As we collectively live through this most unprecedented time together, we understand the uncertainties surrounding our everyday lives.  We have an amazing group of students and instructors at CSZ, and without you, CSZ would not be able to re-open. 

Since the Safer at Home Order went into effect, we have spent our time working to establish a new normal at CSZ to improve the safety of our students and environment .  Just like any good dog training we will need everyone’s participation.  Please review the following to familiarize yourself .  We will get through this together.
