Appeals Procedure for students enrolled on CPD courses
Where an assessment takes place, all learners are assessed against the relevant learning outcomes for the course and regulating organisation criteria, where applicable. Assessment decisions are made either by external speakers, or internal Assessors.
Prior to the assessment date, it is the responsibility of the learner to notify us of any medical problem which may affect the learner’s performance adversely in the assessment process. If learners wish to appeal against an assessor’s decision or apply for reasonable adjustment or special consideration, the learner should discuss on the day they receive the assessment decision their intention to appeal that decision directly with the Assessor. If the learner is dissatisfied with the outcome of this discussion, the learner should contact Dog & Bone through the contact form within five days of the date of the assessment and include with it any supporting evidence. Appeals received after this time will not be heard. Once received by us, Dog & Bone will investigate the appeal and respond in writing to the learner with a decision within 20 working days of receipt of the form. Where an assessment is completed by an external speaker, the appeals process would be between the learner and the speaker Dog & Bone will only act in an advisory capacity.


Course Content Review Policy 
Dog & Bone takes the standard of its courses very seriously. Speakers are asses via personal recommendations, word of mouth, social media reviews and online research. We focus on ensuring the content is appropriate and the course content is up to date and accurate.  However the specific information provided during the event is given by our speaker and Dog & Bone do not censor the information given by the speaker after we have carefully selected them. 

Malpractice Policy 
Dog & Bone treats all cases of suspected malpractice / maladministration very seriously and will investigate all suspected and reported incidents of possible malpractice. ‘Malpractice’ is defined as any act, or failure to act, that threatens or compromises the integrity of the assessment processor and the validity of Dog & Bone training events and their certification. This includes maladministration, falsification of documents, acts of plagiarism or other academic misconduct, actions that compromise the reputation or authority of its employees or associates. Any case of suspected malpractice must be reported within two working days from its discovery by using the Contact Form, including all evidence and any relevant statements from other individuals. Dog & Bone will investigate each case to ascertain whether malpractice has occurred, to establish the full facts and circumstances and promptly take all reasonable steps to prevent or mitigate any adverse effect, as far as possible, and to correct it. The individual(s) concerned will be informed of the investigation. If a case of malpractice is upheld, Dog & Bone may impose sanctions or other penalties on the individual(s) concerned. These may include written warnings, reporting to relevant authorities or organisations, or removal from the course. Records of all malpractice cases and their outcomes are maintained by Dog & Bone for a period of at least five years and are subject to regular monitoring and review. 


Equal Opportunities Learner’s Charter 
“Everyone has a part to play in ensuring we achieve equality of opportunity. We believe that a positive attitude towards equality and diversity is right for our people, our clients and our business suppliers. This means that we must encourage all our people to welcome diversity and respect each person’s individuality”. Dog & Bone is committed to ensuring that the admissions process will be open and transparent, and that no individual or group receives less favourable treatment by virtue of age, disability, economic status, faith, gender, marital status, sexuality, race, colour, and nationality, ethnic or national origin. 
At any Dog & Bone event, you can expect 
•    to receive a highly quality learning experience 
•    to be given equal opportunities and treated fairly 
•    to be treated with courtesy 
•    to have access to advice, guidance and support to ensure your choices are informed ones and that your learning needs are met 
•    to learn in a healthy and safe environment 
•    to be provided with timely and appropriate information on your progress (where the course involves an assessment)
•    to have staff listen to any issues, suggestions or concerns you may have, and to respond in a relevant manner 
In turn as a customer of Dog & Bone we would like you to: 
•    be fully committed to your course 
•    treat our staff with courtesy 
•    provide us with appropriate information to help us meet your learning and assessment needs 
•    ensure that your behaviour contributes to a healthy and safe environment 
•    abide by any rules specifically relating to online assessment 
•    communicate issues, suggestions or concerns 
If for any reason you wish to make a formal complaint, then please access our formal complaints procedure on the website 


Reasonable Adjustments Policy 
Dog & Bone has a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to make any reasonable adjustments that can be made for our learners to ensure they are not discriminated against. We aim to facilitate open and fair access to our training for learners without compromising the quality of training or assessment. Dog & Bone achieve this through reasonable adjustments (agreed at point of booking/registration at least 28 days before an event, detailing any adjustments that may be needed). Adjustments must not affect the quality and reliability of the learning outcomes nor must they give the learner an advantage over other learners undertaking the same or similar training. A special consideration request can be made during or after a training event to reflect temporary illness, injury or indisposition that occurred at the time of the event. Not all requests for reasonable adjustments may be granted if they are not deemed reasonable, permissible or practical. 


If you have a complaint about our products or services, please let us know, we are very keen to ensure we provide quality products, a speedy delivery service and the smooth running of our events and we are more than happy to look into any problems you have and come to a conclusion that suits both parties. If you would like to open a formal complaint, please email the information to complaints @ dog - and - (please remove the spaces). Your complaint will be considered by the directors of the company and the aim will be to send a report to you within 10 working days. If you are not satisfied with our response the next step is to request a full meeting of the Dog and Bone Management Committee to be convened to discuss the issue. The Dog and Bone Management Committee comprises all Company Directors, all Shareholders and all Employees of the company. We aim to arrange this meeting within 20 working days of the request. The committee will discuss the issue and make a decision regarding appropriate action that may be required to resolve the situation. You will be contacted in writing with their decision. The decision of the executive committee is final.

Sale of Goods and Services

These terms and conditions form the basis on which you can visit us and our website.  Please read them carefully as they contain important information.  When you order goods from Dog & Bone Ltd you are deemed to have understood and accepted them.


1.         The contract between us

We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Payment of the price for the goods represents an offer on your part to purchase the goods, which will be accepted by us only when the goods are dispatched. Only at this point is a legally binding contract created between us. If you are ordering from outside the UK, our payment partner will convert your order into your relevant currency.


2.         Acknowledgement of your order

To enable us to process your order, you will need to provide us with your e-mail address. We will notify you by e-mail as soon as possible to confirm receipt of your order and to confirm details. For the avoidance of doubt, this correspondence does not constitute a contract between us.


3.         Accuracy of content

We have taken care in the preparation of the content of this website, to ensure that prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all goods have been described accurately. However, orders will only be processed if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website. Any weights, dimensions and capacities given about the goods are approximate only.


4.         Availability

All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. If the goods you have ordered are not available from stock, we will contact you by e-mail or phone (if you have given us details). You will have the option either to wait until the item is available from stock or to cancel your order.


5.         Ordering errors

You are able to correct errors on your order up to the point on which you click on “submit” during the ordering process.


6.         Price

The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out on our website. There is no VAT on Dog & Bone products or seminar places purchased after March 2019.

Where it is not possible to accept your order to buy goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, and offer to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state in the email the period for which the offer or the price remains valid.

Prices of goods displayed in and ordered through the website may differ from prices at live events and seminars.


7.         Payment terms

We will take payment upon receipt of your order from your credit or debit card or via PayPal. We accept all major credit and debit cards with the exception of American Express. The card must be registered to the billing address but the billing address does not need to match the shipping address. However, we accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details or the correct shipping address. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from you, then we can refuse to process your order and/or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.

We are unable to accept cards that are due to expire within the next 5 days. All payments made in our online shop are handled by a secure third-party payment handling company and no credit card numbers are held in clear text on any website.


8.       Delivery charges

We do not charge for delivery except for orders overseas and special delivery.


9.       Delivery 

9.1    We aim to despatch standard orders within 24 hours. However, this may take longer during busy periods.

9.2    We do not charge for delivery of standard items within the UK. Items posted (within the mainland UK, excludes Northern Ireland) are sent by Royal Mail Second Class or similar. If you'd like your order delivered urgently, we offer a Royal Mail Special Delivery service (excepting Saturday Special Delivery) but your order would need to be in by 3pm to catch this.  The price for this is automatically calculated on the website if you choose this option. Please note that this option is withdrawn occasionally for operational reasons.   

9.3      Charges for overseas orders are calculated at the checkout and will be quoted before confirmation of your order.

9.4      KONG orders (where stock is available are normally dispatched within a week of payment).

9.5     We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered (unless this is caused by our negligence). We will aim to deliver your goods within 30 days from the day after the day we received your order. If delivery is delayed beyond this time, we will contact you and either agree a mutually acceptable alternative date or offer you a full refund. 

9.6    You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.


10.       Risk and ownership

Risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you. You will only own the goods once they have been successfully delivered.


11.       Cancellation rights 

11.1    Under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 SI 2013/3134 you have the legal right to cancel your order up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive your goods.

11.4    If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then you must send the goods back to our contact address at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery, you should not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.

11.5    Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, and we have either received the goods back or, if earlier, received evidence that you have sent the goods back, we will refund any sum debited by us by whichever means you used to pay within 14 calendar days minus the cost of posting the item to you unless you paid for delivery.

11.6    We may make a deduction from your refund for any loss in the value of the goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (for example using or wearing the goods prior to cancellation)


12.       Cancellation by us 

12.1    We reserve the right not to process your order if:

12.1.1   We have insufficient stock to deliver the goods you have ordered;

12.1.2   One or more of the goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers.

12.2    If we do not process your order for the above reasons, we will notify you by e-mail and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us by whichever means you used to pay as soon as possible, but  in any event within 14 days.

13.3.1  If you would like to exchange an item, for example a harness for a different size, it needs to be returned in a new and unused condition (including still having the tags attached) and packaged with care.

13.3.2  It would need to be returned at your expense and we would also require you to cover the cost of sending the replacement.

14.       Liability

14.1    Unless agreed otherwise, if you do not receive goods ordered by you within 30 days of the date on which you ordered them and decide to cancel the order rather than re-arrange delivery (in accordance with clause 11), you would need to inform us and we will provide you with a full refund.

14.2    We are only responsible for losses that are a natural, foreseeable consequence of our breach of these terms and conditions.  We do not accept liability if we are prevented or delayed from complying with our obligations set out in these terms and conditions by anything you (or anyone acting with your express or implied authority) does or fails to do or is due to events which are beyond our reasonable control.

14.3    Furthermore, we do not accept liability for any losses related to any business of yours including but not limited to: lost data, lost profits, lost revenues or business interruption.

14.5    Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to limit any rights you might have as a consumer under applicable local law or other statutory rights that may not be excluded nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for any death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.   You have certain rights as a consumer including legal rights (e.g. under the Act) relating to faulty and/or misdescribed goods.


15.      Learn Events and Seminars 

15.1    We have no control over the content of seminars and workshops and cannot be held liable for the opinions expressed or the actual content.  Publicity and marketing text to promote the learn events is provided by the speaker and any complaints should be made to them directly.

15.4    If you need a refund we have established a sliding scale of refunds in relation to how much notice you are able to give. If you e-mail or phone us within the following time frames you can request a full or partial refund as follows:

      • 100% of fees paid – 3 or more months from the date of event. (see note below *)
