Transfer/cancellation policy
No refunds.  Transfers must be taken within 60 days.  $50 transfer fee.

Enrollment Policy:

Diamonds in the Ruff reserves the right to accept or deny enrollment in any class, lecture or workshop by any applicant. Class sizes are limited and enrollment is a first come first served basis. Unfortunately, Diamonds in the Ruff is unable to pro-rate students for missed classes or classes that they are unable to attend. Should you miss a class, you may sit in on another class within the same week as a make-up for the class you missed to make sure you don't fall behind in your lessons.  In order to avoid impacting other full classes, make-ups will be without your dog unless specially arranged.   If you are gone the entire week, you may choose to catch the week you missed in the following month or talk to your instructor about scheduling a private catch-up lesson. 

Inclement Weather:

On rare occasions due to weather, it may be necessary to cancel a class. If classes are cancelled due to hazardous weather conditions, a make-up class will be scheduled.  (In general, unless the State Patrol issues a warning to stay off the roads, classes will be held as scheduled.)   If students are unable to attend the make-up class, students may drop into on another class without their dog as a make-up.

Diamonds in the Ruff Cancellation Policy:

Occasionally we may find it necessary to cancel a course or workshop due to low enrollment or other scheduling conflicts. If this occurs, registered students will be contacted and allowed to transfer to another class or be refunded the full course tuition.

Student Cancellation Policy:

Students will receive a 75% refund of tuition if a request to withdraw is received by Diamonds in the Ruff no later than 7 days prior to the first day of the course. Request to withdraw from a course less than 7 days prior to the first class session will not be eligible for tuition refunds. If you register for a class or workshop last minute (within 1 week of the class), this cancellation policy still applies.

Registration Agreement Statement:

I understand and agree that when I register, I have obligated myself to pay for the courses and all other charges related to this registration. If registering by bank card, I authorize Diamonds in the Ruff to charge my account the amount noted. If I decide to cancel my registration, I understand that the date I officially withdraw will determine the amount of refund, if any, I will receive.
