We will work to maintain social distancing and limit in the extreme interactions between people, teaching from a distance and modeling techniques. Class participants are not mandated to wear masks by may if it is their preference. We may limit class to one person per puppy/dog so that social space is easier to maintain. This will be handled on an as needed basis. We will do all we can to meet you where you are. Watch for future updates.

Why does the ticket price above indicate that it’s free?

We’re leveraging many of the cool features of Eventbrite. But, not their fee collection one. Why? ‘Cause they charge for that. And, we’re trying to keep your costs down by keeping our costs down.
