COVID19 regulations

In order to comply with the New Jersey executive orders re COVID-19 limiting indoor gatherings, we ask that only one member per family attend orientations and classes. The person attending may take videos of any and all lessons and share all the paperwork they are given with other family members.  This is surely not ideal since we recognize owning a dog is a family affair but we must put everyone's health and wellbeing first and foremost.  Thank you for your compliance and cooperation.
