COVID-19 Notice

Fetch Worthy Commitment to Safety

UPDATE:

In response to the new CDC Guidelines, those that are fully vaccinated according to the new guidelines may choose to not wear a mask. We practice social distancing and spend time outside for lessons when possible regardless. If children or other household members are not yet fully vaccinated, we ask to wear a mask. Inquire at the time of your lessons. We will work together to keep everyone safe.

Owner and Dog Trainer, Shelly Haines, is fully vaccinated since Feb. 2021, and will continue to follow the CDC Guidelines.

Some coronaviruses that infect animals can be spread to people and then spread between people, but this is rare. Please find answers to frequently asked questions on this topic.

We encourage everyone to safely properly socialize their puppies.

The Health and Safety of Our Worldwide Pet Homes Are of Utmost Importance

We are utilizing all best practices recommended by the CDC and WHO to minimize and remove opportunities for infection.

  • Virtual training options, and small class size.

  • We do not enter into clients’ homes without permission.
  • We bring our own walking equipment and leash. 
  • We do not need to touch your belongings.
  • ​We do not travel or visit high-risk areas.
