Doggy Day Care
We have provided our doggie daycare contract so that you may further understand what is required of you and your dog before enrolling in daycare. You will be asked to read and sign this contract at the time of your dog’s acceptance into our daycare program.I, ______________________________________(owner), hereby certify that my dog(s) _________________________________ is/are in good health and have not been ill with any communicable condition in the last 30 days. I further certify that my dog(s) have not harmed or shown any aggressive or threatening behavior towards any person or any other dog. Golden Ridge Farm (GRF) agrees to exercise due and reasonable care in the handling of dogs, and in keeping the facility properly enclosed and sanitary. All dogs are cared for by GRF without liability on GRFs behalf for loss or damage from disease, theft, ﬁre, death, escape, injury, or harm to persons, other dogs, or property by said dog(s), or for other unavoidable causes.
I have read and understand the following:
1. I understand that I am solely responsible for any harm caused by my dog(s) while my dog(s) is/are in the care of GRF and release GRF of any liability arising from my dog’s attendance and participation at the daycare. 2. I recognize that there are inherent risks of illness or injury when animals are allowed to be in close contact with one another. Such risks include, but are not limited to, problems resulting from rough play and canine cough (doggie colds). 3. I further understand and agree that in admitting my dog(s) to GRF, the staff at GRF have relied on my representation that my dog(s) is/are in good health and have not harmed or show aggressive or threatening behavior towards any person or any other dog. 4. I understand that my dog(s) will be playing in open areas with other dog(s) and accept that when dogs play in groups, they will get dirty, and nicks and scratches may occur, as well as any other inherent risks that are involved and I hereby release GRF of any liability; I further understand and agree that GRFs staff and volunteers will not be liable for any or all problems which may develop. 5. I further understand and agree that any problems which develop with my dog(s) will be treated as deemed by GRFs staff and volunteers, at their sole discretion, and that I assume full financial responsibility for any and all expenses involved if I or GRFs decides to obtain medical treatment. 6. I accept that if my dog causes any excessive damage to the facility that I could be asked to pay for repairs. 7. I understand that if my dog is not spayed or neutered by 7-8 months of age, they will not be allowed to participate in daycare with other dogs, or they will have to stay home. 8. I further understand that if my dog shows any signs of aggression towards other dogs, that their acceptance into daycare will be reevaluated. They will be given between 1 and 3 chances, depending on the situation surrounding the aggression before they are forbidden to participate in daycare. 9. Human aggressive dogs, or dogs with fear issues, will not be allowed to stay at GRFs Daycare. 10. As a responsible pet owner, I promise to keep my pet(s) up-to-date on all vaccines, including bordetella and rabies, and all other state required vaccines. It is required by GRF that you provide official updated records from a veterinarian before you are allowed to attend daycare. GRF is not responsible for informing of due dates on vaccines nor will GRF provide vaccine records for any reason. Furthermore, when pet(s) vaccines are updated, a copy must be provided to GRF in order for our records to stay updated, otherwise GRF will assume that your pet(s) are not current on vaccines and will be asked not to attend daycare until 7 days after actual vaccines are administered. FEES: $33 a day and $23 for a half day (pick up before 2:00 pm). There is a $10 fee for picking up late. DAYS AND HOURS: Monday through Friday from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm. Should you need to pick up or drop off prior to or after those hours arrangements can be made. EMERGENCY: In the event of an emergency, GRF staff will first attempt to contact the owner, followed by an attempt to contact the emergency contact person listed. GRF may also directly contact Medfield Veterinary Clinic, if the circumstances are deemed such that immediate treatment is necessary. GRF staff retains sole discretion in emergency matters, without liability, and the owner of the dog agrees to promptly pay for all medical treatments received. I certify that I have read and understand the policies of GRF as set forth on the preceding page by initialing each section and that I have read and understand the conditions and statement of this agreement. I acknowledge and accept that all the above policies refer to daycare, training and overnight stays, and this release serves as accepting these conditions for both services. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ SIGNATURE ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ DATE
