Make-ups must be done during the current session of classes. Make-ups may not be carried forward into future sessions or pro-rated and applied to future classes; however, make-ups may be done prior to the class(es) that will be missed.

Check events.familydogevents.com for make-up options and then contact the office to let them know which class you’ll attend. This helps the instructor prepare a proper lesson plan.


  • All refunds are subject to a $30.00 processing fee and will be given only when a written request is received by email or fax within 24 hours of the first class meeting.
  • If the student attends the first class, and then requests a refund within 24 hours of the first class meeting, the pro-rated amount for the first class will also be deducted from the amount refunded.
  • No refunds will be given when requests are received more than 24 hours after the first class meeting.
  • Credit toward a future class (to be used within 90 days) may be granted when medical or veterinary emergencies force withdrawal from classes. (Doctor’s note may be required.)
