Virtual Puppy Raising Course
Raising Your Pandemic Puppy
Did you get a puppy only to find that COVID-19 stomped out your chances of getting him or her into puppy class? Are you worried your pup is missing out on proper training during a critical developmental window?
Let Fetch Please Dog Training help with our new Virtual Puppy Raising During a Pandemic Course! You’ll get weekly training video that are readily available to you whenever YOUR schedule allows it. You’ll have the opportunity to join one live session per week to practice and demonstrate skills without the distraction of other dogs in the same room, plus a Q and A with the trainer. Best part? You don’t have to leave the comfort of your home for lessons!
For $140, and with just a few clicks, you can get your puppy started on the right paw even in the middle of a pandemic.
The materials for the next 6-week course will be available starting July 6th. Call or email Fetch Please today to sign-up!
School has never been so fun
COVID - 19 PROTOCOLS:
Based off a statement made by the World Health Organization, we do not feel there is reason to be concerned for dogs transferring COVID-19 to each other or to humans they come in contact with. "[There is] no evidence that companion animals play a significant role in the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals which may compromise their welfare."
Masks will be a requirement to enter the training facility
You will be expected to maintain at least a 6 foot distance from other class participants (really it will be 12ft considering dogs and leashes)
There will be hand sanitizer next to the door - please sanitize upon arrival and before exiting
Our assistant will punch your card for you upon entry
The door and/or garage door will be open at the start of class so everyone can be seen while entering, allowing us to avoid crowding at the door.
The doors may remain open during class (weather depending) in order to get maximum air flow in the facility. This means you will need to be all the more vigilant about maintaining control of you dog
The trainer will not be handling your leash at any time, nor will we be practicing greetings closer than 6 ft.
Please bring your own treats and treat bag
If you or a household member are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, fever, headache, chills, sore throat, muscle ache or loss of taste or smell) PLEASE stay home and contact your doctor.
Rest assured, we will be cleaning and sanitizing between each class.
Let us help improve your animal-owner relationship. Training improves communication between you and your pet, builds your bond, and creates a confident canine. Email or call Fetch Please in order to reserve your spot.
Puppy Play Time
Proper socialization is KEY in helping your puppy develop into a strong and confident dog. Our Puppy Play Time class helps accomplish the socialization goals set by AKC's STAR Puppy Program, and get your puppy's zoomies worked out before participating in a group training session.
Participating dogs must:
Have a clean bill of health for every play date
Have at least 2nd round of shots
Be 3-5 months old
Clients will be required to bring their puppy in beforehand to show shot records and allow the trainer to evaluate the puppies play level.
Puppies who participate in at least 6 play times and accomplish basic puppy training goals will be eligible to earn their STAR Puppy Certificate from AKC.
See AKC page for more details.
Puppy Play (limited to puppies under 5 months old): Cards have 6 punches available for $60. A puppy upgrade can be added to any other group class punch card.
Puppy Play and COVID-19
We are currently offering a limited puppy play opportunity. Play sessions will be held weekly at our facility, starting at 9a. This is NOT a drop in class. Puppy parents will be required to follow the guidelines below in order to participate:
confirm attendance by 9a on Fridays. Classes will be limited to 4 human participants outside of the trainer, so participants must contact the trainer beforehand to reserve a spot. (only 1 owner per puppy may join)
As always, puppy temperament must be evaluated beforehand, either via zoom or phone, and shot records must be provided in order to participate.
Upon arrival, all human participants must be wearing a mask, and will be instructed to apply provided hand sanitizer, wear provided gloves and do their best to maintain 6 ft distance from other human participants.
Call to schedule a brief evaluation with a trainer and to reserve a spot.
