You are responsible for your own dog at all times.
Happy Chops is fully insured but it is advisable that your dog is covered by your own pet insurance.
Dogs must be kept on the lead when on the training field unless instructed otherwise by a trainer.
You must pick up after your dog.
No choke chains. Flat leather collars are recommended.
No bitches in season can be brought to classes.
Children are welcome to join in my classes under appropriate adult supervision, but need to stay calm and quiet when not involved in training exercises however with very young children a second adult supervisor might be advisable.
I reserve the right to remove a dog from a class if I consider it to be aggressive
Please bring proof of vaccination to your first lesson.
Dog treats: tasty, meaty treats such as hot dogs, small pieces of ham or tuna cake are recommended. There will be a lot of distractions for your dog and good quality treats will help keep his focus on you. Dry biscuits are not exciting enough!
Flat leather/soft collar (with ID tag): this is recommended for all dogs. If you use a halter or harness then you can bring this along with you. No choke chains, prong or shock collars are allowed.
Standard training lead: this allows you to participate properly in exercises and is kinder to your hands.
Toys can be used as a training reward so you can bring a favourite toy your dog loves to play with.
Please remember my classes are all outdoors so please dress appropriately.
All bookings - please be advised that any cancellation made within 48h will be charged 50% of the original booking fee
