Dog Training


Waiver of Liability & Informed Consent

I hereby acknowledge that I and my dog are voluntarily participating in Dog Training services with PetSafe Village Corporation. PetSafe Village will exercise all necessary and proper care and precautions to keep all participants and dogs safe during training sessions in order to prevent injury to any person, property, other dog or person. However, because dogs are animals and may be unpredictable, PetSafe Village Corporation cannot protect against every potential injury, risk or accident. This Release and Waiver are intended to shift the risk of participating in dog training to the Participant/Owner/Guardian of the dog participating in training services. I acknowledge that I have had full opportunity to discuss any and all concerns I have regarding foregoing risks with PetSafe Village and its authorized representatives.

I agree to hold harmless PetSafe Village Corporation from any and all claims of injury, loss, cost, expenses, or damage caused by the actions of me and/or my dog during the course of training, or under the care, custody or control of PetSafe Village. I hereby accept and assume, without reservation, all risks associated with my participation in the training program, including, but not limited to: the risks of any and all injuries to myself, my dog and any of my family members or third parties who may attend; the risks that my dog may cause injury to other persons and/or dogs involved; and the risks that saliva, water, food, and/or other debris may be present in the training area. I have read and understand all PetSafe Village Policies and agree to abide by them.

I understand that it is my responsibility to keep my dog up to date with regular preventative treatments and vaccinations as required by PetSafe Village and I agree that my dog is current with the required treatments and vaccinations when participating in any activity with PetSafe Village. I am aware that these preventative treatments and vaccinations may not be 100% effective and therefore cannot hold PetSafe Village Corporation liable if my dog is affected.

ONLY FOR PUPPY TRAINING CLASSES: PetSafe Village will accept Puppies under the age of 16 weeks without all completed vaccinations administered; however, this is at the owner’s risk. I therefore accept full responsibility of any condition my puppy may contact at PetSafe Village without these vaccines. I further agree to not hold PetSafe Village Corporation, their agents or staff liable if my puppy is affected in any way for any illness related to participation in any Puppy Training Classes or visit to any PetSafe Village facilities.

As lawful consideration for participating in the training program, I, for myself, my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators, legal representatives, successors and assigns (the “Releasing Party”), hereby waive, release, discharge and covenants not to sue and to indemnify, defend and hold harmless PetSafe Village Corporation, and their managers, agents, and employees (the “Released Party”) from any and all injuries, losses, claims and damages to any person or persons of any nature its directors, officers, employees, agents, sponsors, organizers, volunteers or other representatives, their successors and/or assigns, (hereinafter collectively the “Releasees”) from any and all liability for any loss, harm, damage, claim, injury or accident to the Releasing Party or property of the Releasing Party, whether caused by any ordinary negligent act or omission of the Releasees while the Releasing Party or the Releasing Party’s dog is engaged in or participating in dog training using any PetSafe Village Trainer or Business Facilities in connection therewith.

This Waiver of Liability & Informed Consent Release shall be legally binding on the Releasing Party. Further, should the Releasing Party assert a claim to the contrary to what I have agreed to in this Waiver of Liability and Informed Consent Release, the claiming party shall be liable for all expenses (including attorney’s fees, court costs and consultant fees) incurred by both the Releasing Party and the Released Party. No waiver or modification of any provision herein shall be valid unless expressly agreed to in writing and signed by both the Released Party and the Releasing Party.

I hereby consent to myself and/or my dog being the subject of the photographs and/or audiovisual recording and authorize PetSafe Village Corporation and its Affiliates shall be permitted to make unlimited use of such images and/or likeness, on its website, in brochures, in other advertising, and/or marketing materials, or for any other purpose.

Every provision herein is intended to be severable. If any one or more of the provisions herein is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that shall not affect the other terms and provisions hereof, which shall remain binding and enforceable. This foregoing release and waiver, and assumption of risk is intended to be as expansive, broad and inclusive as permitted by Tennessee law.
