LIABILITY RELEASE, TRAINING AGREEMENT, and PET CARE AGREEMENT
I agree that I have hired Precision K9 Training, 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 Precision K9 Trainer(s). I further understand that I am solely responsible for the training of my dog.
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, parvovirus, hepatitis, parainfluenza, bordetella, and rabies. I agree that I am under a continuing obligation to report to Precision K9 Training any signs of illness or infection in my dog.
In the event that my dog requires emergency veterinary treatment while attending a training program or boarding, I agree that Precision K9 Training, 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.
Precision K9 Training strives to keep a clean and sanitary environment. I understand that even in cleanest environments, infections, diseases, and parasites may be transmitted between animals.
I understand and agree that if attending a training program 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.
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 Precision K9 Training staff closely monitors dog socialization and playing to prevent injury, it is possible that my dog will receive minor nicks and scratches from other dogs. I agree that Precision K9 Training may use “corrections” to interrupt and/or stop my dog’s inappropriate behavior. Such corrections include, but are not limited to, the use of spray bottles of water and compressed air canisters.
I understand that I am responsible for reading any literature provided by Precision K9 Training or by the manufacturer of any products used in my dog’s training.
I agree that training collars will not be left on my dog overnight or while my dog is unattended.
I understand that although Precision K9 Training has successfully trained 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.
I agree that in the event my dog engages in the act of aggression toward another dog or person while participating in dog training, Precision K9 Training 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.
I agree to allow Precision K9 Training to photograph and/or videotape my dog(s) for use in print, publication, and promotion of Precision K9 Training.

The risks include, but are not limited to, the risk of property damage, personal injuries from dog bites, scratches, or other injuries, death, infectious disease, and parasites. I agree that my dog’s attendance and participation in Precision K9 Training dog training or boarding is voluntary and was undertaken with my knowledge of the known risks and other risks that may result from my dog’s participation in dog training.
Assumption of Risk:
