Once a Course has commenced, students may withdraw from the Dog Trainer Course (“the Course”) at any time during the six (6) weeks and receive a partial refund of tuition deposit on a pro-rata basis. All refund requests must be made in writing.

Refund amounts are calculated based on the date a written notification of withdrawal and a refund request is received by Hustle Up Dog Training by email to The number of business days required for notification deadlines is based on the official working days, excluding statutory holidays, Christmas holidays and unscheduled closures.


Tuition refunds will be prorated based upon the date of withdrawal from the Course, as follows. The tuition amount is $10,000.00, and the course runs for 6 weeks (42 days). The eligible refund amount that a student would be entitled to is $238.10 per remaining days of the Course. For example, if a student submits a refund request on day 20 of the course, they would be entitled to 22 days ($238.10 x 22 = $5238.20) minus the non-refundable fees which accrue to $2000.00. Therefore, the student’s refund amount total would be $3238.20.
