Our Board & Train Agreement

I understand that dog training is not without risk to me, members of my family or my dog.I agree that in the event of injury to me, my family, my dog(s), or my personal property, I will hold Jas Leverette, California K9 Solutions® LLC, Cali K9® trainers, and the property owner(s) where the training is held harmless from any and all liability for any loss, damage or injury to any person, animal, or property, that may have arisen out of, or in any way connected with, participation in a board and train program, other training and socialization sessions, group classes, use of the Cali K9® training methods, or other activity held by Jas Leverette, California K9 Solutions® LLC, Cali K9® trainers, assistants and representatives.

Furthermore, I assume all responsibility for any loss, damage or injury to myself or others, my dog(s), other dogs or property, by my dog’s actions or by me. I certify that my dog does not display severe human aggression and/or separation anxiety and that participation in the board and train program will be confirmed by a pre-enrollment evaluation. I understand California K9 Solutions® LLC aka Cali K9® reserves the right to determine if any dog or human behavior is inappropriate for the board and train learning environment and safety of the participants, trainers and staff.

I understand that I must be committed to this training and ongoing home reinforcement in order to be successful and that the success of any board and train program depends on my attendance at any included private training session(s) and group classes, working with my canine on a daily basis after board and train, and if needed, attending training sessions and group classes on a long-term basis. I understand this training package expires 90 days from the date of completion of the board & train program, unless otherwise specified.

I understand that dog training includes learning and reinforcing the Cali K9® training methods, terminology and techniques in board & train, private session(s) and group classes, daily practice at home after training is complete, multiple owners being on the same page, and the health and age of my dog. Since Cali K9® can’t “go home with me” to monitor the environment, consistency and daily ongoing training by owners and family members, I understand there are no specific promises, time limits or guarantees.

I understand that this board and train package is not transferable to any other dog or party not listed on this contract. If I cancel or fail to show up for my private or semi-private session(s) with less than 48 hours advance notice to both the office and my trainer, I will forfeit that session without refund or rescheduling.

I understand that training of any type is an activity requiring both me and my dog to be reasonably fit. My veterinarian has examined my dog and agrees that my dog is healthy and in condition to perform in this board and train program. My dog has been examined, treated, and vaccinated for everything listed in the Cali K9® Health Policy, and everything is current. I have documentation to support this and will provide Cali K9® with copies prior to, or at the time of drop off.

I understand that my dog may experience the following issues during his/her stay:

Though carefully supervised, I understand that my dog may get a few minor cuts, nicks, scratches & abrasions as he/she learns to use the agility course and socializes and plays with other dogs.

I understand he/she may attempt to become an ‘escape artist’ in his/her crate or kennel, especially if he/she has never experienced being in them. I understand that a few minor self-inflicted scratches or cuts may occur in the beginning.

I understand that my dog may go through a short, stressful period when adapting to a new environment, which is very different from being in my home. I understand it’s possible my dog won’t eat as much at first.

In addition, I understand my dog will burn more calories than they do at home. In the facility, dogs will train, practice agility, attend day camp and group classes, and move around a lot!

I understand trainers check each dog’s weight upon arrival and monitor it every few days. Dogs are examined and observed daily. I understand I will be notified if food needs to be increased or if there is anything else that needs my immediate attention. I agree to be available by phone, text, and/or email in the unlikely event that a trainer needs to contact me immediately for any reason.

I understand that training of any type is an activity requiring both me and my dog to be reasonably fit. My veterinarian has examined my dog and agrees that my dog is healthy and in condition to perform in this board and train program. My dog has been vaccinated for distemper, parvovirus and rabies, all shots are current, and I have documentation to support this.

My dog is not pregnant and is free of any infectious disease, internal and external parasites, contagious respiratory problems, and skin disorders. I agree to notify Cali K9® of any allergies or sensitivities to metal or other substances.

I give Cali K9® permission to take my dog to the company vet for evaluation and any needed medical attention. I will immediately notify Cali K9® if vet re-evaluation or care is needed after board and train ends. Cali K9® is not responsible for outside vet bills during or after their stay.

If my dog goes into heat during board and train, training will resume after my dog is no longer in heat.

I understand that I may cancel this contract without penalty or obligation at any time before midnight of the third calendar day following the date on which I signed the contract. Should I choose to cancel this contract prior to the deadline, I must provide written notice of the termination by email to training@calik9.com. I understand that I am responsible for services already received at Cali K9® if I choose to cancel this contract before the deadline, and that I will be charged for boarding and day camp at the single day rate and at the individual trainer's hourly rate. After the cancellation deadline, I understand there are no refunds for unused board and train time, sessions or classes if I drop out before the end of the program, transfers to other dogs or handlers, or unused private sessions or classes after the package expires.
