Agreement to Hold Harmless - Waiver and Assumption of Risk

Last Posted 7/11/2020

I understand that attendance at a dog training class is not without risk to myself, members of my family, guests who attend, or my dog.  Some dogs to which I will be exposed may be difficult to control and may be the cause of injury even when handled with the greatest of care.  In the case of a junior handler, I also understand that a responsible adult will accompany and stay with the junior handler during each and every class.  Junior handlers must demonstrate the ability to control the dog and must be at least twelve (12) years old.

I hereby waive and release the Truckee Meadows Dog Training Club, hereinafter referred to as the “training organization”, its officers, members and agents from any and all liability of any nature for injury or damages resulting from the action of any dog, and I expressly assume the risk of such damage or injury while attending any training session or any other function of the training organization or while on the grounds or surrounding area thereto.  In consideration of and as inducement to my acceptance in the training class, I hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless the training organization, its trainers, officers, members and agents from any and all claims by any family member or any other person accompanying me to any training session or function of the training organization or while on the grounds or the surrounding area thereto as a result of any action by a dog including my own.
