IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Many dog training companies pack up to 15 handler/dog teams in one class with one instructor. All of our classes are limited to no more than 8 handler/dog teams. By limiting our class size, our clients get the one to one attention they deserve and are able to achieve maximum results.

The Class Contract is required for all classes and is available by filling out our Service Agreement Form or by calling us at 404.603.9744 to register today.

If we do not have a class time which works for your schedule, or if you can put together at least three students for a class, please let us know. In either case, we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs.

New student orientation is required for some classes. Please check with K-9 Coach when registering.

Class Rules

Enrollment – Once your completed class registration and payment are received, you will be provided with a confirmation receipt. Full payment is required to reserve a space in class.

Vaccinations/Illness – You must present proof of required vaccinations in order to participate. For puppy classes, pups must be 10 days past their first DHPP vaccination. For all other classes, current rabies and bordetella (kennel cough) vaccinations are also required. Any dog that shows signs of illness will be removed. Please do not bring your dog to class if they are vomiting, have diarrhea, are sneezy or coughing.

Cancellation – If the minimum enrollment for a class is not met 2 days prior to the first class session, the class may be rescheduled. You will be contacted via telephone or e-mail to see if you would like to enroll in the rescheduled class or receive credit toward a future service.

Refunds – Because registration is limited and spots fill up fast, we do not issue refunds for class withdrawals. Instead, we will issue a K-9 Coach credit good for ANY service we offer. If a dog is unable to complete class due to an injury or illness during enrollment, you will receive a 50% discount toward a future class. However, no refunds or discounts will be given after the third class session.

Special Note – For the protection of all participants in group classes, K-9 Coach reserves the right to decline entry to any dog who presents behavior issues deemed dangerous or disruptive to the class. If we determine that a dog is not able to participate in the group class, you will be referred to a private consultation with an appropriately qualified trainer and given a credit toward that service. This rule applies to illness, aggression, fear or other behavior related issues.
Attendance – Students enrolled in classes are required to attend the first class session. Students who miss the first class session, without making prior arrangements, may not be allowed to join the remaining sessions. If you miss any other session, please contact the trainer to discuss topics / homework. Because classes progress based on the students in them, drop-in/make-up classes are not possible. Students not pre-enrolled, or those wishing to join after the first session, may be able to join at the trainer’s discretion, if there is space available. Please be prompt. Late arrivals cause disruption as well as the flow of class. Students arriving more than 15 minutes late will not be allowed to enter class.

Children in Class – All family members are encouraged to attend group classes. To ensure the safety of everyone in class:
• Children must be 7 years old or older. Children under 12 MUST have an adult supervisor, other than the active class participant, present. This adult’s role will be to supervise the child and ensure their safety.
• Children must be under parental control at all times.
• No running or yelling will be permitted.
• Not all dogs are comfortable with children and it is important they never approach or pet any other dog in class.
• We reserve the right to ask that any child be removed from the classroom at any time.

For the first class with dogs, please note:
• For your pet’s safety, please bring your pet to class on leash and refrain from greeting other dogs.
• A flat collar, martingale collar, head halter, or harness is required.
• A non-retractable nylon or leather six-foot leash is required. No Flexi-Leads!
• Please “empty-out” your canine before class, and please pick up after your pet in the class vicinity.
• Please bring plenty of your pup’s favorite treats to class.
