We limit the number of dogs in our classes to provide the appropriate trainer to dog ratio. Booking in advance guarantees a place on our courses.
You must not knowingly book a dog that shows aggression or nervousness onto a training or agility course, unless it is specific course that is intended to address these issues. We reserve the right to excuse dogs that are aggressive in class for safety of everyone.
We are unable to refund course fees once the course has commenced and partial refunds for missed classes are not given. Please notify us beforehand if you will miss a class. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide make up sessions however we will endeavour to ensure you are able to catch up at your next attendance.
A toilet break before each class will ensure your puppy/Dog is empty and comfortable. Please be a responsible dog owner and always clean up after your dog. Take home all used poo bags and do not leave these on the premises or outside in the car park.
For livelier, excitable dogs it can be beneficial to exercise your dog before class with a game or a short walk. Do not over-exercise your dog before a class otherwise they will be too weary.
