COVID-19 Guidelines for Dogwood Training Center

As of 9/13/21


Due to the recent changes in guidelines from the CDC and the State of Ohio some of the restrictions here at Dogwood have been altered.  The updated guidelines are as follows:


< Masks are not required when outdoors on the Dogwood property however 6’ social distancing is still required.


< Masks are required when indoors in any Dogwood building. The only exception would be folks renting the agility arena.  You may remove your mask when indoors working alone.


< Barn Hunt students will continue to wait their turn outside of the garage so that the person working a dog and the instructor are the only ones in the building.  One additional person will be permitted in the garage for purposes of observation and videotaping of person working. All persons in the garage must be masked at all times.


< All persons are asked to sanitize their hands upon entering the Training Building or the garage.  Hand sanitizer is provided in both locations or you may use your own upon exit of your vehicle.


< Weather permitting, the doors in the garage will remain open so that your need to make

    contact with door handles is minimized.


< In between all classes/lessons/rentals all frequently touched surfaces will be sanitized.


< The Port-a-Potty will be sanitized regularly.


< Crates in the crate room remain available for use by students however it is asked that you

   minimize the number of crates that you use in order to minimize Sally’s need to sanitize all

   crate doors after each use.


< The seating areas, both in the observation room and arena, have been arranged to allow for

    proper distancing per State guidelines.  Maintain a distance of 6’ between you and all

    other persons AT ALL TIMES.


< Agility Class sizes are being limited to 4 persons in order to allow proper distancing.

   Building Rentals are limited to one person or persons of the same household.
