General Training Services:
The Pawsitive Packleader (“Pawsitive”) believes that successful companion pet training programs depend on a combination of learned skills of the pet and owner. In addition to the specific services included in Pawsitive’s Private Training program, each of Pawsitive’s training services include:
- Working with Client and the Dog(s) to impart contemporary knowledge of animal behavior that best fits Dog(s) and Client’s needs.
- Addressing any aggression, reactivity, or guarding related behaviors, and any other issues identified by the Client.
- Providing Client with advice and instructions regarding ongoing training, physical activity, and exercise for the Dog(s).
- Lifetime phone and email support for Client related to the above.
Client acknowledges that behavior is not static; a dog will not continue to perform event trained behaviors without ongoing practice. Especially in cases involving any type of aggression, although behavior may be modified, a dog is never considered “cured.” Client accepts that without ongoing effort any training may lose its effectiveness and acknowledges that the Dog(s)’ behavior is ultimately the client’s responsibility.
Client Acceptance of Risks:
Client acknowledges that there are inherent risks in obedience training/behavior modification, exercising, and diet modification, and that injury to the Dog(s), persons and/or property may occur despite Pawsitive’s best efforts to prevent such harms. Client further acknowledges that the Dog(s) may be exposed to a variety of environmental conditions that include, but are not limited to, exposure to areas with crowds and traffic, as well as acknowledges the risks associated with unpredictable environments. Client assumes full financial/moral responsibility for the actions of his/her Dog(s).
Permission to Use Images:
Pawsitive loves dogs and likes to take photos and video of your Dog(s) and use them on its website, on Facebook, other social media sites and for marketing. Client hereby gives Pawsitive permission to take and use photos and video of your Dog(s) and grants a publicity release to use your Dog(s)’ name and image in connection with the above purposes. Pawsitive will not sell any photos or video of your Dog(s) and keeps all personal information regarding your Dog(s), training specifics, or otherwise confidential.
Waiver and Release of Liability:
Pawsitive is not liable, and hereby expressly disclaims any liability for any injury, illness, or harm to the Dog(s) howsoever caused, including from other dogs in the facility, except solely from the result of gross negligence by Pawsitive (or its agents). Client releases, waives and discharges all claims, demands, liabilities and causes of action against Pawsitive (and its agents) for any such injury, illness or harm to the Dog(s), except solely from the result of gross negligence of Pawsitive (or its agents).
Limitation of Liability:
IN NO EVENT WILL PAWSITIVE (OR ITS AGENTS) BE LIABLE IN CONTRACT OR TORT FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RELATED TO THE DOG(S) TRAINING OR THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT.
Client expressly agrees to indemnify Pawsitive (and its agents) for any losses resulting from claims, or lawsuits arising out a breach of this agreement by Client and any damages to persons or property of third parties caused by the Dog(s).
Client represents that they have fully disclosed if the Dog(s) of any known medical/special needs, or aggression or behavior issues.
