Latest C0vid-19 Bulletins…

Jan 2021  Well we will move into tier 4 again meaning that once again we will be unable to reopen the club for courses and classes.
We can only express our disappointment that we can not deliver the training to the people and dogs booked on to courses that we are unable to run.
We will defer the start of these courses until such a time as we are allowed to reopen and when it is safe to do so.
For the people who have puppies, they will of course be considerably older than they would have been, but this is OK and they will still be receptive to training. If you are experiencing any issues please let us know and I will do my best to advise you. Some one to ones could possibly be arranged.

28.11.2020 After considering the restrictions imposed by the Government for the current lockdown due to come into force on December 2nd, and after seeking advice from the Kennel Club UK, the decision to keep the club closed has been implemented by our governing committee.
Everyone who was booked onto the Puppy courses and Pre-Beginner courses will now be moved to January 4th or 5th 2021.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
We look forward to seeing you in the New Year

02.11.2020 After considering the restrictions imposed by the Government for the current lockdown due to come into force on Thursday, and after seeking advice from the Kennel Club UK, the decision to close the club from today has been implemented by our governing committee.

We have a Pre-Beginner Course and two KC Puppy Foundation Courses planned to start tonight and Tuesday, but in the light of the lockdown restrictions we have decided to postponed these until the end of the lockdown period.

We have chosen to do this so that there is continuity within the courses rather than starting now for one week and then finishing and having to pick it up again in four weeks time. We believe that this is the best way forward for our clients.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by the lockdown and we will continue to monitor the regulations to see if it would be possible to reopen sooner, given the existing precautions that we currently have in place.
We hope all our members and clients stay safe and well and we will look forward to seeing you at the end of lockdown.
Best Wishes,
John   KCAI (CD) BIPDTP
Chairman CDTC
