    By registering for this course, you agree to the following:

    The Humane Society of Sarasota County, Inc. (HSSC) wants you to be satisfied with your participation in our Pet Therapy Training Courses. For successful participation and enjoyment, we ask that you understand and agree to the following course requirements:

    1. If, upon reviewing your registration form, HSSC or its instructors feel your dog is not suitable for this course, they reserve the right to revoke your registration. You will be refunded at that time or moved to an appropriate course (subject to course availability).
    2. Unless otherwise stated, this course runs for four (4) consecutive weeks and there are no make-up classes.
    3. If we have fewer than three (3) students enrolled in a course, we will cancel the course and all registrants will be given the option to transfer to a different course or receive a full refund.
    4. If you need to cancel your registration, you must contact HSSC at least one week (7 days) before your course begins to receive a refund. If you do not notify us at least one week (7 days) before the course begins, no refund will be issued
    5. If you need to change your registration (i.e., move to another course), you must contact HSSC at least one week (7 days) before your original course begins. If you do not notify us at least one week (7 days) before the course begins, you will not be able to change courses and no refund will be issued. Course changes are subject to availability.
    6. Out of fairness to all participants, classes will begin promptly at the stated time.
    7. Each owner is responsible for providing proper training equipment and suitable treats.
    8. Please remember to wear closed-toe shoes to class.
    9. Remember that every interaction you have with your dog is a training opportunity. Either your dog is training you, or you are training your dog...it's your decision!
    10. If you or your dog is a disruption to the class, the trainer reserves the right to excuse the dog and handler.

    I understand that there are inherent risks associated with the presence of dogs in training. I assume full responsibility for myself, my dog, any other handlers of my dog, and any observers that attend my class with me. I agree that I have given full disclosure of any history of aggressive behavior by my dog, and understand that failure to do so will result in being excused from the class and no refund will be given. I agree to hold harmless HSSC, its staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors for any harm that may happen to me or my pet during the course of training. I understand that trainers may intervene in dog-to-dog interactions and separate dogs as needed. I grant full permission to HSSC to use any photographs or video recordings of this event for any purposes.
