“Fear not – if everything goes according to plan, the wait is nearly over.”
by Sandy Weaver
It’s been a long time since Louisville was abruptly shut down, mid-cluster. It’s been a long time since those who rely on dog shows for their income have been able to do their work, and it’s been a long time since those who just love dog shows, dog sports, dog people and dog events have had a dog show fix. With the list of canceled events stretching into September, some people despair that they’ll never see a dog show again.
Fear not – if everything goes according to plan, the wait is nearly over.
Because of the urgency of the novel COVID-19 virus, many kennel clubs have cancelled their dog shows. While this is an unprecedented step for most of us, it is quite necessary if we are to stop the spread of this deadly virus.
The American Kennel Club is closely monitoring the situation surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. AKC encourages all staff, judges and exhibitors to follow the World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control’s recommendations to maintain proper hand, respiratory and personal hygiene, practice social distancing and be mindful of any and all travel restrictions/guidelines. AKC further advises that show chairs and organizers have copious amounts of hand sanitizer and hand washing stations available to participants and exhibitors.
Just a reminder:
wash hands with soap and water numerous times — 20 seconds minimum is recommended time for each washing.
