Terms, Polices, & Procedures
You can reschedule lessons 2 times. We need a 24 hour notice to reschedule otherwise you forfeit the lesson.
Angelic Paws may cancel lessons due to weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances and the lesson will be rescheduled.
Should the trainer show up for a schedule lesson and no one is home or available, and no notice was given, it will be considered a lesson and the lesson fee will charged to the student.
We Don’t Guarantee Results
Because much of the training occurs in the home between training sessions/ after board and train stays, in order to achieve desired training or behavioral outcomes you must follow all advice and activities provided by Angelic Paws. For this reason, Angelic Paws cannot guarantee any training or behavioral outcomes.
No refunds for any training services.
Assumption of Risk
When signing up for training you are agreeing to knowledge of potential dangers. You acknowledge that dogs are unpredictable animals with their own will and drives, and therefore, regardless of training, handling, or environmental circumstance, employees of Angelic Paws Dog Training cannot protect against every potential injury, risk or accident to you, to other persons participating in the training or on the property where the training is taking place, or to dogs. These may include dog attacks, dog bites and the responsive actions and complications that arise from them, and you understand and acknowledge that such risks are inherent and cannot be eliminated. This Agreement is intended to shift the risk of participating in dog training to you. Do not sign it unless you are willing to assume the risk to yourself, your dog, and others accompanying you of your participation in dog training, including the associated risks of bodily injury, illness, death or property damage while participating in the dog training and related activities on the property of Angelic Paws Dog Training, in your own home, or in a public space.

You must disclose if you dog has a bite history. Not disclosing it will result in your remaining lessons being cancelled without a refund.

Payment must be made during the registration process in the form of credit card. After payment for services is made refunds are not offered. As a small business I hope you can understand my limitations once payment has been made. Any refund requests granted will be subject to a $20 service fee for processing.
Tools and Equipment
If you have used other methods or equipment in the past we are still happy to work with you. We use food exclusively in our behavior modification and do not use the following equipment (and would require you cease to use as well); ecollars/shock collars, choke chains, using physical force, bark collars, alpha rolling, citronella spray, leash jerks. Using these methods while working with us will result in not meeting your goals and risking fallout behaviors with your dog.
