Policies You are welcome to observe a Graduating or Advanced class before enrolling. This way, you will better understand what is expected of you and your dog.
There is physical activity required of both the dogs and the owners throughout this course. If you have any health limitations please discuss this with us before enrolling for classes. We will make every effort to assist you with your special needs. We may not be able to accommodate some Special Needs pet owners in our group setting. However, we do offer other programs, such as private training.
Anyone wishing to enroll with a large, older dog who has had minimum to no training, must be aware that such a dog is subject to extreme outbursts and tantrums. This may cause distress to the owner thinking their dog is un-trainable. JCM's recommends that the dog has either one or two private sessions, or stays at the trainer's facility for a few days, in addition to continuing in the group classes.
Because dog training takes concentration and commitment on the part of the owner, we ask that no child under the age of twelve (12) participate. Younger children must stay in the vehicle while on the training grounds. Refund Policy: At the end of the first class, if you do not wish to continue, there will be a $50.00 charge, not including equipment. No refunds will be issued unless written notification is received or post marked no later than 48 hours after the first class; no exceptions.No refunds will be issued to anyone who joins the second class.
Any dog can be unpredictable around strange dogs and unfamiliar people. Even friendly dogs can snap if startled or frightened. If you are participating in this class or have just come to observe, we ask that you:
•DO NOT touch or pet any dog other than your own. •DO NOT allow anyone else to pet your dog. •DO NOT permit your dog to sniff another dog, or someone else's dog to sniff your dog. •DO NOT assist other students in class.
Dog ownership is a "people" responsibility. While on the training ground you and your dog are "in school". COPYRIGHT INFRINGMENT: The use of cell phones, cameras, camcorders, voice recorders or any other type of recording devices are not permitted.
CHILDREN: Children under the age of twelve (12) are NOT permitted on the training grounds, even with a parent or guardian. It is understood that these children must stay in the vehicle before, during, and after class.
Children ages twelve (12) to sixteen (16) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian not including the person working the dog. (No single parent with a child on the training grounds). Children age twelve (12), or unruly older children MUST stay in the vehicle before, during, and after class. No exceptions.
NOTE: This program is based on correction and praise. Dogs may be handled so inappropriate behaviors can be corrected as part of the training process. This course is NOT intended for owners who object to being instructed on how to control their dog, having their dog corrected for improper behavior, or feel their "out of control dog" needs to "express himself."
In Addition It is often the case that a dog owner will have participated in another school's training program prior to attending JCM's Dog Training School. Even though the previous training was found to be ineffective, the owner will sometimes incorporate the former school's philosophy and techniques into our program. As a result, the following regulations have been implemented.
• Any student who ignores the above rules set forth by this organization while attending class will not be permitted to continue.
• Specific training equipment is required for this program. It is at the trainers discretion as to what each individual dog needs. If a potential student objects to the selected training aid, they would not be allowed to participate in the course.
• Any student who implements someone else's training techniques or method while attending our classes will not be allowed to continue in our program.
Notification of dismissal may be immediate or come in the form of a phone call, letter, or e-mail. •There will be no refund issued to any class member asked to leave as a result of misconduct. •Dismissal or removal of any student from this training program is at the Trainers discretion. •JCM's reserves the right to deny service to anyone, no explanation necessary.
