under these circumstances, scientists believe that the amount of infectious smaller droplet and particles produced by the people with COVID-19 became concentrated enough to spread the virus to other people. The people who were infected were in the same space during the same time or shortly after the person with COVID-19 had left.  Available data indicate that it is much more common for the virus that causes COVID-19 to spread through close contact with a person who has COVID-19 than through airborne transmission.
