CHADKIRK DOG TRAINING CLUB

UPDATE 14th September 2020

The club Committee has been reviewing the recent changes from Central Government in relation to the recent increase in infection rates for CV-19.

We are confident that the club is within the permitted activities and that the precautions we have in place in relation to social distancing and hygiene are in line with recommendations from government and health agencies.

We are open and running our courses and classes as outlined in previous posts, but should you require more information or clarification on anything above please contact us.

 
GREAT NEWS
Wednesday and Thursday flyball/agility classes will resume from Wednesday 9th September.
THIS IS ONLY FOR OUR REGULAR MEMBERS.
A new class will be the Open Obedience class which starts on September 8th at 8.15 – 9.30 pm. Again only for current members.
You will need to pay your yearly membership and the class fee which is £6.00
You will need to stick to your usual day.
If you can please one member per dog.
It will be on a first come first served basis only due to Covid 19 restrictions.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING THE CORRECT MONEY.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
Regards,
Chadkirk Dog Training Committee.

Coronavirus Update!

We have been trying to keep up with the rapid changes that are happening due to an upturn in new Coronavirus cases. We believe that the precautions we have in place meet the current legislation and safety requirements. Given this our courses will be running on Monday and Tuesday.

At this stage the wearing of face coverings is optional but from the 8th of August it looks like these will have to be compulsory, but we will continue to monitor the situation and legislation in order that we can keep our clients, and volunteers as safe as possible.

Further updates as more changes come into play.

Hello everyone, well we have started to make plans for our return to training. We will be looking to get back in July for the Puppy and pre-beginner courses. We have yet to set a date as we are monitoring government guidelines and need to be able to have more than 6 people, and be able to train indoors! But things are moving in the right direction and we are all looking forward to welcoming our members back and to helping all our client who sign up for our courses. Take care, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you as soon as WE can do so safely.

 

Following tonight’s committee meeting we are following Government guidelines to prevent gatherings where there is a higher risk of contracting/spreading corona virus, Covid-19. To this end all classes and courses have been suspended until further notice.
We have not taken this decision lightly and we are sorry and disappointed to have to do so, but we have a duty of care to our clients and all the volunteers who run the club.
If you are currently on a course or were about to start a course, this has just been deferred and we will continue when this pandemic is over and it is safe to do so.
If we can be of help with your training during this time please let us know via our Web pages and we will do our best to get back to you and help with your dog related issues.
I will keep you posted from time to time should there be any further developments.
So keep practicing/training and we will look forward to seeing you all again, hopefully in the not to distant future.
Take care, look after yourselves (and others) and your dogs.
With our best wishes from all at Chadkirk Dog Training Club.
