Complaints, Concerns & Feedback!

Sue hopes that you will enjoy coming so much that you will stay forever but if you intend to stop coming then please let her know as there maybe someone awaiting a place. Please see above terms and conditions for payment.

1. PARKING: There is a dedicated car park at the front for the stables, dog training, cafe & shops. If this is full you can park between The Pantry & Granary Room. Please take great care to drive extremely slowly and give way to horses and pedestrians. When closing car doors please be aware that horses my take fright with loud noises. Do not block gates and entrances. Special parking permissions will apply for workshops.

If you do need to park near the training area then please ask.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE DOGS IN THE CAR IN WARM WEATHER EVEN FOR A FEW SECONDS.
PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOGS ON A LEAD.

2. WHAT TRAINING GEAR DO I NEED FOR MY DOG?
Harnesses are fine but by law your dog must also have a collar with ID (see below)
We advice that A normal clip on lead on a flat collar is the best. Puppy lead or training lead. (We have leads for sale) FLEXI LEADS are not suitable for training.
Head collars can be used for obedience and for control between exercises, but are not safe when doing agility.
Make sure your dog has a name tag with your contact details on a collar.
This is required by law. The Control of Dogs Order 1992 states that ‘any dog in a public place should wear the name and address of the owner either inscribed on the collar or a name plate or disc attached to it’
Please ensure that your equipment is fitted securely and will not slip over your dog’s head.
NO CHECK CHAINS, PRONG COLLARS ALLOWED!

3.TRAINING TREATS & TOYS Please bring your dog’s favourite toy, balls on ropes, and tug types are the best for motivating them. No squeaky ones please.
Treats? Part of your dog’s daily food ration, Cocktail sausage, hot dog sausage, cooked chicken, meaty strips, and cheese. Treats must be prepared in pea sized pieces to be easily eaten. You will need a plentiful supply of these, easily accessible in a container, Treat bag, bum bag or pocket, not plastic bags! No crumbly treats please as crumbs on the floor will distract other dogs. Treats are on sale if you run out. Please note; IF your dog is on a special diet then be advised by YOUR VET.

Sue also welcomes Clicker training.

3. WHAT TRAINING GEAR DO I WEAR? Make sure you wear suitable comfy clothing for outdoors. Layers are best. You must use sensible and suitable footwear such as Trainers, Stout Shoes or Boots with non slip soles. The grass can get very slippy when wet. Loose fitting shoes like sandals, heels of any kind, or similar light footwear are totally unsuitable and could put you or others at risk of personal injury.
When training indoors please dress as outside, there isn’t any heating. We will train in most weathers. If you can get there we will train. Check your emails, texts, facebook and our website pages for any cancellations. If in doubt contact Sue.

4. AGILITY EQUIPMENT: NOT TO BE USED UNSUPERVISED! ADUSTMENTS TO THE EQUIPMENT SHOULD ONLY BE MADE WITH FULL CONSENT OF THE INSTRUCTOR. Children are always welcome, but please make sure they do not climb on the equipment. PUPPIES UP TO 1 YEAR ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE LARGE AGILITY EQUIPMENT. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW DOGS TO PEE ON THE EQUIPMENT.

5. CANCELLATIONS: Classes maybe cancelled due to illness, weather conditions, holidays or training seminars. You will receive good warning in advance wherever possible.
Please check on SIT Dog Training website or facebook for cancellations, also make sure you have supplied your email address and mobile number and keep them updated. Sue will email & text you. If in doubt, please contact Sue on the morning of training to make sure.

6. CONDUCT EXPECTED OF ALL HANDLERS & THEIR DOGS:
Please keep your dog under close control when working on and off lead.

Please do not allow your dogs to bark all the time. it is normal for some to bark when excited or worried. However it is extremely unpleasant for others and both the dog training instructors and the horse riding instructors need to be heard. Other handlers must be able to hear the class instructor, so please focus on your dog and don't let it bark continually. Keeping your dog distracted with obedience, tricks and toys will help this. We can also help you so please take our advice. We risk losing this training establishment otherwise. Thank you for your cooperation.

All dogs must be kept on-lead at all times, except when required by your instructor to be off-lead. This is an equestrian centre. Horses are prey animals and can take flight at the slightest thing. Dogs are both prey and predators.

Harsh handling of dogs, smacking, kicking, check/choke chains, and the various punishment collars (e.g. citronella), water spray bottles, rattle cans are not permitted.

Please allow sufficient space between dogs in class so as not to provoke any unwanted aggression.
Do not allow your dog to stare into other dogs eyes.
If there is a risk that your dog may bite another if it enters their space, then you may be asked to muzzle your dog with a Baskerville type muzzle in between exercises.

Extremely aggressive dogs will not be allowed at group sessions.
Please ask Sue for advice.

Do not treat other people’s dogs without their permission.
Ask before handling and approaching other people’s dogs.

The Field can be used to give your dog chance to let off steam and toilet before training, however, do not let off lead when other owners are in the field and remember to pick up after your dog. Bins are situated in both training areas. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR DOG TO PEE ON THE EQUIPMENT! Encourage toileting outside the training areas. Please make sure that the field entrance gate is secured when entering and leaving. Please bring poo bags and clean up after your dog and dispose of in the bins provided.
SIT Dog Training promotes responsible dog ownership.

Some dogs do not cope well in class situations. If it is decided that the class is not for your dog then you will be offered alternative training.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN DOGS BEHAVIOUR. SHOULD YOU ALLOW YOU’RE DOG TO INVADE ANOTHER DOGS SPACE HE/SHE MAY GET BITTEN AS THE DOG ON THE LEAD MAY FEEL THREATENED AND SIT DOG TRAINING WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE.

5. VACCINATION & HEALTH: Please make sure that your dog is on a regular vaccination program and micro chipped. You may be asked to show proof of this. We also accept Titre testing.
If your dog is unwell or has kennel cough please inform Sue and stay away from training until clear. If you feel unwell then also consider staying away as partaking in strenuous exercise is not advisable when your body is coping with infection.
NO BITCHES IN SEASON ALLOWED to attend classes. They must be clear for at least 5 days before returning.

6. REFRESHMENTS: The PANTRY provides drinks and food everyday, whether you want a drink a snack or a full meal. Dogs are not allowed in the café. Outside seating available http://www.thepantry8020.co.uk/
CLUBHOUSE Within the indoor arena and is for everyone’s use. It is heated and contains vending machines with Hot drinks and snacks. Spectators can sit in comfort with viewing windows overlooking the horse and dog arenas. You are welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks.

7. TOILETS: There are toilet and washroom facilities on site situated at the end of the stable block behind the farmhouse and within the cafe.

9. WHERE WILL I FIND A FIRST AIDER? AND WHERE IS THE FIRST AID POINT? THE FIRST AID POINT IS IN THE STABLES OFFICE. All members of Grove House staff are first aid qualified. Sue is a Qualified Canine First Aider.

WHAT DO I DO IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE? Alert a member of staff in the first instance and always follow directions given by members of staff or other responsible persons.
The fire bell will be rung or the staff will draw your attention to it.
WHERE IS THE FIRE ASSEMBLY POINT?
On hearing the fire alarm you should assemble on the footpath outside the main entrance gate.

SMOKING: No smoking in all areas with the exception of the car park.

10. CHILDREN: Families are always very welcome and Children make great trainers! All children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult. If there is more than one of you then make sure you take turns in training your dog. Giving mutiple commands is very confusing for them. Mums & Dads can of course help their children. Please remind your little ones not to approach other dogs without asking.

11. PAYMENT: by cash, cheque, Bacs, mobile & PayPal.
Please see Payment Details above.
