4 Lesson Guarantee Package or your Money back

To be able to give a Guarantee an improvment to your dogs behavior these following terms and conditions are required.

  • We will record on the first visit the behaviour that is an issue for you.
  • We will document the homework we give you that is to be done in our absence
  • The online videos need to be watched and followed
  • All the Trainers recommendations need to be followed – these will be documented as well
  • The Package must be completed within 3 months of the start date.
  • There will be basic tests along the way to ensure you are training whilst we are not there.
  • This package is not available for Aggression or Reactivity.

 

In Home Training

 

  • When you book a job it is for the period stated.  If there is more than one dog to be trained it is in that period stated – YOU DO NOT GET BONUS HOURS FOR EXTRA DOGS.
  • Safety is everything – if you fail to notify us of a potentially dangerous issue you will be liable for costs and damages or injury to staff.  Whilst some team members are equipped and trained to deal with aggression issues I will not tolerate a client endangering themselves or my team by not telling us all the relevant information.
  • If you have a gated property my team will not enter – you will need to be there ready – this is for safety reasons – you are legally required under council bylaws to provide safe access to the front door.
  • Any Unit complexes need to provide parking.

GROUP CLASS RULES

 
  1. No Children under 14 years of age will be handling dogs unless prior arrangement is made with the Instructors – this is a safety issue.  The exception is Puppy school where it is encouraged for children to attend.

  2. All visitors or spectators must observe from the sideline and are not ever welcome on field.

  3. One handler per dog from commencement of course to completion, as it is not fair on your dog to have several handlers, especially ones whom are not as trained as the dog.  Also a handler that is only a fill in will hold up the rest of the class.  Fill in handlers also pose a high level of risk to others.

  4. All persons whom attend our classes do so totally at their own risk.  Although all care will be taken, we do not accept and responsibility or liability for any action, which may occur during the entire course.

  5. Any classes missed, throughout the course is your own responsibility and you will not be given a refund.  You can arrange a catch up session with the Instructor at your own cost.

  6. Due to the structure of the ongoing courses, class will be held regardless of weather conditions unless otherwise notified.  Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) will dictate safety.  You will be notified if the class has to be cancelled.

  7. Safety is of utmost importance, and we do not like aggression at our classes, so upon arrival at class, do not let your dog loose – keep under restraint at all times.  Give you and your dog at least 3 metres distance between you and the next person.

  8. We reserve the right to refuse entry to any person or dog that we don’t feel is capable of ensuring a safe standard of control or who is not, in our opinion, trying to progress successfully.

  9. No people on the field except Instructors and Handlers.  No friends, family or children.

  10. We reserve the right to tell persons to leave our classes or areas of training due to poor practices, equipment or ability that could increase potential risk to self, instructors, clients or bystanders.

  11. Closed in footwear is to be worn on the field by handlers at all times.  If you show up to class without safe footwear you will be asked to leave as it is a huge safety risk to yourself, others on the field and all of the dogs if you slip and cant hold your dog.

  12. We will not allow equipment in class that is potentially hazerdous to the dog or clients – this includes but is not limited to Halti brand halters (they hurt their neck) – Retractable leads or Springy leads.

Appy – Rules

  • We reserve the right to remove anyone from the app considered to be of a contrary intrest to the business or any policies.
  • We will not tolerate any bullying or intimidation of Team or other members in the community section or elsewhere – you will be banned from the app and not refunded.
  • All videos etc are propriety information and not to be shared – they are only available to the member.  Distribution will cause immediate closure of your account and potential legal action for breach of copyright laws in Australia and or Internationally.

 

Environmental Policy

Given the nature of weather in Queensland – if it is deemed a risk to the dogs or humans we will postpone the class that week.  Your individual class trainers will contact you 30-45mins prior to class if this is required due to rain or extreme heat.


  • There is a $10 administration charge for Manual bookings of classes or appointments not done through the booking site.

CANCELLATION and REFUND POLICY

Any appointment or group class that is cancelled without 24hrs notice will either have the lesson forfeited if paid or if unpaid will receive an invoice for $150 payable within 30 days for insufficient notice given as per applicable under Australian Consumer Law.  It will then be passed onto a debt collection agency if unpaid.

Any In Home Training Refunds are subject to the CEO of the business – if it was a package deal then the lessons used will be charged at the full hr rate and any remainder may be refunded. ie if you had a $400 package deal and stop after 2 lessons you may get a refund of $100 as each lesson is $150 an hr.

Any Home Lessons not used in 12 months will be considered expired.

If you want a refund because you returned a dog, gave it away or for whatever reason failed it – the answer is NO! Any remaining credit will be used toward helping rescue dogs. You got a dog – it is for life!

Group Classes are not refundable but you are able to use as credit to another class.  This money goes to helping charity.
