  2. It is your responsibility to ensure your dog is kept under control at all times - we will not tolerate lunging and barking at other dogs whilst working.

  3. Dogs must be kept away from other dogs during group classes unless the exercise involves controlled meeting of another dog. Do not allow your dog to wander up to every dog.

  4. Please do not allow your dog to toilet inside the training building - puppies should be taken outside for regular toilet breaks. It is your responsibility to ensure you do this.

  5. Please pick up after your dogs and use the bins provided. A suitable bin will be lined with a BLUE BAG. Please ensure your waste goes into the bag.

  7. Bitches in season must not be brought to training classes.

  8. Bitches who have been spayed must have at least 3 weeks off from training (5-6 weeks if Agility)

  9. Your dogs progression in a class requires you to do some training at home. If you only ever attend class once a week and do nothing in between your dog will not be 'trained'. training requires practice, patience and frequent reward when done correctly.

At times we use one of our demo dogs in the sessions to aid training, it is your responsibility to keep your dog a safe distance away from the demo dog at all times.  Under no circumstances will your dog be allowed to interact with the demo dog, they are there to aid your training. Please do not touch the demo dogs unless you ask first.

Wet Weather & cancellations:

Most of our classes are able to be moved indoors in extreme weather however if this is not possible and the instructor deems it unsafe, classes may be cancelled if too wet/hot. If this is the case - those on a 6 week course will have a week added to the end of their course. Those attending regular training will pay less the following month. The same applies to cancellations (instructor injury/illness or similar)
