Please take a few moments to read through the following policies to be sure you're prepared when you arrive for training & events.
Arriving at the Studio
Prepare to enjoy training your dog! Click the following link for orientation information and class instructions before attending classes:
General Class Info
Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis determined by receipt of payment. Enrollment is not confirmed until payment is received (see 'payment', below). Cash or checks only, please.
Safety for Children & Dogs
For their safety and for the comfort of all dogs in our studio, children must be under the direct supervision of an adult at all times.
We discourage nose-to-nose greetings on the premises to ensure the comfort and safety of all dogs. For very social dogs we may have special opportunities. Please speak with your Instructor.
Dogs must be under control at all times. Dogs must be kept on leash unless otherwise directed by your Instructor. Dogs must never be left unattended.
Owners/Handlers are responsible for prompt clean up of ALL dog waste both indoors and on the property. Please bring doggie bags with you to class and dispose of all waste in specified locations. If you do not have a bag, let you Instructor know and we will provide clean up supplies for you.
Females in Season
Females in season will not be permitted to attend class unless permission has been granted by your Instructor. Owners may still attend class.
Dogs deserve sick days, too. Please do not attend classes or events if your dog has been ill. Notify your Instructor in advance for make-up options.
Dogs must be current on Rabies and Distemper vaccinations and will not be permitted to participate until proper documentation has been provided. Bordatella (Kennel Cough) vaccinations are recommended, but not required.
Cash and checks only, please. Please take note of your Instructor for payment purposes.
We depend on meeting our enrollment numbers to start each class. Please set up an appointment to observe a class prior to registering to ensure FFD, Inc. is the right choice for you and your dog. No refunds will be issued for cancellations after class has begun.
If we feel that it is unsafe to be on the roads due to inclement weather conditions, we may cancel classes. If public schools are closed, it is safe to assume that our studio will be closed also.
All cancellations will be posted on our HOME PAGE. You may also contact us at 207.251.2296. It is your responsibility to check for cancellations.
These rules are designed to ensure a safe and positive experience for every dog and handler team partaking in classes and events at our Studio!
Dog owners are responsible for any and all damages and liabilities caused by their dog to any person or property.
