I, client, understand that Sierra, trainer, agrees to provide private lessons for client and dog on a lesson-by-lesson basis, the goal being to teach client how to train and work with dog. These lessons will take place at client's home unless otherwise specified. Trainer will make every reasonable effort to help client achieve training and behavior modification goals. However, it is up to the client to follow through on all assignments and attend all sessions. The dog’s behavior is highly dependent on the owner’s understanding of behavior and application of techniques. We are not able to make a guarantee of the dog’s performance and behavior as a result of our services. We do provide a “Wagging Tail Guarantee” that client will have a clear understanding of the exact techniques needed to train their dog for the desired behavior and will be satisfied with the educational training they have received. Client understands that he/she and members of the household must follow trainer’s instructions without modification, work with dog daily as recommended, and constantly reinforce training being given to dog in order to achieve desired goals. Client understands that any alteration of instructions/methods or inconsistency will negatively impact results.
Trainer will only teach client positive reinforcement techniques to train dog. Using punitive or force based techniques may get quicker results but has long term, negative effects on the dog’s mental health. By using these techniques and not using punitive methods progress may be slower. The dog will learn through teaching and it takes time and repetition to learn new habits. By checking this box, client is confirming their understanding of this.
Cancellation Policy *
Client understands If client fails to give at least 24 hours cancellation notice, or is not present at time of scheduled appointment, session fees are still due and that session will be forfeited.
Client acknowledges that by trainer's sole election, trainer's duties hereunder shall terminate if (a) in trainer's sole judgment dog is dangerous or vicious to trainer or any other person or animal, or interferes with the training of other dogs, or (b) client breaches any term or condition of this Agreement. Upon termination in accordance with the foregoing, trainer's duties shall terminate but all other provisions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
If dog causes property damage, or bites or injures any dog, animal or person (including but not limited to trainer and trainer’s agents), during or after the term of this Agreement, then client agrees to pay all resulting losses and damages suffered or incurred, and to defend and indemnify trainer and trainer’s agents from any resulting claims, demands, lawsuits, losses, costs or expenses, including attorney fees. If dog is injured in a fight or in any other manner during or after the term of the agreement, client assumes the risk and agrees, by checking the box, that trainer should not be held responsible for any resulting injuries, losses, damages, costs or expenses.
Client accepts this agreement is binding upon client, spouse of client, and children of client and anyone residing in the home. This agreement supersedes all prior discussions, representations, warranties and agreements of the parties, and expresses the entire agreement between client and trainer regarding the matters described above. The parties confirm that, except for that which is specifically written in this agreement, no promises, representations or oral understandings have been made with regard to dog or anything else. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, client acknowledges that trainer has not represented, promised, guaranteed or warranted that dog will never bite, that dog will not be dangerous or vicious in the future, that dog will not exhibit other behavioral problems, or that the results of the training will last for any particular amount of time. This agreement may be amended only by a written instrument signed by both client and trainer.
