Statement Update: (20th May 2020)
First and foremost, we would like to thank our Found By The Hound community for your ongoing support during these uncertain times. Found By The Hound is working to adapt in order to protect the health and welfare of our clients, our team, our families and the community.
The safety of our clients is of the utmost importance, therefore Found By The Hound have heeded the advice of Government Health Officials and have implemented additional measures to alleviate risks. As information is provided to us, we continue to ensure we are adhering to all regulations pertaining to social distancing.
Our reason for beginning Found By The Hound was to help strengthen the bond between owner and dog and we will do our best to continue this under the strict new circumstances. We will continue to operate whilst it is still safe to do so. We are currently developing new ways to deliver our Found By The Hound message and endeavour to continue helping our community reach their training goals.
We will update you as changes are made.
Please see below the measures we are taking and the new developments we are introducing to our scope of services during this time.
Anthea, Sarah and the Found By The Hound Team
WHAT WE ARE DOING:
PUPPY KINDY COURSE
As of May 23rd 2020 Found By The Hound will resume group style Puppy Training. Unlike our traditional Puppy Kindy Course, these lessons will take place outdoors at our private Upper Coomera and Tallebudgera locations and will run over 4 weeks. We can accept 5 puppies per group and 2 people per puppy. Although restrictions have eased, we still have a responsibility to our clients and must adhere to all social distancing regulations.
Typically, Puppy Kindy is carried out in small Veterinary waiting rooms. We have a responsibility to our Clients and to the Vets that host our Training Groups to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Our traditional Puppy Kindy Course will begin as soon as it is safe to do so.
K9 PRIMARY SCHOOL
As of June 3rd 2020, K9 Primary School will resume at the German Club. While our K9 Primary School classes are conducted outside, these venues are predominately school grounds which are yet to grant access. Until such time, K9 Primary School will be available at this location only and bookings will be limited to adhere to social distancing regulations.
Private Lessons will still go on as normal. These lessons are conducted in an outdoor space on the private property of our Trainers. We operate Private Training Lessons at our Upper Coomera and Tallebudgera Valley locations.
CLIENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ATTEND TRAINING SHOULD YOU BE INCLUDED IN ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
- BEEN OVERSEAS OR INTERSTATE WITHIN THE LAST 14 DAYS
- FEELING UNWELL OR SICK (INCLUDING FEVER, COUGHING, SORE THROAT, FATIGUE, OR SHORTNESS OF BREATH)
- BEEN IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH A CONFIRMED CASE OF COVID-19
While our Private Lessons will continue as normal, we have been developing exciting new methods of delivery so that we can continue to provide Training and insight.
Please continue to show your support by following our journey online. It will be through our social media platforms and newsletter that our community will be able to stay updated with the latest from Found By The Hound.
