When attending a dog training lesson it is advisable that all members who are responsible for the day to day care of the dog attend. From experience we know that the information we provide to you during the lesson will be more likely to be accepted and practiced, ongoing, in this scenario. So we can further provide advice relevant to your particular training requirement it is advisable to bring your everyday handling equipment that you use to control your dog and/or play with your dog.
Please Note: Equipment in and of itself is not dangerous. The incorrect use of any equipment can cause harm. We believe it is negligent for dog trainers to avoid educating well-meaning dog owners on the pros and cons of all available dog training equipment simply because of the personal bias of the trainer. If you own a choke chain, remote training e-collar, pinch or prong collar, Halti, gentle leader, or any other piece of dog training equipment not mentioned, please bring that with you as we will discuss the best type and use for your training situation.
Common sense prevails in all of our training programs. This relates to the clothes you wear, (which should suit vigorous outdoor activity, such as closed in shoes etc ) the control of children that are unable to participate in the training session, not feeding your dog before the lesson due to possible medical complications and the need to contact us if you will not be able to commence the lesson on time.
If your dog is unwell, we will not train it. If we believe that the dog has behavioural issues relating to a medical condition, we will cease the training session and recommend seeking veterinary advice prior to you re-commencing the training program with us. All care is taken when we are working with your dog/s. During the K9 BoardSmart program your dog will be staying with us, our family and our dogs. On occasion some dogs suffer an injury as a result of playing and through the course of training. These injuries are never intentional but can be part of the process of changing behaviour and playing with other dogs. While all care is taken, we will not be held responsible for these injuries.
