You are the person responsible for the dog while using this facility. You are also responsible for every individual (as well as their dogs) who attends under your booking reservation.
Warning of Risk
Dog activities are intended to provide a fun and rewarding experience for you and your dog. Despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury, including death to the dog, its owner/handler or other persons or animals. Dogs are pack animals and when “off lead,” even the best trained dogs will act instinctively. Understandably, not all hazards and dangers associated with dog activities can be foreseen. Certain inherent risks include the propensity of any dog to behave in dangerous ways that may result in injury to you, another person(s), or dog(s). Other risks include, but are not limited to, the inexperience, negligence or irresponsibility of a dog owner/handler; the inability to predict a dogs reaction to movement, sounds, objects, persons, or other animals; and actions by the dog due to fright, anger, stress, insect bites or natural reactions such as jumping, pulling, resisting and biting. Other risks include the hazards associated with environmental and traffic conditions, acts of God, inclement weather, slips and falls, premises defects, equipment failure, failure in instruction/supervision, and all other circumstances inherent to dog and/or outdoor activities. It must be recognized that it is impossible for Sequoyah K9 Academy to guarantee absolute safety. Should you attempt to break up a dog fight or restrain a dog, including but not limited to your dog, you may be severely mauled and/or attacked by your dog or other dogs or another dogs owner/handler.
