Please be aware dogs female cannot attend if they are in season.
Please be sure your dog is in good health prior to attending. If your dog has a cough, loose stools or is generally unwell.. please seek veterinary help prior to recommencing training.
In booking a session with me you agree to these terms and conditions.
An email will be issued prior to your session including a video to help find our car park. Please ensure you do park where directed and not on the road side.
Prior to booking a training place with me, please consider your availability and schedule. Upon booking I reserve a spot for you in a class of limited numbers or a slot with limited availability during daylight saving.. If you wish to cancel a class space I require 7 working days’ notice in order to refund your class fee. After this time class spaces are none refundable or transferable.
If you wish to cancel or reschedule a private training space I require 48hrs notice. I will always do my best to reallocate your time slot, however this is not always possible and results in loss of income.
Unfortunately, I am unable to refund if a cancellation is made after this time, nor a can I issue partial refunds for missed classes or transfer the funds towards other services offered.
Any lessons 'banked' must be rebooked within 3 months. After this time the lesson is void and has been lost. No refund or transfer will be available.
If you or your dog is unable to attend due to an injury or illness during your course, I will do our best to find you a space in a suitable class; but this cannot be guaranteed.
If I cancel a class, you will receive a full refund except for circumstances beyond my control i.e. adverse weather conditions. In the event of adverse weather conditions please check your emails or call ahead before setting off for your session. Weather updates will also be posted via social media.
