personal message to my customers:
As a business owner it is imperative I abide by all pertinent laws of the country, state and county in
which I do business as well as ensuring that all customers attending classes abide by those same pertinent laws as well.
In the Spring of 2020 at the onset of covid-19, amidst uncertainty, lockdowns, quarantines and safety
concerns I sought advice from my insurance company, attorney, medical professionals and law enforcement in both Nampa and
Meridian - the two locations classes are offered.
I was advised by all of them unanimously to abide by state/county laws and require that of my customers attending
class do as well.
I reached out to them
once more when scheduling my classes for 2021 and was again advised exactly the same.
I do understand and respect that there is contradictory information and varying opinions on the
efficacy of wearing masks, gloves, social distancing, vaccines, etc. and data can be found supporting almost all views.
It is outside my purview to supersede
any state or county laws and make additional requirements other than what are set by the state of Idaho and the county/city
in which I teach.
In this situation, as just your dog trainer -- I am France!
I have been incredibly
blessed so far this year and all of last year by the flexibilty, graciousness and understanding shown by all of you as we've
navigated through this upheaval. What would have been an incredibly stressful time as a business owner with classes being
delayed, shifted around, locations moved, limited attendance, waiting lists on classes, etc has been almost seamless and I
have all of you to thank for that!
