Changing Lives Through Dogs Codes of Conduct
We will respect each other and show this in the way that we act and speak.
We will respect all animals that we work with.
We will work hard and make progress through the CLTD Certificates.
We will try to do our best and encourage others to do the same.
We will do our best to attend every session and arrive on time.
We will all move safely, quietly, and sensibly around the farm, including in the classroom and any time spent off site.
We will all acknowledge our mistakes and accept the opportunities to make amends.
We will all be well prepared for sessions, including what we wear and how we act.
We will wear appropriate clothing. Our CLTD course dress code is:-
Bare feet and open toe footwear are not appropriate at the farm, ideally wellies or walking boots should be worn, especially in winter. Trainers are acceptable during warmer weather.
Warm, waterproof clothing may be required during the winter months, including hats and gloves for outdoor sessions.
Clothing that reveals undergarments is not acceptable. This includes tops that show the belly.
It is advisable to wear trousers such as jeans, jogging bottoms or leggings. Long, looser fitting shorts are acceptable during warmer weather.
Due to the nature of the course, working with animals in a farm environment, it is advisable to wear clothing that is ‘not your best, brand new clothing.’
Alcohol and drugs are strictly prohibited in all areas of the farm and when on session off site. Should any participant be found in possession of such substances at any time whilst at their placement, a zero-tolerance policy will be applied with immediate termination of the placement.
