Please read these terms and conditions carefully before using Our Service.

Force Free Training Agreement

Building Bonds is a Force-Free training company. Force-free training is teaching an animal without pain, intimidation, threats, force, or coercion. We do not use collar corrections, scolding, or intentional aversive punishment. Instead, we teach dogs behaviors we want them to do so they have an opportunity to be successful rather than be punished for being a dog so they enjoy the learning process. In the spirit of force-free training philosophies, we do not allow choke chains, prong collars, or electronic collars in our group classes. For private training, if you use these tools we will work with you to find a path to phasing out this equipment.

Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy

Group Class:

  • Once your space is reserved with payment in a group class, no refunds are provided.
  • We do not provide makeup sessions or refunds for missed group classes.
  • No show appointments for classes count as a used appointment.

Private Training

  • Once you schedule and pay for a program, should you cancel your first appointment and program, you will receive a refund minus a $100 cancelation fee.
  • Once a training program has started, No refunds are provided.


  • After the commencement of all training programs, clients are allowed one session to be rescheduled due to an emergency or illness. Canceled appointments must be rescheduled within one week of cancellation. Failure to do so results in forfeiture of that training session.
  • Subsequent rescheduling and cancellations result in forfeiture of those sessions.
  • No show appointments and appointments canceled without 24-hour notice, count as a session in your training program.
  • Frequent rescheduling, canceling or no-show appointments may result in termination of services. If services are terminated due to more than one no show appointment or rescheduling more than two appointments, a refund will not be provided.

Refund Policy

Group Class:

WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS once a client has registered and secured a spot in a group class.

In order to protect all participants, Building Bonds reserves the right to decline to work with any pet who presents behavior issues that may be overly dangerous, disruptive, or that may be exacerbated by participation in a group training session. If behavior issues are discovered during a group training class, and the trainer determined that it is in everyone’s best interest to discontinue group training classes, you will be provided a refund (less an administration fee of $50) of the balance of unused classes, or balance will be applied toward private lessons.

Private Training

  • If you cancel your training program before your first session, you will be provided a refund minus a $100 cancelation fee. No refunds are provided once a training program has begun with a first appointment.
  • Building Bonds will make every effort to coordinate, schedule, and complete all prepaid sessions. New Dog 101 and Perfect Pooch training programs are to be completed within 12 weeks of the first appointment. Fretful Fido training programs are to be completed within 3-6 months of the first appointment. All other private training programs are to be completed in the time frame indicated in each program.

Should there be a lapse in your training program, Building Bonds will send one in writing inquiry to attempt to complete your training program. If you fail to coordinate, schedule and complete your training sessions within the above mentioned time frame, your remaining sessions will be forfeited. No refund will be provided.

ONCE A TRAINING PROGRAM HAS COMMENCED, WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS except in the event of a medical condition that impedes on the ability to train your pet or behavioral euthanasia.

Please see our rescheduling and cancelation policy for more information on using your sessions to best benefit you and your pet.

Training Agreement

I understand that the Consultant will work directly with me and my dog to impart contemporary animal behavior knowledge that best fits our needs, and that successful companion dog programs depend on a combination of learned skills on the part of the dog and owner. Behavior is not static; an animal will not continue to perform even trained behaviors without ongoing practice. Especially in cases involving any type of aggression, although behavior may be modified, the dog is never considered “cured”. A dog’s behavior is ultimately the owner’s responsibility. Consultant will make every reasonable effort to help us attain goals but makes no guarantees of performance on the part of Client or dog as a result of providing professional animal behavior consultations.

Client acknowledges that training/behavior modification may be an activity in which damage or injury to dog(s) and/or persons may occur. Client will assume full financial/moral responsibility for the actions of their dog(s). Client further acknowledges that dog(s) may be exposed to a variety of environmental conditions which include, but are not limited to, vehicular travel, interaction with people and other animals, exposure to adverse weather, and exposure to areas
with crowds and all types of traffic.

Building Bonds, LLC will endeavor to create as safe an environment as possible for the training of my pet and will offer only sound, safe, and responsible training and training instructions. However, I acknowledge that there are certain unavoidable and inherent risks in any pet-related activity, including physical injury to me or to my pet and damage to my property. I therefore assume the risk of any injuries, damages or loss which I might sustain as a result of participating in the Building Bonds, LLC training program and I and my heirs hereby release Building Bonds, LLC and its members, independent contractors, officers, agents, servants, employees, and affiliates, and I hereby indemnify such releases against and hold such releases harmless from any and all claims, costs and causes of action, known or unknown, actual or contingent, which I have or my come to have as the result of or arising out of my participation (with my pet or otherwise) in the training program, and I waive the benefit of any statute which provides that unknown claims may not be waived. Further, I acknowledge and agree that I am and will remain responsible for the actions of my pet at all times and I hereby indemnify and hold harmless Building Bonds, LLC and its members, independent contractors, officers, agents, servants, employees, and affiliates of any and all claims of injury, expense, costs, or damages caused by or related to the actions or behavior of my pet while participating in the training program or at any time related thereto. I also understand that the recommendation of any other product or service is not a guarantee of my satisfaction with that product or service.
