Payment for courses, classes, workshops, assessments and one-to-one training sessions must be made in advance.

Participation


Training plans are not productive if they keep stopping and starting with large gaps in between appointments. Clients who feel they cannot commit to regular training should wait until they feel they can commit before booking/enrolling/subscribing.

An animal will not continue to perform trained behaviours without ongoing practice. Brown Dog Training will make every reasonable effort to help the participant attain their training goals however, Brown Dog Training makes no guarantees of performance on the part of the participant or their dog after the completion of the agreed upon coaching service. Participants understand that their dog’s behaviour is ultimately their own responsibility.

Participants are responsible for purchasing all necessary equipment and/or motivational tools that Brown Dog Training recommends for training your dog.

Please do not bring bitches in season to the training venue.

Courses & Workshops


Payment for courses and workshops is payment for the stated number of consecutive sessions on the dates indicated. Non-attendance will result in a loss of that class or workshop unless the class or workshop is cancelled by Brown Dog Training, in which case a new date will be organised. Non-attendance of the alternative date will result in loss of that class or workshop.

Under the Consumer Rights Act, participants may cancel their purchase within a period of 14 working days beginning the moment they make payment. However, there is no right of cancellation where the course or workshop starts within this 14 day period.

In the event that a course or workshop has such low enrolment as to make it impracticable for Brown Dog Training to provide it, we will either email or call you at least 2 days before your course/workshop is due to begin to let you know there is the possibility that the course or workshop may be cancelled or postponed. If a course or workshop is cancelled due to low enrolment, we will work with you to either transfer you into a new course or workshop, or offer you a full refund.

Payments for courses and workshops are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Under the Consumer Rights Act you may cancel your initial purchase within a period of 14 working days beginning the moment you make your payment. However, there is no right of cancellation where you have a one-to-one coaching session or assessment within this 14 day period.

Animal aggression can cause injury, including fatal injury, to other animals and people.

Precautions may involve but are not limited to, keeping a dog on a lead, the use of a muzzle, informing others of the dog’s aggressive tendencies, not mixing with certain types of people or other dogs, or confinement behind fencing and doors. Owners remain responsible for their dogs at all times and are advised to have adequate pet or household insurance cover for liability in the event of damage or injury caused by their dog to property or to a third party. It is strongly recommended that your dog is insured for third party liability with or without vet cover.
