Group Class Policies

  • The registration fee is required to reserve your space in a class. This fee is non-refundable after class has commenced.


  • For Puppy Socialization and Manners -  Distemper, Hepatitis, and Parvovirus vaccines must be up to date. We need to see your vaccination records  (invoice or certificate) at the first class.

  • For Older dogs Vaccinations for Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, and Rabies, must be up-to-date.

  • We do recommend that dogs have been vaccinated for Bordatella (Kennel Cough).


  • Only dogs in good health and free of parasites may attend classes. If your dog is feeling unwell, has diarrhea or other signs of potential illness please keep them home.  You are welcome to come to class without your dog if they are under the weather. We run a weekly Missed a Class zoom session to help you with your training


  • Females in heat may attend class at the instructor’s discretion and will need to wear a protective covering.


  • If in the opinion of an instructor, a dog is extremely unmanageable or stressed, or is unduly disturbing other dogs in the class, the instructor may ask that the dog leave the class. If a dog is asked to leave a class, fees paid may be used towards a private lesson(s).


  • If you miss a lesson or wish to review, your class materials are available and we currently run a zoom session once a week called Missed a Class. Please contact the office for information. No dog may be transferred to another class without prior approval.


  • Successful course completion requires not more than two absences.


  • Carolark will set the time and location of each class. Every attempt will be made to hold one class per week at the same time and location.


  • A flat collar or body harness and a leash that is no more than 6 feet long should be used in the classes. Please also see our Preparing for Class Guidelines.

These policies have been prepared so that all classes may be conducted in an orderly manner, and so that you and your dog may obtain the maximum benefit and pleasure. Thank you for your participation.


Please help keep Stittsville clean and pick up after your dog.
