Terms and Conditions of day care

  1. I understand that I am solely responsible for any and all harm caused by my dog while my dog is attending Doggies’ Friend Day-care, or is using any services provided by Doggies’ Friend.  

  2. I further understand and agree in admitting my dog that Doggies’ Friend has relied on my representation that my dog is in good health and has not harmed or shown aggression or threatening behaviour toward any person or any other dog.  

  3. I further agree to notify Doggies’ Friend of any unwelcome, aggressive, procreative, or dangerous behaviour of my dog that has potential to cause harm to any other pet or individual.  

  4. I further understand that during normal dog play, owner’s dog may sustain injuries.  All dog play is carefully monitored at Doggies’ Friend to avoid injury, but scratches, punctures, torn ligaments, or other injuries that may occur despite the best supervision.  I realise that pads on paws may initially become sensitive, or bothered until my dog becomes used to running on different surfaces.  

  5. I further understand that Doggies’ Friend is a place where dogs co-mingle in groups and I am responsible for the medical treatment of any injuries or illness that my dog receives while at Doggies’ Friend.  I agree to pay all costs for my dog that may arise as a result of injury or illness, including veterinarian care and costs.  I shall pay such costs as a reimbursement immediately upon pick-up of my dog or when the services are been completed.  

  6. I further understand that if I fail to provide proof of current vaccinations or if my dogs’ vaccinations are found to be expired or otherwise incomplete, Doggies’ Friend has the right to refuse service until current proof is provided.    

  7. I further understand and agree that any behavioural or health problems that develop with my dog will be treated as deemed best by the staff at Doggies’ Friend in their sole discretion, and that I will assume full financial responsibility for any and all expenses involved.  I authorise Doggies’ Friend to obtain medical records and/or treatments for my dog in the event of injury or illness from my vet or from the closest veterinary clinic.  By signing this document I further direct said vet to provide such records upon request.    

  8. I further understand that my dog should be castrated (if male when over the age of 6 months) to attend Doggies’ Friend.  Bitches must not be brought in when ‘on heat’.  

  9. I further understand that even if my dog is vaccinated for Bordetella (Kennel Cough) there is a chance that my dog can still contract Kennel Cough.  I agree that I will not hold Doggies’ Friend responsible if my dog contracts Kennel Cough while attending Doggies Friend.  

  10. I further agree to notify Doggies’ Friend of any infectious and/or contagious disease or conditions my dog has been exposed to or is affected by.  Such diseases and conditions include, but are not limited to Distemper, Hepatitis, Kennel Cough (Bordetella), Parvovirus, Corona virus, worms, Lyme disease, Fleas, Pregnancy, Infectious Skin Diseases and Intestinal Parasites.  

  11. I further agree to take any necessary efforts or precautions to insure that my dog is continuously free of contagious, infectious, or otherwise communicable diseases.  I will report to Doggies’ Friend, before arriving at Day-care, any contagious, infectious or otherwise communicable diseases, and will not be allowed to bring my dog to Doggies’ Friend day-care, regardless of scheduled days, until the condition is resolved. Resolution is determined by Doggies’ Friend.  

  12. I allow and consent my dog to being photographed, videotaped, and/or used in any media or advertising by Doggies’ Friend without prior approval by me.  All such photographs, etc. are the property of Doggies’ Friend  

  13. I further understand that my dog has access to a fenced area outside (7 feet) and agree to assume full liability for damages to property or injury to my dog or others if my dog escapes.  

  14. I further agree to pay all fees set forth by Doggies’ Friend and understand that I will be charged in full for my scheduled day regardless of my dog’s attendance

  15. I understand that Doggies Friend is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged toys, leads, collars, beds, tags, clothing or any other item left with my dog.  

  16. I agree to bring my dog wearing a quick release collar.  This is very important, as, for safety reasons, these are the only collars we allow at Doggies’ Friend.  

  17. I agree to ensure my dog has eaten at least 1 hour before arrival at Doggies’ Friend so he/she has time to digest his/her food before all the excitement.  I understand that failure to do so may result in Bloat, which is very dangerous.    

  18. I further understand and agree that each of the foregoing provisions are separate and severable and shall be in force and effect on each and every occasion my dog attends Doggies’ Friend day-care.  This statement shall remain in full force and effect as between the parties until and unless otherwise amended or revoked, cancelled or superseded in writing signed by both parties. 

  19. I understand that 24hours notice ahead of any booked session must be given for cancellation or changes.  Any cancellation or changes within the 24 hour period will be subject to the full price of the session being forfeited or charged.
