Fine Print

Once you have fully read our Fine Print, along with our FAQ document, simply copy and paste the red text below and email it to info@kissdogtraining.com  This will act as your electronic signature that you have read, understood and agree with all Fine Print and FAQ’s

I have read and agree with the terms of K.I.S.S. Dog Training’s Fine Print and FAQ, as stated on the website.

 

Private in-home sessions include driving mileage of 20 miles each way from Shawnee, KS. Any further than the included 40 miles of travel is an additional $1.00 per mile. So, if you are 25 miles from Shawnee the extra charge per visit would be $10.00 per visit: $5.00 each way of coverage.

Aggressive dogs have an additional fee per session. An aggressive dog is one that has a bite history with dogs or people. A trainer can also deem a dog as aggressive during training. That fee is $40.00 per session. 

IF YOU SHOULD CHOOSE TO TRAIN A DOG THAT FALLS INTO THIS CATEGORY, OR ONE THAT HAS BITTEN, YOU ACCEPT ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACTIONS OF THIS DOG. BE SURE YOU ARE WILLING TO PUT IN THE TIME, ATTENTION AND PRACTICE WITH THE DOG. NOT TO MENTION THE CIVIL AND LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY.

Private in-home training sessions are held on:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the following times slots, 9 am to 10 am, 12 pm to 1 pm, 3 pm to 4 pm and 6 pm to 7 pm (20.00 fee for evenings after 5) 

Tuesdays and Thursdays are when I teach group classes, but I do offer private in-home sessions at the following times, 9 am to 10 am and 4 pm to 5 pm.

I also offer Saturday sessions for an additional $20 fee per session; these are on a first come first serve basis. These must fit around my group classes in Independence and the Classes I teach at Shawnee Mission Medical Center.

There is an extra charge of $20 per session for sessions after 5 pm and Saturdays. 

Evening and Saturday session must fit with my schedule as well, and sometimes are not available

Due to volume of business and group class commitments these options are the best way to reach as many clients as we can. We apologize if they do not fit your schedule.

Our “Diamonds in The Ruff” group class is a six-week beginner class, and it is held at both the Merriam and Independence campuses of Great Plains SPCA. The Merriam Classes are always on Tuesday or Thursdays (6:30 pm to 7:30 pm) and the Independence class is always on Saturdays (1:30 pm to 2:30 pm). Starting dates vary so please call the office at 913-269-7595 for info or reservation info.

We also offer an intermediate group class at the Merriam Campus of the SPCA. Starting dates vary so please call the office at 913-269-7595 for info or reservation info. There must be 5 dogs reserved to hold an intermediate class… 

Attending class is up to you, the client. Once training has started we do not offer refunds on the group classes. Dog training is both a commitment in time and money, not only for the owner but also for the trainer as well. You can transfer to another class if space is available for a fee of $40.00.

Once training has started we do not offer refunds for private instruction either. If there are any questions please call 913-269-7595 and discuss before signing up. We also require a $50.00 Non-Refundable Deposit for booking private sessions or reserving spots in group classes. Your appointments will not be valid until payment is received (the exception are our classes at Shawnee Mission Medical Center).

It takes the time and resources of both the trainer and office staff to call, discuss, answer questions and to get folks set up in the calendar or to reserve spots in class rosters. This non-refundable deposit will cover that time in the case of cancellations. So, it is critical that if you chose to work with Kiss Dog Training that you are as committed as we are and plan to follow through with the training.

If you have any questions please call the office before scheduling your appointments. Payment is still due at the time of our first session but will be reduced by the amount of the 50.00 non-refundable deposit.

We cannot hold time slots for people; sessions are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis, and deposit must be received to lock in the appointment.

If cancellations become an issue we will require prepayment for services.

We also require a 48-hour notification for cancellations on private sessions. If you cancel your appointment with less than 48 hours notice you will be assessed a $40.00 cancellation fee and payment of the invoice will be required before rescheduling can occur.

Keep in mind even cancellations within the 48-hour notice can and will create issues, such as having to wait up to 2-3 weeks for available reschedule dates.

Dogs that are fearful, reactive or aggressive are not candidates for our group classes. If you are unsure, please call with questions. Dogs exhibiting these behaviors will be asked to transfer to private instruction, so that there is no disruption for the rest of the clients in the class. There are no refunds, but there are always options for you and your dog to receive training.

Dogs must be at least 20 weeks old to attend “The Diamonds in The Ruff” beginner group class. The “Tiny Diamonds in the Ruff” in-home session is available for puppies. Contact us for more details. See details in the Training Tab of the website.

No prong or choke collars.

No retractable leashes.

Training treats are to be brought by the humans. If you do not bring treats, the distraction of this class is going to make success very difficult and frustrating for you to achieve. I recommend soft, smelly and yummy treats that will keep Fido’s attention (even in the distractions of a group class).

Dog training is about consistency and frequency. Practice daily for short intervals, 10-15 minutes each, a couple of times a day.

Dog training is 70% management (paying attention to the dog and eliminating the opportunity to make mistakes) and 30% training.

Your veterinarian should be part of the training process. Keep him or her in the loop with all aspects of your training.

We require documentation of up-to-date vaccinations: We will expect you to show us these documents at the beginning of all group classes or private sessions.

Any books or articles we send you are part of the training process, and you should read and review them to make sure that you completely understand the process.

Each person in the family must be on the same page and pulling in the same direction, otherwise it will slow down or create a negative training process.

Your dog’s behavior and well-being are your responsibility, and it is up to you to be an advocate for your dog. Never put them in a situation they cannot handle.

Trainer does not carry cash, so please provide exact change for cash payments. We also accept checks, credit cards and payments via PayPal for your convenience.
