is this to much to ask?

I'm a dog trainer. in my older classes, I specifically say the older dogs have to be socialized/dog friendly or i can decide to kick you out of the class. in the puppy classes, we socialize before training. anyway someone signed up for the older class and she had a muzzle on the dog and he lunged at every single dog in the class. I told her to leave and she wouldn't be getting a refund either because I expect the older dogs to be social. I also said that I could train her dog at her home if she needed but he was not allowed in my classes.


is it too much to ask? really is it? shelters require dogs be social before you can adopt them so why shouldn't it be the same for training classes? I already spend 12 hours on the weekends socializing dogs at the shelters, I don't need to attempt to do it in an hour class when my attention will be on your dog because you couldn't properly socialize him.

I don't think so.  Makes sense to me.  Why would you bring a dog who hasn't been socialized around a bunch of other dogs?  That's just asking for trouble.  If a person needs help socializing then they can have one on one classes with a trainer.  Not in a group.

I'd refund her. Or give half the amount of lessons she bought at her house.

I'm not going to refund someone who deliberately ignored what my site says.

I would not refund her either. To many people think rules don't apply to them.
