FVDTC Tracking Needs You!
FVDTC’s annual tracking test is in the weekend of September 10 &11 at Burlington Prairie Forest Preserve. We are looking for volunteers to lay tracks, lay cross-tracks, carry poles, and be drivers. You would have to commit to both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday is usually a longer day, where you need to be available for little more than half a day. Sunday is a shorter day starting early, and usually done in the early afternoon. No experience is needed for most jobs.
Contact Kent Hildebrand for more details.

Our policies continue to evolve, based on feedback from our guests and members, and instructions from CDC, WHO and the governor. Although we are back to full capacity, and drop-in trainers are welcome, you can reserve a timeslot for practice and run-thru classes. Trainers who have reserved a slot online will have priority over drop-in trainers.

COVID-19 Policy as of March, 2022
FVDTC’s COVID policy has been to closely adhere to the guidelines from the CDC, the Governor, and the Kane County Health Department. Per the CDC, Kane County is now at a low level of risk for COVID-19 transmission, so the newest update to our policy is:
- If you have tested positive for COVID-19, do not come to training for 10 days
- We prefer that you stay home if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, but — at a minimum — wear a mask while at training
- All others are free to choose whether to wear a mask, based on your vaccination status, personal level of risk, and your comfort level.
As always, FVDTC is dedicated to the safety and well-being of our members and guests while we interact with our dogs and each other. Please, consider “the other guy” when making attendance and masking decisions.
