This CDU Training Addendum shall apply to a boarding that includes optional training services provided by CDU at the request of Owner. The affirmative election by Owner to include training services under the “Optional Dog Training” subsection on page 1 of the Boarding Agreement shall constitute Owner’s approval and acceptance of the terms of this CDU Training Addendum. (A)Owner has requested that training be conducted by CDU for the length of stay set forth in the Boarding Agreement. The commands that will be taught on leash/behaviors to be addressed are basic obedience commands such as “sit,” “down,” “come,” etc. Owner understands and agrees that the Dog may be transported for training purposes.
(B)One private lesson is included per week of training and upon completion of the training program Owner will be taught how to maintain the Dog’s new skills and behaviors. The first lesson will be on the day of completion of the training program and will take place at CDU; subsequent lessons will occur either at CDU, in Owner’s home, or an agreed-upon location within four weeks of completion of the program. In-home lessons are only offered if Owner lives within 15 miles of CDU. If the distance is greater and Owner desires an in-home lesson a trip fee will be assessed and must be agreed upon prior to scheduling. It is Owner’s responsibility to schedule these lessons with CDU. Lessons are not timed but typically last between one and two hours. Unused lessons are not refundable.
(C)Owner agrees to pay a training program fee of furnishing training services and not a measure or assurance of goal attainment in the training program. One-half of the fee shall be due when the Dog is dropped off for boarding and the remaining half shall be due when the Dog is picked up at the completion of the boarding stay. The training program fee is in addition to all boarding fees and other charges incurred under the Boarding Agreement.

(D)Owner understands and agrees that successful animal training requires consistent, life-long at-home instruction and reinforcement by Owner as directed by CDU and, when appropriate, follow-up training lessons with CDU. Trained behaviors will fade or extinguish over time without consistent repetition and practice and failure to attend private lessons or diligently reinforce training following the CDU training program will adversely affect the Dog’s ability to retain and maintain the training it has received. Although we are confident in our training methodology and past clients have reported success with our training program, due to the inherent variables and challenges in animal training and the responsibility of Owner to continue the training, there is no assurance that the Dog retains or maintains any of the training that it receives at CDU. Owner is solely responsible for the Dog’s final response to the training and behavior after the training program is completed.
In addition to, and without limitation of, the release and indemnification provisions set forth in the Boarding Agreement, Owner hereby agrees to release, indemnify, hold harmless and defend CDU, its personnel and agents from any and all manner of damages, claims, loss, liabilities, costs or expenses, including, without limitation, attorney’s fees and related costs, arising out of or related to CDU’s training services under this agreement, including, without limitation, any harm the Dog may cause to any persons during or after training.
