We Enforce These Policies– Please Take a Moment to Understand Them:
We are a small venue and do not provide refunds, so please plan carefully. Cancellations two weeks prior to an event are credited towards future events. Cancellations within two weeks of an event are not credited. No-shows are not credited. Should an event be canceled for any reason all registrants will receive full refunds.
Because of the serious nature of our work– training dog professionals to take beloved four-legged family members into public spaces– we require full attendance of all portions of class in order to complete your certification process. Please schedule accordingly to make sure you have plenty of commute time to make it to class on time. If you are traveling from out of town, please make travel arrangements such that you will be able to attend through the entire day on Sunday.
Students who miss any portion of the class for any reason will be required to return on subsequent class dates to make up the missed portion in order to certify. A $70 make up charge applies. To avoid this additional expense and delays to your certification, as well as out of respect for instructors and fellow students, please schedule your commute and travel arrangements to leave you plenty of time to be on time and to stay for the full scheduled hours each day.
A special note on first aid certification attendance: Due to the policies of the companies providing first aid certification, if you miss a portion of the first aid section of the class you will be required to make up the entire four-hour first aid section on a subsequent date.
