Please read carefully before signing. This is a release of liability and waiver of certain legal rights.

In consideration for my being permitted and/or the below identified minor(s) being permitted to participate in the activities of kennel visits, dog sledding, dog sled rides, dog carting, dog cart rides, petting and handling of dogs, skijoring, bikejoring, canicross; and the use of property and animals, I agree to the following Waiver and Release:

I acknowledge that kennel visits, dog sledding, dog sled rides, dog carting, dog cart rides, petting and handling of dogs, skijoring, bikejoring, canicross; and the use of property and animals have inherent risks, hazards, and dangers for anyone that cannot be eliminated. I UNDERSTAND THAT THESE RISKS, HAZARDS, AND DANGERS INCLUDE WITHOUT LIMITATION:

  1. The unpredictability  of  the  dog’s  reaction  to  such  things  as  sounds,  sudden movement, unfamiliar objects, persons, or other animals;
  2. Certain hazards such as surface and sub-surface conditions;
  3. Collision with other animals or objects;
  4. The potential of the participant to act in a negligent manner that may contribute to injury to the participant or others, such as sticking legs or arms out of the sled;
  5. Dog sledding, dog carting, skijoring, canicrossing, and/or bikejoring in rugged country;
  6. Encounters with wildlife, animals, insects, and farm animals;
  7. Temperature extremes;

I understand the risks, hazards and dangers described above and have had the opportunity to discuss them with Katrina Walrath the sole member of Run By Dogs LLC, or the employee(s) thereof.

I believe that I and/or said minor(s) have the physical conditioning and mobility necessary to engage in these activities safely.

 

I, for myself and on behalf of said minor(s), further agree to permit the use of any photos, slides, film or sketches of myself and/or said minor(s) taken during the day’s activities for publicity advertising, promotion or other commercial purposes.
