Fun Field Access Liability and Agreement to Hold Harmless Waiver
Let’s Speak Dog Ltd, Renée Hall, and all employees of Let’s Speak Dog Ltd, hereafter referred to as Let’s Speak Dog Ltd, is committed to providing programs and activities in a safe manner. We hold the safety of Let’s Speak Dog Ltd members/students, their guest(s) and dog(s) in high regard. Let’s Speak Dog Ltd continually strives to reduce risk and insists that all members and their guest(s) follow the Fun Field Access Rules and instructions that are designed to protect them.
Acceptance of this Waiver and Release and adherence to the Let’s Speak Dog Ltd Fun Field Access are conditions precedent of membership/rental. Memberships are non-transferrable and may be revoked for non-compliance. Persons who choose to become members of Fun Field Access must understand there are inherent risks of injury and damage associated with off-leash dog field access.
You are solely responsible for supervising your dog(s) and determining if your dog(s) is appropriate for an off- leash experience that may include ruts/depression/holes in the field. I understand the Fun Field contains wildlife, and may have groundhog holes, or animal dens on the field. I understand deer run the field, and animal excrement may be in the field.
This Waiver and Release refers to “your dog”, “my dog” or “the owner of the dog” and these terms include you whether or not you are not the legal owner of the dog. You are the person responsible for the dog while using field access.
Warning of Risk
Let’s Speak Dog Fun Field Access is intended to be used as an outlet for dogs and their owners to get exercise, develop a strong bond, and have a place for members to work with their dog(s) on basic training and obedience if they choose. Despite all warnings, rules and precautions, certain dangers still exist. It is virtually impossible to predict all possible situations that could occur in an off-leash field. Risks include: the propensity of any dog to behave in dangerous ways that may result in injury to you, another person with you, your dog or other dogs you allow to come with you to your booking. Other risks include, but are not limited to, the inexperience, negligence or irresponsibility of a dog owner/handler; the inability to predict a dog’s reaction to movement, sounds, objects, persons, or other animals; and actions by the dog due to fright, anger, stress, insect bites or natural reactions such as jumping, pulling, resisting and biting. Other risks include: the hazards associated with environmental and traffic conditions, acts of God, inclement weather, slips and falls, premises’ defects, equipment failure, failure in supervision, and all other circumstances inherent to dog and/or outdoor activities. Children are especially prone to injuries or death from such things as bites or attacks since they sometimes demonstrate behaviors that may seems threatening or prey-like to dogs. In this regard, it must be recognized that it is impossible for Let’s Speak Dog Ltd to guarantee the safety of members, their guest(s) and dog(s).
I acknowledge that Fun Field Access is not directly supervised by any agent of Let’s Speak Dog Ltd, and that neither Let’s Speak Dog Ltd nor the City of Plainfield Township carries insurance to cover my, my guest(s) and dog(s) uses of this field. Each person who uses the Field does so at his or her own risk and assumes the danger of using the Field.
