Terms and Conditions
Please be aware that all dogs must be fully vaccinated to attend our facility. A valid vaccination certificate must be presented at your first session. As concerns grow over the health risks of vaccinations we are also happy to accept a clear titre test result from your veterinarian. We do not require dogs to be vaccinated for kennel cough. If they have had Kennel Cough or been vaccinated for it they must stay away from the premises for 14 days from the vaccination date or from symptoms showing clear. Failure to bring along proof of vaccinations may result in you being turned away from your session.
We will also require you to fill in and bring along a training form which can be downloaded to the left of this text box. .
When paying online you will be allocated a slot in the class you have chosen from the drop down menu. For private sessions/home visits please contact us to make an appointment before you book.

Prior to booking a training place with Central Bark, please consider your availability and schedule. All training sessions (classes and private training) are booked/ paid for in advance. As a small business we are left personally out of pocket in the case of last minute cancellation.
Upon booking a class we reserve a spot for you in a class of limited numbers. If you wish to cancel a class space Central Bark require 7 working days notice in order to refund your class fee. 10% will be deducted for administration charges.
Unfortunately we are unable to refund if a cancellation is made after this time, nor are we are able to issue partial refunds for missed classes or transfer the funds towards other services offered.
If you or your dog is unable to attend due to an injury or illness during your course, we will do our best to find you a space in a suitable class; but this cannot be guaranteed. If we cancel a class, you will receive a full refund with the exception of circumstances beyond our control such as extreme weather.
lease note no refunds will be given for cancellation/date changes due to Covid restrictions/forced lockdown. All classes will be honoured at a later date or exchanged for another class or private training sessions.
If a private training session is cancelled or rescheduled with less than 48 hours notice the payment will be lost.
