All dogs are to be kept onlead and under control at our training venues. This applies to the car park, grassed areas and in class, unless you are asked by an instructor to remove your dogs lead for a particular behaviour or activity.
We reserve the right to change the timing, dates, venue or instructor. We try to avoid this as much as possible, but sometimes this is unavoidable, particularly with changes in the weather or Coronavirus restrictions, meaning we may need to postpone a class or 1-2-1 session.
We will be sure to communicate this to you via email / text / social media updates, as soon as we are aware of necessary changes and will reschedule any classes missed due to weather or instructor illness.

Payment and Refund Policy

Classes
If you need to cancel your class before you and your dog start training with us, please tell us before the start date and time of your class and a full refund will be issued.
We hope you find our classes informative, useful and fun; but if for some reason you need to discontinue your attendance part way through the course, please be aware that no refunds can be made.  Classes are planned carefully with a set timetable, and once the term has begun new dogs cannot be added to the course to take your place, for this reason, once the place in class is booked and you have begun the course, no refunds are issued.
No discounts can be made for any classes that you miss during the duration of the course.
Course locations, dates and times are set well in advance and keep to a structured  timetable. Please make sure you can attend all dates before booking. Be sure you are happy with the class start time, location, and your own travel time.
