Agreement to Hold Harmless and Assumption of Risk
I waive all legal rights against and release Manhattan Dog Training and Behavior Center, Inc., its owners, employees and/or agents. (collectively referred to as “MDT” and also known as Andrea Arden Dog Training) from all liability of any nature for injury or damage which I, members of my family, my dog, or other guests who may attend (collectively referred to as “Attendees”) may suffer, including, but not without limitation, any injury or damage resulting from (1) the actions (including but not limited to acts of negligence) of MDT or another person or dog attending any obedience class, a training seminar, a “fun day” or a private session (collectively referred to as “Classes”) on the MDT training grounds, the area surrounding the training grounds, or on my own property and (2) any advice or instruction given by MDT to me or any Attendees.
I waive my legal rights and release MDT after MDT has informed me that attendance at the Classes may pose risks to myself and other Attendees because some of the dogs to which I/we may be exposed may be difficult for any handler to control and may be the cause of injury (i.e. dog bite) to any of the Attendees. This is true even when the dogs are handled with the greatest amount of care. I fully understand that regardless of the training received by any dog, a dog always possess the propensity to bite.
I waive my legal rights and release MDT voluntarily and without relying on representations made to me by MDT. I acknowledge that MDT has made no representations, guarantees, or implied or express promises as to the outcomes of the participation of me or any of the Attendees in the Classes. I acknowledge that MDT offers instruction in the area of dog training and is not a place of recreation.
In consideration of and to induce MDT to accept me and my dog into the Classes, I agree to indemnify and hold MDT harmless from any and all claims, including claims by any Attendee that is the result of any action by any dog, including my own.
I acknowledge that MDT does not refund fees for classes or private lessons, allow for make-up classes or changing courses.
I HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREE TO ALL OF THE PROVISIONS CONTAINED ABOVE.
