Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a waitlist for the sold out course I want to attend?

There is an email notification list that you can join that will inform you of any openings in the courses and when products are back in stock. You can add your email address to this list by going to the sold out course page you would like to attend and clicking on "Notify me when available." Please note that any spots that may open up will be available on a first come first served basis.

What do I need to bring to the course I am registered to attend?

You can see all of the items you will need for the course under the “Packing List” tab on the course page where you first registered for the course. The packing list will also be in the Welcome Letter email you receive after signing up for your course.

Where do I need to go for the course and at what time?

You can see the course itinerary under the “Description” tab on the course page where you first registered for the course, and in the email you receive after signing up for your course.

Who are the instructors for the course I am attending?

Unfortunately, for privacy and security reasons, we do not release the instructor list prior to the course. We guarantee that every one of our instructors are the best at what they do and they will provide an amazing mentor experience!

Which firearm should I get/bring to the course?

This is entirely up to you. As long as it is the correct type of firearm for that course (pistol, rifle, shotgun, etc.), you will want to bring whichever firearm you would like to become more proficient with. We recommend training the way you fight. The firearm that you are most likely to use is your best option.

When will more courses be scheduled?

We add new courses to the schedule every few weeks! Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and sign up for our Newsletter to get all announcements about our new courses!

I can not attend the course I am registered to attend, what is your refund policy?

You can see our “Event Refund Policy” on our Refund Policy page.

Where can I find the waiver for the course I am registered to attend?

There will be a paper waiver for all students to sign at the course when you arrive. You can also fill out the digital waiver prior to attending.

I do not own a firearm, how can I get a rental from you, and what is the cost?

We offer pistol rental packages at most courses for $225 which includes a 9mm pistol, holster, magazine pouches, and magazines. We offer rifle rental packages for the rifle courses for $225 which includes a rifle with sling, magazine pouches, and magazines. Please note we do not offer ammunition so you will need to provide your ammunition for the course. Rental packages are limited so make sure to book yours early. To secure a rental, email us at info@sheepdogresponse.com to find out if there is a rental package available for the course you are interested in attending. We can then send you an invoice for the rental fee.

What is the age requirement for students attending your courses?

The minimum age for all of our courses is 15 years old, with the exception of our TTRC, which is 12 years of age. Participants under the age of 18 are required to have a legal guardian present at the course.

There were photos taken at a course I attended, where can I see those photos?

Most photos taken at courses are not available, unfortunately. They are mostly taken for promotional purposes. However, the group pictures taken at the end of the course are usually posted on our Instagram and Facebook pages. If it is not on there, you can also look on the Sheepdog Response Alumni Facebook group. You will have to request and receive approval to join this group.
