Liability release:


I understand that once the dog training classes for which I have registered have begun, there will be no refund of any kind should I be unable to complete the classes. Class fees are due in full with completed registration form and signed waiver before the first class of each session. Universal Canine has the right to refuse me and/ or my dog at any time for any reason. 


All dogs enrolling must be current on distemper, rabies and bordetella (kennel cough) vaccinations and on a parasite preventive program. I certify that my dog(s) who will be attending training sessions are/ is current on vaccinations. I will report any health conditions which might interfere with my dogs ability to participate.


I understand that attendance of a dog training class/sessions are not without risk to myself, members of my family or guest who may attend, or my dog(s). Risks include injuries from equipment, surroundings, other dogs attending and any other injuries to me, another person or my dog(s). I acknowledge the fact that some of the dogs participating in this class may be difficult to control or cause injury even while under the greatest amount of care.


I understand that despite being enrolled in a dog training class, results of a successfully trained dog depend on the owners interest, commitment and cooperation. I acknowledge and agree that there is no guarantee that my dog will achieve the desired level of training despite the best efforts of the instructor. 


I hereby waive and release Universal Canine, its employees, owner and agents from any and all liability of any nature, for injury or damage which I or my dog suffer including specifically, but not without limitation, any injury or damage resulting from any piece of training equipment or any dog. I expressly assume the risk of any such damage or injury while attending any training sessions or other functions of the class, or while on training grounds or the surrounding area of the Universal Canine facility. 


Photo release:


I give my permission of Universal Canine, and it’s instructors and employees to take and use any photos taken at class of me and/or for any desired reason.
