Dog infections of virus update in Central Texas.

The President of the American Veterinary Medical Association says owners shouldn’t be fearful of pets contracting the virus because it is rare.

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 on the CDC’s website.

We love your dogs and our highest priority is keeping everyone involved in their training safe.  It goes without saying; Fetch Worthy Trainer will always wear a mask at all lessons. 

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