K9Lifestyles Pet Dog Training                               

This is the boring bit…. lots of words that all sound quite serious! However, it is important that you read through this document and then we can get on to the fun stuff! Please note that payment services also implies full agreement with these Terms and Conditions.


The training techniques used by K9Lifestyles are based on the principles of positive reinforcement and, as such, are kind, fair and reward based. Harsh handling of dogs, physical force and the use of punitive methods/ punishment/ corrections or equipment designed to be aversive (including choke chains, check chains, prong collars, spray collars, e-collars or any other device deemed unacceptable by the trainer) are not permitted in training sessions and should not be used in training your dog.


Any instances of accident or injury must be reported to the trainer at the time they occurred. All dogs must be kept safe and it is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the safety of others (other animals and people) with regards to your dog’s behaviour at all times. Flexi leads (extending leads) are not permitted in training sessions in order to avoid injury. 

FACILITIES some of the locations we use do not have public conveniences. Where possible your Instructor does try to take this into consideration.


Due to the venues we use (various locations) K9Lifestyles will not be responsible for your vehicle or contents within. It is your responsibility to ensure the safe parking of your vehicle. Dogs will be worked individually therefore it is necessary that dogs can wait safely in the vehicle until it is their turn.


Children are very welcome to attend training sessions, with appropriate adult supervision. We accept no responsibility for children at training sessions and it is the responsibility of the supervising adult to ensure the children’s safety at all times. Young people under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.


All dogs and puppies should be suitably protected from the potential risk of disease, as well as being appropriately treated for internal and external parasites. K9Lifestyles advises that owners should consult their veterinary professional with regard to such issues. There can be no guarantee that there is absolutely no risk of disease at any venue or when in contact with any other dogs or materials, such as toys, which may have been in contact with other dogs. It is the owner/ handler’s responsibility to ensure that their dog is appropriately protected against the risk of disease: K9Lifestyles accepts no responsibility for the potential or actual exposure of dogs to disease. If an owner chooses not to routinely vaccinate their dog/ puppy (for example because they are choosing titre i or using homeopathic nosodes), this is entirely the choice of the owner and is a decision made at their own risk. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, you are accepting full responsibility for the protection of your dog from the risk of disease. Please advise us in advance of the session if your dog has been in contact with another dog infected by a contagious disease or if they appear to be unwell (e.g. vomiting, diarrhoea, coughing, runny nose etc.). Depending on the issue, it may be advisable for the session to be cancelled or re-arranged (see Cancellations). If your dog has any known allergies or intolerances to certain foods or has any other special needs, it is your responsibility to bring this to the attention of the trainer prior to the start of the session, and provide appropriate alternative treats. No bitches in season.
