POLICIES AT DESERT SAGE AGILITY
Class fees are $150 per six- week session for all new students at Desert Sage Agility. Once you have
completed three consecutive six-week sessions of classes, your class fees will be reduced to $120 per
session. Payment is due one week prior to your class start date. Ongoing classes also are paid on
week 6 of your session in order to re-enroll.
If you purchase a series of classes and find you are unable to complete the series, we will do what we
can to help you find someone to take your place. However, we do not issue refunds for unused
classes in the event a replacement cannot be found. Please contact us if you find, for whatever
reason, you cannot complete your series of classes. If we can fill your spot from our alternate waiting
list, we will do so.
RE-ENROLLMENT IN FOLLOWING CLASS SESSION
If you are re-enrolling for the next session of your class, payment is due on week 6 of your current
session- This means you must prepay for the next session of classes you plan to take. Hopefully, this
will encourage students to maintain consistency in their training, give us a better idea of how many
students we have in classes, and when to call people on the waiting lists.
If classes are canceled by the instructor for any reason, they will not be deducted from your paid
session and will be made up by continuing on an extra week. You are expected to call the class
confirmation number (phone # 541-322-8726 updated daily) before each class to confirm that it is
We are unable to offer makeups for classes that you miss due to vacations, illness, or fatigue. If th
ere is need of an extended leave of absence due to injury this will be individually discussed to fin
d a reasonable solution but is done so at the discretion of the owner of Desert Sage Agility. If you
want to keep your spot in class - then you must pay for it to reserve your spot. We make every effort
to keep our rosters full. We cannot provide refunds after the start date of any class or workshop.
There are no refunds for scheduling conflicts or illness (dog or human).
HEALTHY AND HAPPY ONLY:
Dogs that are not feeling well or are unsound (limping) should be rested and not made to work. If your
dog has been coughing, vomiting, has diarrhea or is limping- please do not bring them to class. Our
goals are that your dog enjoy themselves here safely and that they not have pain associated with
agility training. You are welcome to come audit the class without your dog. Please note, that being
overweight is not healthy for your dog and to avoid chance of injury they will be jumping a lower jump
height until they are fit.
ORGANIZED IS BEST:
Please come to class prepared and organized. Pre- cut your treats. Have a few toys your dog might
like. Notebook and pen for notes. Video camera! Optional but highly recommended! Arrive 15
minutes early to class to potty yourself and your dog. Warm up and stretch! Do not enter arena until
your class time is ready to begin unless you have cleared it with your instructor. If you come so early
and are practicing- then an arena rental fee will be assessed.
Price is $15 per dog per hour. Only by appointment

Desert Sage offers a $5 discount off classes for children taking lessons here (as of 10/16/06).
