INDEMNITY AGREEMENT AND RELEASE OF ALL LIABILITY

FOR USE OF DOG PARKER SERVICES

As the owner or legal caretaker (“Dog Owner) of the below-referenced dog (“Owner’s Dog” or “my dog”) I have read, understand and agree to the following:

Terms and Conditions

Dog Parker, Inc. (“Dog Parker”) and its employees, volunteers, officers, directors, partners, agents, insurers, affiliates, and assigns, will exercise the utmost of due care to protect the health and safety of my dog while using the services associated with the Dog Parker doghouses (“Services”).  In consideration of the Services and as an express condition thereof, I hereby waive and release, on behalf of myself, and my heirs, personal representatives and assigns, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any and all claims, including those relating to damage, illness, injury, death and/or escape,  against Dog Parker and Dog Parker’s employees, volunteers, officers, directors, partners, agents, insurers, affiliates, store hosts, and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”) arising out of my dog’s use of the Services. I further agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Dog Parker harmless against any claims by persons or entities other than myself related to my dog’s participation in the Services.

By enrolling my dog in the Services, I warrant and represent that I am the legal owner or caretaker of my dog and assume all risks, dangers and responsibility for injuries to my dog. I understand and agree that I am solely responsible for any harm to my dog while my dog is utilizing the Services. I understand and agree that I am solely responsible for any harm or damage caused by my dog while utilizing the Services. I agree to notify Dog Parker of any and all alleged problems with the doghouses within twenty-four (24) hours of my dog’s use of the Services. 

I understand that before my dog can utilize the Services, all paperwork must be provided to a Dog Parker agent, including, but not limited to: Service Contract and Client Information Form. 

Health of Dog

I understand and agree that my dog is in good health and has not been ill with any communicable disease or parasites within the last thirty (30) days. I agree that my dog will at all times be current on its vaccinations.

I agree that my dog does not have any condition that could potentially jeopardize the health of other dogs and/or people.

I understand that even with vaccinations, illnesses in dogs may occur.  Particularly, I understand that even if my dog is vaccinated for Bordetella (commonly known as Kennel Cough) there is a chance that my dog can still contract Kennel Cough. I agree that Dog Parker will not be responsible if my dog becomes ill, including if my dog contracts Kennel Cough.   

Dog Parker requires that all dogs must:

·       Be current on rabies, distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, parvovirus and Bordetella vaccinations;

·       Be at least 6 months of age;

·       Be in general good health;

·       Be free of ticks and fleas;

·       Be leashed when entering and exiting the doghouses; and

·       Have absolutely no history of aggression with other dogs and/or people.

I understand that Dog Parker may, in its sole discretion and at any time, request proof of the above requirements, including but not limited to copies of vaccination certificates. I further understand that failure to abide by these requirements or comply with Dog Parker’s requests for documentation will result in immediate refusal of access to the doghouses and a ban on all future use of the Services. 

Emergencies

Dog Parker is authorized to seek veterinary assistance in the event of an emergency. I grant Dog Parker permission to take any and all steps necessary to obtain medical treatment for my dog and assume full responsibility for any and all charges incurred therewith, including but not limited to diagnosis, treatment, grooming, medical supplies and boarding. I understand that service at my dog’s veterinarian may not be feasible in the event of illness or injury and further consent to any professional veterinarian being retained to render care for my dog.

I understand that, in the event of an emergency, Dog Parker will make reasonable efforts to ensure the safety of my dog which may include removing them from the doghouse and contact me and/or my designated emergency contact regarding any treatment, illness, injury or potential problems as soon as the condition is deemed non-life threatening and/or contact is possible. 

Personal Property

I understand that Dog Parker is not liable for any lost, stolen or damaged personal property belonging either to me or to my dog. I further understand that if my dog causes any property damage to the doghouses, I assume all responsibility for the full cost of all treatment, repairs and replacements.

Fees

I agree to the fees and charges associated with the use of the Services and agree to pay for all charges immediately after I pick up my dog from the Dog Parker location.

Time Limit, Abandonment

I understand and agree that if my dog is not picked up by the end of the Dog Parker regular business day (if set business hours are being kept) or within the stated time limits (90 minutes per session) and (3 hours per 12-hour time period), then I hereby expressly authorize Dog Parker to take whatever action is deemed necessary for the continuing care of my dog, including, but not limited to, doggie daycare and animal boarding. I agree to pay Dog Parker any and all costs of continuing such care immediately upon retrieval of my dog.

I understand that if my dog is left for more than the maximum time allowed (90 minutes per session) and (3 hours per 12-hour time period), I will pay $5 per minute for every minute over the stated time limits until such time as the dog is retrieved from the doghouse by a Dog Parker representative or myself. If continuing care action is required, an administrative fee of $200 will be incurred in addition to the cost of the continuing care.

Further, I understand that if I do not pick up my dog within ten (10) days from the boarding location, Dog Parker shall be authorized to proceed according to the local municipal code governing abandonment of animals and the authorities will be notified.

Photos and Videos

Occasionally, photos or video footage may be taken of dogs utilizing the Services. I agree to allow Dog Parker to use any image, video or likeness of my dog taken while using the Services for marketing, educational or promotional materials, understanding that the resulting photos, videos or likenesses are the sole property of Dog Parker. 

Admittance

Dog Parker reserves the right to refuse admittance to any dog or to dismiss any dog that does not meet Dog Parker’s health, temperament or other standards. This determination shall be made at the sole discretion of Dog Parker.

Dog Parker is committed to the safety and care of dogs and will promptly notify the authorities of any signs of neglect and/or abandonment. 

I understand and expressly agree that each and every of the foregoing provisions shall be in full force and effect and shall apply to each and every occasion on which my dog uses the Services. This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as between the parties until and unless otherwise cancelled or superseded by written documentation signed by the parties.
