Walks take place rain, shine or snow (dangerous weather excluded). WALKS&FUN will attempt to reschedule walks cancelled due to possible dangerous weather conditions.
RETURNING DIRTY DOGS:
Due to the nature of off leash dog walking on trails, dogs can get dirty. After a walk dogs can be wet, dusty, or even muddy, so please be prepared to identify returning entrances during consultation. If your dog doesn't have a designated area, or crating area, please leave a towel near the returning door/mud-room and WALKS&FUN will do their best to wipe down your dog upon drop-off.
Please note: WALKS&FUN is not a grooming service, so your dog will likely require cleaning in certain seasons. Feel free to ask WALKS&FUN about professional grooming and we’ll be happy to help out.
WALKS&FUN takes the safety of dog clients seriously. If your dog is deemed undisciplined, aggressive, or unresponsive the dog will not be accommodated by our services. If your dog does not exhibit these traits during the consultation, but they arise at a later date, WALKS&FUN withholds the option to terminate service immediately.
FLEAS & TICKS:
Ticks and fleas aren't foreign to dogs, particularly off leash in warmer months. WALKS&FUN recommends you check your dog regularly for both and requests that you make alternate arrangements to scheduled walks if your dog is being treated so as to avoid spreading to other dogs in the group.
Kennel Cough is a Canine flu, if your dog is starting to cough, please let WALKS&FUN immediately know. Unfortunately he/she will not be joining the pack for a couple of weeks but there is always the option for the private visit walk so he can still have his stroll midday if necessary!
WALKS&FUN carries a mobile phone for emergencies 250-814-3284. If your dog is lost or hurt the protocol is as follows:
a) Contact emergency phone on client consultation sheet.
b) Contact Animal Services.
c) Return to the vehicle with other dogs.
d) Attempt to locate the missing dog, or if injured, transport the dog to the nearest Veterinarian.
OFF-LEASH WALKS WAIVER:
I have read, understand, and acknowledged WALKS&FUN’s terms and conditions and waiver by submitting the above form. By reading, understanding, and acknowledging the terms and conditions and waiver and proceeding into an agreement and schedule of care with WALKS&FUN I affirm that I understand the inherent risks and hazards associated with the nature of off leash dog walking and WALKS&FUN’s services. These risks also include, but are not limited to risks associated with picking up my dog, dropping off my dog, traveling to and from my home in a vehicle, having my dog around other dogs, people, wildlife, and outdoor environments. WALKS&FUN will take reasonable action to minimize these risks, but I understand it is not always possible to prevent injuries that may occur during off leash walks in outdoor environments.
I, as the dog owner, am fully responsible for the actions of my dog if it causes any damage whatsoever, including, but not limited to, death, damage or injury to itself, or death, damage or injury to other animals, pets, people and property while in the care of WALKS&FUN.
I affirm that I have provided all necessary information to WALKS&FUN and through consultation deem that my dog is suitable to be in the care of WALKS&FUN. I also affirm that I have not witnessed my dog display aggressive tendencies towards people or other animals in the past, or if so, have identified this in my submitted client contact form and/or during consultation. My dog is obedient and capable of following commands, is well behaved and has reliable recall even in distracting environments.
I agree to immediately advise WALKS&FUN of any problems with my dog that could affect his/her behaviour, health, or suitability for off leash pack walks.
In the event of any illness or injury to my dog while in the care of WALKS&FUN, I authorize WALKS&FUN to take my dog to the nearest veterinarian and agree to pay for all veterinary care required in the opinion of the veterinarian.
I agree to indemnify and hold harmless WALKS&FUN against loss or threatened loss or expense by reason of the liability or potential liability of my dog for or arising out of any claims for damages. This includes, but is not limited to, medical attention to people, emergency or veterinary care (including acts of nature, encounters with wild animals, etc.), any damages caused by acts of aggression (biting, attacks, etc.), or any injury caused by my dog toward property, animals and people while in the care of WALKS&FUN. Additionally, any costs associated with the above actions will be wholly reimbursed to WALKS&FUN upon request.
I affirm that my dog is spayed or neutered and up to date with the vaccinations. I understand that regular vaccinations cannot completely guard against illness and disease, and that WALKS&FUN cannot prevent, nor be responsible for any illness my dog might contract. WALKS&FUN shall not be liable for any illness or ailment which a dog may incur while in the presence of other dogs in WALKS&FUN’s care.
I hereby waive and release WALKS&FUN from any and all claims, actions, suits, demands, assessments or judgments asserted and any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys fees and accounting fees to the extent permitted by law) alleged or incurred arising out of or relating to any operations.
