DOGWORLD DOG PARK LIABILITY WAIVER & RELEASE FOR MEMBERS & GUESTS
Important Information: DogWorld Dog Park is intended to be used as an outlet for dogs and their owners to get exercise, play with their dog(s), develop a strong bond, and do basic training if they choose. DogWorld Dog Park is committed to providing programs and activities in a safe manner. We hold the safety of DogWorld Dog Park members, their guest(s) and dog(s) in high regard and continually strives to reduce risk and insists that all members and their guests follow the DogWorld Dog Park Rules and instructions that are designed to protect them.
Acceptance of this Waiver and Release and adherence to the DogWorld Dog Park Rules are conditions precedent of membership. Memberships are non-transferrable and may be revoked for non-compliance. Persons who choose to become members of DogWorld Dog Park must understand there are inherent risks of injury and damage associated with off-leash dog parks. 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 many other dogs and people. 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 this Park.
Reactive/aggressive dogs will be allowed off leash in DogWorld’s reactive dog area ONLY during scheduled times but must be leashed and under the physical control of the owner or their designated handler at all times in all other areas of the park. DogWorld Dog Park reserves the right to determine if a dog is reactive, aggressive or has dangerous propensities of any kind towards people or other dogs. Maximum time limit of two (2) hours per day/per dog. Dogs will become tired and overstimulated after that amount of time.
Warning of Risk - USE OF DOGWORLD DOG PARK IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. ENTERING DOGWORLD CONSTITUTES A WAIVER, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, AND RELEASE OF DOGWORLD MANAGEMENT, OWNERS AND EMPLOYEES FOR INJURY OR DEATH TO PEOPLE OR DOGS OR OTHER LOSS RELATED TO USE OF THE DOGWORLD FACILITY.
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 dog park. Risks include: the propensity of any dog to behave in dangerous ways that may result in injury to you, another person, your dog or another dog. 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 under the age of 12 years old are not permitted on DogWorld property. 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 DogWorld Dog Park to guarantee the safety of members, their guest(s) and dog(s). I acknowledge that this park is not directly supervised by any agent of DogWorld Dog Park, and that DogWorld Dog Park does not carry insurance to cover myself, my guest(s) and dog(s) uses of this Park. While management does not actively monitor the entire park at all times, management reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove any dog or person for any violation of the rules and regulations of DogWorld or if for any reason management has reason to believe that any person or dog constitutes a danger to themselves or others. No refunds will be provided in such cases.
