Puppies under 6 months require their first set of DHPP; two sets are recommended.
Dogs and puppies over 6 months require current DHPP and rabies; bordetella (kennel cough) recommended.
Proof of vaccinations by a certified vet. Canine Addiction cannot accept self administered shots.
What to Bring:
Have a lot of very high value treats such as hotdogs, cheese, or chicken. If you do not feed your dog people food use a very strong-smelling treat such as a fish scent
Whatever you think you need for treats, double it.
Bring some of your dog’s favourite toys to use as a reward.
For any Program:
A standard 6-foot leash and flat collar or harness are required. Retractable leashes, prong and choke collars are not allowed.
Safety will be a key component of the class. Please ensure you follow the trainer’s instructions. Any student that shows disorderly behaviour or lack of safety for their dog or others may be asked to leave class without a refund.
Dogs will be kept on leash and 6 feet apart unless specifically told otherwise. Many dogs are very excited and/or timid when they first come in, therefore dog socialization is discouraged. This helps reinforce focus on the handler and not the environment.
Training can be a family affair. If you are bringing children under 12 years old, please ensure they can stay quiet and seated. Visiting other dogs and walking/running can be dangerous and is not permitted. If the child is struggling with the dog, the parent is required to take over. Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, only one person per dog may attend class at a time.
Please have your mobile phone on silent mode and take any calls outside of the training area.
Any missed classes on the part of the student will not be refunded.
In the unforeseen event the trainer needs to cancel a class, students will receive an email and a phone call as soon as possible, and a make up session or refund will be given.
