Kennel Cough: A letter to our clients from Eric Smith, K-Nine founder

By K-Nine Solutions on May 27, 2019 in in News

Recently there has been an outbreak of "kennel cough" in some of the dogs staying at the Ranch. While not serious if caught early, it can be very contagious and take time to treat. Much like human Upper Respiratory Illnesses (URI), "kennel cough" is just a catch-all name for any URI a dog may acquire. In humans we tend to call this "bronchitis," but the causes and treatments are very similar.

Dear K-Nine Clients,

We have closed the training facility to private lessons temporarily due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, we are still open and doing business online and off-site. The changes surrounding this public health situation have come at us all very rapidly and we are doing our best to adapt and overcome the challenges we are all facing. We wish to thank you in advance for your patience with us as we work to re-schedule and switch our business model to one that practices Social Distancing and takes advantage of self-quarantine. So, for the time being, all in-person transfer sessions and 1 on 1 appointments are going to be held via Zoom.

We are going to be offering some new services that should accommodate many of your other needs. See below for details. As always, you are free to call, Instant Message, Text or email us with any questions, for help you may need with your dog. Please keep an eye on your email for updates and details on how to access our services.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and consideration and look forward to being able to continue to serve you.

With much gratitude ~ Eric
