Classes recur each week at the same time on the same day of the week as indicated until the session is completed. Please note that clients taking Canine Life Skills 1 will come without their dog to their first week of class.
If behaviour issues (e.g. barking, reactivity, and/or fear) are going to prevent a dog from learning in the class environment then it will need to be addressed.
Not sure of the best fit? Please review this chart comparing Behaviour Consult/Reactive Dog class/Arousal class/Life Skills class to see which option addresses your needs, or reach out to our staff by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to 705-812-3467 and let us help you.
Red Barn Event Centre welcomes all family members who will be interacting with the puppy/dog to attend our classes, however, with safety as our number one priority we require there to be an adult holding the leash both in the parking lot and in/out of our reception at all times. Children who are not actively participating in the training in class must be supervised by an additional adult whose attention can be focused directly on that child's supervision and safety.
Important information: ALL REFUNDS AND CREDITS, when granted, ARE SUBJECT TO A $25+hst ADMIN FEE. Refunds for class withdrawal are only available up until one week prior to class start, after this time there are NO refunds for people that withdraw from classes. Red Barn credit for class withdrawal or class transfer with more than 48 hours notice will be considered and dealt with on an individual basis but generally class transfers are only permitted under extenuating circumstances. For the safety of all, we require parvo/distemper and rabies (at the appropriate age) vaccines for all dogs entering the Red Barn Event Centre. Bordetella vaccination is recommended but not required. Please consult your veterinarian for the appropriate vaccination protocol for your puppy or dog. We ask that you provide that information within 48 hours, to complete your registration. We also require a copy of your vaccination records prior to first class to permit entry into the building. Enrollment is not confirmed until class is paid in full, and proof of vaccinations is provided. "Bitches in season" are always welcome to class, please ensure they are wearing appropriate pants.
Inclement Weather: Class cancellation decisions with respect to weather will be made by 1:00pm (heat) or 3:00pm (snow) whenever possible. The Red Barn voice mail message will be updated (705)812-3467 and a Facebook message will be posted (be sure to FOLLOW the Red Barn Event Centre!). Effective November 1, 2018, classes cancelled due to inclement weather will have one additional week added to the end of the session. In the case where subsequent cancellations are required in the same session, an alternate make up date will be provided within that week to make up the lesson or a credit will be offered for the missed class on a case by case basis.
