Terms and conditions

Liability exemption

Pfötchenhof Pfalz shall be liable for any damage incurred only to the extent that such damage is based on the violation of a material contractual obligation or on intentional or grossly negligent conduct by us, our legal representatives or vicarious agents. If an essential contractual obligation is breached due to slight negligence, our liability shall be limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract. An essential contractual obligation is given in the case of obligations, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place or on the observance of which the customer has relied and was entitled to rely.

Any further liability for damages is excluded. Liability for culpable injury to life, limb or health in accordance with the statutory provisions shall remain unaffected.


Participation requirements

The prerequisite for participation in one of our courses and lessons requires possession of a valid and well-maintained vaccination certificate and the associated vaccination protection. We follow the vaccination recommendations of the StIKo Vet. Furthermore, the participant confirms with the agreement of the GTCs to have a valid dog liability insurance for the participating dog. He records this in writing with his signature on the registration form in addition to the GTC. If Pfötchenhof Pfalz has reasonable doubts even after the start of the training, the documents must be submitted immediately. Likewise, the dog owner declares that the participating dog is healthy and has no health restrictions that need to be considered separately during the training/exercises. Should this nevertheless be the case, or should it change during the period of cooperation, Pfötchenhof must be informed immediately and in writing before the next training session. This is urgently necessary in order to adjust the training accordingly in advance. Depending on the individual case, Pfötchenhof Pfalz reserves the right to suspend a training until the clarification of the dog’s health by the veterinarian has taken place and its harmlessness or exact restriction is communicated to Pfötchenhof Pfalz.

Whether or not a dog can participate in the seminars and workshops can be found in the respective course and the registration confirmation.

If training on the drag line is necessary, it will be done exclusively on the chest harness. If a chest harness is not possible, a separate agreement is required.

Choke collars, prong collars or similar instruments of torture are not permitted in training. We reserve the right to cancel the training if no other collar is used. A refund is then not possible.



All course, workshop and seminar fees, as well as the Social Walks & Encounter Trainings are due upon confirmation of registration (invoice) and are to be transferred to the following account after invoicing:

The prices include the applicable statutory value added tax. The performance period applies here. If we do not receive payment for a service in due time, we reserve the right to cancel the agreed appointment.

This will be arranged with Pfötchenhof Pfalz if necessary.

Some events take place without a dog, or the number of participating dogs is limited. Please note that bringing your dog here must be agreed with us in advance. Should a prior arrangement not have taken place, we reserve the right to exclude the participant and his dog from the seminar.
