Saturday and Sunday our Office is closed, although we have trainers and staff on the property.

Drop Off Agreement: When dropping off your dog at our facility you will need to stick to the exact time that we agreed upon. We are a working Training Facility, so staff is working and training dogs and can not be waiting for someone to arrive, therefore we schedule staff to be available for receiving your dog and to meet andgreet you making sure your dog gets onto the property safe and secure.  If you will be late to drop off, please call us, and let us know, so we can keep training the dog that we are currently working with.

Make sure your dog is on a leash/collar that they cannot slip out of when going from your car to our property and the during the hand off to the staff member. Your dog may be nervous, scared or excited and any of those things can lead to your dog escaping the collar and running off or around the property, which is a safetyissue for the dog, the staff and other dogs on the property.

Client agrees that if at any time Trainer deems that Dog needs urgent veterinary care, Dog shall immediately be taken to a local veterinary clinic (Summit Vet Clinic, Dr. Lindsay Speer, DVM). If veterinary care is not deemed urgent, every attempt will be made to notify client before bringing Dog to the veterinarian. Client agrees to pay any associated veterinary bills.
