Dog Policies

If there are limited working/full registration spots with dogs for the event you signed up for and the limit has been reached you will have the option to be put on a wait list, cancel without penalty or switch to an auditor.

We ask that only working participants have dogs in the building during the seminar. The strictness of this policy depends on the location of the seminar and space availability.

Unless otherwise stated, all dogs must be friendly with people and dogs, and quiet in a crate or ex-pen. Noisy or disruptive dogs will be asked to be moved to your vehicle or leave.

Participants asked to leave the event/property because her/his dog is dangerous, disruptive or un-manageable will not be refunded any part of the tuition.

Unless otherwise stated, females that are currently in estrus (day 1 – day 21) are excluded from participating in working seminars. The owner has the option to switch to an auditor position and will be reimbursed per the transfer to auditor refund policy listed above. If the owner does not choose to switch to auditor status she/he forfeits registration.

Dogs must be on leash and supervised at all times. Owners must pick-up after her/his dog.
