At Churnet Valley Dog we arenice to our dogs. We aim to enhance the relationship with our dogs by usingkind methods of training. We reward our dogs when they get it right withappropriate rewards for that dog such as treats and play and always voicepraise to put ourselves into the reward. We make the exercises achievable bybreaking them down into small parts so the dog feels some success and keepstress levels low. We set our dogs up for success and make progress when thedog is ready. We want our dogs to enjoybeing in class and want to do the training exercises.

Hitting, shouting at,pushing, shoving, dragging, or any other forceful behaviour which could do harmto a dog will not tolerated it is unnecessary and causes stress and fear notonly to your dog but to others in the class. Clients who do it will be advisedand taught a better way but repeat offenders will be asked to leave. No shock collars, prongcollars or harnesses with prongs, choke chains, spray cans, rattle cans or anyequipment which has the potential to do harm both physical and mental to a dogare allowed in class or endorsed for any use. If clients turn up with any of these the willhave to take them off, they will advised of more appropriate equipment and thepotential harm these things can do will be explained."

"My policy for paying for courses is that the course must be paid for in full before or on the first class. Missed classes can be taken in other classes. If you cannot attend the first class and haven't paid you must contact me and arrange to pay, if not I will fill your space. This way enables me to organize the classes, keep them small and keep the course prices down. Late payments on week two must be cash, paypal, or bank transfer. "
