5 Reasons not to bring your dog to class:
If your dog has fleas, please do not bring your dog to class.
your dog has mange, please do not bring your dog to class.
your dog has a communicable type of worms, please do not bring your dog
If your dog has been exposed to kennel cough, please do
not bring your dog to class.
If your dog is in heat, please do
not bring your dog to class.
If your dog is sick, please do not
bring him or her to class. I would recommend that YOU come to class so
you do not miss out on any of the material being presented.
or Arousal: If for any reason, your dog exhibits aggressive type
behaviors in class or on the premises, we have the right to remove your
dog from group class. You may then use the balance of the tuition toward
Switching from group to private lessons:
If the behavior of the dog makes it necessary to switch you to private
lessons, the pro-rated balance will be put towards the private tuition
Dogs Greeting: Please do not let your dogs greet
each other- on leash greeting is not the most appropriate way to have
two dogs meet. When you are coming inside, please come in one dog at a
time, giving the other dogs enough room to not be lunging and straining
on the leash. Please avoid gathering by the doorway as this may crowd
other dog and handlers from entering. Avoid conflicts! Not all dogs have
been well socialized and therefore may not like strange dogs invading
Bitches (female dogs) in Heat: If your dog is
in heat you will not be allowed in class.
Helping your dog
focus in class: Group classes can be very distracting. To help you
and your dog get the most out of class and to help your dog maintain
focus the following tips are suggested.
- Toilet your dog before
entering the building. Please clean up any bowel movements and dispose
of them in the orange pail provided.
- Some dogs may benefit from
some exercise prior to coming to class. If this is the case please give
them time to exercise at least ½ hour before the start of class.
We will be using treats to reward our dogs in class. Your dog may pay
better attention to you if he or she is hungry. Make sure to bring soft,
yummy treats to each class!
Call if you cannot make it to
class. I understand that sometimes life gets in the way of dog
training and that you may have to miss a class. I would greatly
appreciate a call (460-8548) if you can’t make it to class so I do not
hold up class waiting for you and so I do not worry about you!
