The Process

Thank you for the time you spent on our questionnaire. After completing the questionnaire, it will be added to your file. Once complete, you can schedule a call with a certified trainer, book a consultation, or book a class. 

During our initial call or consultation, we will delve into your unique needs and goals. This will enable us to craft a personalized plan that aligns perfectly with your puppy's or dog's behavior goals. Once this plan is ready, we will invite you for an assessment or book the service of your choice.

Force Free Training Agreement

Canine Learning Academy is a Force-Free training company. Force-free training teaches animals without pain, intimidation, threats, force, or coercion. We do not use collar corrections, scolding, or intentional aversive punishment. Instead, we teach dogs behaviors we want them to do so they have an opportunity to be successful rather than be punished for being a dog so they enjoy the learning process. In the spirit of force-free training philosophies, we do not allow choke chains, prong collars, or electronic collars in our group classes. If you use these tools for private training, we will work with you to find a path to phasing out this equipment.

Liability Waiver and Training Policies

I understand that the Consultant will work directly with me and my dog to impart contemporary animal behavior knowledge that best fits our needs and that success depends on a combination of learned skills from the dog and owner. Behavior is not static; an animal will not continue to perform even trained behaviors without ongoing practice. Especially in cases involving any type of aggression, although behavior may be modified, the dog is never considered “cured”. A dog’s behavior is ultimately the owner’s responsibility. The consultant will make every reasonable effort to help us attain goals but makes no guarantees of performance on the part of the Client or dog as a result of providing professional animal behavior consultations.

Canine Learning Academy, LLC will endeavor to create as safe an environment as possible for the training of my pet and will offer only sound, safe, and responsible training and training instructions. However, I acknowledge that there are certain unavoidable and inherent risks in any pet-related activity, including physical injury to me or to my pet and damage to my property. I, therefore, assume the risk of any injuries, damages, or loss that I might sustain as a result of participating in the Canine Learning Academy, LLC  training program, and my heirs and I hereby release Canine Learning Academy, LLC and its members, independent contractors, officers, agents, servants, employees, and affiliates, and I hereby indemnify such releases against and hold such releases harmless from any claims, costs, and causes of action, known or unknown, actual or contingent, which I have or may come to have as the result of or arising out of my participation (with my pet or otherwise) in the training program, and I waive the benefit of any statute which provides that unknown claims may not be waived. 

The client acknowledges that training/behavior modification may be an activity in which damage or injury to the dog(s) and/or persons may occur. The client will assume full financial/moral responsibility for the actions of their dog(s). Client further acknowledges that dog(s) may be exposed to a variety of environmental conditions which include, but are not limited to, vehicular travel, interaction with people and other animals, exposure to adverse weather, and exposure to areas with crowds and all types of traffic.

Further, I acknowledge and agree that I am and will remain responsible for the actions of my pet at all times. I hereby indemnify and hold harmless Canine Learning Academy, LLC  and its members, independent contractors, officers, agents, servants, employees, and affiliates of any claims of injury, expense, costs, or damages caused by or related to the actions or behavior of my pet while participating in the training program or at any time related thereto. I also understand that the recommendation of any other product or service does not guarantee my satisfaction with that product or service.
