We are experiencing some very unprecedented things currently. Please be assured that any of the teams that needed to renew by June 30, 2020 will not be penalized for not getting your paperwork in to be evaluated. This may possibly extend for all renewals for the rest of the year. ...........We are in unknown territories and until we know a bit more from our government leaders as to how things will start to return to normal, we will be in a wait and see mode. Once teams can visit again and if it’s past your expiration date, we will send you letters of extension to carry with you until we can schedule your Express Renewal. No team will be disqualified from visiting because of the time delay for their renewal because of COVID-19.


Please remember to work with your pets to keep them sharp on their visiting behaviors so they will be ready once we begin visiting again.


When things open again, we want all our teams and all our teams in training to be confident in their knowledge and skills and ready to move forward as quickly as possible.   Our community will have great need for the comfort that WAGS can bring to them.”


For teams waiting to be evaluated we still must wait and see when we can schedule evaluations once we return to “normal”.


I know there are some waiting to take the 101 class. While you have this extra time you may want to jot down any questions you may have or mark in your book what you have questions about. You can email them to Martha, and we can answer them ahead of time. We may need to offer 101 as an opportunity through Zoom. We are exploring options as we can move forward.


Please stay safe.
