OCC Child Policy
Children and Families at OCC
With a Family Membership, families are invited to attend classes with their puppy/dog so that all can learn from the training experience. OCC is family-friendly but dog-focused.
Additional guests should strive to not be a distraction to the other dogs in attendance. Children 14 and over are welcome as handlers in our classes but must be accompanied by an adult (over 21), preferably a parent. Children under 14 are welcome in our classes; however, this is up to the individual instructor of the class as some classes are not adequately staffed, the exercises are too complicated for safety issues, or the classes are of such a make-up that the class itself may not be appropriate for younger children (i.e. large Beginner classes or Reactivity). Each Instructor shall have final approval over allowing children in their class; this approval may be revoked at any time if the children cause a disruption or are not adequately supervised.
We recommend that an additional adult attend class solely for the purpose of supervising children under the age of 9 during the class while the other adult dog-handler is dog-focused.
