• Overly aggressive dogs will not be accepted and be referred to an animal behaviourist.

Terms & Conditions

Upon registering and paying up front for the course we reserve a space in the class for you for the duration of the course. Therefore no refund will be given for any classes missed.

Once the course has commenced you are responsible for full payment, since we have turned other applicants away to keep our class sizes appropriate for effective learning and teaching. 

This space then cannot be made available to other applicants once the course has commenced.

Refunds will not be considered because of this.

Payment options will be entered into by prior arrangement only.

Classes are NOT cancelled due to rain.

Your dog is your responsibility at all times.

Dogs and puppies not enrolled in the school will not be allowed on the premises without prior arrangement.

Children are welcome, but remain your responsibility.

No dog will be allowed off lead with out the permission or supervision of an instructor.

A copy of up to date vaccination certificate of the enrolled dog must be presented or emailed before the commencement of class. 

These conditions are in place to ensure effective management of classes, safety, and above all the enjoyment of spending quality time with your dog.
