Coronavirus update: 1st November 2020
Sadly we are being forced to close again from Thursday 5th November for a month at least for lockdown no 2. Very upsetting after all our hard work to be covid secure, ￼however keeping the vulnerable safe and well is hopefully the outcome.
We can, however, offer limited online classes. Or a one off sesion can be arranged to help with problem behaviour.
Also discussions/ special classes on;
Walking on loose lead and approaching people and other dogs!
Stealing- eating unwanted items.
Not jumping up.
These would be in the form of you watching live video presentation putting your comments and questions in a text box if any of you are interested. Please contact us for more information.
Take Care everyone.

When live classes are permitted at Waggytails, we will be following strict safety guidelines. We will be taking your temperature, asking you to wear a mask on entry (not during class) and everyone will have a designated training bay to maximise social distancing. We have clean downs between each class and ask you to use hand sanitiser. We have spent a lot of time doing a deep clean, installing a new kitchen and putting all our safety measures in place. We hope you will see a huge difference at Waggytails inside and out. We have had several volunteers who have worked extremely hard giving up so much of their time and energy to help us. This will see us going forward for many years with a cleaner, brighter future.
We will be limiting all classes to 6 dogs and allow one person to attend with the handler if they wish. We will have training bays that will give each handler a space to train, a chair for extra and to place coats bags etc. Wherever possible the class will be held outside; if the weather is bad and we need to use the hall we have designated training bays inside as well to keep everyone safe.
Agility, no matter what the weather, will need to be outside in the sand area for the foreseeable future.
Each class will last 45mins to give the instructor time to wipe the clean the area etc, for the carpark to clear before the next class. When the more vulnerable wish to start returning to classes we will have a max of 4 handlers in a class allowing 1 extra person with them. Please contact Sheena when you are ready.
Meanwhile online classes are continuing, so you can still train even if you can't come to Waggytails! We hope you are all keeping safe and well and look forward to seeing you all very soon. Thank you.
