Kayenna Training Academy told Global News it believed the cancellation of group training classes, due to ongoing business restrictions, could lead to more animals being surrendered.“What’s going to happen, is dogs are going to end up rehomed,” owner Lauren Alexander said. “They’re going to end up in the humane society and worst-case scenario — euthanasia is an option for some of these dogs.”Alexander said her facility used to train between 450 to 500 dogs a week pre-pandemic, but that number has been cut drastically.“We’re training maybe six a day because we can only book an hour time slot for one dog.”Alexander said Alberta’s COVID-19 restrictions prevent her from holding group behaviour and training classes.
