CLASS POLICIES
  • These policies are subject to change at any time.
  • No refunds.
  • Any dog that is ill or presents a potential threat to other dogs or people may be asked to leave the class.
  • Dogs must be current on required vaccinations.
  • Any owner/handler who is abusive to their dog or to other class participants will be asked to leave by the instructor.
  • Visitors to class are welcome, but must abide by these policies (including kids).   Kids are welcome in class, but must not be disruptive.
  • Aversive equipment such as shock collars, choke collars, and pinch collars are    not allowed in any class. If you believe your dog requires aversive equipment for training, please contact me before signing up for any class.
PAYMENT and MISSED CLASSES
  • Beginning in January 2022, group class prices will be $100 per month (4 classes).  When the month has 5 class days, the extra day will either be a make up date, or skipped. Classes that are canceled by me for weather or other reasons will be credited to the following month. There are no refunds.

 

  • Beginning in January 2022, private classes will be $60 per hour, or $40 for a half hour. Payment can either be by 4-class session, or by the individual class.

  • Group class payments are expected *in full* on the first day of class each month in order to reserve your spot. Cash, check, and PayPal are accepted.

  • Missed classes: No refunds will be given if you miss a class. In group classes, you can attend another class instead if space is available. The makeup class must be attended within a month of the missed class.

  • If you need to miss a full month, you can either pay the full amount to hold your spot, or relinquish your spot to someone on the wait list. I’ll add you to the wait list if you want to come back to class when a spot becomes available.

  • Please let me know as soon as possible if you will miss classes.

  • 24-hour notice is requested to cancel a private class. 

  • When a class is canceled due to weather, you will be given credit for that class in the following month. No refunds will be given for weather-related cancellations. 

  • No refunds. 

 

BE PREPARED FOR CLASS

  • Arrive several minutes before your class is scheduled to start so you have time to potty yourself and your dog, and get settled.

  • Bring the required equipment - treats, water, bait bag, clicker, leash, crate, etc.

  • Bring a good attitude! Your dog is happy to get to spend class time with you.

  • Watch other dogs work. You'll learn much from their challenges and successes.
