Refund Policy:
There are no refunds after THE FIRST class has started. ** Reactive dogs will be removed from
group classes without a refund and must sign up for private lessons before going back to group
classes .  There are no refunds or credits if you miss a class.  As a courtesy, you can make up a
missed class during the same session only, for a class of the same level, with instructor approval,
if time and space permit.  THERE ARE NO REFUNDS ON MISSED CLASSES.  If classes have to be
canceled for reasons beyond our control such as acts of Nature, disasters, Pandamics etc THERE
ARE NO REFUNDS AND NO MAKEUP CLASSES.  The remaining classes we will do remote
lessons via facebook private groups.  

There is a $15 fee for returned checks.

**
No reactive dogs will not be permitted in group classes.  It  is unfair to other dogs in the class.  It can be very disruptive and unproductive to
other dogs in the class. They must start out in private lessons first. Reactive does not always mean aggressive, dogs who constantly bark at
other dogs or people in excitement are "reactive" to the group setting and private lessons will help give you the skills needed to participate
and move on to group classes.
