A Message to our Clients about COVID-19
GENERAL INFORMATION RELATED TO THIS PROVINCIAL LOCK DOWN
During the past lock down, dog training had been deemed an essential service, no matter the discipline, which allowed us to remain open for classes. This time around the government has changed things up and only facilities that conduct service dog training are considered essential. While we do conduct service dog classes, it is a small part of the scope of training here at Oxford Dog Sports. This means by government order we must be closed for the 28 days.
Most classes that are in progress will pick up where we left off the week of January 25. In certain cases where there are only one or two classes remaining, a credit will be issued to utilize for future classes or workshops. Classes that were scheduled to start within this this time frame will be postponed. You will be contacted by a member of ODS staff about which situation applies to your class. Please be patient as we will have a high email volume, but we will get to everyone.
We have several workshops scheduled to happen during this time frame that will need to be moved. Our plan is to work with the facilitators to find a new date and time to offer these workshops. You will be contacted by a member of ODS staff about your workshop and new date offered and options available. Please be patient as we will have a high email volume, but we will get to everyone.
SHOWS & TRIALS
We have two ABI conformation shows scheduled in January (9th and 10th). These shows will be moved to a new date which is TBD. The UKC Nosework Trial scheduled January 16-17 is going to be cancelled as well. Please DO NOT send in entries for this show as it is cancelled, not postponed. Should you have any questions about SHOWS & TRIALS, please contact our show and trial coordinator, Nancy, at [email protected]
Please be patient in waiting for a reply. As you can see, we have a lot of re-scheduling to do, please be patient while we work through this. We are all eager to get back to what we love, and the staff looks forward to working with you and your canine family members as soon and as safe as possible.
