Registration/Payment:

All services (group class, private session) must be pre-paid in full at time of registration to complete your booking/registration. No group class or private session spots will be reserved without pre-payment.

We do not offer pro-rated classes if you cannot attend some of the class dates. When you register, you are signing up for the entire class set.

If you are having difficulty registering, making payment, or if you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, please contact us as soon as possible at 778-833-3335.

Cancellations/ Refunds:

CLASSES:

If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, you must provide one weeks notice before of the start time of the first class in order to receive a refund. If we are not notified at least one week before the start of the first class, there will be no refunds or credits issued.

If after attending we feel the class is not the right fit for your dog, we may request to move you to another class or training option.

No refunds or credits will be provided for missed classes due to required or optional self-isolating due to COVID-19.

Dog Behaviour:

If you have a dog that displays any of the below behaviours, please contact us before registering so that we can ensure you are placed in a class that is a good fit for you and your dog.

  • Leash reactivity (barking/pulling/lunging on leash towards other dogs and people)

  • Aggression towards other dogs or people

  • Anxiety/Fear towards other dogs or people

  • Consistent/excessive barking

AGGRESSION/INTENSE REACTIVITY:

We want your dog to be safe and comfortable, and due to the number of different people and dogs that come and go from classes, we are not able to accommodate aggressive or highly reactive dogs in our group classes, except Reactive Rover.

Dog Equipment:

We are Positive Reinforcement Trainers, and we do not allow punitive dog equipment such as prong collars, pinch collars, or e-collars/shock collars to be on any dog at any time while in classes (whether turned on, or not). We respect that owners may use the equipment of their choice outside of classes. However, we require that such equipment be completely removed from their dogs for the duration of the class. If you are interested in more information on positive equipment alternatives, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Flexi-leashes/extending leashes are not appropriate leashes for a class environment.

Please be sure to swap to a standard solid 4–6-foot leash (nylon, leather, etc.) for class and private training sessions.

Medical Issues/Circumstances:

If your dog is ill or injured, please keep them at home and do not bring them to the facility until they are cleared by a vet.

You are still welcome to attend group classes yourself without your dog if the illness your pet has is not a highly communicable illness or an infectious disease (such as giardia or bordetella).

If your dog has or is suspected to have kennel cough, please keep them at home until they have not coughed in 7 days; or they are cleared and deemed no longer contagious by a vet. While your dog is recovering, we ask that handlers/household members do not attend our facility, even without their dog, due to the risk of infecting other dogs.

All dogs should be current on vaccinations.
