Proof of vaccines must be presented in order for a dog to attend a class. Adult dogs must have proof of being current on vaccinations for rabies, distemper and parvo. Puppies too young for a rabies vaccination need only provide proof of vaccinations for distemper and parvo. IF SUCH PROOF HAS NOT BEEN PROVIDED PRIOR TO THE FIRST CLASS, YOUR DOG MAY NOT ATTEND. This is for the safety of all dogs.
GROUP CLASS CANCELLATION POLICY
If a group class is cancelled due to weather conditions, a make-up class will be scheduled. However, individual make-up classes (in the event that you are unable to attend a class for which you have already registered) cannot be scheduled. 48 hours notice, prior to the first date of a group class session, is required for cancellation for that session. Refunds for a group class session will not be made once the session has begun.
If a class has only one dog/handler team registered for it, the class will be cancelled. You will be contacted and your payment applied to a different group class.
PRIVATE TRAINING & BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION CANCELLATION POLICY
Notice to trainer must be given, via email or phone, at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled session, in order to reschedule the session. Refunds are not given; the payment is applied to a future session. Dogs learn best when training is consistent. We strongly encourage keeping to the set training schedule, in order to set your dog up for success.
WEATHER CANCELLATION POLICY - GROUP CLASSES
In the event that a class is cancelled due to severe weather, it will be posted here on the website.
AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR POLICY
In the event that a dog displays aggressive behavior aimed at a person or another dog, that dog/owner team may be asked to leave a class. Best Friends Dog Academy will discuss options with owner (private training or behavior consultation). In these cases, credit for the class will be carried forward to a behavior consultation or to private training sessions.
