Aggressive Dog Policy

This policy shall apply to all members, handlers and dogs present at and/or participating in any DTCCU functions, including but not limited to training classes, licensed trials, fun trials, demonstrations and informal training sessions.

Definition of Aggressive Behavior:
An aggressive dog is one who, on DTCCU premises or at DTCCU activities, makes – or repeatedly attempts to make – negative physical contact with any person or any animal. “Negative physical contact” is that which is potentially harmful or dangerous to persons or pets. Actual physical contact is not necessary to constitute aggressive behavior.

Any person who believes s/he experienced or witnessed an act of dog aggression may fill out a written report, which must be signed, dated and presented to the class instructor, Director of Training or Club President.
