As we return back to groups classes there are some changes to Cunningshot that we would all like to make everyone aware of.
Firstly exciting news. We have taken on trainer Helena Woodfield to support and assist Natasha in obedience and Dog Sports for both group session and 1-2-1’s.
Secondly as we return to more face to face contact there will be some changes to communication channels.
All WhatsApp groups will cease apart from academy groups which will split into Gundogs and dog sports to assist those clients on monthly packages.
All clients not on packages will still be able to train with us and will be able to book group classes and one to ones still. Groups will be payable in advance and one to ones are able to be booked ad hoc. These clients will be placed in their training groups on the wix app.
Please can all clients new and existing please be aware that Cunningshot is closed on a Monday and Tuesday. The trainers will now have their work phones off and we ask that you do not message them using forms of social media that they can see from their personal phones. The trainers use this time to relax after training all weekend and also to plan sessions, do our own CPD and train our own dogs. We ask that you try not to contact us these days. Natasha also doesn’t work Saturdays. Can I also gently remind clients to be aware of timings of messages being sent to us we ask that clients try not to message late evening and early morning messages, phone calls, emails and social media messages, and also allow us appropriate time to reply. We will also be mindful of this as well.
Moving forward clients with extra training needs outside of the groups will be asked to book one to ones with trainers as we cannot successfully give you advice on many behaviours without seeing you and the dog, we are always happy to see progression videos and to give feedback and advise where we can but some training advice needs to be done face to face. So please respect the trainers advice when we do ask you to book in to assist your needs.
Lastly we cannot wait to have you all back at training please remember we are still under covid restrictions and we know you are all excited to see each other but trainers will be ensuring covid restrictions are met in classes and in the car parks so please remember to sanitise and keep your distances. There will be 15 minute cross overs between classes again and we ask that unless you need a trainer, need food or equipment that you try to leave after your lesson as quickly as possible and you ensure that you arrive on time.
We will be releasing class lists soon. Anyone definitely interested in coming back to groups can they please let us know ASA. Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
