The PennVet Working Dog Center values the health and welfare of our partners and colleagues, both canine and human. During this COVID 19 crisis, the CDC is strongly encouraging event organizers and staff to prepare for the possibility of outbreaks in their communities and to create emergency plans for gatherings and community events in order to protect the health of participants and the local community. In light of the current challenges of travel and attendance facing both our participants and instructors, we have elected to postpone the Core: 3-Day Hands-on workshop that is currently scheduled 1-3 May 2020 in Philadelphia. We will be working quickly to select another weekend date for the event in late summer to early fall and will notify everyone by email and through the website when the date has been selected. Refunds will be processed for any participants who have already signed up for the workshop. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing everyone in Philadelphia in the near future. Do not hesitate to reach out via info@workingdogpractitioner.com for any questions or concerns and watch our website at www.workingdogpractitioner.com for regular updates. Stay healthy and safe!
