Here's how our club is meeting the challenge of Covid-19 .
We are all facing difficult challenges during Covid-19, and Titahi Bay Canine Obedience Club is no exception. While we're all doing the right thing by keeping our distance and playing our part in the fight against Covid-19, our committee is aware that during lockdown our pups were continuing to grow and learn and were missing out on the benefits of our classes. We feel very protective of the health of our members and trainers but also wanted to make sure that no-one missed out on those essential early-learning opportunities, so we decided to run a shortened Term 2.
Now that we are out of lockdown our normal terms have resumed, but we are still being mindful of social distancing and correct hygiene practices. Please continue to stay away from class if you are feeling unwell; we are happy to provide you with support in your training by phone and email if you are unable to get to class.
To protect everyone's health and well-being we will be taking the following precautions:
Everyone is to be at least 2 metres apart - dogs, handlers and instructors - at all times.
No sharing of treats, toys, leads - anything.
No-one is to come if they are unwell.
A class attendance log will be filled in (to assist with contact tracing).
Dogs must be on leads at all times.
Dog-safe hand sanitiser is provided on all our training grounds.
These protocols will be updated as further guidelines from Dogs NZ and the NZ Government are released.
