Training Starts Back Up This Weekend!
We’re excited to announce that both locations of What a Great Dog! Training Centers will reopen for training starting Saturday, May 2nd. We are taking every precaution to provide the safest environment possible so that you can confidently attend class.  

There are two especially notable changes being made. First, we will require everyone, both staff and clients to wear face masks while in the building. Also, schedules are being reworked to reduce the number of people in the facility at one time. 

Due to these changes, some classes have been cancelled or moved. If you are enrolled in a class scheduled to start May 1 - May 18, you will receive an email soon explaining the plan for your class. We ask that you respond to that email letting us know if you plan to attend, as scheduled.

The details of our safety precautions are listed here:

  • Everyone in the building (staff members and clients) will be required to wear face masks or face shields.

  • The number of people scheduled to be in the facility is reduced.
  • Fewer classes are scheduled and start times are staggered.
  • Clients are asked to limit the number of family members attending to a maximum of 2 people per class enrollment. 
  • We will not schedule seminars or other special events during this time.

  • Social distancing will be supported, even beyond our normal, spacious set-up.
  • Class sizes will be reduced.
  • Double blinds will be used between stations to create a buffer zone.
  • All group classes will work with blinds in place to support social distancing.
  • Disposable stylus pens are available for signing liability waivers.
  • Facility adjustments have been made to support flow and distancing.
  • Signage in the facilities to support social distancing and safety.

  • A heightened cleaning protocol is in place.
  • Training rings will be disinfected (chairs, gates, blinds) between every class.
  • Common areas (handles, counters, restrooms, etc) will be disinfected at least once every 2 hours.

We thank you for your continued support, and we hope to see you and your pups at WAGD soon.
