FAQ's
1 - Are there any guarantees? No, success with training is reliant on the owners applying training techniques correctly and practice.
2 - Are prong collars allowed? At the trainers discretion after she has evaluated the dog.
3 - Are choke collars allowed? At the trainers discretion after she has evaluated the dog.
4 - Are E-collars allowed? No.
5 - Can we train off-leash? No. All training is ON leash. Off Leash training is an advanced skill, NOT for Puppy Kindergarten or Basic Obedience.
6 - May my family come with me? Yes, however only one person at a time works with the dog. Whoever is holding the leash is the one working with the dog. Each member of the family should take turns holding the leash and working with the dog.
7 - Can I drop off my child to do the class? Any handler ages 7-15 is required to have an adult stay on-site for the whole class at the training location (not sitting in the car). Anyone ages 16 and up may attend on their own.
8 - Can our other dogs come? No. The only dogs that may be on-site are dogs that are registered in the class.
