Behavior Course Agreement

  1. I am responsible for my own actions and those of my dog.  I am responsible for my choices in handling dogs, interactions with dogs, and application of what I'm learning about dogs and training. I am also responsible for the actions of family members and friends I invite to observe, whether class is in-person or online.
  2. I will be on time for class, whether in-person or online.  I will arrive by the scheduled start time and be in my seat with my dog on his/her mat. If it’s an in-person class, I know I need to allow time to travel, park, allow my dog to potty, and get to the class area before start time. If it’s an online class, I will have home distractions contained and my training area defined.  I will have given my dog a potty break before start time. I will stay until completion of class.
  3. I understand I need to be cautious with dogs in general and in a group of people and dogs, for the safety of myself and my dog and also for the behavior welfare of my own dog and the other dogs we meet.
  4. I understand my attendance is the first step to my success in becoming a Mannerly Dog Team and building a foundation for further training. I am committed to attending all scheduled in-person classes, all scheduled online sessions, and all scheduled coaching calls included in the program I have registered in. I will submit homework videos on time. I understand no make-up sessions will be offered and no refunds will be issued.  I will remain in close contact with Nancy by phone, text, or email to ensure I will meet scheduled class requirements.
  5. (For in-person classes and events only. Please initial, just in case.) I am committed to the physical health of all the dogs in my class. I will notify Nancy by phone, text or email if my dog shows any symptoms of illness. I will have my dog examined by a veterinarian if he/she is ill. I will not bring my dog to class while he/she is showing any symptoms or until my veterinarian says he is not contagious, but I will attend class and participate without my dog so I can get the training information and homework, ask questions, and support my classmates.
  6. I understand occasional photos or videos will be taken in class and recordings of online sessions will be made. The Mannerly Dog and Nancy Kelly may use my image and that of my dog and any observers I bring to class, as well as recorded online sessions for promotional purposes.
