Covid 19

Please follow these guidelines during private lessons and Ring Rentals 

Since the Safer at Home Order went into effect, we have spent time working to establish a new normal at Smarty Paws.  We take the safety and health of our students very seriously.  We have an extraordinary group of students and instructors at Smarty Paws and are relying on everyone's participation to make this work.

  • Here are some of the modifications on how classes will function:

  • Alternate parking spots to practice social distancing

  • Arrive 10 minutes early to class

  • If an earlier class is present, wait in your car until your instructor comes out and tells you to enter the building

  • Please practice social distancing when entering the building (an automatic door has been installed to avoid the need to touch the door.

Student traffic will flow in one direction - enter at the main door and exit through the side door in the arena by the large garage door.

Crating areas will be clearly marked on the wall in the arena and will be approximately 4' x 4' and separated by 6'.  You can also crate from your car.

Bring only what you need, crate, chair, treats, toys, water bowls.  No crates, chairs or training aids will be provided by Smarty Paws.

To keep classes small, no guests will be allowed.  If you are under 15, one adult may accompany you.

Students are required to wear face masks on the premises and while in the building at all times.  This includes the time you are running with and training your dog.

Surfaces will be sanitized between classes by the instructor.

We will provide hand sanitizer for use after touching common surfaces or equipment.

Payments will be by credit card or check only.

All students must sign a waiver.

REMINDER:  Please wash your hands often, avoid touching your face, and stay 6 feet apart from other students, the instructor, and the dogs.  We ask that you stay at home if you are sick.  Any student who is diagnosed with the Coronavirus should contact their instructor immediately.
