Waiver, Assumption of Risk, and Agreement to Hold Harmless- Release of Liability

I understand that attendance of any dog training consultation is not without risk to the public, my dog(s), and me. I also understand that, despite all reasonable precautions, my dog(s), or another dog may difficult to control and may be the cause of injury to myself, other people, or other dogs. By my signature below I acknowledge that I fully understand the dangers and risks involved in participating in the training that I have chosen to attend, and that I accept those risks.

As part of my considerations for participating in training with Dr. Tammy Davis of Davis Dog Training, LLC, I agree to hold the instructor and/or assistant harmless and indemnify them from any claims of loss, damage, or injury that may occur to myself, my dog(s), or anyone else participating in or near the session at my request, while on the property of the business, within my home property, or in the general public.

While Dr. Tammy Davis of Davis Dog Training, LLC shall make all reasonable efforts to safely contain the dog during the session, it is understood and agreed that in the event that the dog escapes from its owner, the instructor shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage resulting there from, including but not limited to, any loss or injury to the dog.

In addition, I personally accept complete responsibility and liability for any such claim involving myself, my dog(s) and anyone attending the session at my request. I also personally assume responsibility for any negligence or damage caused by myself, my dog, or anyone attending the session at my request. I am aware that there are inherent risks and hazards involved in activities with and around dogs, and I am voluntarily participating in these activities with knowledge of potential dangers. I am aware that any dog, regardless of training, handling, or environmental circumstance, is capable of biting and I expressly acknowledge the risks therein.

I acknowledge that my dog(s) behavior now and in the future is solely my responsibility. Should any behavior on my dog(s) part now or in the future result in damage to myself, my property, family, children or the property, owners, children, or person of a third party, I agree to assume full liability for any and all such damage, and to absolve Dr. Tammy Davis of Davis Dog Training, LLC from any and all obligations to pay such damage.

I also indicate my irrevocable consent to the use and/or publication by Davis Dog Training, LLC of any video(s) or photograph(s) and all photographic negatives, prints, stills electronic media or reproductions provided by me or my family members or taken by Davis Dog Training, LLC of my dogs. I understand that the photographs and/or video(s) may be used in public relations and marketing materials including, but not limited to, brochures, internet website, local or regional magazine advertisements and/or articles.

Refund Policy

I understand that payment for the services of Dr. Tammy Davis of Davis Dog Training is due at the time of service and is non-refundable. Payments for sessions scheduled in the future are also non-refundable unless extraordinary circumstances arise that prevent training to continue, and the responsibility of the decision for the returning of funds is solely on Dr. Tammy Davis of Davis Dog Training. This agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding on my heirs, successors, and personal representatives.

Group Class Requirements

Group classes are 45 minutes.  Dogs must be current on all vaccinations appropriate for the dog’s age.  Dogs must be on some form of flea prevention.  The dog should wear a flat, buckle collar, head halti, front hook harness as appropriate.  Dogs should be on a s 6 ft. standard flat lead for class.  Bring treats to class.

Missed Classes

There are no make up lessons provided for classes missed. If there is room in another group class, Tammy Davis may allow the participant to be in the class. If your dog misses 2 consecutive classes, it will cause you and your dog to be behind in the curriculum. For Tammy to make time during class for a necessary catch up is unfair to those who attend every week and can put the curriculum itself behind for the group. Scheduling a private lesson with Tammy at the current private lesson rate before re-attending your class would give you and your dog the opportunity to catch up and is the only option for continuing class where 2 consecutive classes were missed.

Private Lessons

A 48-hour prior notice is required for a cancellation in order to reschedule without forfeiting payment made. Otherwise, the private session paid for will be non-refundable. A rescheduled session will require new payment.

Payments

Payment is required in advance for all services.  Verbal bookings will be held for 24 hours.  If payment is not received within 24 hours, that booking may be forfeited.  A travel fee of $30 will be added for lessons at any location more than 15 miles away from Davis Dog Training, LLC’s location.  All payments are final and non-refundable.  Cancellations for any reason are non-refundable.

Termination

Tammy at Davis Dog Training, LLC reserves the right to terminate the training contract at any time before or during its term if she determines that a danger exists to the health and safety of the public, Trainer, owner or dog.  Should the Trainer or Owner terminate the training agreement at any time prior to completion, all fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Agreements for on-going training are automatically terminated if Tammy does not hear from the client for a period of 90 days.  After 90 days, on-going agreement will cease.  No refund will be issued for any lessons or classes remaining on agreement.
