However, special-needs pets, puppies and senior pets naturally have a higher risk of injury, stress-related illness, or exacerbation of any pre-existing condition. As such, having your special-needs pet, puppy or senior pet attend training you are waiving any claim for injury or illness experienced by your pet while training.

Standard precautions will be used against the injury, escape, or death of your dog(s).

I further understand that even if my dog is vaccinated for Bordatella (Canine Cough) there is a chance that my dog may still be able to contract Canine Cough, and agree that I will not hold K9 Elementary responsible if my dog(s) contracts Canine Cough.
vi) I further understand and agree that pre-paid packages are non-refundable and expire in a set period from the date of purchase. Fees are due and payable prior to training.
