Argus Ranch Guest Guidelines and Procedures

UPDATED March 12, 2022

 Subject to change

We are currently operating events, private training, practices and classes at Argus Ranch under the recommendations and restrictions outlined by Washington State, King County, CDC, etc.  
Most importantly, we want everyone to feel safe when visiting Argus Ranch. It’s imperative that you critically assess your own health and respect everyone else.   Please remember that no activity at Argus Ranch is worth getting sick over – or causing anyone else to become sick.   Please be mindful and respectful.

  • Everyone (Exhibitors, Spectators, Volunteers, and Judges) visiting Argus Ranch must comply with all Federal, State and Local laws. 

  • Everyone (Exhibitors, Spectators, Volunteers, and Judges) visiting Argus Ranch does so at their own risk.

  • Read and familiarize yourself about Coronavirus and how to prevent transmission before you visit Argus Ranch. Sources include:  WA State Coronavirus Response (

  • If you are ill, have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, or new loss of taste or smell or have been exposed to someone who has, you must stay home.  

  • If you develop symptoms or have Covid-19 within 14 days of visiting Argus Ranch, please inform Argus Ranch Management.

All persons on Argus Ranch should continue to practice social distancing to help others feel safe and comfortable. 

Face Coverings

  • All persons on Argus Ranch property need to always carry a mask and are encouraged to wear a mask whenever they would be more  comfortable doing so. 

  • Argus Ranch will require everyone to wear a mask, regardless of  vaccination status, when physical distancing is not ensured, such as:

    • Group walk throughs or crowded briefings

    • When working closely with an instructor or training partner

  • Argus Ranch will require everyone to wear a mask, regardless of  vaccination status, in the Training Barn when there are more than  8 people in that building.

  • Argus Ranch Instructors may require all students to wear a mask  during their class. Instructors may move class briefings outside to increase physical distancing and airflow.

  • Those who are unvaccinated against Covid-19 should wear a mask  at all times at Argus Ranch, except:

    • when in their vehicle or private room,

    • when walking dogs out in the fields or paddocks,

    • when running their dog in an agility    

  • Clubs holding events at Argus Ranch may have more stringent  requirements, but not less than the above.
