Participants in Allentown Dog Training Club classes find relief from pandemic worries by working with their canines.
Although Macungie Memorial Hall accommodates much larger groups, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control requirements, the club has limited classes to no more than 10 dog and handler pairings, and requires all human participants to wear masks.
Even COVID-19 pandemic precautions, however, cannot dampen the training teams’ enjoyment of their time out together.
