UPDATE APRIL 9, 2021

UPDATE: Friday April 9.  Closed 10th-18th

Hello Agility Students.

Although we are fortunate to be allowed to be teaching pet training, it is extremely stressful worrying about whether it is appropriate to be open or closed and to track everything and everyone for safety issues and protocols.

It is after a great deal of thought and consideration and reconsideration of the current status of the virus statistics and numbers that I have decided to close the school for the next week. I feel uncomfortable asking students to travel under the current status and purpose of the lockdown which is to reduce movement and risks to all.

Once we see what the next weeks virus numbers are like, I will make a decision about a second week of closure or reopen. It has been an incredibly difficult decision but the level of stress of worrying about the risks to myself and students has become too much.

The weather is improving rapidly and within a week or so, we will have the opportunity to be outside full time and more people will have had opportunities to receive vaccines.

Everyone please stay safe and healthy and be ready for a summer of Dog Training and Agility Fun! Closed Saturday April 10th to Friday April 16.

Any questions or concerns please email. Thank you for your continued patience while we all navigate the challenges we are presented with due to this Covid crisis.

Wednesday April 7, 2021.

Morning Star Classes are a mix of indoor and outdoor classes at this time.  Students must be symptom free of any covid, must not have travelled out of province and must not have had to isolate for any reason due to Covid health issues in order to attend any classes at Morning Star. 

A reminder that when attending Classes, all students must wear masks indoors and May choose to do so outdoors.  Three ply preferred. Please put your mask on before entering the indoor Classroom area and leave it on for class duration. Reminder it must cover your mouth and nose so please wear proper size to suit your face and keep nose covered.

Please do not attend classes if you are unwell, are in isolation whether self imposed or required by infection, are exhibiting any Covid symptoms of fever, cold etc... or have been in close contact with anyone at risk of Covid.

We will continue to endure and appreciate our opportunities to resume safe work and play with our dogs and classmates.

Outdoor Classes will shortly resume full time as the weather permits.

General Update. DECEMBER 2020 It is unlikely that any New Group Classes will begin before next year due to Covid concerns and current full classes. One hour private sessions can be booked. Times are limited and maximum two hours per Family. Single Hour bookings for Behavior, Agility, Obedience or Puppy. If you would like to combine any two subjects, example Behavior discussions as well as Agility, etc... then a two hour session will need to be booked. Many Classes for the New Year are already full. If you have a young Dog or Puppy with no previous Training, yourself or dog, I would strongly encourage you to book a private session while your dog is still between the ages of 10 weeks and 12 months. This is a very critical learning and shaping period for your dog to ensure a well balanced family Pet. Bookings will be limited and Day Times Monday to Friday ideally.

Come and See the New Facility. Book a 30 minute tour to see how every dog can find a way to Play! Nose Work for ALL! Work with regulation Scents for the competition Student or just play with your Pet Dog with Food and watch how naturally every Dog enjoys the sport. See the Agility and Puppy Teaching zones. View the Trails. Consider booking Day Trainer Spots where you can drop off your Dog and let the experienced Trainer train your Dog. The Pool will soon be ready too. After much requests a short dock for Dock Diving Practice will be installed or just book a swim for Aqua exercise for your Dog!
