Develop Your Dog and any venue at which a Develop Your Dog course is held will not be held responsible for dogs being kept in vehicles in car parks, or harm incurred to any dog(s), as a result of being left unattended in vehicles at any of our courses. Anyone bringing a dog(s) to any Develop Your Dog event is responsible for that dog(s) and its welfare at all times. Develop Your Dog accepts no responsibility for any dog or its welfare at any Develop Your Dog activity.



The following policies are in the interests of all participants and their dogs and by registering for a class with Develop Your Dog you agree to the following:

  • Keep your dog close to you and under control at all times.
  • Dogs are to be kept on a lead unless instructed otherwise during a training exercise.
  • Please contact us before enrolling if your dog has aggression issues. Dogs that have aggression and fear concerns will need one on one intervention before enrolling in a group class environment.
  • Do not allow your dog to approach other dogs. Despite the need for owners to socialise their dogs, a strange dog approaching a sensitive dog can cause them to show aggression as a defence strategy.
  • Develop Your Dog has the right to remove a dog and owner from the class (without a refund) if they feel the dog’s behaviour is not managed adequately by the owner and is therefore putting the other participants at risk.
  • Please encourage your dogs to relieve themselves before class. Should a dog relieve themselves before or during class, anywhere in or outside the training area, the owner will need to clean up and dispose of the waste in a suitable bin.
  • All dogs should be fully protected by vaccination before attending classes.
    Harsh handling is strictly forbidden. If it continues after an initial warning, the dog and owner will be asked to leave (without a refund).
  • The dog and any other person that is brought to class is the owner’s sole responsibility. Develop Your Dog cannot accept responsibility for any injury, loss or damage to person or property that occurs while attending a class.

Children are welcome but they cannot attend on their own (without adult supervision) if under 18 years old.

One to ones
Please read the classes section above and in addition note that:
Should you be running late, please inform me / us of your delay if possible. It may still be feasible to run the session, although your session may not be extended beyond your booked slot.

Develop Your Dog may take photos or videos for social media, advertising or instructional use (which in some cases may be part of the learning event itself). If you do not wish to appear in photos or videos at all, please let us know at the beginning of an event.

Develop Your Dog reserves the right to unilaterally amend and update the above Terms and Conditions at any time.
