Deepwood Canine Consultant Policies

We do not accept intact (non-neutered) male dogs over the age of 9 months or female dogs in heat into group social classes without prior approval from the instructor.

We are a family-friendly environment and we understand the need to both train a puppy and work with small children. All children over the age of 10 are welcome as long as they are not disruptive, and are willing to remain seated in the classroom.


Class Cancellation & Refund Policy

All prices are subject to change.  Cancellations require a minimum of 72 hours’ notice or a 50% cancellation fee may apply.  Each reservation holds a spot in a limited sized-class. If you cannot make your current class schedule, we encourage you to consider transferring to a different class (where your fees will be also transferred); however the transferring is subject to availability of the class. No refunds will be issued once a class has started.

Board/Train Cancellations

Cancellations require 48 hours’ notice or subject to $100 cancellation fee. See our Holiday Reservation Policy.

Private Training Cancellations

Cancellations require 24 hours’ notice or 50% cancellation fee may apply. 100 % cancellation fee applies for No Shows.  

Missed Classes

There are no make-ups for missed classes; however, you are welcome to sit in on any future session without your dog. If interested, makeup sessions can be scheduled as a private session with your Instructor, however the make-up is charged to you as a one-hour private training fee. If your dog is unable to attend due to an injury or illness during your course, you will receive a 50% discount towards a future class.

Instructor/Class Cancellations

Notifications regarding weather or emergency cancellations will be given as soon as possible before class. The class times for the make-up sessions will be the same as the original classes, unless the class and instructor mutually agree upon an alternate date and time. There are no refunds for make-up classes that you are unable to attend.
