LIABILITY WAIVER

THIS DOCUMENT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING IT.

I recognize that in attending training sessions by Hearts and Hounds Dog Training there may be risk to myself, any family member or guest in attendance, my dog(s), and my personal property.  With full knowledge, I release Hearts and Hounds Dog Training, its agents, members, trainers, employees, facility owners and all associated persons (“agents”) from any and all responsibility for accidents, loss, injuries or infections, and damage or theft to any person, animal or property. 

I am the owner of the dog(s) being trained.  All behavioural advice and training suggestions offered by Hearts and Hounds Dog Training, Alison Solski, and any agent thereof is accepted at my own risk.  Use of this information is voluntary and Hearts and Hounds Dog Training, Alison Solski, and any agent thereof is not responsible for injury to another human or animal.  I am at all times responsible for the actions of my dog.  Hearts and Hounds Dog Training, Alison Solski, and any agent thereof is not responsible for any injuries or expenses resulting from socialization or training. I understand that some dogs, including my own or to which I or my dog might be exposed: may be difficult to control; may act aggressively towards other dogs, animals or people; may be a cause of injury even when handled with care; and may cause property damage.  I also understand the possible risk to myself, my family, or my dog from other participants that may be in attendance.  I understand that should my dog become aggressive, unruly, or unable to participate in class, whether it is with other dogs or privately, I will be asked to remove my dog from class and will not receive a refund for classes missed.

Upon request, I agree to provide the required Veterinary Certificate stating that my dog is healthy and has had proper veterinary examinations and has received the preventative health care requirements to attend Puppy Start Right, Puppy Kindergarten, or any other training classes or services run by Hearts and Hounds Dog Training.  It is my responsibility to keep my dog current on vaccinations or titers. I recognize that dogs may still be susceptible to various diseases or infections despite being vaccinated and may infect me or my dog.

If my dog causes property damage, or bites or injures any other dog, animal or person during or after the term of this Agreement, then I agree to defend and indemnify Hearts and Hounds Dog Training, Alison Solski, and any agent thereof from any resulting claims, demands, lawsuits, losses, costs or expenses, including attorney fees.  If my dog is injured in a fight or in any other manner during or after the term of this Agreement, I assume the risk and agree that Hearts and Hounds Dog Training, Alison Solski, and any agent thereof should not be held responsible for any resulting injuries, losses, damages, costs or expenses whatsoever.

Hearts and Hounds Dog Training may photograph or video my pet and use such pictures for publicity, commercial, or promotional purposes without any liability or obligation to me.

I acknowledge that this Agreement is binding upon me and the members of my family and household.

I hereby acknowledge that Hearts and Hounds Dog Training may terminate services if (a) in the sole judgment of Hearts and Hounds Dog Training, my dog is dangerous or vicious to any person or animal, or interferes with the training of other dogs, or (b) I breach any term or condition of this Agreement or (c) either party cancels the agreement.  Upon termination in accordance with the foregoing, the duties of Hearts and Hounds Dog Training and Alison Solski shall terminate but all other provisions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
