The Mutt Hutt Ltd. Authorization, Acknowledgement and Waiver
1.) I authorize The Mutt Hutt Ltd. to maintain my credit card number on file and charge services rendered and/or purchases made against the card at the prices then in effect at the time of the transaction, including, without limitation, charges for day care, overnight stays, mutt-wash, late fees and veterinary care as required. I specifically agree that my dog shall not leave The Mutt Hutt Ltd. until all charges are paid to The Mutt Hutt Ltd.
2.) I agree to keep my pet in my control with a leash at all times while in the lobby of The Mutt Hutt Ltd.’s facilities. I will not enter the play or grooming area without permission from The Mutt Hutt staff or management.
3.) If, in my absence, my pet should be injured or ill or is otherwise deemed by The Mutt Hutt Ltd. to require immediate veterinary care, The Mutt Hutt Ltd. is authorized to consult with my veterinarian for treatment and guidance. If my veterinarian is unavailable, The Mutt Hutt Ltd. is authorized to utilize the services of any other reputable veterinarian (Gateway Animal Clinic). I understand that I am responsible for any charges with respect to such veterinary care.
4.) I have read and understood the Rules and Policies of The Mutt Hutt Ltd., and I ensure the discipline and comportment of my dog in accordance with those Rules and Policies. I understand that The Mutt Hutt Ltd. reserves the right to refuse the admittance to and/or use of its facilities of ANY dogs who, in The Mutt Hutt Ltd.’s sole unfettered determination, are not appropriate animals to participate in the activities available at The Mutt Hutt Ltd., including but not limited to dogs that act aggressively, are undisciplined, evidence inappropriate behavior or who may otherwise be a danger to themselves or other animals or persons.
5.) I acknowledge that dogs are encouraged to socialize and exercise at The Mutt Hutt Ltd. and that injuries either to dogs or owners or their guests might reasonably be foreseen to result from playing that may occur at or around The Mutt Hutt Ltd. I agree for myself, my employees, my invitees (including, but not limited to, anyone I authorize to pick up or drop off my dog) and my guests to assume the risks and hazards that might reasonably be expected to arise from such use and the presence of animals. I agree that The Mutt Hutt Ltd., its principals and its employees, shall not be responsible for injuries to others (or their pets) who may be injured by my dog or by my acts or omissions or the acts or omissions of my guests, employees and invitees, and I shall indemnify The Mutt Hutt Ltd., its principals and its employees, for any and all costs, damages, claims or expenses including reasonable The Mutt Hutt Ltd., its principals and its employees, harmless from and I shall indemnify The Mutt Hutt Ltd., its principals and its employees, for any and all costs, damages, claims or expenses including reasonable attorneys’ fees that may result from our use, or the use by our dog, of The Mutt Hutt Ltd. facilities, including, without limitation, incidents associated with the walking or the transporting of our dog outside The Mutt Hutt Ltd. facilities.
6.) I attest that my dog is fully vaccinated against Rabies, Distemper, Parvo & Bordetella and that I will make sure that I continue to annually vaccinate my dog against these illnesses and provide The Mutt Hutt Ltd. with a vaccination certificate verifying the updating of these vaccinations. If, for whatever reason, either by neglect or design, I do not vaccinate my dogs against these illnesses, despite the fact most veterinarians recommend that dogs vaccinated regularly (usually every year), I take full responsibility for any consequence to my animal and/or myself and/or any other animal and/or person. If my dog is a puppy, I understand that most veterinarians recommend that puppies not be exposed to other dogs until they have had at least two, if not all three sets of puppy vaccinations. By allowing my dog to be at The Mutt Hutt Ltd. for daycare or any other reason, without being fully vaccinated, I take full responsibility for any consequence to my animal and/or myself and/or any other animal and/or person. I hold The Mutt Hutt Ltd., its principals, agents and employees, harmless for any illness my pet may contract as a result of exposure to other animals, people or the facility at The Mutt Hutt Ltd.
7.) I attest to the fact that my dog is using flea and heartworm preventative and to the best of my knowledge my dog does NOT have fleas. If I am mistaken and my dog does have fleas or gets fleas due to lack of flea protection or just due to exposure to other dogs, I take full responsibility for any consequence to my animal. I hold The Mutt Hutt Ltd. and the owner(s) of the infesting dog, together with their principals, agents and employees, harmless and indemnify for any resulting flea infestation/or complications and/or illness resulting from infestation while my animal is in The Mutt Hutt Ltd.’s care.
8.) I attest to the fact that to the best of my knowledge my dog is spayed or neutered. If this statement is false and an unwanted pregnancy results, I take full responsibility for any and all consequence to my animal. I hold The Mutt Hutt Ltd. and the owner(s) of the impregnating dog, together with their principals, agents and employees, harmless and indemnify them for any resulting pregnancy and/or complications and/or illness resulting from such pregnancy while my animal is in The Mutt Hutt Ltd.’s care.
9.) I waive trial by jury of any and all issues arising in any action, proceeding or otherwise between me, my guests, employees and invitees, and The Mutt Hutt Ltd., its principals and employees, upon, under, or in connection with this Authorization, Acknowledgment and Waiver, and my use and the use by my pet of The Mutt Hutt Ltd.’s facilities.
10.) I agree to pay The Mutt Hutt Ltd. reasonable attorneys’ fees and all costs and other expenses incurred in any collection or attempted collection (whether or not litigation is actually commenced by The Mutt Hutt Ltd.) relative to the obligations assumed by me under this Agreement.
11.) By signing below, I certify to The Mutt Hutt Ltd. the accuracy of all information given about my dog and agree to comply with all of The Mutt Hutt Ltd.’s Rules & Policies, Grooming Release and Hold Harmless Agreement and Electronic Transaction Disclosure and Consent, which I acknowledge having read and fully understood. I certify that I am the owner of this animal and I am authorized to make decisions about my animal’s health and safety. I specifically further represent that my dog has not been exposed to rabies, distemper or other disease within a thirty (30) day period prior to being left for daycare, special events or bathing.
