Fees and Cancellation Policies
Policies for Group Lessons/Classes
All dogs will be evaluated before enrolling in a class.
Our classes are small so we can customize what you and your dog needs.
After the evaluation,you may choose a class suited to your dog and your interests.
Class schedules vary and some classes are offered on rotating basis.
American Kennell Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) classes are a great way to help your dog be comfortable in public situations.
Canine Good Citizen training aims to help responsible owners have well-mannered dogs! It is the gold standard for dog behavior. Dogs who pass the GCG test can earn a certificate and/or the official AKC title. Dogs with the CGC title have the suffix "CGC" after their names.
There are 10 skills you will learn with your dog. See the link above for detailed information.
Family members are welcomed to attend and learn training tips and more about their dog. Children over 8 yrs old may accompany an adult if they are able to follow the safety rules.
1. First meeting for evaluation is $75.
When you sign up for a group or private lessons, your evaluation price is discounted to $70.
Group Lessons/Class appointment changes/cancellation/no shows*
A $25 deposit will hold your place in our small classes.
You can change the class you enroll in if you call at least a week in advance (no emails for this).
Life happens. I understand this, so one time change or transfer to a different class is allowed if necessary.
If the class is cancelled due to lack of minimum enrollment, your deposit will be refunded or transferred to another class if you like.
Absences from Group Lessons
If you must miss a group lesson, there are no refunds. Training your dog is a commitment. Each lesson is designed to build on foundations skills that are practiced at home between classes.
In the event of an emergency, we can schedule a review of those skills you missed for an additional $25.00 at another time.
~ Please be aware that if I do not actually talk to you to confirm your changes and you simply do not come to the first class, the deposit for the class will be retained.
There are no refunds for deposits and changes other than allowed under the above circumstances.
* $25.00 Deposit for classes must be prepaid by check, cash, PayPal or credit card.
Balance is due at the time of the first class. No refunds after the start of class.
