LIABILITY RELEASE AND TRAINING AGREEMENT

  1. I agree that I have hired Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation, as training professionals, to determine which tools are necessary to help me train my dog. I understand that I will obtain the best training results by following the instructions of the Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation trainer(s). I further understand that I am solely responsible for the training of my dog.
  2. I certify that my dog is in good health, is free from fleas, ticks, heartworms, and all other parasites, and has received all required vaccinations, including: canine distemper, parvo virus, hepatitis, parainfluenza, Bordetella, and rabies. I agree that I am under a continuing obligation to report to Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation any signs of illness or infection in my dog.
  3. In the event that my dog requires emergency veterinary treatment while attending a training program, I agree that Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation, in its sole discretion, will transport my dog to an appropriate veterinary facility for treatment and will immediately attempt to contact me. I assume all financial responsibility for veterinary treatment.
  4. Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation strives to keep a clean and sanitary environment. I understand that even in cleanest environments, infections, diseases, and parasites may be transmitted between animals.
  5. I understand and agree that if attending board and train and or boarding, my dog may be placed in a kennel for periods of time during the day and/or night to allow for rest and downtime.
  6. I understand that dogs are animals and even in the most controlled and well-supervised environments, they may engage in inappropriate animal behavior. This includes, but is not limited to, rough playing, nipping, aggression, and dog bites. I further understand that although Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation staff closely monitors dog socialization and play to prevent injury, it is possible that my dog may receive minor nicks and scratches from other dogs. I agree that Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation may use “corrections” to interrupt and/or stop my dog’s inappropriate behavior. Such corrections include, but are not limited to, bonking, and compressed air canisters.
  7. I understand that my account must be paid in full prior to or at the first training session, and that there will be no refunds. Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation reserves the right to change rates over time.
  8. I understand that in order to receive a refund for my deposit I must cancel two-weeks (fourteen days) prior to the start of my program. I understand that cancelations or rescheduling beyond the two-week period will result in my deposit to become non-refundable and non-transferable. Refunds will be credited back in the original form of payment. To cancel or reschedule an appointment please contact our office directly to speak with a representative.
  9. I understand that if I must cancel or reschedule an appointment, I must provide 24 hours advance notice. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of that lesson.
  10. I understand that I am responsible for reading any literature provided by Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation or by the manufacturers of any products used in my dog’s training.
  11. I agree that training collars will not be left on my dog overnight or while my dog is unattended.
  12. I understand that although Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation has successfully trained many aggressive dogs, there are no guarantees that aggression will completely recede with training. I agree that if my dog has displayed or continues to display aggression toward other dogs and/or people, it is my responsibility to muzzle my dog and to avoid potential problem situations at all times, not solely during training sessions.
  13. I agree that in the event my dog engages in an act of aggression toward another dog or person while participating in dog training, Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation staff may, in their sole discretion, use reasonable physical force to interrupt and stop the aggression. I further agree that I am solely responsible, financially or otherwise, for any harm or damage to other dogs, persons, and/or property arising out of my dog’s behavior.
  14. I agree to allow Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation to photograph and/or videotape my dog for use in print, publication, and promotion of Sofu’s Dog Care Training and Rehabilitation.
