With the move to step 3 of the covid 19 roadmap the Gippsland branch has received approval to re-open on the condition that all government regulations can be complied with. There will be restrictions on the number of people in groups which we should be able to comply with by using our split training program that we were using after the last lock down. So here is a bit of information to get you started
Reopening: Saturday 19th September
Training Times:
10:00am – 10:45am
Puppy, Class 1 & Class 2
11:15am – 12:00pm
Class 3 & Class 4
*for the first week at least there is no scheduled tracking/nose work program
Canteen will be closed until further notice
Masks MUST be worn by everyone in accordance with Government requirements. NO MASK NO TRAINING. Please remember that with everyone wearing a mask your dog may react differently to its surroundings so it is more important than ever to follow the rules (Don’t approach a dog without asking the handler, keep your dog between 10-2 in front of you so you can see what they are doing, all dogs on lead at all times unless under the direction of an Instructor etc)
If you have any questions please contact the Branch Manager


What Can You Do and Learn?

Training is fun, and your dog is rewarded throughout the training session.
Rewards can be food, a favourite toy or object or verbal praise. Make sure you bring any or all of them each week.
