Training and behaviour waiver

I, as the dog owner, will be handling my dog throughout the training or behaviour sessions and therefore am fully responsible for the actions of my dog while undertaking training or behaviour sessions or classes with Forests & Fetch, this includes but is not limited to, harm caused to any person or dog (including my own) and damage of equipment or property.

I confirm that I have provided all necessary information to Forests & Fetch and deem that my dog is suitable to undertake training or behaviour sessions. I also confirm that I have not witnessed my dog display aggressive tendencies towards people or other animals in the past, or if so, have informed Forests & Fetch.

I agree to immediately advise Forests & Fetch of any problems with my dog that could affect his/her behaviour, health, or suitability for training.

In the event of an emergency, I authorise Anna Muir at Forests & Fetch to perform emergency first aid on my dog prior to taking them to the nearest veterinary surgeon. I agree to pay for all veterinary care required in the opinion of the veterinary surgeon.

I can confirm that my dog is up to date with their vaccinations. I will not attend training or behaviour sessions if my dog has kennel cough and will inform Forests & Fetch immediately.

A full refund / reschedule of the session will only be provided if notification of cancellation of service is provided at least 72 hours in advance. For classes, refunds or reschedule will not be possible once the class block has commenced.

I hereby waive and release Forests & Fetch from any and all claims, actions, suits, demands, assessments or judgments asserted and any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, solicitors’ fees and accounting fees to the extent permitted by law) alleged or incurred arising out of or relating to any operations.

I understand that the advice and support given is compliant with the ethics and code of practice of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and agree to continue the training in line with the modern, non-aversive dog training methods shown/explained by Forests & Fetch.

I confirm that I have completely read, understand and acknowledged this Forests & Fetch waiver, have completed the class, client booking or behaviour assessment questionnaire form prior to training and understand and agree to all of the terms outlined.

This waiver shall be effective from the date of submission of the booking form.
