DSK classes

We are committed to following all

CDC Covid protocols. 

Check out our Master Schedule for our full slate of classes!

DSK is now back at full strength! 
New classes now on the calendar!

 

While we’re in the process of completing class sessions that were in progress when the shutdown happened in March,

we now have posted start dates for all our classes! (If you were in class during the shutdown, reach out to your instructor for information about completing that class.) 

 

Each student is integral to the success of the reopening of DSK, and we need everyone's participation

for this to succeed. Here’s what to expect when you come back:

 

First and most important, please don’t come back if you’re ill, think you might be ill, or have any reason to think you may have been exposed to Covid-19. As long as you let us know, we’ll work with you to arrange make-ups. 

• Only one client per dog may attend (except for minors, with whom one parent may attend). 

• All students, and instructors, must wear face coverings, except when running the agility course in the back room. Face coverings must cover both the mouth and nose. This is for everyone’s protection. 

• You must maintain a minimum six-foot distance from your instructor, other students, and dogs at all times.

• Wash your hands often, for at least 20 seconds. 

• Use hand sanitizer or wash your hands if you touch commonly touched surfaces or equipment, including door knobs, gates, training equipment, and the like. 

• Crates, chairs, and water bowls won't be provided, so bring your own — and use only your own.

• Students who have multiple dogs may use designated crates with the instructor's approval, but must disinfect those crates both before and after use. 

• Training aids brought from home will be handled by clients only.

• Arrive no earlier than ten minutes prior to class start time to potty your dog. 

• Wait for your instructor to let you into the building for your class.

• The kitchen and grooming areas are now for DSK staff use only and are off limits to all others.

• We strongly encourage you to use your own bathroom at home before arriving. DSK restrooms will be available, but we ask you to spray/clean all surfaces (door knobs, toilet handle, sink knobs/handles, light switches) after use.

• You must review and sign our waiver to attend.

 

Please work with us to make this reopening a success. We've missed you and look forward to having you and your dogs back here with us again!
