Service Description

Does a classroom environment make you, or your dog, anxious? Does your schedule change, so weekly classes aren’t possible? Would you like to focus on a few behaviours in more detail? You and your dog can learn in the comfort of your own home. One-to-one training is perfect for anyone who has just bought a puppy or rescue dog home. We can help settle them into their new surroundings and nip any problem behaviours in the bud, creating a strong foundation to continue developing your relationship. Has your perfect puppy turned into a tearaway? Is your adult dog struggling to focus and listen to you? Then a one-to-one will get you back on the right track. All our training is based on positive, reward-based techniques. This technique will give you the behaviours you ultimately want from your dog, increase your understanding of your dog and strengthen your bond with them. One-to-one training takes place in your home, in the outside world or via zoom. To begin with, We will attend your home or set up an online session where I will get an understanding of your needs, what problems you are having, what motivates your dog and what you would like to achieve. In the first session, we will begin to put together a plan and start basic training exercises. ​Our training package consists of 4hrs of training. The first session is two hours long. This allows for taking the history, dicussing problems, getting to know the dog and yourself and figuring out what you really want to achieve with your pooch.

Make sure all puppies and dogs have been allowed a toilet break before class so they enter the environment comfortable and empty. Always clear up after your dog. Take home all used poo bags do not leave these on the premises or outside in the car park. Anyone found not to do so will be asked to leave with immediate effect and no refund given. When arriving at class avoid meeting the other dogs on lead. Not all dogs are sociable and being in a new environment may react as a consequence. Do not allow dogs to play with one another outside or inside the venue unless instructed to do so. As this causes over excitement, frustration and lack of attention during the session. Do not crowd doorways or corridors, allowing plenty of space for dogs to exit and enter the room. On arrival enter the hall when requested to do so and take a seat. Do not let dogs off lead or drop leads unless instructed to do so by the instructor. The client is solely responsible for their dog’s behaviour. It may be beneficial to exercise dogs before class with a short walk. Do not over exercise dogs before class otherwise they will be too tired and aren’t likely to want to work. It is also a good idea to bring a kong or other food dispensing toy to class to amuse dogs while things are being discussed, preventing frustration such as barking. Consideration of other clients is paramount and mobile phones should be switched off or placed on silent when in class. We asked that phone calls are not taken while in class. Photography or videoing is not permitted in class. We may occasionally record videos and take photos in class. Please make us aware if you are not comfortable with that if you do not wish to appear. Information given during any session is believed to be true and accurate at the date which it is delivered however we will not take responsibility for any misinterpretation of this advice. We do encourage children and other family members to attend class however this must be checked with the instructor before hand if it will be more than two individuals attending with any one dog. Children under the age of 16 have to be accompanied by an adult. Children must behave appropriately with no running, shouting, petting or distract other dogs. Young children can struggle in the training environment becoming easily bored. It can also be challenging to supervise children and train the dog. If you bring any technology such as tablets or mobile phones to class to keep children amused please make sure they are on silent. Advanced Class Advanced class works on a pay as you go basis with clients stating how many dates they can attend of the seven week course. At least four of the seven class must be attended to keep your place. Class fees cannot be transferred to other services such as a one to one session or workshop. If the client decides to stop training but still has credits for classes the money will not be refunded.

No refunds are given for non-attendance to the course. The venue may at short notice cancel the use of the room. If this should happen we will contact you as soon as possible. Insufficient numbers booked on any course may cause that set or classes or workshop to be cancelled. You will be notified of future course dates or offered a private session. If this is not possible a full refund will be given. Dedicated to Dogs reserves the right to change any appointment at any time. We will, where possible, always rearrange the appointment. Any refunds given are at the discretion of Dedicated to Dogs and are consider on an individual basis. Dog’s Health and Wellbeing Dog’s health and wellbeing is paramount to Dedicated to Dogs. Any dogs who are unfit to partake in class due to illness, injury or disease should not be brought to class. Any disease which is infectious such as kennel cough should not be placed into an environment where it can mix with other dogs. If you are unsure of the cause of your dog symptoms then a vet must be consulted. You are welcome to attend class without your dog should they fall ill or become injury to keep up to date with the training process. No refund will be offered to owners who dogs fall ill during the course. Dogs should be vaccinated or have a titre test to prove immunity levels. Puppies can attend class after their first vaccination. Verification of this must be supplied at the first class with puppies. It is advised that puppies who haven’t finished their vaccination course are not allowed to walk on the floor outside the venue and should be carried to and from the car. Should your bitch come into session they sadly will not be able to attend class. This is due to the effect it will have on the other dogs present as well as the bitch possibly feeling insecure around a group of other dogs. No refund can be given however we may be able to defer to a different class if possible. This is treated on an individual basis. Start and Finish Times It is important you attend class on time giving time for the dogs to settle into the environment. Dogs entering late causes disruption to other dogs. Classes normally have a fifteen minute interval between sessions to allow for dogs exiting and entering as well as brief discussion. The instructors reserve the right to ask clients to remove themselves from the premises to allow the other class to enter the venue. This should be done in a timely manner. Equipment and Clothing Training involves practical handling and means appropriate shoes and clothing is a must. Flat, comfortable shoes are recommended for safety reasons. Some training does require clients to get down on the ground and therefore suitable clothing is recommended. Insurance Dedicated to Dogs has relevant business insurance to provide the services it does. We advise our clients to adequately insure their dogs including third
