Coronavirus Update

Training in small groups and with social distancing will begin for members only.

WC/ WCX test will take place, but with some modifications so that we do not have too many people on property at the same time.  Details will be sent to participants and workers.  There will not be a potluck meal after the test.
We will not have everyone arrive at same time and we will let dog run land then water.  If it passes the ribbon and certificate will be given at that time. The handler and dog may leave soon after they are done. We want to minimize the number of people on the property at once.  In Indiana 25 people can be on private property at the same time.  We do not expect to have that many at once.  Social distancing and safety will be maintained.
