Unsuitable Dogs for Classes
We do reserve the right, in the name of safety for everyone, to decide that group classes are not a fit for your dog if their behaviour is not healthy for them or productive for the environment. If this is the case, we will make arrangements for private training and apply a credit towards such from the initial payment made for the class.
