COVID-19 Update for Alaska Dog Works
Earlier today you may have received an emergency phone call from Gov. Dunleavy. In that YouTube broadcast the Governor outlined the increase in COVID-19 positive cases here in Alaska and asked businesses and individuals to return to a voluntary quarantine much like we did back in March of this year.
In March, Alaska Dog Works opted to shut down and move our services to Zoom and Virtual courses. After three weeks we decided to slowly reopen and returned to full services in-person on May 1st. At this time, we will be making accommodations for our clientele on an as needed basis. In other words, we shall continue to provide our services in-person practicing social distancing and mask wearing. We prefer to conduct classes outdoors but as we all understand it is winter in Alaska and working outside is not always the best option.
If you have been exposed to or have tested positive, please inform us immediately and accommodations will be made to your program.
Any client that choses to utilize Zoom classes from today November 12th through December 5th will not have that class count against their program. In other words, we will resume your classes once the voluntary quarantine mandate is removed.
Everyone here at Alaska Dog Works wants to continue to provide you with quality dog training services while maintaining healthy lifestyles. Limit the amount of people you allow to touch your dog just as you did back in March, wash your hands often, wipe down your dog after he has been around people that our outside of your family social circles. This is directed mostly at our service and therapy dog clients. For those of you practicing your training with environmental socialization, you can continue to partake in field trips just limit touching by strangers. Your dog will still benefit from seeing people and learning how to be patient when greeting people even without any petting.
