Terms & Conditions

Welcome to York City Dog Training Club. We hope you will enjoy training your dog. We aim to provide a safe environment in which you and your dog can learn. To achieve this, we ask you to read and adhere to the following:

  • Responsibility – Handlers are responsible for the control and behaviour of their dogs at all times. Please make sure that you have firm hold of your lead at all times and allow distance between your dog and other handlers and dogs at all times.
  • Although by no means mandatory we advise all owners to get suitable Dog Insurance. Specifically one which includes Public Liability / Third Party Liability.
  • Approaching other dogs – Please do not allow your dog or puppy to approach or interact with other dogs unless directed to do so by your instructor.
  • We have created seating Zones/Stations for you around the hall – please do not allow your dog to stray into / move into another dog’s zone when you are moving around the hall
  • No young person under the age of 18 can train their dog at YCDTC
  • Leads Dogs must be kept on a standard flat lead attached with a clip to a collar or harness at all times unless handlers are asked by an instructor to release them. 
  • Extender leads and Rope slip leads are not suitable for training purposes. Please use a normal clip lead whilst training.
  • All dogs must wear a collar with identity tag attached. Please use a suitable collar, harness, or head collar on which to attach the dog’s lead. We do not allow Check Collars or Prong Collars.
  • Your Instructor may ask you to work with your dog using one of the Club’s Long Line leads. This is to ensure the safety of your dog and others. Any dog deemed unsafe to work on an exercise may be excluded from that exercise at the instructors discretion.
  • Aggressive Dogs Whilst we endeavour to temperament test in advance any new dog coming to YCDTC, some dogs may display aggression issues within a class situation.

    We are not able to retain such dogs in our classes so would provide you with an assessment and advice for suitable alternatives. This is for the safety of our clients and instructors.

    Temperament tests do not normally apply to dogs in puppy classes but we reserve the right to temperament test any dog or puppy prior to accepting them onto a course.

  • Please advise us in advance of any issues or problems you may have with your dog. For example excessive barking.
  • Please wear suitable clothing and Footwear. 

Vaccinations

Please ensure your dog has an up-to-date vaccination certificate.

(Although it is not mandatory we would strongly advise all dogs have  Kennel Cough Vaccination)

Vaccination Status will be checked on week one of your course.

Identification Discs

The Law and The Kennel Club state that dogs must wear an identification tag attached to the collar.   These tags must state the following:

Owner’s name,
House number or name and street name,
Post code
Telephone number. (Ideally mobile number)

Microchips

In England all dogs over eight weeks’ old must be microchipped and registered with their keeper’s contact details. All keepers, including breeders, must keep these details up to date.

Dogs new to YCDTC will be scanned to confirm they have a Microchip Number    

Bitches in Season

  • If your dog comes into season in the 3 weeks before or at any time during the course, please advise your instructor immediately. The dog will need to be kept away from club for up to 3 weeks.
  • YCDTC will endeavour to either help you catch up with extra training, or you may need to attend a new course at a pro rata rate.
  • If your bitch comes into season on a test week (week nine) we will arrange a mutually convenient time to test your dog.
