WEATHER POLICY

It is difficult to know in advance if a class will be cancelled due to bad weather as it can vary from mile to mile - and from hour to hour. So it's unlikely we will know in time to notify students but will post to the Animal Inn Training School Facebook Page in the event we make a preemptive decision to cancel classes. Typically the instructors will decide whether the weather warrants cancelling an agility class. We typically don't cancel for rain, heat or snow unless they are exceptional – we do cancel for lightning or tornado warnings in our direct space. If a class is cancelled by the instructors, we will give students in that class a credit towards the next session - NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN.
