I, the Releasing Party, and the undersigned have enrolled myself and my dog in private consultations or other related activities (online or in-person) offered by Aunt Penny’s Pet Services (“APPS”), The Released Party.
By signing hereunder, I certify that I have been informed and understand that there is always some unavoidable risk of injury involved when working with animals, especially animals with behavioral issues. I acknowledge that dogs can be inherently difficult to control and that not all dogs will be under control at all times resulting in the possibility of injury to myself, my dog, my family members, or third parties. Additionally, I have had the full opportunity to discuss all my concerns about the foregoing risks with APPS and its authorized representatives. I have also made all inquiries and investigations to my satisfaction related to such risks, including, but not limited to, an examination of the training area (if applicable). I hereby accept and assume, without reservation, all risks associated with my participation in the sessions, 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 while training.
As lawful consideration for participating in the sessions, I, for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, legal representatives, successors and assigns hereby waive, release, discharge, and agree not to sue and to indemnify, defend and hold harmless APPS and their members, managers, agents, and employees from any and all injuries, losses, claims, and damages to any person or persons of any nature whatsoever, including claims arising from the Released Party’s own negligence, and all costs associated therewith, including attorney’s fees, court costs, and consultant fees, arising from my participation in the Sessions.
This Waiver of Liability & Informed Consent Release shall be legally binding on the Releasing Party. Should the Releasing Party assert a claim to the contrary to what has been 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 by both the Released Party and the Releasing Party. 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.
I recognize that there are certain inherent risks associated with the above-described activities that include the contraction of communicable diseases, including but not limited to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. I assume full responsibility for personal safety to myself and (if applicable) my family members, and further release and discharge APPS for injury, loss or damage arising out of my or my family's private session, whether caused by the fault of myself, my family, APPS, or other third parties. I agree that if I am sick, have symptoms of COVID-19 as defined by the best understanding of the disease at the time of participation, including but not limited to fever, cough, shortness of breath, and/or rash, I will inform the trainer immediately by email or phone.
I hereby consent to my dog is the subject of the photographs and/or audiovisual recording and authorize APPS and Penny Layne to cause the same to be exhibited for educational purposes as still photographs, transparencies, motion pictures, television, video, or other similar media
