By providing your phone number, you agree to receive text messages from Morgan's Pawsitive Pup Training
HOUSE ENTRY SAFETY
We require that upon entry to the home that your dog is safely put away in a kennel, backyard, or room. When the dog is introduced to the trainer, the dog must be on leash unless your trainer states otherwise. This is to ensure our trainer's safety, your safety, and your dog's safety.
Failure to comply can result in forfeit of the lesson at the trainer's discretion.
We’re passionate about safety and want to uphold local leash laws.
All dogs need to be held firmly by a responsible adult. At no time would we like dogs to be off-leash or dragging their leash while we are entering the home, out in public or in an unfenced area.
This is for your dog's safety, our Trainers safety, and local dog leash law mandates. We want to give you the best service possible so we make sure safety and law accordance are top priority!
For the safety of you, your dog, and our trainers we require properly fitted equipment and do not allow equipment that would cause a safety risk.
flat collar or fitted harness
4-6ft flat leash
Security risk equipment
shock collar or electric collar
loose collar or harness
We strive to start and end our classes on time. Safety and a good experience is our goal. Please be on time for your scheduled class, since we start at a certain location and move during the class we don't want anyone to get lost or left behind.
REGISTRATION / PAYMENT
Full payment is required to confirm your registration. Registrations that are not paid for, forfeit their spot in the class.
Registrations are not transferable to another class or another dog.
Registrations are not refundable, unless class cancellation occurs. (The full 6 weeks of class, not individual classes. Individual classes that need to be canceled will be made up on a later date)
GROUP CLASS REQUIREMENTS
Unless otherwise indicated, class will meet for 50 minutes.
Dogs must be current on all vaccinations appropriate for the dog’s age. Dogs are highly suggested to also be on some form of flea prevention.
Appropriate gear on the human need to be worn. Please wear closed-toe shoes, no sandals or backless shoes, no slippers, dress shoes, pumps, heels, etc. Sneakers or Hiking shoes are an excellent choice. Your safety is our concern.
The dog should be wearing a flat, buckle collar, head halti or harness as appropriate. Please no retractable leads (due to risk of injury up to amputation of extremities) 4-6 ft standard flat leads only. If you have any questions, we are happy to help you select the right training gear.
Female dogs in heat may be allowed in certain classes at the discretion of the trainer (Please contact your trainer before class to confirm attendance approval). The dog will be required to wear sanitary pants during class.
Have plenty of your dog’s favorite soft treats cut into small pea-sized pieces. The dog should value the treats as the tastiest and most rewarding thing EVER!
Please allow time to toilet your dog before class so that you and your dog are ready to start. Please be prepared to clean up after your dog outdoors and indoors.
Please arrive for class and be prepared for an on-time start. Late arrivals can result in missing the class if you can't find us for the duration of the class.
Children 7 years old and up are welcome to attend training classes, however, all handlers must be 18 years or older and physically able to restrain the dog. Persons under the age of 18 are only permitted to hold the leash with an adult present and handling a secondary safety line.
Group classes are progressive in nature, but we do offer class drop-ins to those that have completed basic training requirements. There are no make-up lessons provided for classes that the registrant did not participate in. If there is room in another group class, a registrant may participate in that class at the discretion of the trainer. Morgan's Pawsitive Pup Training is happy to schedule a private lesson at the location of the missed class but doesn't offer make ups at this point in time. The owner is welcome to join the next round as a drop in for the missed class prior.
PRIVATE LESSONS, DAY TRAINING, & REMOTE PRIVATE LESSONS
Your trainer will do their very best to arrive on time. Please have any training gear ready for when your trainer arrives. Most lessons run approximately one hour, but may run longer or shorter depending on the lesson purpose. We do work with animals that can be unpredictable, and we may need to spend additional time with a client if an issue occurs. If the client scheduled before you needs extra attention or we run into unexpected traffic on our way to your location, please understand that we may run slightly behind in our schedule, however, this delay will not impact the length of your lesson. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your day.
SCHEDULING / PAYMENT
Full payment is mandatory 72 hours before scheduled lessons to save appointment time. If payment is not received on time or before then the lesson will automatically be canceled, and can be rescheduled at the soonest availability.
If lesson is scheduled less that 72 hours before, payment will be required by the end of the business day. If payment is not received by that time, the lesson with automatically be cancelled, and be rescheduled at the soonest availability.
We want to make sure that we have space for scheduling everyone.
CANCELLATIONS / RESCHEDULING
We require a minimum of 3 days notice if you wish to reschedule your lesson. Lessons cancelled with less than 3 days notice will be forfeit and you will need to purchase an additional lesson if you wish to reschedule.
We do understand life can be unpredictable and do apologize for any inconvenience.
This is defined as the client not being present for a lesson (or access given to the dog in the case of day training). If the client is 20min or more late for the lesson time (or to giving access to the dog for day training) this will also count as a now show lesson.
This is unless notice is given at least 1hr before lesson of the late arrival exceeding 20min the trainer may offer a 30min lesson in its place. This will count as the full lesson of that day, and not have to be a forfeited lesson.
Morgan's Pawsitive Pup Training holds a no refund policy for all classes, programs, no shows, Introductory lessons, canceling lessons less than 3 days before scheduled time, or lesson(s) that have expired their 3-6 month life span.
All services have a life span of 3 or 6 months. We do this to optimize the training plans by not having training too spread out.
4 Lessons - 3 months
5 Lessons or more - 6 months
Exceptions may be applied for approved circumstances to hold lesson credits longer than the 3-6 month life span. This will be approved on a case by case basis by the owner.
Morgan's Pawsitive Pup Training reserves the right to change the pricing structure on any and all curriculum without obligation to refund existing registrants of those classes.
