Attendance

We are not able to accommodate make up classes for sessions missed.  Your instructor will contact you if you have missed a class to discuss what was covered in that class.  

Payment

Payment is to be made in full at the first class

Declines and Referrals

In order to protect all participants in a class, we reserve the right to decline entry to any dog who presents behaviour issues that may be dangerous, disruptive, or that may be exacerbated by participation in a group class.  If bePhaviour issues are discovered during the class and the instructor determines that it is in everyone's best interest for you to seek a private trainer, you will be provided with a qualified trainer referral and a refund.

Children in class

We encourage family members to come to training class with the handler.  The following guidelines must be followed with regard to children attending our dog training classes:  Handlers must be at least 14 years of age; handlers younger than 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult.  Children must be at least 5 years of age to attend class, children between the age of 5 and 8 must have dedicated supervision by an adult.  Parents must supervise their children during the entire class.

If a minimum enrolment for the class is not met prior to the first class session, the class will be cancelled or postponed. We will notify you at least 1 day before the class is scheduled to see if you would like to enrol in an alternate class.

Refund Policy

Refunds will not be given, except in extenuating circumstances
