Rules for Green Acres Kennel Shop Online Classes
- We strongly encourage you to take your dog out for a bathroom break before the class starts so that you do not need to leave the presentation to attend to your dog.
- If this will be your first time attending a Green Acres online course, we encourage you to log in early. Don will be online at least 15-minutes before your classes scheduled start time to assist you and answer questions.
- It is your option to turn on or turn off your video camera.
- The class will be recorded.
- Recordings of your Green Acres Kennel Shop online classes may be downloaded and viewed for your personal use. The recordings are copyrighted and not to be shared or distributed. These files will be deleted and no longer available one month after your last session.
- Please turn off devices like a TV, radio, or anything else that could produce a sound that could be carried over your microphone when you are not on mute.
- Please make sure you are located away from people or pets that might add background noise.
- Please remain muted unless speaking.
- If you can use a headset with a microphone, it can reduce feedback and extraneous noise for other participants.

- Due to the way their internet works, their can be lag times between when you say something and others hear it.
