General Liability Waiver

Pet Pals Dog Training are not liable for any injury to your dog or persons attending sessions. Whilst all care is taken during training if any dog during a training session causes injury, Pet Pals Dog Training and its employees are not liable for any costs arising out of such damage. Responsibility lies with the owner of the dog or person responsible. Reactive dogs must be handled by an adult person only.

Puppy School Group Classes: 

Our Puppy School group classes aren't suitable for very reactive puppies or puppies already displaying aggressive behaviours towards other dogs or people. These specific situations need to be worked individually with a private dog trainer on a one to one basis through a specific dog training program designed to suit that particular puppy.

If Pet Pals Dog Training finds that a dog isn’t suitable from participating in class or in a program for reasons related to the health and safety, the client will be notified and if the dog can’t join the program, a Veterinarian referral and course/program full payment refund will be issued to the respective client. If this occurs in a Puppy School group class, another dog training alternative will be offered to the client.

I understand and agree to abide by the above terms and conditions. 

I certify that the information given to Pet Pals Dog Training is complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge.

In times of COVID – Precautions

If the client or a member of its immediate family acquires COVID they are to let Adriana Milne know asap and the training session will be cancelled and reschedule to a suitable date/ time after the client and its family member has recovered from COVID and has done its period of isolation.

Adriana Milne has been vaccinated with Pfizer 4 times and has had a flu injection in 2023. If a client would like me to wear a face mask indoors when on a private consultation at their home, it'll be perfectly fine by me, the dog trainer.
