In addition to the terms and conditions specified above, the following apply to the group classes: 

  • Before the first class, you will be sent confirmation of your booking.

  • It is not K9 of Mine’s responsibility to ensure that I attend the classes on the correct date, time, and location according to the K9 of Mine’s instructions. 

  • Failure to pay for the full group class in advance may result in my place on the course being given to another client. 

  • Failure to attend a course that I have booked a place on, but not yet paid for, will result in a request for full payment, which I agree to be liable for.

  • The group training course consists of 6 weekly classes. Should I fail to attend one or more group classes I will not be issued a refund and will not be able to attend any other classes. There will be no partial refunds for missed classes.

  • I must provide a vaccination card during the first class to confirm that the dog(s) is (are) fully vaccinated. Failure to provide the vaccination card in the first session will not allow your attendance of the group session and no refund will be issued. It is my responsibility to have my dog fully vaccinated and health warranted.

  • Occasionally, K9 of Mine may find that a class environment does not suit a puppy or owner. Full discussion concerning the best way to proceed will be undertaken and this may result in K9 of Mine making alternative arrangements to assist.

  • K9 of Mine make every effort to ensure safety of both clients and dogs during the classes. By making a booking, I am accepting that participating in an activity with puppies, children and adults poses a risk of injury to myself and your dog, and I agree to indemnify K9 of Mine for all personal injury and damage to property owned by me while attending the training classes. I also agree to make any person who accompanies me to the class aware that they are also there at their own risk.

  • Missed classes cannot usually be taken by joining another group run by the tutor at the appropriate time as there may not be spare places and it is disruptive to the other group.

  • There will be no on-lead dog greetings. All dogs must remain on lead and kept away from contact with other dogs within the premises unless specifically instructed by K9 of Mine.

  • All instances of accident or injury must be reported to K9 of Mine at the time they occurred.

  • If a class has to be cancelled due to extraordinary circumstances beyond K9 of Mine’s control (such as weather that prohibits travel or is too extreme for safety), a refund will not automatically be given but every effort will be made to provide an alternative arrangement. This could involve a replacement class on an alternative day or a temporary switch to online teaching. 

  • All other cancellation and refund requests are at the discretion of K9 of Mine and dependent on individual circumstances.
