I, hereby certify that my dog(s): to my knowledge does not have or has not been exposed to Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, Canine Influenza, Canine Cough (Bordetella) or any other communicable disease or parasite within a thirty day period prior to any service at U Dirty Dawg.
I agree to release U Dirty Dawg and its agents and employees from any and all liabilities or claims due to injury to myself, my pet or any other property of mine, which may arise in any way out of services and/or products provided by or as a consequence of my association with U Dirty Dawg.
I further agree to pay for all services due by the date of check-out.
I further understand that if my pet becomes ill and requires professional medical attention or in case of emergency, U Dirty Dawg in its sole discretion may engage the services of Center Grove Animal Clinic (which is located next door and is affiliated with U Dirty Dawg). Owner will first be contacted to authorize any treatment made by Center Grove Animal Clinic and any expenses will be paid by the pet owner. I authorize U Dirty Dawg to contact my veterinarian in order to confirm and/or receive health and vaccination records.
I further acknowledge and understand that every pet reacts differently and that animals, by nature, are unpredictable. If interactive group play with other pets is provided, the pet owner recognizes and accepts potential risks involved with such activity. Pets may and without warning, bite and cause injury to humans and other pets. I acknowledge and understand that there are certain risks involved when allowing dogs to socialize in groups, including but not limited to: dog fights, dog bites, cuts and abrasions and the transmission of disease. With my signature, I acknowledge and accept exclusive and sole responsibility, no matter the cause.
I further acknowledge that U Dirty Dawg is not liable for stress related illness or injury that my pet may cause to him or herself, such as, but not limited to: lick sores, injury due to destructive behavior, consuming parts of the bedding, walls, harness, toys or chews that I provide.
U Dirty Dawg, Inc. reserves the right to charge me for any damage to company property caused by my pet.
I further acknowledge that if my dog is not picked up by noon on the pick up day, I will be charged for a full day of boarding unless I agree to have my dog groomed and then I will only be charged for the groom and I can leave my dog the entire day up until 7:00 p.m.
I understand that Dogs can contract airborne illnesses wherever dogs congregate. Airborne illnesses typically enter a pet care facility through a pet that is incubating and not showing symptoms of illness. No amount of sanitation can prevent a dog from “catching” an airborne bacteria or virus. Puppies, geriatric pets, dog that have never boarded before and dogs that are prone to stress are at a higher risk of contracting an airborne cold or flu. Although the Bordetella vaccine is available, there are many strains that it does not cover.
Parents do not expect schools to pay for medical bills when their child catches a cold or flu; likewise, U Dirty Dawg is not responsible for any medical treatment costs incurred due to a communicable disease, particularly airborne diseases, which are not 100% preventable despite vaccination.
It is required that your pet be on a flea and tick preventative to be admitted into our facility. If any evidence of fleas are seen, your pet will be treated immediately and you will be charged for the flea preventative and treatment.
In case of non-life threatening minor injuries, stress or allergy related symptoms that may occur while your pet is boarding, such as: stomach upset, vomiting, loss of appetite, lick sores, hot spots, minor cuts and scratches during group play with other dogs, I give U Dirty Dawg permission to administer or apply any of the following over the counter remedies to my dog if necessary: Pepto Bismol, Benadryl, triple antibiotic cream, prescription EN gastro canned food.
I certify that I have read and understand the policies of U Dirty Dawg set forth on the preceding pages and that I have read and understand the conditions, and statements of the agreement, including the following.
